Executive Coach

You are a powerful leader in the world. As an accomplished, savvy, and confident executive or entrepreneur, you’re not interested in settling for the status quo. (And rightfully so!)

This strong-willed, successful attitude is what makes you sought after in your career and life, but it also leaves you without the time or structure to fully define and implement the balance you’ve been seeking.

Maybe you’re spending all your time pleasing the higher-ups, cleaning up other people’s messes…

Or you feel distracted and muddy about the right next steps for you…

You’re looking for that wing woman to be your honest confidant when you exit the boardroom and tackle the important aspects of your career and life.

It’s likely that someone has suggested a coach or mentor, but you want to make sure you are going to get real results.

Yes, you want the spirituality and mind/body connection but you also want the brass tax and actionable growth you can really feel.

That’s exactly what I do.

Igniting Your Purpose

As a coach for over 25 years, I’ve been around since before a coach was called a “coach.” What I was doing (and still do) is ignite fires in powerhouse people.

With particular expertise in coaching C-level professionals, building entrepreneurial companies, career building, and transitions, I give you the permission and then I give you the plan. Every step, all the structure, and consistent accountability.

I’ve been called a “hard ass” and it may be the sweetest thing anyone’s ever said to me.

After returning to Sweden in 2015, I have retained my US and international clients, as well as leading executive coaching programs New York institutions: The Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership, The Learning Annex, and SoHo House.

Prior to this, I was Senior Vice President at a New York-based coaching firm and teaching at MIT, Stanford Business School, AOL, Sony, and Conde Nast. My clients range from high-level executives at Blackstone Investment Group to the Hollywood movie industry.

DESPITE MY EARLY SKEPTICISM… “Despite my early skepticism, working with my coach has yielded incredible results for me. I thought I was doing well and just needed to tweak a few things, but my lifestyle, health, relationships, finances, and overall happiness have all taken a significant leap to levels I did not believe I could achieve. There is no magic pill to make all challenges in life disappear but I would recommend my coach wholeheartedly to anyone seeking advice and guidance on how to go about winning in any area of their life. Her coaching methodology is on the cutting edge of human development. She gets results and she walks the talk.” Ziad Sawalha

CHANGING YOUR MIND “I’ve always battled with my career. I felt like I had no purpose and I never liked what I was doing. My jobs always ended in me either being let go from downsizing or I would get fired. My coach taught me that it’s not “what I do” for a living that matters it’s how I am about what I am doing that does. My coach is teaching me how to break my old habits and how important it is to challenge my doubts and fears. I realize that I truly create my world by what I think. I now have practices in place that stop me from going down a path of negativity and self-doubt. As I keep up the practices, they get better and better and so does my life.” Beth Armstrong

MY COACH PRACTICES WHAT SHE PREACHES “My coach is spectacular. She practices what she preaches and believes wholeheartedly in what she teaches. She has follow-through and really believes in her clients and what they are creating. It has been a brilliant partnership working with her on not only my career, but my life!” Lora Krulak
