Every challenge that leaders face on the outside is mirrored inside the leader. Research shows that to be an effective leader, you need to be aware of what is happening inside yourself.
Understanding how the following affects you and your team is necessary to effectively drive change:
Your images of the way the world works
The values that drive you
Your beliefs, including those that limit you
The expectations, of yourself and others, you hold
Through coaching, we will reveal your resources in these areas. We will also discover those that no longer serve you, and take you through a process to transform them.
I will work with you to increase awareness of what is going on for you and others in the moment. Awareness of what happens within and among is the first step to finding solutions.
Chris, Staff Engineer
Josh helped me see things differently. I work more collaboratively now. I have learned how to pay attention to other's thoughts and feelings and see that my way is not always the best way.
Charlie, Founder & CTO
Working with Josh, I gained skills to help me through new and unique managerial challenges - first as a new manager, then as Founder & CTO of my own VC-funded company.
Ilyas, Founder & CTO
Josh's guidance has had a profound impact on my professional and personal life, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have worked with him.
I wrote my first code as a curious kid on an Apple II Plus in the early 80s. In 1994, I started my career as an engineer. Curiosity about how people work steered me into engineering management over 15 years ago. For the past ten years, I have also focused on mentoring and coaching individuals and teams. I have a bachelors in Physics, a Master's in Organizational Leadership, and over 20 years of study in humanistic psychology, based primarily on the work of Virginia Satir, a pioneer in human systems thinking. I have attended and facilitated over 400 days of personal growth, career development, and leadership training around the world. In my career, I have held multiple leadership roles in technology startups. I am an Agile Leadership Journey Guide and have trained extensively with Crafted Leadership. I am excited to share the tools of discovery that I have used to help others, and myself.
It's better to talk to someone who gets the engineering mindset.
