"I came to coaching with a few goals in mind, specifically to increase my capacity given my and my team’s increasing workload, to build my self-confidence in my ability to have crucial conversations, and addressing my tendency to ‘run too lean,’ all impacting my and my team’s ability to achieve our goals.

These challenges impact my ability to be an effective leader. Specifically, I was not giving my team the support they needed; I was not available due to being spread too thin. I was working late at night to increase the amount of work time. Although this is one way to increase capacity, it's not effective, not sustainable, and also does not send the right message to the team about work-life balance. 

The tipping point was when my work life negatively impacted my personal life through additional stress that was put upon my family and through the additional time away, as I was often working long hours.

Since working with Camille, I am clearer on my role as a leader; I am effectively serving my team by empowering them to stretch themselves in their work. I am able to have more effective conversations with my team and colleagues using Camille's communication model. I’m also happier in my work life because I more effectively prioritize my and my team's workload and responsibilities.

I am able to use Camille's coaching and continue to refine my learning over time, as Camille's coaching does not apply to one or two situations; Camille's coaching is adaptive and will be effective for years to come. 

Thank you Camille. You are a wonderful coach and mentor."
