Welcome First Time Managers and Executives --
Do any of these statements describe you?
You are a new executive or manager and the to-do list just got longer.
You are struggling to delegate work and hold your subordinates accountable.
You dread having difficult performance conversations with your subordinates, so you tend to just avoid the conversations.
You are under a new boss and need to understand his/her management style.
Your organization is struggling with budget cuts, layoffs, or significant changes but the business must go on.
You are going through a reorganization or downsizing scenario and not sure what or how to tell your staff.
You want to maintain established positive relationships with former peers, but now you are their boss.
You are in the midst of another re-organizational shuffle and now having to make some difficult decisions.
You are uncertain as to how to best navigate conversations with your staff and come across as empathic and caring.
If so, you are in the right place!
You are in a leadership position and in the midst of an organizational change. While the change may be for the best, you are affected psychologically and emotionally. You know you are responsible for helping your staff understand what’s going on in your organization, remain productive and challenged, navigate changing political dynamics, and accomplish important work, but this is hard!
Conversations can be difficult!
You want to:
- Communicate with your staff and subordinates with clarity, confidence, and compassion
- Deal effectively with challenging situations and differing personalities
- Have meaningful, honest, and courageous conversations with subordinates and stakeholders that lead to positive results
- Delegate work with ease and self-assurance
- Navigate the political dynamics and organizational changes with composure and belief in yourself
- Deal positively with changes in your life and in your organization!

They are able to navigate the various stages of change
with greater ease and self-assurance.
When Edwin was going through significant leadership changes in his organization, he recognized the need to communicate clearly and confidently to his staff about the potential strategic changes that were going on and to assure his staff that he supported the work that they do.
After a few months of coaching:
- Edwin was able to articulate his vision to his staff.
- Reassure them about their importance to the organization.
- Re-direct various projects to ensure full utilization of his staff’s talents and interests.
Even though Edwin was a new supervisor, he demonstrated his ability to lead others and was asked to assume a higher-level position in his organization. Within two years, he was promoted twice to the Director level in a highly competitive organization!
Confidence is the word Edwin uses now
to describe himself in his leadership position!
