Are you an introvert struggling as a leader or manager?

Do you feel drained because you’re trying to imitate what you think a leader “should” be like?

It’s time to start leading like you, not a pale imitation of someone else.

I help introverts acknowledge, claim, and maximize their innate introvert strengths to become effective and authentic leaders.

Is This You?

If you’re an introvert, you may be struggling with how to lead. After all, our culture tells us that leaders are dynamic, charismatic, people-oriented, outgoing – in other words, stereotypical extroverts.

You may have found yourself trying to imitate these traits – only to find yourself seriously drained and feeling like a fraud.

It’s time to embrace your introvert strengths, and work from them, not against them, to become an effective leader.

The best way to move forward is to stop. Stop and take stock of yourself and your strengths. Forget the “shoulds” about leading. Decide how you want to go forward. And figure out the skills you need to make it happen.

By doing this, you’ll discover your unique, authentic approach to leadership.

I’ve been where you are, and I can help. I’m an introvert, and I’m a natural leader. I just don’t do it the “usual” way.

Let me help you identify your individual introvert skills, then develop and use them authentically to help your people work together seamlessly and deliver meaningful results.

What Clients Say

Alex has been my coach since I became an executive director and I don’t know what I’d do without her guidance and support. She never fails to ask exactly the right question in exactly the right moment – and then supports me as I realize the answer! It has been invaluable to have Alex as a cheerleader, guide, and sounding board. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Executive Director, Youth Advocate

Alex is an amazing coach. I began working with her to get clear on where I was in my career and what my next steps were. Alex was able to help me assess my strengths, research options, and decide what direction I wanted to go in. I appreciated Alex’s experience and wisdom, as well as her warmth and sense of humor. I feel focused and ready to take on whatever comes next. I give Alex my highest recommendation.

Mary M.

Program Officer, Regional Foundation

Alex is a tremendous coach. She was able to listen to what I was really saying about what I wanted in my career, going beyond my fear and doubt to help me find what my priorities really were. Then, as I went out and looked for what I wanted, she supported me, provided resources, and held me accountable. She’s warm, funny, and smart. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
