An example of how I have used The Peoplemap with an executive coaching client may prove useful to demonstrate the power of this unique assessment. June (name changed) came to me for coaching. She wanted to improve on her role as Vice President of a department with a major international bank. She was very happy with her work, but having difficulty with her team. Specifically she heard subtle feedback that they often saw her as a tyrant, and that she often appeared aloof.

By DeeAnna Merz Nagel. LMHC, BCC Back in the day, we were all on listservs such as Yahoo Groups.  Now Facebook and Linkedin Groups have largely taken the place of other online “bulletin board” formats.   Various organizations and like-minded professionals often create groups to communicate efficiently with one another.  Once a member, you can usually be notified by email when new member activity takes place, or you may be like me and keep your Facebook open most of the workday.  Many coach groups focus on providing a place to network, share resources, find potential referr ..read more
