Corporate Training

Team members are stressed-out, burned-out… and closer than you think to wanting to get out.

⇒ Meeting participation is suffering.
⇒ You might wait days for a reply to a simple email.
⇒ There’s more complaining, squabbling, and lower morale.
⇒ You’re hearing complaints from clients (that would never have reached you before).
⇒ Team members are less willing to take ownership for what’s not working (and for what could work better).

Remote work has its own set of challenges. There’s more potential for misunderstandings and it’s harder to assess how everyone’s really feeling.

Your leaders are trying to help their teams so they don’t burn out – but that puts more pressure/responsibility on your leaders, who are also struggling.

If you ignore the unprecedented pressure your team is working under, you’ll deal with it in the form of resentment, burnout, “quiet quitting,” and resignations.

The cost of recruiting and training new team members is estimated to be 3-4x the position’s salary, according to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

Truth be told, when long-time team members (with their knowledge of the inner workings of the organization, in addition to industry expertise) move on, the loss may be incalculable.

Sheila’s workshops directly address the root causes of today’s biggest stressors… so employees feel refreshed and reinvigorated to do their best work.

When team members feel better, they’ll be able to:

1) deliver the top-notch work they’re capable of,
2) confidently navigate challenges with colleagues and clients, and
3) naturally rise up as leaders (as emotionally intelligent as they are technically competent).

When your employees are set up for success, your company will be, too.

Private Coaching

I work with leaders who are smart enough to know (and brave enough to admit) they could be more successful with some help…

Early in your career you had managers to give you feedback.
You could go to happy hour, whine about work, and get colleagues’ perspectives.

Once you’re at the top, there’s no one giving you that feedback anymore – and it’s not appropriate to hash out work stress with your team members.

Similarly, while you know no one’s life is perfect, others want to maintain the appearance of shiny lives. While friends used to love to dig into dating, you don’t find the same realness in conversations about marriage and parenting.

No matter how successful you are, you’ll never outgrow your need for:

  1. out loud processing,
  2. outside perspective (to help you see the bigger picture), and
  3. constructive feedback (from someone who knows you, has no agenda for you, and wants the best for you).

You don’t have to figure it all out on your own.

I create trust-filled, ongoing relationships with clients so I can help them with whatever work/life throws their way.

It's possible to keep showing up, year after year, making your big difference in the world – and actually enjoy it.

Don’t take my word for it.

How much better would your day be if…

  • It didn’t feel like one “fire” after another?
  • You didn’t spend so much of your time trying to figure out what to say to so situations don’t escalate (so you can keep the peace and keep working together)?
  • You could get back to creating/delivering work that meets your high standards (without working until midnight).

No matter your role, work doesn’t have to be so hard.

“My favorite part about working with Sheila is her openness and honesty, and her spot-on perception of what is going on in my head. Sheila helped me push through some of my thinking and get unstuck from certain mindsets. As a working mom with constant responsibilities and an attorney with billable hours, I need to be very careful with my time. I can honestly say that meeting with Sheila was always something I not only looked forward to, but I felt was a great use of my time. I highly recommend Sheila!”
