HOW TO SWIM AGAINST THE CURRENT®
This is the coaching process we’ll follow in both executive career and leadership coaching.
- Assessments are included to enhance self-awareness and recognition of your unique gifts.
In the journey to becoming the leader you're meant to be, assessments play a vital role in enhancing self-awareness and recognizing your unique gifts. These assessments provide valuable insights and objective data that can deepen your understanding of yourself, your strengths, and areas for growth.
Through assessments, you gain a clearer picture of your personality traits, communication style, leadership preferences, and other relevant aspects of your professional identity. These tools help you identify your natural talents, uncover hidden potentials, and shed light on areas where further development may be beneficial.
By enhancing self-awareness through assessments, you can better understand how you interact with others, make decisions, solve problems, and lead teams. This knowledge empowers you to leverage your strengths more effectively, adapt your leadership style to different situations, and build stronger relationships with your colleagues and team members.
Furthermore, assessments can reveal aspects of your leadership potential that you may not have fully recognized before. They provide a framework for exploring your unique gifts, values, and passions, helping you align your leadership approach with what truly matters to you.
Working with an experienced coach who utilizes assessments can greatly amplify the benefits of these tools. Your coach can interpret the assessment results, provide personalized guidance based on your unique profile, and support you in leveraging your strengths to drive meaningful change in your work and life.
Remember, assessments are powerful tools that facilitate self-discovery and personal growth. Embrace the opportunity to explore your unique gifts, expand your self-awareness, and harness your full potential as a leader. Through this process, you can create a profound impact in your professional endeavors and find fulfillment in aligning your authentic self with your leadership journey.

- In corporate settings, leadership coaching may also include a 360 to increase your understanding of how others perceive you.
In corporate settings, leadership coaching often encompasses a comprehensive approach to personal and professional development. As part of this approach, a 360-degree feedback assessment may be incorporated to enhance your understanding of how others perceive you as a leader.
A 360-degree feedback assessment is a valuable tool that gathers input from multiple perspectives, including colleagues, subordinates, superiors, and other stakeholders. This holistic assessment provides you with a well-rounded view of your leadership strengths, areas for improvement, and the impact of your actions on others.
By collecting feedback from various sources, the 360-degree assessment offers insights into your leadership style, communication effectiveness, decision-making processes, and other relevant aspects of your role. It enables you to gain a more accurate understanding of your leadership presence and the ways in which your actions and behaviors impact those around you.
The feedback received from a 360-degree assessment serves as a catalyst for growth and development. It highlights blind spots, uncovers hidden strengths, and sheds light on opportunities for growth and improvement. With this increased self-awareness, you can make targeted changes, refine your leadership approach, and enhance your overall effectiveness as a leader.
Working with a skilled coach, you can effectively navigate the insights provided by the 360-degree assessment. Your coach will help you interpret the feedback, identify patterns and themes, and create a development plan tailored to your unique needs. They will guide you in leveraging your strengths, addressing areas of improvement, and cultivating the skills and behaviors necessary for impactful leadership.
Remember, the inclusion of a 360-degree feedback assessment within the leadership coaching process is designed to provide you with a comprehensive view of your leadership impact. Embracing this valuable feedback, combined with the support and guidance of a coach, will empower you to make meaningful changes, foster positive relationships, and elevate your leadership effectiveness within the corporate setting.

After working together in a one-on-one coaching experience, you'll be able to:
Build and execute a roadmap to a work life and leadership style that allow you, and those around you, to thrive
Align your strengths, your motivations, and your values so you know what to prioritize and you’re making impact at every touch point
Feel creatively inspired and appropriately challenged by the work you’re doing
Identify opportunities for growth and reengage with your career in a meaningful way
Find a work-life integration that’s aligned with your values and allows you to bring your best self to both your personal and professional life
Here’s what it would be like to work together:
This experience truly changed my perspective on not just my career, but how my career fits into my life overall.
Amy gave me the permission and the safe space to explore my strengths and passions and define my own vision of success.
Inquisitive and insightful, Amy helped me uncover the ‘why’ of what excites and motivates me and helped me look for opportunities to grow in those areas. So much more than a career coach, Amy is a kind, patient and thoughtful mentor. If you’re feeling lost or unfulfilled in your career or held back in your current role - and aren’t sure what the right next step is - I’d strongly suggest connecting with Amy.
Working with Amy wasn’t the work I thought I was going to do; it was the work I didn’t realize I needed to do.
-Marisa, Senior Director of Marketing
