Helping you harness your strengths to unleash the potential that's already inside you

Do any of these sound familiar?

You find yourself working harder than ever

You're working longer hours, skipping breaks, and your mind is always on the job, even when you're away from the office. And yet you feel like you aren't doing enough.

You're exhausted and disheartened

Despite your best efforts and intentions, you never seem to get the results you are hoping for. And you don't know where to get the energy you need to try something new.

You feel like you're letting your people down

Your deep desire is to be an excellent leader, but it feels like you're dropping the ball more often than you're catching it. You feel like you and your people deserve more.

You are not alone! Many leaders struggle with the same issues.

If you’re like most of the leaders I work with, you’re currently zeroed in on how you’re falling short and letting yourself and others down.

But this focus is the single biggest problem you face.

Where your attention goes, your energy flows

So when you focus on weakness, you get weaker.

You become less creative, less engaged, and less effective.

You feel it, and so does everyone around you.

Deep down, you already know that focusing on weaknesses and trying harder isn’t the answer.

You really care about being a great leader, and that’s why you’re here.

You know that, in the words of Marshall Goldsmith,
What got you here won’t get you there.

So, what’s the alternative?

You don’t need another new tool or technique.

You need a new paradigm

Implementing a strengths-based approach to your life and work is one of the most rewarding and invigorating things you can do for yourself, your career, your team, and your family.

Imagine how your life and work would improve if you could harness your strengths in pursuit of your goals and dreams.

Strengths-Based Leadership and Executive Coaching & Training

Strengths-based leadership and management offers you transformative change.

It requires a mindset shift and a bit of practice until you get the hang of it.

That’s where I come in. I’m an experienced Leadership and Executive Coach and Trainer, with a particular focus on nurturing individual and team strengths.

My role is to support you to discover your strengths and hone your strengths-based leadership and management skills to unleash the energy, engagement and achievement you know you are capable of.

Hi, I'm Daria!

I understand the struggle and juggle that comes with leadership and management roles. There’s so much to get done that it becomes easy to lose focus on what’s really important.

I used to make the mistake of working harder and focusing all my personal and professional development efforts on trying to fix my weaknesses. And I burned out, every time.

Then I learned to work smarter by dialling into my strengths, and aligning my work with my sense of purpose.

Based on the experience of the leaders I work with, once you implement a strengths-based approach that gives you a sense of purpose, you’ll wonder how you ever worked any other way.

"The coaching session was a wonderful experience. I felt like I had plenty of time to consider Daria’s questions and respond in my own way. Her rephrasing and observations made me feel that she was really listening and seeking to understand with curiosity. Daria is well-equipped to help her clients develop and grow."
