Executive Client Testimonials
As a Chief Financial Officer, I chose to work with Kristina for her direct style, structured approach and negotiating skills.  Having worked with her over several months, what I most appreciate is her insight – she’s able to pick up on underlying issues by listening carefully to what I say and the words I use as well as watching my follow-up actions, observing where I dive in with enthusiasm and where I hesitate.   I’m a natural at spotting patterns in numbers, data and even relationships, but spotting patterns in myself is more of challenge so Kristina’s insights have really served as a mirror, helping me identify my values and show up as my true self.

While I initially engaged Kristina to work on developing a career strategy as I contemplated some key choices, I’ve continued to work with her as an executive coach.  We’ve worked to develop approaches for solving difficult problems and she helps me to see things from other angles I may not have originally considered.  This has helped me engage in senior level conversations with executive presence.  We consistently address the problems at hand and at the same time, I come away with at least 2-3 new insights on my executive development journey.  

Kristina brings a breadth of knowledge that positions her to approach coaching from a holistic perspective, addressing issues from the technical to the introspective.  Her coaching has helped me move to the next level.

Executive Coaching for Politics

As the sole female candidate Mayor of Gatineau in 2017, Quebec’s 4th largest city; Kristina has not only been my coach but a trusted advisor. I engaged with Kristina as I made the decision to commit to becoming the first female mayor for the city since the amalgamations; while still in my second term as a Gatineau Councilor.
I believe the biggest outcome working with Kristina was in the autumn of 2014 after we completed the inner work necessary to create a framework to best position myself strategically as a leader in my existing role as Councilor. I then used this knowledge to win the elected position of 3rd Vice-President for the Canadian Federation of Municipalities the following summer. Reaching this objective allowed me to enhance and strengthen my leadership vision and ultimately set a course of action for the 2017 mayoral campaign.
Kristina’s ability and willingness to understand hurdles unique to all of us as individuals allows for a dynamic exchange with quantifiable results. Together we share my vocational aspirations to inspire women to strive for executive leadership roles in the broader political, private public service arenas. In realizing my goals I have also been able to mentor and support other women (and men) in their pursuit of public office.
Kristina’s customized executive development program was uniquely tailored to me, my development, interests, accountability and future goals. I can attest to Kristina’s effectiveness and her ability to care about my desired outcomes. With her support I have gained clarity of my vision and the role I can play in my own success and that of others.

The Leadership Circle Profile 360 Assessment measures your leadership competencies helps you understand the inner assumptions that drive behavior. The aim is to create awareness and cultivate insight that will enhance your leadership effectiveness.

Two Domains of Leadership

Creative competencies are well-researched competencies that measure how leaders achieve results, bring out the best in others, lead with vision, enhance your own development, act with integrity, and encourage and improve organizational systems.

Reactive tendencies are leadership styles that emphasize caution over creating results, self-protection over productive engagement, and aggression over building alignment. These self-limiting styles overemphasize the focus on gaining the approval of others, protecting oneself, and getting results through high control tactics.
