1) General Manager, High Tech Start-Up This leader needed to be the smartest in the room, and often was. He was charming and gracious with clients, but demanding and harsh with his team. He had been given feedback about his impact but seemed not to care. I spent 2 months building a relationship with him and trying to see the world from his perspective. He was then able to begin opening up, and we were able to look at his goals and the feedback he had received.

He began to realize how the churn and anxiety he created on his team was hurting him. He then revealed that he lived with a great deal of stress day to day. His irritability was often driven by the intense pressure he put on himself. I taught him some mindfulness techniques, and we examined what goals gave him a real sense of meaning, accomplishment and purpose. This analysis provoked him to look at his behavior and how he was living out of sync with his values. I was then able to develop an action plan with him that reassured him he would not have to give up his high standards, but would in fact enable him to get more from his people and reduce the constant turnover.

He still occasionally slips back into old habits, but he now has ways to remind himself of his real priorities and techniques to manage the stress and pressure he puts on himself. Success for him was not derailing, and learning to live a more fulfilling and rounded life.

2) CEO and Chief Investment Officer, Asset Management Firm I first began working with this leader when he was the Chief Investment Officer of a Fortune 500 firm. He was brilliant intellectually, but had a hard time engaging followers and influencing peers. He was able to develop these skills and flex his style a great deal over the 6 months we worked together. He then left to join a smaller asset management firm, and reached out to me again to help him as he was on track to become the CEO. He was able to develop his strategic thinking skills and vision so that he impressed the board and was promoted. I then helped him learn how to think about the new demands of his role and how to manage the multiple constituents that he now serves. He is now excited about successfully growing his firm and positioning it for the future.
