Leadership Circle Profile

The Vulnerable Leader

Francesca’s Story

I’ve spent the last twenty years working closely with entrepreneurs, managers, and leaders. I understand the thrill and challenge of starting a new venture, building and leading a team, and doing business in a global context. 

The most gratifying part of the coaching process is seeing the people I work with develop by learning more effective communication and leadership skills, creating a better work-life balance, or successfully making an important career or life transition.  

I see coaching as a catalyst for development through deep, focused reflection. My role is to challenge, support, motivate, question and strategize in a partnership that accelerates progress and increases success. It would be my honor to work with you.
