Executive Coaching On Transgender Issues

Vanessa Sheridan enjoys working with CEO's, executives and other business leaders. She helps them develop their knowledge and expertise about transgender in ways that will strongly benefit their organizations. She understands the value of an informed, knowledgeable coach/guide who can support and assist business leaders as they act decisively for the people of their organizations.

Vanessa knows that an important aspect of leadership involves nurturing and supporting your organization's people. Nurturing people in an organizational business setting includes two distinctive leadership characteristics:

  • Empathy--When dealing with transgender issues on the job, empathy means becoming aware of and honestly attempting to understand the feelings and situations of transgender as well as non-transgender workers. Business leaders are at their best when their empathy allows them to discern and serve the needs of their people. Vanessa Sheridan will help you tap into this important leadership quality and assist you in developing effective, equitable strategies to handle transgender-in-the-workplace matters.
  • Responsibility--Responsibility is a social force that binds individuals to their obligations. An informed acceptance of responsibility can motivate leaders toward an appropriate course of action to meet those important obligations. Leadership responsibility involves being personally accountable for ethical decisions that affect the people of the organization. When issues of fairness for everyone in the organization are at stake, leaders must make firm, equitable decisions--and stick to them. Vanessa Sheridan helps business leaders position themselves to make strong decisions that lead to positive action.
