Executive and Leader Coaching

What got you to your current level of success may hold you back from your next.

Every leader who wants to stay at the top of the game, “should” always have a coach by the side. But most often that is not the case. Many leaders seek coaching support because they experience big challenges and they seem to hit one wall after the other. Often times, they feel isolated, overwhelmed, and they run out of ideas. Being an effective leader and executive is a journey that requires consistent growth, skill development, and comfort zone stretching.

Although I sometimes say I am in the leadership development business, what I actually do is help my clients uplevel their personal best. When you attend a leadership seminar, you receive lots of information. At the end, you know what to do but often times you don’t know how. You may have read dozens of books that challenged you intellectually but effective leadership depends more on social and emotional skills.  And this is where I come in.

When you spend time with me, you will gather insights, discover effective how’s, and get inspired to take subsequent actions. Insights are not external information pressed onto your consciousness. They are information coming from your inside that open up your consciousness to a new way of being and doing. And insights are crucial when you want to perform better because they are the catalyst for transformation. Suddenly, you see solutions for problems that you have been dragging around for weeks. Other problems can disappear. Plus, you will feel enthused to work on a specific project that you have been procrastinating for a while.

As a result, your entire world will shift – not only your workplace and the people around you but also your personal life. And that is what makes coaching so powerful and effective. My leadership coaching programs offer value beyond books. courses, TED talks, and university research.

If this intrigues you, click here to schedule a deeper conversation. Working with me will be intense but also fun and enlightening – deep, one-on-one coaching that uncovers your blind spots and gives you the tools you need to succeed even more. It will excel your growth and take years off your learning curve.

If you need more information before you are ready for a conversation, here you find a detailed overview of my program.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs;
ask yourself what makes you come alive.
And then go and do that.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Harold Whitman

I hired Iris to work with me through some particularly difficult times – I was overwhelmed with the demands of being a business owner and was in “survival mode,” not fulfilling my personal needs as well as just getting by on a professional service delivery basis. Iris was able to help me see how I was in control of my life, (both personally and professionally) and worked with me to develop strategies and approaches that worked for me. She is an amazing coach and provided me with the ability to develop and implement solutions that will work for a lifetime.

I highly recommend Iris to healthcare professionals in high-pressure careers – her coaching and counsel have definitely made the difference for me.
