CLIENT REFLECTIONS ...
I worked with Beata when I was a new, first-time CEO, in an extremely technical industry (lasers for manufacturing--you can count the female CEOs on one hand). While I had the pull of customers in Japan and a technical team in Silicon Valley, even some early angel investors, I also had a lot of doubts. Beata helped me develop an awareness of my unique leadership style, accept its validity, recognize its value to others, and get comfortable so that I could engage in crucial conversations with C-suite executives and investors. Developing this confidence was crucial to raising institutional financing in the wake of the Lehman Brothers collapse in January of 2009, and to engaging multi-billion dollar market-leaders in building multiple start-ups (two have now exited). Coaching with Beata was a self-defining and excellent choice, and I am reminded of it often as I now raise my son to be confident and true to his core values.

Beata is fantastic, she gets right to the heart of the matter, helps me clearly see and define the issues and identify a path forward. On multiple occasions, her insights into human motivation and behavior have been instrumental in communicating effectively and influencing several members of senior management.
M. O’Donovan, Senior Director - Regulatory, Biomarin Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Beata is a great, personable coach with tremendous intuition, creativity and an orientation for results--but more importantly: an orientation for making sure the results are actually aligned with what her clients TRULY want (which sometimes isn't the same as they initially think they want). Beata coached me (and later also my business partner) during a period where my company grew from being a single contractor through becoming an international partnership to a corporation with 10 to 12 employees in 3 countries with sales of over $ 1.5 million. She not only coached me from a business perspective but held me as a complete person (which in my case included my spiritual aspirations and crises) and helped me to weather the storms of a "bad" economy as well as eventually selling my business (while it was having its best year yet) and transitioning to a new area of work with the financial security I received from the sale. Beata incorporates many different methods into her coaching practice, which highly increases the value of her sessions. I really enjoy working with Beata and recommend her to anyone who is dealing with the responsibility of running their own business or who is holding or aspiring to a leadership role in any area of life.

...leaders today face unprecedented challenges that can result in a vicious cycle of stress, pressure, sacrifice, and dissonance. To counter the inevitable challenges of leadership roles, we need to engage in a conscious process of renewal both on a daily basis and over time. To do so, most of us need to intentionally transform our approach to managing ourselves, and we need to learn new behaviors - practices that enable us to maintain internal resonance and attunement with those we lead. We need to cultivate mindfulness and learn to engage the experiences of hope and compassion. We need to focus deliberately on creating resonance within ourselves - mind, body, heart, and spirit - and then channel our resonance to the people and groups around us.
Resonant Leadership, by Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee
...The real task of leadership is to provide an emotional environment in which people feel valued, satisfied, and certain as they contribute their talents and abilities. That leads to higher productivity, greater personal happiness, and an intelligence that increases with the diversity of the team.
Built on Trust: Gaining Competitive Advantage in Any Organization, by Arky Ciancutti, MD, and Thomas L. Steding, PhD
Creative leading is not about incremental process improvements. It comprises actions dedicated to change - changing attitudes, behaviors, living conditions, people’s sense of capability and well-being - in the real world.
The Arch and the Path: The Life of Leading Greatly, by Michael H. Shenkman, PhD
We live in a world that's increasingly social, interdependent, and transparent. And in this world, feminine values are ascendant. Powered by cooperation, communication, nurturing, and inclusiveness, among others, institutions, businesses, and individuals are breaking from old masculine structures and mind-sets to become more flexible, collaborative, and caring. Our data show that this change is deemed necessary, and is welcomed, by strong majorities in every country we surveyed. … This shift toward the feminine does not portend "the end of men," but it does suggest a natural balancing that vastly increases the capacity of both men and women to solve problems and create a good life.
