Maybe you’re a startup founder with passion, trying to build a business and raise a round of critical funding in complex circumstances where the rate of failure is high.
Maybe you need to make big changes and feel overwhelmed by the challenge. You’re looking for tools to quickly scale your impact, so you can draw people into the vision and shape your organization from the inside out.
Or perhaps you’re grappling with power plays and need to masterfully navigate bias. We all know that representation matters. Yet just 8.2% of Fortune 500 company CEOs are women and only 5% are African Americans.
Whatever your situation, I’ve been there myself or as a coach. I've stood in your shoes as a startup founder, change leader, CEO, board member, woman and working parent. I coach from the vantage of real experience. Together, we can open the door to limitless possibilities—for yourself, your organization, and your teams.
Sometimes, leadership can feel lonely.
Two-thirds of CEOs do not receive any outside leadership advice, but nearly all want it.
Why? Because it’s lonely at the top. A leader’s role is both unique and uniquely isolating. You have no true peers or role models, and that’s a special source of pressure and challenge.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
"Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile."
Give yourself the gift of growth
My favorite quote by Marshall Goldsmith captures what I’ve experienced in 20 years and over 10,000 hours of executive coaching.
You have to make a change to see a change.
I support people who want or choose to make big changes, often in complex and difficult circumstances.
Using a solid methodology that doesn’t overcomplicate, I help leaders reimagine what successful leadership is, and then make bold quantum leaps towards becoming their best selves—as leaders and as human beings.

"Bonnie is one of the rare outside consultants who is able to give advice like an insider.

“As a transgender person, there have not been very many people like me in executive and founder roles. Knowing that Bonnie had worked with gender-diverse individuals prior was comforting, but more than anything, her kind and understanding demeanor and ability to see me as a whole person was incredibly helpful.
