In the past, hiring a professional coach was a sign of addressing a need, whether there was a gap in necessary skills, an identified drop in performance, or a need to address toxic behavior.
Today, individuals and companies alike seek coaching to develop the capabilities of high-potential employees, provide accountability for leaders in career transition, or act as a sounding board as they craft a vision for professional growth and development.
You are a seasoned executive who wants to lead with greater impact and influence. Maybe you are transitioning into an executive role and want to develop your executive presence and leadership brand. Or perhaps you have your eyes on your next promotion and want to improve your communication style and create the mindset of the leader you have always wanted to become.
Whether you are seeking to close a skill gap or simply be great in your current role, I understand what it takes to develop impactful leaders and can help you reach peak performance in the areas that are most critical to your success and happiness.
Executive coaching can help you:
"Anyone wanting to take their career to another level would be wise to engage Dr. Parker. I met her a little over a year ago and her coaching has helped me build a platform of confidence that has turned into a life-changing experience. Not only am I thriving in a successful career, but she helped me dive fearlessly into a new, senior-level role that has paid off in dividends. There is something about her technique that gets to the heart of matters and unlocks the best kind of change."

You wake up one day and realize you did all the things you were supposed to do, but something is still missing in your career. You find yourself asking, “Is this all there is? Is this why I worked so hard?” Maybe you feel stuck, bored, or unfulfilled. Maybe you know it’s time to make a change, but you don’t know which change to make or how to make it. Or maybe you know exactly where you want to go and just need someone to help hold you accountable to your dreams.
Whether you are looking for a new career or simply want to find purpose and fulfillment in your current role, I understand how to get at the core drivers that lead to career satisfaction. I can help you create a powerful vision for career that fits with your life and aspirations, as well as assess opportunities for your development and growth.

In a series of one-to-one meetings over several months, I will work with you to identify and focus on goals that result in progress toward your ultimate career and professional success. Between meetings, homework is assigned to help meet your goals.
Coaching sessions are typically 3-4 times a month for 60 minutes each, with availability via email or phone for one-off check-ins or issues as they arise between sessions. Sessions can be in person in the Phoenix metro area, over the phone, or via online meeting, based on schedules, travel, and other needs.
Because coaching success requires effort on both our parts, I advise all clients to understand that professional transformation takes time.
Executive coaching relationships have a minimum expectation of 6 months, while career coaching relationships have a minimum expectation of 3 months. Shorter agreements can be explored on a case-by-case basis, and longer agreements will be based on the benchmarks and progress of the initial agreement.
