Many executive headaches revolve around leadership issues.

Here’s what I see among too many leaders today...

  • Unproductive working relationships with their colleagues and direct reports.
  • Insufficient “leadership presence” for promotion.
  • Ineffective and dysfunctional team meetings.
  • Lack of self-awareness leading to inappropriate behaviors.
  • Reduced productivity due to inability or unwillingness to delegate.

You know from painful experience that these problems don't go away on their own. The critical question is this: do you want to keep fighting the fires as they come up, or are you ready to seek lasting change to improve your effectiveness as a leader and drive business results?

For over twenty years, I have tackled head-on the stubborn issues that prevent leadership effectiveness. Through executive coaching and leadership team development, I focus on helping develop emotional intelligence in leaders and collaboration within leadership teams.  

I have experience in almost all industries, with a concentration of clients in financial services, biotech and healthcare. My clients consistently tell me that I’ve restored trust and inspired teamwork in their organizations.

To discuss how you can benefit from “Leadership Coaching” contact Tom Ucko at 415-924-7010. There is no cost for an initial consultation, and no obligation to continue.

After a most difficult period in my career, with my reputation suffering, I began working with Tom. He not only guided me in dealing with the tough situations I faced each day, he helped me regain confidence and optimism about my career, and ultimately enabled me to restore my reputation. Because of Tom’s coaching my standing in the organization has been elevated to the point where I received the highest (and rare) bonus level and am now being considered for promotion. I could not have done all this by myself.
