Kiss the Confusion & Self-Doubt Around Your Next Promotion ‘Goodbye’

Did you know…

  • Leadership development is the TOP priority for 55% of CEOs.


  • 44% of leaders feel worn out and plan to move to a new company in order to advance their careers.

    Many leaders end up making a lateral move ‘just to get out’ of the stressful situation. You need clarity and confidence around your unique strengths to go for that promotion.

NOW is the TIME to GO FOR IT!

Leadership is a dynamic field and there is a DEEP NEED in most organizations for leaders ready and prepared to lead through change.  Are you distracted by everyone else’s needs at the expense of your future?

Most leaders do not have the confidence and clarity around their unique strengths, so they do not step forward and go for the opportunity. And too many leaders do not recognize that having the right coach is the difference between success and being stalled.

Not taking action leaves you stuck with increasing doubt, confusion, and frustration.…

…all while trying to keep up with your day to day challenges.

We get it!

Dr. Cynthia Howard has been an executive coach for two decades and worked with scores of leaders moving them forward.

Being able to stop stress in its tracks will make me more productive and successful in my work, happier and more patient with my children, more relaxed and able to enjoy time with my husband. This experience was life changing.

I am such a firm believer in coaching; they help you see blind spots and give insights. Cynthia is a fountain of knowledge and experiences who sees opportunities in unexpected corners. In less than two months, I started a new position because she stretched me to develop and implement achievable goals. She listens and really cares.... She is exactly what I needed when I needed it.

Working with Dr. Howard changed my life. I was able to get the promotion and as a result of that I had an experience I never thought was possible – I went to NIH to work on a project. I know the confidence I gained as a result of the coaching made all the difference.
