Beth High

Creative, Compelling, Curious

These are three qualities I bring to every project. I embrace the metaphor that leadership development is an ongoing journey. As a result I focus on helping my clients establish ongoing development practices that will support them on that journey. I listen carefully and push my clients to explore their untested potential. 

Client Comments:

"Beth brings passion and creativity into every aspect of her work. She is a true partner, always working to understand our interests and bringing her own ideas to move us along."

"We started out as a bunch of skeptics. Beth helped us identify our common interests and the unique talents we each bring to the group. The result was we were able to set a realistic course that felt doable. We left feeling grounded and inspired. And we had a good time!”

"Beth has a way of handing out new tools that you can examine and play with, and before you know it, you're coming up with new ideas."

What I believe: 
  • A person who can tap into what they believe and still stay curious has the capacity to be a creative, effective,  committed leader.
  • Transparency is crucial for effective leadership.
  • To be transparent, a leader must be aware of his/her own values and the values of the organizations they are part of.
  • Leadership is about relationships.
  • We learn from each other.

Why I believe in The Leadership Challenge®: 
  • It is grounded in self and group awareness.
  • It is based on sound research versus a single source.
  • It is sustainable over a long period of time and maps well with other initiatives.
  • Its practical approach leads to quick application and subsequent business success.

I've been successful with clients if: 
  • They see the link between their goals and our time together.
  • They achieve peak performance by strengthening the abilities of others to excel.
  • They have laughed often.
  • They know the next right thing to do and are inspired to reach into the unknown.
