What would it be like to bring your visions of change into reality?

Women Connected Coaching provides you with the tools to cultivate your inner resources so that you are fully expressing your potential through one-on-one support.

Why Work With Me?

With deep expertise in coaching, leadership development, and understanding of complex corporate and organizational contexts, I’ve helped a diverse group of leaders and executives release deeply embedded limiting patterns and build a masterful and engaging leadership skillset.  As a coach, I’m perceptive and have the ability to ask the right questions at the right time (and refrain from excess exploration).

As a leader myself, I’ve had direct experience in the areas of building a team and achieving business results. In Leadership and Organizational Development roles, I created assessment tools, built competency models, designed global team effectiveness models, and delivered leadership programs, formal assessments, and coaching programs to thousands of leaders. 

Following a Wall Street career, I now consult and coach in Fortune 500 companies in Healthcare, Financial Services, Retail, Consulting, and Pharmaceuticals.  I’m an ICF Professional Coach with more than 5,000 coaching hours.

I help you to clearly see the intersection of who you are and the potential you have to offer. And I work right along with you to make that big picture a reality.

How to Work With Me

Working one-on-one with me is a way to clarify all the parts of your leadership effectiveness, get lots of new ideas and flatten your learning curve of all the elements needed to become an effective leader and executive.

Below are three of the ways I work with leaders, teams, and groups.

Executive Coaching

Transformational Conversations. Measureable Change.

  • If we work together in this private container, you’re essentially getting me as your partner and mentor. We’ll talk through everything, and I’ll guide you in every area of your career and life that you want to support. 
  • Six or 12-month options.
  • Two 1-on-1 Coaching Calls per month: this is where the magic happens. We’ll talk through whatever you need on our private calls, whether it’s your strategy, skills, mindset,  team, relationships, or money. I’ll give you customized feedback and pull from my experience as a 30-year professional in organizational and leadership development, not to mention my expertise coaching countless leaders, executives, and leadership teams.
  • You can expect me to listen deeply and that you will experience the relief of feeling seen and heard.
  • My approach is non-normative; in other words, this is coaching to help you identify what is particularly you and supports you to live by your inner guidance.
  • Includes Leadership 360′ assessment and debrief.
  • You can always email or message me for quick check-ins questions in between our calls.
  • All the resources, assessments, and worksheets created for your program are available in the coaching portal and yours to keep.

  • Six or 12-month options.
  • Two monthly 1-on-1 Coaching Calls with you as the leader as we work through your strategy, skills, mindset,  team, relationships, or business outcomes. You can count on me to share my observations with integrity. I will help you design actions to reach your goals and outcomes.
  • I am an accountability partner and will challenge you to work outside your comfort zone until outside your comfort zone becomes your new norm.
  • We will design and deliver one to three team events focused on the business objectives and addressing team behaviors and dynamics.

You’ve heard of the glass ceiling – the pervasive resistance to the efforts of women and minorities to reach the top ranks of management in major corporations.   

What if I told you that women also have an inner glass ceiling?

An “unconscious template” that has been defined for us, by others, for generations. It has been passed down to us through our parents, teachers, and other authority figures. 

This unconscious template is encoded with what society thinks is possible, impossible, and taboo for women. It tells us what feminine qualities are perceived as valuable and which should be discarded.

In this coaching program, Terri guides you to explore your inner glass ceiling, gain greater awareness about how invisible constraints impact you and uncover your brilliance and inner authority waiting to be released.

Releasing the Inner Glass Ceiling program brings together the most potent tools of modern psychology, neuroscience, and mindfulness to actuate a foundational rewiring so we can recognize and release the outdated standards for women and step into a new future. A digital workbook is included.

There are different types of creativity, which makes it difficult to define. People often limit their definitions of creativity to art, but this is too limiting. Creativity comes in the form of original thought, divergent thinking, problem-solving, inspiration, and imagination. To improve creativity, it is essential that you understand the definition of creative thinking and what steps you can take to improve your thought process.

Creativity and innovation will improve your chances of success in business and life. Fortunately, you can take steps to inspire yourself and develop your creative mindset. By changing how you think and overcoming your fear of risk, you will improve your creativity and change your life.
