CASE STUDY

Individual Coaching

Melissa met Christine at a pivotal moment in her career. A smart, professional, purpose-driven leader, Melissa was now moving into a senior-level leadership position at a university. She felt unprepared and unsure of her own abilities and qualifications and wondered if she could successfully lead, engage, and inspire her stakeholders. Specifically, Melissa’s questions were:

 

  1. What are my intentions for my career – where I am today, and where do I want to be tomorrow?

     

  2. How do I grow into a leadership position where outcomes are achieved through influence and relationships?

     

  3. How can I be a true leader while also being true to myself?
