GROW Coaching & Consulting

At GROW Coaching and Consulting, we believe everyone is a leader. We help leaders develop by listening to their vision and drawing out their natural strengths and unique qualities to optimize their distinctive leadership style.

Our Purpose is to Help Your Leaders Lead With Clarity and Confidence

Give Your Leaders Support to Be the Best Leaders They Can Be

Whether it’s making decisions at the top of a global organization or leading a project team or deciding what to make for dinner, we believe, our actions have an impact on others – that makes us all leaders. We work with leaders who want to be intentional about their impact on the organization and its people.

There is Not One Single Formula for Effective Leadership

Being an Inspiring, Influential Leader Who Engenders Trust is Possible

There’s not one single formula for effective leadership – it comes from cultivating one’s natural talents, beliefs and experiences and directing them toward their goals. It’s using our unique behavioral style, combined with skillful knowledge, to be our best and bring out the best in others.
Being an inspiring, influential leader who engenders trust is possible. It goes beyond simply knowing what to say in a given situation. It requires self awareness and deliberate practice to consistently show up as the leaders we want to be. We have the expertise to draw out those inner qualities and refine them to make them most effective.

Technical vs. Management Career Track Decision

Making the decision about whether to continue as a technical professional vs move to a career in management is a major career decision. Having invested heavily in becoming an expert in one’s profession (usually with a doctorate of some kind), the thought of leaving “the bench” is difficult. Everyone around this person has a vested interest in the decision so it can be difficult to sort out the decision.

Meaningful Self Promotion for the Humble

Some leaders tend toward being humble. They actually don't enjoy public recognition. They are satisfied knowing, in their hearts, that they did a good job. That’s fine…and it’s simply not good enough. The thing is, everyone is too busy doing their own thing to notice...

Networking as a Tool for Innovation

My dad was a carpenter in my home town. On my days off from school I’d tag along with him to his job sites. Every once in awhile he’d “go to coffee.” “Coffee” at the City Cafe was a weekday ritual for many business people in my small community. My dad, however, was an...

Networking Your Way in to an Organization

In my opinion, and others would agree, trying to get a job solely by filling out applications is a waste of time. If you want to make a pivot in your career or move to a new company, at the very least, don’t spend all of your time looking at ads and filling out...

Use Compliments as Positive Self Promotion

Clients often tell me they are terrible at self-promotion. But there’s another way of thinking about self-promotion that’s not the slimy, sucking up kind. Instead, I suggest developing a habit of giving genuine compliments as a way of building relationships. I have a...
