Life has not always been the quality, peace and success that I enjoy today. Life was good but I was never arriving at who I thought I really was and to my full potential.
A divorce in my 50’s and suddenly I was lost – really lost. Let me be candid…the divorce was my fault and I knew it but I did not have the foundation that I thought was mine. I stumbled around for several years until I was fortunate to be selected to become an Executive Recruiter to banks and credit unions across the US. However, their business model meant that I had to become a Certified Leadership Coach. This certification was the transformation that I did not realize I needed – but boy I was so grateful.
As a result, I became the #1 Executive Recruiter for my firm and they made me President of that division. I also served as an Executive Coach to CEO’s and their teams. I founded Executive Leadership Institute, Inc. in 2008 and my former clients and CEO’s sought me out to support their needs. In the 14 years since I have never solicited anyone and all my business has been by referral.
Am I saying that life has no problems now? Not so! I am saying that there is a big difference.
After forming my company in 2008, financial services hit a recession and I lost all my contracts. BUT…because I had a new confidence and mindset, I was sought out by community leaders to develop local business owners and then became the CEO of an Economic Development non-profit. In 2012 my former clients found me on LInkedIn and retained me to go back into coaching full time. At the time of this writing that is over 10 years ago and life keeps getting better and better.
Now I “get to” work with stellar CEO’s developing their executives and teams. What do I and my team do? We help leaders tap into their inner power that is waiting in their minds and learn to think and move in a more powerful and rewarding manner.
