You have been working for a company for a while working in the same role. You can’t seem to break through to the next level in your career. You feel you have the experience and expertise to be a leader. Yet you don’t know why your not getting into leadership or moving up as a leader. Especially considering that you are above average in your performance. What is holding you back? What does it take to break through to the next level? What does it mean to be an emerging leader?

I was a top performer and yet I always felt like something was missing. I did what was expected of me, never asking what I expected of myself. Yes, by all accounts I was successful. I simply was passed up for leadership roles. Now I see I was not agile in developing my character strengths to be seen as a leader.

If you are like me, you are good, even great, at what you do. You are ready to get out of your own way to step into a higher level of career satisfaction. You are willing to look at your personal development to move from expert to master as a leader.

Are you ready to invest in your own development? Consider what your life might be if:

  • You showed up as your best self and was seen as a leader

  • You are comfortable serving those whom you lead

  • You are confident to step into new tasks, roles, assignments, or even new positions

Do you find yourself in one or more of these situations?

  • You and your boss or team never seem like you’re on the same page

  • You feel invisible at work, never getting the opportunities you desire

  • You react, sometimes emotionally, because of the stressful environment

Let’s discuss how elevating your character will improve your professional presence and propel you to achieve your aspirations.


One fails forward toward success.
