Strategic Consulting, Executive & Team Coaching
Performance and resilience are greatly impacted by repeated exposure to stressful situations. Even the best performing, and most resilient professionals have been affected by events of the last few years and continue to be challenged with adapting to the fragmented workplace and engaging customers face to face. This relentless disruption has created a new set of challenges for leaders to motivate, inspire, and bring out greatness in others – and in themselves.
Creating trauma-aware leaders is not about becoming mental health professionals. It is an organizational paradigm shift that recognizes and acknowledges the role leadership plays in workplace health during these turbulent times – including leaders, employees and clients (Forbes, 2021).
Organizations are leaning on DEI leaders more than ever to make effective changes. Yet, many continue to fall short as they continue to search for metrics that are meaningful (HRDIVE, 2021).
Most urgent is the need to equip leaders with a new set of skills to navigate the constant stress and anxiety from the uncertainty of our environment. Leaders are in need of new skills to address the mental, emotional, physical, and social challenges that we have endured and will continue to endure into the near future.
Amplified Leadership™ is founded in Energy Leadership™, a unique framework of leadership and also, literally, to the process of leading energy so that it works for you, rather than against you. Traditional leadership programs that focus on behavioral competencies to develop highly effective leaders are still a foundational part of employee development. Yet, our current time requires a drastically enhanced approach. One that looks beyond competencies to consider inner experiences from a trauma-aware lens. That’s exactly what Amplified Leadership™ does.
We utilize a holistic approach to equip leaders to manage their own energy and the energy of others, especially during times of repeated stress and high anxiety. Such an approach enables organizations, and their leaders to access a higher level of awareness to effectively respond to the mental, emotional, physical, and social influencers of today.
Our coaching methodology positively influences and supports constructive change in individual perspectives, emotional reactions, and behavior patterns of leaders, workers, and whole organizations. When leaders learn to harness their core energy productively and train their employees to do the same, people and companies change for the better. Workplace relationships improve, communication increases, teamwork intensifies, productivity rises, and profits grow (Waldorf, 2018).
In our approach, there are two types of energy: anabolic and catabolic. Anabolic energy is constructive, expanding, fueling, and creative, and works for a person. Conversely, catabolic energy is destructive, draining, or resisting and works against a person. The key to achieving physical and emotional well-being and high performance lies in learning to decrease destructive, constricting catabolic energy while releasing the natural flow of expansive, healing anabolic energy. By generating more anabolic energy, you gain greater access to creativity, intuition, cooperation, synergy, acceptance, and deep understanding that is sustained over time.
Through our process, leaders find they can make quick decisions with clarity and confidence in uncertain times. They have an increased self-awareness and confidence in leading teams. By putting aside one’s agenda and listening from this new level of awareness, leaders become fully present and employees are heard at a meaningful level. The impact on the bottom line is that organizations experience increased engagement, innovation, equity and inclusion.

How We Work With Clients
We work with two categories of clients: private and corporate. Private clients are individuals who come to us for one-on-one executive coaching services directly. They pay fees for services that best suit their individual personal development goals.
Coaching programs and leadership workshops for corporate clients are tailored to their employee or business unit needs. The fees for corporate clients are paid by the corporation (sponsor). The confidentiality of the client coaching relationship is paramount to a successful coaching agreement. Broader organizational goals for the coaching program are agreed upon in advance with the sponsor.
Fee arrangements vary based on the type of client. You can learn about service rates and options for private and corporate clients by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
