What You Can Expect From Us

We leverage our extensive experience with innovative growth companies in biotech / tech and our portfolio of services to facilitate real conversations that candidly state the unstated toward enabling effective change.  We help leaders and teams envision and sustain their desired change — individually, collectively, strategically — and identify and overcome obstacles from “here to there.”  

Our shared focus is to identify and transform constraints to growth and development for leaders and teams while maintaining focus on delivering the strategic objectives of the business

Evoking Insights approaches each engagement (whether coaching or consulting) by starting with an inquiry based discovery process. This allows our approach to be laser-focused and customized to each individual leader and their specific business context and needs. Through this process, we co-create a path towards cultivating strong leadership that manifests sustainable strategic change.    

Evoking Insights works collaboratively with clients to uncover key issues, assumptions and perspectives and to: 

  • Identify strengths to leverage as well as obstacles that may be standing in the way of achieving desired results
  • Examine areas of leverage for behavioral and / or strategic change 
  • Reveal insights that lead to new possibilities, choices and actions and real business results
  • Develop a vision and a plan to realize it 
  • Develop a new leadership paradigm to deliver transformational results

The above approach to working with coaching and consulting clients leads to the following outcomes and benefits:

  • Lead more effectively in the most difficult and often high-stakes scenarios
  • Experience more constructive, creative and meaningful interactions
  • Greater confidence as a transformational leader
  • Greater clarity, focus and intentionality in both how you lead and where you lead
  • The strategic mindset, skills and behaviors to create lasting transformation
  • Organizational alignment to deliver the envisioned business strategy and results
  • Translate new insight, to action, to impact 
  • Break through obstacles
