Each day, I am so grateful to honor my calling and serve in this way: I am a Master Certified Executive Coach (MCC) with 20 years of success in Leadership and Executive Development with Fortune 500/1000 leaders. I'm particularly recognized for my emotional intelligence-based work with strong-willed “Alpha” leaders and their teams. My background includes consulting and coaching in a number of industries and organizations including financial and insurance services, healthcare, information technology, consumer foods, hospitality, manufacturing and municipal government.
Since founding The Hauer Group, a strategic consulting and coaching firm in 1996, I have coached senior executives in high-profile global organizations including SAP, Anthem, Skanska USA, ConAgra Foods International, Newell Rubbermaid, LexisNexis, Marriott International, Nissan USA and others throughout the U.S., Canada, Latin America and Europe. In addition, as an Executive Coach for The Ken Blanchard Companies, I integrate valuable pioneering leadership tools, such as the Situational Leadership Model.
To build an instant connection with my clientele, I bring 17 years of real-world, corporate leadership experience. I served as Director of Marketing for AT&T and NCR Corporations and held key leadership and coaching positions for nearly fourteen years. In my early career years, I was Account Manager for Carlson Marketing Group and Marketing Manager for a financial institution.
My perspective on the value of coaching has been published in articles in Working Woman and HOW magazines, The CEO Refresher and various industry publications and metropolitan business press. I have also been honored to be a keynote speaker at the Sales and Marketing Executives International and National Association of Female Executives annual conferences.
I achieved my Master Certified Coach designation in 2005. I hold a Bachelors of Arts degree in Communications and completed a two-year International Coach Federation-accredited professional coach training program. My professional affiliations include the International Coach Federation, the International Association of Coaches, The Executive Coach Summit Planning Team, American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), The Emotional Intelligence Alliance, the Senior HRD Forum, and former officer of the Tampa Bay Coach Association. In addition, I am a graduate of the Leadership Pinellas Class of 2007, past member of Women Who Care and the Board of Directors, Tampa Bay Harvest, and Operation FoodShare hunger relief programs.
Most essential to caring for my spirit is serving the underserved. For me, the hungry, the homeless and the poverty-level elderly are especially close to my heart. I have been blessed to volunteer my time, creativity, energy and a portion of The Hauer Group's revenue to several organizations locally and globally, including Pinellas Hope, the Homeless Emergency Project, Cross Cultural Solutions, RCS and Neighborly Senior Services.
