Enhance Your Impact & Influence

THE HIGHER YOU GO THE MORE YOUR PEOPLE SKILLS MATTER

The impact you have on others at work is critical to your success, especially as a leader.

Communication is the foundation to relationships, and 99% of it occurs in the everyday, moment-by-moment interactions. When your impact aligns with your intent, you strengthen your leadership.

LET'S
  • Create strong trusting relationships that grow your influence

  • Advance your ability to navigate difficult and/or high-stakes conversations

  • Build authentic executive presence and communicate with impact

  • Curate a leadership brand that conveys your identity and value

  • Become responsive instead of reactive

“What I valued the most is Dina’s uncanny ability to help you find the answers within yourself and being available as a balanced sounding board on all things surrounding leadership.

 

Partnering with Dina was an empowering experience. In six short months, I was able to achieve my goals successfully and have a tangible impact that has been visibly noted by my team, peers and senior leaders.”​

How it works:

You have a limited window of time to step back and reflect, focus on the important versus the urgent, and gain a fresh perspective on a situation or challenge. That’s why my approach is both evidence-based and pragmatic.

In every engagement, I serve as an executive-level confidant and strategic thought partner to my clients, offering an honest and objective third-party perspective seasoned by my own experience and expertise.

Each engagement is customized for the person and situation, but here’s how it looks at a higher level.
In most engagements we’ll look at six things essential to your success:

The Essential Six Elements

VISION.png
VISION:

Coaching has to build on what matters to you: what you want to achieve, create, and become. If you’re an executive working within a corporation, it’s also critical to understand how key stakeholders experience you. With this dual awareness, we’ll identify goals that are both meaningful and high impact.

Executive-Coaching-Business-Coaching-Ser
MINDSET:

Our mindsets filter the data we perceive, shape our thinking and actions, and unconsciously limit our worldview and choices. Exposing and questioning your assumptions and experimenting with new perspectives and approaches can help you propel your progress forward.

Executive-Coaching-Online-or-In-Person.p
STRATEGY:

We’ll lay out a strategic roadmap and pinpoint the most important things you need to shift to achieve your goals and move towards your vision. Strengths are the easiest path to high performance, and I’ll help you recognize and leverage your full set of strengths. We’ll also identify and address any internal obstacles that are thwarting your efforts to raise your game.

Executive-Coaching-Team-Assessment-Onlin
ACTION:

Creating different and better results not only requires fresh ways of thinking but new approaches and behaviors as well. We’ll determine what you may need to learn or unlearn and determine specific practices and actions that will help you move toward your vision of success.

Executive-Coaching-Leadership-Coaching-O
ECOSYSTEM:

Systemic forces can either promote or impede you and have an enormous impact on any leader’s success. We’ll examine the ecosystem you function in and consider adjustments to the way that you interact within a complex web of relationships. Shifting certain patterns can be key to unlocking your greater success.

Executive-Life-Coach-Online-or-InPerson.
SELF:

Recognizing and organizing around your values, what gives you energy and what takes it away is fundamental to your performance, happiness, and sustainable effectiveness. My concern is for you as a whole person, and we’ll clarify these as needed. I’ll invite you to talk about whatever weighs you down so you can free up your mind and energy and refocus.

Become the leader others love to follow.

"Dina is an excellent executive coach. Her commitment to her clients and her warm, engaging style are supported by a deep knowledge of neuroscience as applied to leadership. I've had the opportunity to refer many people to her for coaching, to watch her coaching in action and even to be coached by her myself. Her intelligence, her access to powerful questions and her personal commitment to growth make her a truly exceptional strategic partner and coach. The people I've referred to her have consistently given her rave reviews too. If you get a chance to work with Dina - take it!​"
