Leading In the Middle
For managers, supervisors & mid-level professionals (anyone who is a boss and has a boss) to show up as their best self and make a meaningful impact as a leader.
Leading In the Middle is 1:1 coaching that empowers you to enjoy a healthy balance between your professional goals and personal needs. Talk out challenges, frustrations and take charge of your experience at work.
Build on your values, strengths and emotional intelligence for a strong inner compass to guide you, stretch your abilities, be an authentic & empathetic leader and manage stress for a sustainable, thriving career that creates opportunities for professional growth and personal well-being.
*Check with your workplace about being reimbursed for coaching either through a professional/personal development plan or health/well-being plan.
As a leader from the middle,
you’re a motivator, confidante, coach, trainer, strategist, problem solver…
you do it all!
Who really knows what’s going on in your organization? I bet you do. You directly impact the performance of your team as well as your customers’ experiences.
You are responsible for implementing changes and, of course, that often brings up a lot of emotions, opinions and discussions!
Added to that, while you’re motivating and inspiring your team to stretch their abilities to meet new challenges, you’re also working through your own feelings and opinions about what’s happening.
Managing all the demands on your time, different personalities, expectations and situations that come up unexpectedly is mentally taxing.
It’s easy to lose track of yourself, and over time that leads to exhaustion, anxiety and stress. Because of this, you need just as much, if not more, support to succeed than those in positions above you. I personally know this to be true! I was a front-line supervisor at a public library for 20 years. That experience and my deep interests in personal development, well-being at work and emotional intelligence is why I help people who lead from the middle thrive at work.
I coach 1:1 with my signature program, 3 Good Things to Transform Your Life & Career
Thriving As A Midlife Leader
Get the confidential and personalized support you need to enjoy leading yourself and your team.

Play to Your Strengths
When using your strengths, you:
- Have a sense of energy and engagement; this is called flow
- Often lose your sense of time because you are so engrossed in the task
- Rapidly learn new information and approaches
- Show high levels of performance
- Want to do things that use your strengths, even when you are tired or stressed
While it’s helpful (and often necessary) to be aware of and manage your weaknesses, you are much more likely to find success by growing the talents and abilities that are most natural to you.
Show up in a way that allows you, and those around you, to feel good.
When you lead from the middle, strong emotional intelligence is your biggest asset to enjoying and succeeding in your role.
We’ll work on topics like:
- Managing stress
- Adapting to/leading change with more ease and less angst,
- Building relationships including dealing with conflict and difficult interactions,
- Setting boundaries and incorporating habits that support authentic leadership, well-being and peace of mind

How We’ll Work Together
Photography is my creative outlet. I love being open to the moment and taking pictures that capture what’s unique and interesting in whatever environment I’m in.
That’s also how I show up as a coach to help you re-frame challenges, focus on what matters & see yourself in a different light to bring out the best of who you naturally are.
- thinking and accountability partner,
- insight provider and
- ask deep questions that widen your perspective to find the answers you need within yourself to move forward.
You’ll have a confidential space to let down your guard and show up as you are, without judgment. We’ll have transformative conversations where we’ll:
- work through limiting beliefs,
- change the stories you’re telling yourself about what you can and cannot do and
- celebrate your aha moments
