Leadership challenges provide incredible opportunities for learning and growth and can also lead to burnout and a sense of isolation. I founded nodramaturg coaching & consulting* to support new and experienced leaders in the generation of creative approaches that honor their personal and organizational values and goals. I especially enjoy working with women leaders in higher education, as I've personally experienced both the struggles and rewards of academic leadership roles.
My leadership coaching packages typically include 2 sessions per month plus email support throughout and require a 6-month minimum commitment. Together, we will discover ways of extinguishing the many fires that pop up with an eye towards your long-term development as a leader.
After 25 years in higher education administration, I was feeling a bit stuck in my work and frankly, powerless to do anything differently. A friend of mine recommended I seek executive coaching assistance. I wanted someone very specific—someone who understood the pressures of balancing a family and work, along with insight into the eccentricities of working and leading in a university environment. Elizabeth at nodramaturg was the perfect match. She had the blend of experience in a similar work environment and the training to help me uncover options and choices I never considered before working with her. She doesn't push or give advice—she simply provides perspectives I may not have considered and thought exercises that help me to formulate a different narrative than the one I have been telling myself for far too long. Elizabeth is a guide in the process of helping me discover what I can achieve and encouraging me to make choices that will propel me to be the best person—and leader—I can be!
