Corporate leaders want a resource who has lived in their world and “been there, done that”. I’ve led companies, managed P & Ls, been on both the buy and sell side of mergers and acquisitions, executed reductions in staff, and experienced the thrill of closing deals. After 30 years in senior roles in the corporate world, such as CFO, CLO, and General Manager, I can readily identify with the challenges and opportunities that leaders face.
“I abide by the formula that Performance = Potential – Interference. When working with my clients, we explore both possibility and opportunity in the quest for individual, team or organizational potential, while working on reducing or eliminating what gets in the way of great performance.”
The majority of my practice is one on one, focused, results-oriented executive coaching. It’s my passion. I work with C Suite, Senior Leaders and High Potential Leaders to help them achieve their goals.
The research is clear. More women in senior leadership roles translates to enhanced returns on investment. I am committed to advancing women to senior levels of the organizations in which they work.
I create and deliver leadership development workshops based on the needs of my clients. Business benefits include better teamwork, greater productivity, more effective communication, and increased individual effectiveness.
The popularity of group coaching continues to grow for both its affordability and the benefit of many perspectives of others. I coach groups of leaders on specific topics of their choosing.
I help leaders to solve business problems around a myriad of disciplines, most of which include leveraging their human capital. Specific consulting services that I offer follow.
Aunque vivo en los Estados Unidos, trabajo con clientes de coaching en todo el mundo. He viajado a América del Sur, Centroamérica, y España y entiendo que las culturas y el ambiente de negocios son diferentes en cada país y región.
The corporate world can be a place where energy gets systemically depleted. In fact, 85% of the world lives in “catabolic energy”, where stress, limiting beliefs, and negative thinking pervade the organizational culture. I know countless corporate leaders that are struggling with workplace demands, not realizing that solutions are around the corner and attainable. By working with me as your executive coach, I can help you shift your energy to work for you (otherwise known as “anabolic energy”) to help you see new opportunities, new possibilities, and to reach your potential.Learn More

Working with Evan over the past year has brought me out of a personal black hole. My life while full of purpose, was passing me by only to be replaced with doubt, fear and poor choices.

I honestly thought I was in a pretty good place as a business leader – successful on the surface, all the best ingredients for happiness. Through thoughtful conversations, the right questions and meaningful coaching, Evan has helped me understand the obstacles I’m putting in front of myself – obstacles which are preventing me from living an abundant life.

The results have been amazing — largest orders ever for the company, entirely new sources of revenue, increased resources allocated to our team, increased engagement by our customers.

Evan has been a great guide to me. At a time when I was at a crossroads professionally, I got connected to him through a common friend of ours and thereafter there was no looking back. Be it in dealing with under-performing subordinates or dealing with difficult customers, he taught me to look at situations from completely new perspectives. As a coach, he showed me the value of questioning techniques and the value of introspection.
