Executive Vice President
I was a participant in Maximize HER Leadership. The information gained from this course was rich and insightful. It helped me understand myself as a leader, the value I bring to an organization, and my leadership styles. One of the most interesting weeks I enjoyed was going through a case study wearing a CEO hat and understanding what was wrong with the business. I felt like I could come into this program and be myself; it enriched my life personally and professionally.
The Maximize HER Leadership program helped me in so many ways. First, the program helped me become more self-aware, homing in on how I react to challenging pressure situations at work, enabling me to explore solutions amongst a group of female peers. Second, the program’s content is extremely rich, including videos, breakout sessions, articles, great guest speakers, and a self-assessment to help me identify my strengths and weaknesses and use them as an advantage. Third, the program helped me identify my objectives, find and nurture my unique sources of power, and strategize and transform my purpose as an up-and-coming leader in my organization. The program exceeded my expectations and provided me with what I needed to become a powerful and purpose-driven leader.

“With decades of experience, Lillian gives you the necessary tools and facilitates discussions meeting you where you are on your journey and helping you recognize your potential and how far you can go. She does not give you answers but asks probing questions that help you arrive at the “ahas” you seek. Her demeanor is calming and disarming, which forces you to examine issues in their entirety. She has a knack for helping you get ‘unstuck’ in your thinking to appreciate the bigger picture.”
“Lillian is a transformative executive-level coach. She stands out because her coaching is grounded in gifts and talents that she leverages to address your unique needs. I think Lillian’s secret sauce is that she is a deep listener who does so with ease and asks excellent follow-up questions with genuine respect and insight. She then very quickly connects the dots and recommends useful on-target exercises. In retrospect, the solution(s) may seem obvious to you, but a talented and empathetic coach like Lillian is essential to help experienced professionals achieve their goals during challenging moments. She believes that everyone has gifts and a unique purpose and is very skilled in providing thoughtful recommendations to help you stay on course. I highly recommend Lillian as an executive coach.
