At Storied Awareness, we believe that the richest path to improvement is where thinking and feeling intersect - and that this is tough work.  Our research-based programs provide a generative space for leaders to improve their craft and accelerate their impact in a supported, professional manner.

Executive Guide

No one hires an executive director or head of school expecting them to leave within a few years. No one takes a new job wanting to feel unsuccessful and overwhelmed. Yet again and again, this is what happens across the nonprofit sector. Organizations are especially vulnerable when the new hire has never held the role before.
The Executive Guide program addresses this vulnerability by helping leaders capitalize on strengths, improve where needed and manage the many layers of their role with grace. A combination of understanding, empathy and a spoonful of medicine, the Executive Guide program gives leaders what they need to flourish in the role.  
During the 9-month engagement, the Executive Director will: 
  • Identify organizational and personal leadership gaps
  • Define and accelerate progress towards personal and professional goals
  • Clarify impact on key stakeholders
  • Receive targeted technical support
  • Utilize guided self-reflection to continuously improve their leadership approach
  • One-on-one, weekly engagement comprising 60-minute sessions

Leadership Coaching

Again and again, I see how big dreams and goals lose their steam because leaders are not clear how to reach them. This can be frustrating because you don't have the luxury to waste money, time, energy and resources.

Through our 1:1 coaching relationship, you will find the space to untangle current challenges, understand what you can and cannot do to effect change, and put your dreams into action.
During coaching sessions you will:
  • Identify long-term and short-term goals and determine the steps necessary to achieve these
  • Assess current skills and identify any gaps, areas to strengthen and areas to hone
  • Increase self-awareness and expand thinking in regards to professional challenges and personal efficacy
  • Work one-on-one with Storied Awareness founder Michele Reiner, who will act as a sounding board, guide and accountability partner
  • Weekly engagements consisting of 60-minute sessions for a total of 4 hours per month. 
  • Clients typically work with Michele an average of 6 months
