What can coaching do for you?
As managers and leaders face the ongoing challenges of the 24/7 workplace including the increased pace of change, management of virtual teams, constant shifts in technology, globalization, and escalating expectations for bottom-line results, they have little time to focus on professional development.
That’s where individual and team coaching can fill the gap. Coaching gives executives the structure and objectivity to step outside the scope of their day-to-day activities to improve leadership skills, increase executive presence, build trust, and enhance communication and collaboration.
Libby spent nearly 20 years in corporate leadership roles and now has a 16-year track record of coaching professionals to overcome challenges, exceed expectations, and grow their organizations for the future. She provides a broad range of tools that customized to meet client needs and preferred learning styles.
Libby works with multiple industries and disciplines, but specializes in coaching established and emerging leaders in these core areas:
- New leaders
- Senior management
- Women executives
- Media, communication, and marketing executives
- International and multinational executives
- Executives experiencing challenges
The individual coaching process includes an initial strategy session, a customized 360 Assessment, a Personal Development Program, and ongoing coaching sessions to hold the client accountable to behavioral changes to achieve co-designed outcomes.
Libby's proprietary 360 Assessment, developed over more than a decade working across multiple industries, consists of in-depth conversations, probing questions, relevant anecdotal evidence, and a bias-neutral ranking system. Because Libby is able to build trust and rapport quickly with professionals at all levels, she is a strong advocate for the client and able to elicit intensely useful feedback.
Benefits of executive coaching may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Improved leadership style
- Greater self-confidence
- Enhanced skills - communication, presentation skills, time management
- More polished personal brand and executive presence
- Stronger operational and management skills

Team coaching helps people learn to work together more effectively. By focusing on interpersonal relationships and collaboration rather than on individual development, the team learns to function as a unit. After that, they are better equipped to resolve conflicts, carry out initiatives, and achieve strategic results. Benefits of team building and team coaching may include:
- Greater openness and transparency
- Increased trust and respect
- Improved fluidity and cross-function collaboration
- Enhanced communication flow
- More camaraderie, fun, and engagement
