Go from stumbling around to sailing through difficult workplace situations.
You’re a bright, motivated, and caring professional woman. You love your job, but there are some days you just want to hide under the covers because of difficult workplace situations. Perhaps it’s unhealthy team dynamics, someone’s dysfunctional communication style, or delivering sensitive feedback that’s tripping you up.
You feel like you’re stuck in the middle of a perfect storm. The pressures from above seem like they’ll never end and your team needs a lot of your time and attention. You’re trying to manage it all, but the same issues seem to keep resurfacing and some things are starting to fall through the cracks. You know that in order to shift things you need to change what you’re doing, but you’re not sure how or what shifts would actually be helpful.
To top it all off, your mind seems to have gone rogue on you. You’re up in the middle of the night, flip-flopping between blame and shame as you google all of the things you should have said and done better. You’ve even started venting to your friends and family about your workplace frustrations, when you’d much rather be out enjoying your time with them.
You just want to feel clear and confident in difficult situations so that you can spend more of your precious time and energy on the work that you love.
You wish you could find better ways to cultivate healthy working relationships and high performance within your team. You want to be the kind of leader who can deliver difficult feedback, while inspiring a sense of confidence and motivation.
Imagine walking into the office every day knowing that you have the skills to collaborate on decisions when needed and to get buy-in when you have to make a tough call. You manage-up when necessary so that your team doesn’t become overwhelmed, and you rally people together in stressful times when the pressure’s on and work needs to get done.
Most importantly, imagine feeling proud of yourself for stretching out of your comfort zone and developing new skills that help you deliver results in a way that is both healthy and productive.

The She Blooms: Leadership Development Coaching Program includes:
(1) A Leading Assessment Inventory and Report
OPTION A – The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i. 2.0) and Report: The EQ-i 2.0 is the world’s leading assessment tool used for assessing emotional and social intelligence, which are the key indicators for successful leaders. This tool will provide you with a picture of how you operate emotionally, your areas of strength, and potential areas for development. Data collected from thousands of the world’s best leaders and their subordinates reveals that there are 4 keys to success for leaders: authenticity, coaching, insight, and innovation. The EQ-i 2.0 Leadership Report that you will receive provides a detailed analysis of your results in these areas and the scales and subscales that contribute to them so that you can easily get started on improving your leadership skills. Learn more about the EQ-i 2.0 HERE.
OPTION B – The Conflict Dynamics Profile – I (CDP-I) Inventory and Report: The CDP-I is a questionnaire that measures how you react in conflict situations. Your personalized report will allow you to better understand what you currently do that that keeps the harmful effects of conflict to a minimum and what you currently do that escalates or prolongs conflict situations. In addition to your CDP-I Report, you’ll receive a 40-page Development Guide filled with tips and tools on how to deescalate difficult situations and manage your hot buttons more effectively. The guide also contains a cheat sheet that will help you to identify what you’re doing well and your opportunities for development. Learn more about the CDP HERE.
(Please note that both of these inventories are available as 360 degree feedback inventories. Contact me for pricing information if you’re interested in this option.)
(2) Seven Power Coaching Sessions
These laser-focused coaching sessions will help you close the gap between your current leadership style and how you would actually like to show up as a leader.
Session 1 (60 minutes): Introductory Session – In your Introductory Session, we’ll focus on who you are, what motivates you, and how you want to show up as a leader (i.e., your “Why?”). We’ll also delve into the general areas that you’d like to work on, where you’re feeling most stuck, and start to draw upon the strengths that you can leverage to help you reach your leadership goals.
Session 2 (60 minutes): Coaching Session – In Session 2 we’ll start to unpack the areas that you identified in your Introductory Session. You’ll receive a Coaching Prep Sheet to help you prepare for this session (and future ones). During the session, I’ll ask you a series of questions to dig into the topic you’ve selected for coaching, increase your self-awareness, and gently challenge you to stretch into new territory so you can reach your goals. Session 2 will give us a sense of where to focus our energy and highlight any blind spots that might emerge after you receive the results of your chosen inventory. And at the end of Session 2, you’ll receive your chosen inventory to complete before Session 3.
Session 3 (60 minutes): Coaching Session – In sessions 3, 4, 6 and 7, we’ll review your inventory results and use them as a basis for coaching. We’ll start every coaching session by following-up on the action steps that you came up with in the previous session. Then we’ll focus on your coaching goal for the session.
Session 4 (60 minutes): Coaching Session (see description above)
Session 5 (20 minutes): Integration Session – After Session 4, we’ll have a 20-minute Integration Session that will allow you to take stock of the progress you’ve made to date and fine tune the general areas you’d like to focus on during sessions 6 and 7.
Session 6 (60 minutes): Coaching Session (see description above)
Session 7 (60 minutes): Coaching and Wrap-Up Session – In our last session we’ll split the time between a Coaching Session and a Wrap-Up Session. The wrap-up portion of the session will allow you to further integrate the shifts you’ve made throughout the program and create a plan to continue your progress. You’ll also receive a reusable Action Planning Template that will keep you on track after our coaching sessions so that you can continue to grow and evolve as a leader.

“Working with Nayla has increased my confidence as a supervisor and given me great new ideas about how to approach difficult situations so that I can achieve better outcomes. I’m now much more able to tackle difficult conversations head on instead of avoiding them.” – Anna Wong, Senior Policy Associate, W. Haywood Burns Institute, Oakland, CA
“Nayla’s been great at helping me get rid of the negative thoughts that were running through my mind and undermining my confidence. I now have a much more realistic and positive mindset and this has enabled me to find the courage to put myself out there and run my business like a true leader.” – Rocio Fallas, M.Eng., Owner, Solmed Business Strategies, Heredia, Costa Rica
“As a director, I have an extremely busy job. After working with Nayla, I feel more in control of myself and more organized. I have moved from a state of disconnection, where I felt that I was doing things in a very hurried manner, to a more structured place that I had always wanted to achieve. Nayla was great at helping me figure out what steps I needed to take to become more productive and at the same time feel calmer.” – April Chavez, Director of Financial Aid, Clovis Community College, Clovis, NM, USA
