"........When Change is the Challenge."


Laurie Weiss, Ph.D., provides coaching for executives who need or want to take on increased responsibilities, increase productivity and thrive.

Executive coaching and job development consulting services help you increase your job effectiveness. Coaching may address any or all of the following situations, and any others that are unique to your position:

Just-in-time learning, when:

  • You are stretched to your limits;
  • You know what you should do, in theory, but don't implement it;
  • You automatically accept other people's problems;
  • You are buried in e-mail messages;
  • You are frustrated because key people say one thing and do something else;
  • You are distracted by the demands of corporate politics;
  • Everyone wants a chunk of your time;
  • Doing detail work yourself seems easier than delegating it;
  • Your life is unbalanced and you can't see any light at the end of the tunnel.

Achieve increased effectiveness, when you need to:

  • Understand, predict and change communication patterns;
  • Establish positive relationships with chronically difficult personalities;
  • Address problem behavior in a constructive manner;
  • Respond rather than react in stressful situations;
  • Learn to use your emotions as a guide to effective action;
  • Discover what your associates need from you;
  • Recognize your own truth and communicate it gracefully to others.

Create the habits that insure your success, by:

  • Clarifying what you need most to function effectively in any situation;
  • Challenging you to make choices that express your most important values;
  • Recommending specific habits of adequate nutrition, sleep, and exercise to support your physical health;
  • Helping you stay focused on what you can control, and live with what you cannot;
  • Encouraging you to make space in your life for nurturing the relationships that bring you joy and fulfillment.

When you are faced with the need for accelerated growth in order to integrate increased responsibilities into your already demanding workload, mentoring by your independent executive coach may be the most effective way to help you meet the new challenges and thrive. As your coach, my job is to help you transform the natural stress of your situation into energy to reintegrate at a higher level of functioning than ever before.

Coaching is a personal, confidential, and individualized relationship, focusing on achieving your success. It is particularly useful for challenging you to move beyond your previous limitations into greatly expanded effectiveness.

The first step is to work together to clarify your goals and needs. Then I analyze your personal strategies for achieving success. We identify specific activities that will facilitate you in reaching your goals, and create a schedule for implementing these activities. I monitor your progress, give you the feedback you need and get you back on track when necessary. I hold you accountable for reaching your goals.

As we work together, I identify the blind spots that interfere with your effectiveness and design procedures to develop the new skill sets you need to transcend these limitations. These may include developing specific strategies for decreasing stress, resolving conflict successfully or coaching your direct reports to increase their productivity. My goal is to use any of the thousands of strategies I have learned in 25 years of practice to help you be successful. I strive to be unconditionally constructive. I am on your side, not on your case.

Coaching services are offered either by phone or at your location. Contact can then range from a 30 minute weekly phone call to an intensive, week-long consultation, in which I accompany you throughout your work week and giving you on-the-spot private feedback about everything I observe that will help you improve your productivity and achieve your goals.
