Because coaching is such a joy for her, she also coaches individuals on personal, family, career, and spiritual concerns. Few things in life are more exciting to Leslie than partnering with and witnessing someone learn new ways of being and reshape themselves into the person they always wanted to be.
Leslie’s clients have included a multiple Emmy award-winning producer who wanted to leave the high-stress television industry; a sole proprietor of a public relations consulting firm who needed to balance her work and personal life; a woman partner in her father’s $500 million privately held manufacturing company torn up by family conflicts, power plays for control, and internal legal battles; a man feeling challenged leaving a long-term unhappy marriage who wanted a new sense of meaning for his life and perhaps a new career.
Leslie works with personal coaching clients on both a short-term and long-term basis. All Leslie’s personal coaching programs are completely confidential and personalized to the specific situation to insure that the client’s exact needs and goals are met.
