I decided to meet with an executive coach to improve my confidence and effectiveness in a leadership position. I wanted to communicate more effectively with management team, coworkers and direct reports.
I learned to approach a situation with an “open door” attitude to encourage effective dialogue with reports, my boss and coworkers. As a person who prefers introversion, I learned ways to bring my thoughts and concerns to the table and keep dialogue open, without alienating others or feeling alienated by them.
I felt comfortable working with Karen. She encourages and allows me to define my goals and what is important to focus on in the training rather than imposing her own ideas.
