We asked Pat about herself:
I find leadership development meaningful because it makes a difference in the lives of the people we serve, as well as those they touch. When we gain insights into our leadership behaviors it transforms us forever and makes us more successful in business and life.
My strength as a coach is in helping leaders see and leverage their strengths and define the gaps in where their behavior or goals are, and where they want them to be. Through honest communication and feedback I can them help them create and execute a plan to close the gaps. My directness and humor help accomplish this in a way that’s comfortable. These strengths also help me serve my clients in identifying gaps and solutions for their businesses.
My favorite leadership quote is the question posed by Ken Blanchard, “Am I a serving leader or a self–serving leader?” I ask myself this question all the time as I seek to be a blessing to others.
