For the first episode of the year, Bonni and I responded to questions on leadership development, retirement conversations, work-life balance, and using assessments. You can find more details and the resources we recommend on this episode notes.
Are you a manager, executive, or business owner who is ready to accelerate your leadership skills? Do you find yourself seeking objective perspective that you can’t find internally? Do you wish for a team of trusted advisors who’d provide regular coaching for the toughest situations and decisions?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you may benefit from discovering more about the Coaching for Leaders Academy, facilitated personally by me. Applications open next week — but you can get early information by joining the early alert list for the Academy.
