What are our hopes as doers? A promotion! Except a great doer doesn't always know how to communicate their skills onto a team. Without this, you will perpetually stay in doer mode causing frustration, resentment, and turnover on your team. This is what I refer to as "death by doer."

Unknowingly killing all hope, creativity, and productivity of a team.

Moving into a leadership role should feel exciting, not like babysitting!

It might not always be a basket of puppies wearing bow ties, but it shouldn’t make you want to pull your hair out in frustration.

Feeling like you're pulling your team along and doing everything for them can make you feel this way.

I want you to know, if you think you can't lead a team — you CAN and with you as their leader you will do more than you could alone.

Stop Feeling Intimidated 

Or maybe you're intimidated by leading because you lack the belief in your own abilities. You think you need a special degree or decades of experience. 

If you've thought, I'm going to have to stay where I am. I want you to know you have EXACTLY what you need for a role in leadership!

YOU are awesome the way you arebut the way you communicate isn’t helping you

Common Mistakes I See

Thinking you can do it all

"I'll just do it myself because it will be faster." I said this as a new leader too! Communicating a task properly will actually save you time in the long run.


From my 15 years as a manager I can tell you that assumption is the root of all evil and will frustrate you and irritate your team all at the same time.

Emily is thoughtful and direct. Through this approach of being empathetic, but not shying away from hard conversations, she really helped face tough career decisions.

As someone new to leadership, Emily offered me a point of view I could relate to, but from a vantage point of having been there already.

Because she is a life coach and not just career, her holistic way of thinking helped me pinpoint ways to correct both. I have since recommended her to over 5 people and will continue to do so.

Her help is invaluable!

Your Guide, Emily Hawkins

As a new leader early in my career I fell flat on my face! Only after digging into my personal beliefs about myself and my talents could I truly understand how to share and lead a team.  With this knowledge I quickly put my findings into practice and grew my team into the most productive in the company
Taking what I learned , I have created an easy to follow process to help you sustainably lead teams and grow your influence.
My life's mission is to help you discover and utilize your talents for productive lasting results that inspire the people around you.
