Leadership Coaching

We have found executives reach out for coaching for many reasons.  On the surface, leaders try to bring a dysfunctional team together, recover after a low engagement survey, project failure, or to influence important change in the organization.  

 

Many outstanding performers promoted into leadership need support in learning how to lead, motivate and give feedback.   As we deepen into the inquiry process, leaders also seek renewal, help with self-regulation and communication, staying motivated and balancing work and family life. 

 

Since our approaches are integrative, all coaching serves to elevate the leader in all areas of their life, including their personal and familial connections.  

We help create transformational leadership by fusing Eastern and Western modalities - the art of living at your best with the science of leadership.  We impact leadership performance at every level of experience - mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually (called integral leadership). 

 

The Moksha Coaching Process will Develop within Your Leadership …

  • the capacity to model more authenticity and accountability

  • the ability to inspire, coach, and lead powerful teams

  • the process to ‘self-regulate’ and to lead from a full-embodied presence 

  • the capacity solve problems while staying grounded

  • practices to manage and learn from emotions, manage stress, stay calm under pressure, increase creativity, and harness more energy

  • tools to develop people, communicate more effectively, give and provide needed feedback, manage dynamic, complex relationships, and build better, more collaborative networks.  

 

We engage in a deep, intra-personal process with each leader touching all aspects of experience – work and home; mental and emotional.   We utilize self-assessments, team-based (360) assessments, qualitative interview feedback, transpersonal self-inquiry, self-care practices, therapeutic dialogue, and role-play throughout our coaching.   Modalities are based both in science and in mindful techniques, and (always) adapted for each leader.   

 

Our integral (mind, body, heart, soul) model exposes every area blocking leaders from their highest performance and life happiness.    

Professional Development 

Woman at Work

Whether leaders are referred by their boss or self-directed, Moksha coaches provide side-by-side support in soliciting feedback and creating coaching goals for increasing leadership effectiveness.  As social scientists, we conduct narrative-based, qualitative research to diagnose leadership impact and team harmony.    

 

Leaders own their growth process and are encouraged to share what they are learning to evolve with their teams.  Both seasoned leaders and high-potential leaders benefit from deep non-judgemental support, role-playing difficult conversations, and innovative planning and strategizing with their coach. Success is celebrated!

Increasing Personal Capacity

Tai Chi Training

Change requires a tremendous amount of energy.  Resiliency practices feed each leader's capacity to follow through and create lasting change.

Coaches help clients learn and integrate wellbeing practices into everyday life at home and with their teams.  Coaching sessions often incorporate resiliency practices based on leader's preference. 

 

Practices can be recorded for weekly habit-building and to be shared with their teams or family members.

Work Life Flow

Father and Daughter

Burnout and exhaustion lead many leaders to fantasize about job loss. Marriages suffer, families lose connection, illness occurs, and children yearn for meaningful quality time with their parents.  Resentment builds and time lost is never recovered.  

 

Moksha coaches share strategies and neuroscience techniques to work more effectively with less time, including power hours and system improvement.  

 

The leadership plan includes strategies to increase the impact of time spent with loved ones and to masterfully shift from home to work with ease.

Next Gen Breeding

Shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic started, I was in a new role with several new team members hired during quarantine and was looking for a way to better connect with my team and help them connect to each other. After performing personalized interviews with myself and everyone in the team, Sheila and Ryan led us through several weekly virtual workshops where they tailored their training to our needs, helping us  develop improved empathy, active listening and communication. It was a true inflection point in the development of a new team that was physically remote, and I believe everyone’s EQ raised a few points from those workshops. We still reminisce on the accelerated team building those workshops provided and refer back to our “Moksha training” when facing new challenges.

  Moksha has healed relationships across our corporate departments and provided me with leadership coaching skills that I rely on daily at work and at home.  After the interviews and team intensives we worked extensively with Sheila Pride for team coaching. She eloquently addressed difficult relationships, including encouraging people to think and speak from the heart. Sheila created deeper connection, positivity and communication across departments. She has taught me techniques to minimize stress and communicate effectively. I am more emotionally in tune with my self and able to better navigate challenges. When I do find myself struggling in life, she is always there for me and able to quickly heal. Sheila has an incredible soul and is full of kindness, love, compassion and knowledge. I wish for everyone to experience the generosity and authenticity of Moksha.

Coaching sessions with Sheila have been transformative in how I approach my work. Sheila helped me to break down the aspects of change management that I needed to undertake, so that I could successfully address the needs of those I worked with.... Sheila’s insights into how colleagues interacted with my departments helped me to improve my communications with them and to build a level of trust that has proven to hold over time. Within my own team, she worked with me to understand the interpersonal dynamics that were going on and to break the relationship triangles that were feeding a toxic culture of mistrust and blame... 

 

She immediately built a level of confidence with team members that prompted them to be open with her. She worked with me individually to understand the team’s dynamics and to use that understanding to build a culture that was open and brought my team to trust in me... 

 

Through individual and group coaching sessions as well and many texts and emails, Sheila helped to “translate” between [my new manager and I] as she worked to help us to better communicate directly. This has allowed us to build a positive, trusting relationship. Sheila continues to help me “manage up” as I constantly work to keep executive level leadership informed of the successes and needs of the facility I lead.
