Be at your best. Lead at your best. Live at your best.

The best time to transform is now.

Life and career are a constant reinvention and recalibration.
That is the fun part.
When we stand still, problems and frustration can expand.
With frustration, everything becomes more tedious.
What used to be fun is now a dread.
Life is too short for that. Change before you have to.

I coach people who are ready to grow. Grow in their career. Grow in their personal life … whatever is most important and meaningful to them.

For the past 18 years, I have supported individuals to reach the next level(s) of their success. My clientele includes executives, small business owners, department leaders, physicians, and people in transition.
I have been studying, merging, simplifying, and customizing a variety of leadership and life methodologies and tools that serve my clients best. My continuing education, critical thinking, and creativity are the keys to my clients’ success. Neither my approach nor my marketing is hype-driven or steroid-laden. Instead, they have been described as authentic, real, and responsive. 

My clients’ goals are simple, yet significant:

This has been an invaluable experience for me. When I met Iris, I was overwhelmed with the demands of being in this leadership role and I was in serious “survival mode”. Even my personal life suffered from my absence and inability to catch up. In this program, I learned a lot of new tools and approaches for my team and me to be more effective, solve problems quicker, and work towards common goals. Issues that I had been dragging around with me for months, suddenly got resolved. Each month I experienced how my load got lighter, and my enthusiasm for this role got stronger. Iris is an amazing coach and provided me with the ability to develop and implement solutions that will work for a lifetime.
