"Leland’s coaching ability is a reflection of his own life: healthy, positive, conscientious and successful.
The conversations we've had about life, relationships, work, etc have been incredibly meaningful and fulfilling for me. I think the feedback you’ve given me over the course of those conversations was invaluable, and a testament to your ability to listen, absorb, and help surface meaningful insights.
Ultimately you’ve had a very positive impact on my life as someone who not only deeply cares about me and my team but understands how to be successful, not just with work, but with all of the important things. You're a great human being and I've valued our relationship from the start."
Chief Technology Officer, Topanga Partners, Healthcare
"Your coaching pushed me to access a powerful strong vision for my future and the impact that I can make in the world.
You helped me realize that I will act as a strong advocate for diversity among underserved communities in parallel to building my new business. I'm feeling more confident than ever that I will succeed!"

"I'm getting immense value from this.
Before I met you, I was stuck, trying to muscle my way through some tough business issues.
Over the last few months working together, I've been having more open conversations - being more transparent and willing to say "I don't know" - what I'm realizing is I don't have to have all the answers. It allows my executive team to figure this out together.
What's more, the team is far more focused and I'm seeing a lot of progress on their end as a result of us having a better working relationship. I look forward to my management meetings now. And I've been able to create this kind of safe, collaborative, honest space with my executive team."

most people think
I'm too busy, there's no time to work out or relax
being tired and working weekends shows good work ethic
upleveling productivity gets me more done... yay
achievements define me
asking for help is a sign of weakness and incompetence
success is measured by performance
what's true for me is
self-care is a cornerstone to exceptional performance
finally setting boundaries is a sign of maturity and growth
fewer things, each done much better
somewhat, but we are SO MUCH MORE
it takes both strength and humility to ask for help
performance is secondary to learning / learning goals are...
