  Tools for Transformational Leadership

A client of mine who runs a large non-profit organization recently made the transition from managing to leading his team. In the beginning of his transition, he was frustrated with his team’s lack of motivation and low productivity.

In our work together, we discussed the difference between leading and managing, and he saw that he was still hanging onto his management style even though it was no longer appropriate. His tendency to micro-manage was frustrating his people, wearing him out, and creating more stress for everyone. He realized that it was time for him to grow.

We created a plan to help him become comfortable with inspiring his team to take full responsibility for doing their jobs, to focus on his vision for the organization, and to stay open to learning and growing throughout this transition.

A year later, as the result of setting a clear intention, doing his inner work, and taking conscious action, his team is responding: Most of them have stepped up to the plate, and those who were unwilling to change have been replaced by those who are more suitable for that position. Everyone seems happier and more motivated, and he is now free to devote more time to his strengths: writing, presenting, and expanding the company into new ventures. 

He credits the following two coaching tools to his ability to navigate change successfully:

  • Using the Power of Pause to stay present and grounded, no matter what is going on   
  • Integrating the Enneagram to understand his patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving so he can understand and improve how he functions with his team 


  Deep Coaching using the Enneagram

Over the last nine months I have been immersed in an incredible coach training program called Deep Coaching1  - and brought to my clients the benefits. Some of them report that they have finally freed themselves from patterns of behavior that have held them hostage for years.

Deep Coaching is a mature, presence-based approach to healthy adult development that integrates the Enneagram, a powerful tool for self-awareness.

This remarkable methodology helps people unhook from habitual patterns and conditioned thinking that obscures essence, so they can become more conscious, access higher levels of intelligence, and achieve results beyond what they knew to be possible.

As a newly certified Deep Coaching Practitioner and mentor, I would like to offer you a two-session package so you experience this powerful work for yourself:

  • An Enneagram typing session to help determine your dominant Enneatype
  • Followed by a coaching session which will demonstrate the power of using the Enneagram to address your current life challenges.

For a limited time, I am offering this two-session package for FREE!  Please contact me to schedule your appointments.

  How to use The Power of Pause, starting today:

• Next time you wait in line, take a deep breath and sense the ground under your feet.

• If you have to make a difficult phone call, first give yourself – and the person you’re calling - some appreciation, and then pick up the phone.

• Before you fall asleep, recall one thing you did in the day that you feel good about.

• “When you find yourself on the side of the majority, pause and reflect.”
~Mark Twain

Stress Reduction Group for Your Organization

Research shows that executives who run treatment facilities experience higher turnover
rates than those in any other industry.2 Mounting pressure on any organization’s team can increase the rate of:

• Stress
• Exhaustion
• Difficulty concentrating
• Irritability
• Decreased levels of work   satisfaction
• Compassion Fatigue

And they are more likely to leave their jobs.

These half-hour stress reduction groups provide your staff with the tools and support they need to overcome these challenges, give themselves a much-needed break, and reinvigorate their passion and purpose.

If you are located in the Los Angeles area, Linda will travel to you. If you are outside the LA area, she will conduct the group as a teleconference!
