Does it feel like all the rules are changing?
Is what brought you success in the past no longer working?
What does it take to grow, become a better leader, and have a rewarding, successful career?
If these are some of the concerns you have, I’d love to help you explore solutions.
You may be facing a situation like one of these:
It’s such a classic problem you’re embarrassed to say it. You’ve got too much to do and not enough time to get it all done. Your to-do list is longer by the end of the day instead of shorter, and you don’t have time to prioritize or even think about delegating. How can you regain a sense of control and start being responsive and proactive again?
You used to be a fast learner – what happened? Things change so quickly now – the global business environment doesn’t stand still for a second, and the economic stress of the last few years has only added to the turmoil. You’ve tried to figure things out, working logically through the challenges you face, but you always feel like you’re one step behind. How can you learn faster, deal with the problems that spring up daily, and stay calm in the midst of it all?
Your boss told you there are things you need to work on. You’re frustrated, frightened, and maybe even a little angry. You know these feelings are blocking your ability to take action, but then again, you’re not even sure what action to take! What can you do to capitalize on your strengths, shore up your weaknesses – and convince your boss that you can get the job done?
People say they’re unhappy with your leadership style. You’ve been working hard to improve, but recent feedback tells you people’s perceptions haven’t changed much. What is it you’re not understanding – and what do you need to be doing differently?
If you feel like you’ve gone from hero to zero in just a few short, surprising steps – you’ve come to the right place to get help.
My clients are people who have experienced success. They’re leaders, managers, and executives who take pride and enjoyment in being good at what they do.
They’re forward-thinking and willing to be responsible, active participants in their own growth.
And no matter how tough the going gets, deep down they know that something better is possible.

How Seishindo Executive Coaching works
You’re well-educated and experienced in logic, analytical reasoning, and problem-solving.
Your experience as a leader has prepared you to be effective from the perspective of the past.
Unfortunately, this leaves you off-balance and unprepared to step confidently into the future.
You need to learn from the past instead of being constrained by it, so you’re free to face the unknown territory that lies ahead. And you need to cultivate your intuitive understanding of the ways people and situations are often paradoxical and non-rational.
To do this, you need to focus on four things
It’s counter-intuitive, but when you’re in the midst of overwhelm, slowing down makes it possible to accomplish more.
As you learn how to slow down, you discover a natural calm and confidence. Those who are calm in the eye of the storm are the charismatic leaders people want to work with.
Breathe and experience your whole self
Paying attention to your breathing and posture creates an entirely new awareness of your presence – the energetic message you communicate to others and to yourself. Your non-verbal behavior plays a subtle yet powerful role in how you’re perceived – and how you feel.
Life is filled with paradox – but at first glance paradox seems irrational. When you go deeper inside yourself, you can stop resisting what is. As you embrace paradox and accept not knowing, you discover clarity of perception and an intuitive understanding of the missing pieces of the puzzle.
Feel and appreciate the emotional experience of others
Emotion drives behavior, and invariably overrides rational thinking. Working well with others requires knowing how they feel, more so than knowing what they think. You need to understand the emotional landscape of your counterparts, so you can interact with them in a way that matches their values, beliefs, hopes, and fears.
You’ve probably tried some of this in the past.
But you need to perform all four actions together before meaningful change begins to happen.
When you slow down, breathe into the power of your whole self, and embrace the paradoxes life presents – you’ll operate from a place of deep, intuitive power. You’ll know how to bring your natural strengths to bear, and how to respond in a heartfelt, effective manner.
You’ll discover a deep appreciation for who you are, instead of trying to become someone different.
