Welcome to LeadershipTraction®

Nuanced leadership development coaching and conversation that helps executives, directors, managers, and those who WANT more traction – and NEED more traction – actually ACHIEVE more traction.

Being a leader is challenging work. Being a CAPABLE leader is even more challenging.

Leaders, such as yourself, face an increasingly complex array of tasks, responsibilities, deadlines, conflicts, goals and objectives, and rising expectations with little, if any, time to think or plan or do much more than just react in the moment and hope for the best.

And wouldn’t it be great if that’s all there was?! Because that’s not even the hard part.


Becoming a Better Leader is an INTENTIONAL Activity

Face it: Your leadership reputation – and overall success as a leader – is far more defined by how quickly and effectively you prioritize and handle the problems and opportunities you’re NOT quite sure how to handle, than by how well you do with whatever you already know how to do or already have done before.

And that sort of traction requires intention, nuance, clarity of thought, and the ability to leverage ALL of your resources in continuing and increasingly skillful ways. That means thinking more strategically, demonstrating greater tactical precision, fully considering the downstream and unintended implications of your actions BEFORE you act, and better understanding and articulating not only WHAT you’re all trying to achieve, but WHY you’re all trying to achieve it.

And that does not, and cannot, happen without intention.


Yes, It’s Time, and YES, You’re Ready – Let’s Talk!

Many (most?) leaders are not nearly as intentional or nuanced in their approach as they SHOULD be – as would serve them TO be. As a result, they end up making things MUCH more complicated for themselves and the people they work with, without even realizing it! How to tell if that’s what YOU’RE doing?

  • Do you have trouble holding your staff accountable for their actions, commitments and deliverables?
  • Is communicating effectively up or down or across the organization often challenging or bewildering for you?
  • How frustrated do you get when stressed, faced with bad news, or simply displeased by plans not going as planned?
  • Are you reluctant to address conflict or face challenging, difficult, or important conversations in a timely and constructive manner?
  • Has perfectionism ever lessened your productivity, responsiveness, flexibility, value-added, etc., etc., etc.?
  • Does busyness and distraction lead you to inadvertently focus on the wrong things in the wrong ways or, worse yet, cause you to not even realize that’s what you’re doing?

These are the kind of leadership mistakes that routinely affect, and are affected by, a leader’s power, presence, impact, influence, civility, respect, confidence, focus, skill, precision, mindfulness, ease, and overall success – including, maybe you?
