Become the leader you want to be
The leader your your team needs
Because you want to fix the system but aren’t sure how.
Because you know we can do better.
Because you give a shit.
You feel like you’re part of the problem instead of the solution.
You have ideas but don’t want to risk your career by rocking the boat.
Or you don’t think you can make an impact from where you are right now…and is it even worth it?
You don’t have time to do your technical job AND manage your team effectively…you’re already overworking and on your way to burning out (if you haven’t already).
You don’t get feedback from your boss, you’re not really sure where you stand.
I get it. I’ve been there. I can help.
Gone are the days of leadership that cares only about the result. That treats people like they’re robots, or easily replaceable. That’s only about carrots and sticks.
Getting your people, and sometimes yourself, to do what you want them to do, isn’t always easy.
Effective leadership is challenging.
It’s also the answer to just about every problem, everywhere.
The good news is, you don’t have to figure it out alone.
You're an incredible coach. I was blown away by your ability to cut to the heart of an issue and provide thoughtful perspective
I am so grateful for this time - when I started, I felt like my job was a pressing issue that needed to be fixed, but with your help I was able to shift the way I think about my job and how I think about what my work should look like in the future. I no longer feel like my job is a source of stress for me - I'm able to appreciate it for what it is, and I don't feel an urgent need to change it. I feel that I can approach the "issue" of my job with so much more objectivity and overall that really brings my stress level down.
Creating the logistical system so it can be easy to keep updating on my own helped me feel more confident and put all the pieces together so my brain could understand. Loved your knowledge, your easy-going personality, felt I could totally trust you and know you'd help me figure it out. You’re a gem, thanks so much Kayla.
I also loved the time management tips we worked through and I am looking forward to implementing them more over time. Finally, I have really appreciated our thought-provoking conversations and it was really great to talk to my husband about them - an unexpected benefit of good conversations about what we both want for our careers and family. Coaching with you has really exceeded my expectations and I am so thrilled that I got to work with you. This has been fantastic and I gained what I hoped to from this experience, and also some things I didn't realize that I needed. Thank you, Kayla!
One of the best parts of working with Kayla is gaining the ability to separate facts of an event from feelings about an event, and to re-frame how those different components impact my emotions about it.
I really loved your insights, attitude, and energy, and you really helped me to make such a great change in my mindset, which has really improved my overall happiness! Thank you so much. I look forward to all that I can accomplish with the tools and attitude you gave me!
Your primary job is NOT your tactical job.
It’s not flying a plane, driving a ship, writing software code, trading stocks, or hammering nails.
Your primary job is the leadership and management of your team. Up and down the chain of command.
Your tactical job/technical expertise is your secondary job.
Yet most of us are so consumed by our jobs, that we don’t have time for all the things we know we should be doing to lead our team well and take care of our people.
We’re about to solve that problem.
