Does this sound like you?

You are smart, talented and hard-working, and over the years that hard work has paid off, with a promotion and new responsibilities and opportunities. Exciting!

Only now you feel like you’re in over your head. As a manager you’re expected to show up, be strong and have answers. Your team is looking to you for certainty. How can you give that to them when inside you feel so unsure? 

There’s so much to juggle: Changing plans. Shifting deadlines. Personnel changes. Market shifts. Not to mention all the responsibilities you have on the home front. It can be completely overwhelming. 

You watch others get ahead and wonder how they do it? They make it seem so effortless. Sometimes you can’t help feeling that maybe you’re not enough – not talented enough, not smart enough, not confident enough, not political enough. 

The career you were so excited about is now taking a toll – on your confidence and on your personal life. There never seems to be enough time to do what you want or need to do, and you end up questioning yourself, full of doubt. Do you want that next promotion? Are you ready? Could you even do it? What if it just led to more overwhelm? Until you feel truly stuck.

It doesn’t have to be this way…

If you’ve been putting in overtime to get ahead only to feel overworked, and overwhelmed, consider this:

Hi! I’m Alida Zweidler-McKay

I teach smart, talented managers like you to build the skills and executive presence needed to get ahead. My coaching helps them identify exactly what they want and what they need to do to get there. They learn to lead with confidence, delegate with authority and gain recognition for their efforts—without coming across as pushy. They build crucial partnerships with team members, colleagues and senior leaders that enable them to advance quickly in their careers.

But that’s not where the impact ends.

They also find more time for family and friends, exercise, healthy eating and getting the rest they need and deserve.

What makes my approach so effective?

There are so many coaches out there. Many have just coached. I’ve spent the past 20 years in the trenches helping leaders build high performing teams, win support for their ideas, and implement massive changes. I know exactly what it takes to be successful in complex organization. I get what my clients are going through and what will make a real difference for them. 

See if any of these results resonate with you…

Working with me should be a safe space where you can open up about anything in your work and personal life.
Client names have been changed to honor that.

Project Team Lead

Through our work together, Kathy transformed her team from a culture of bickering and blame to one of collaborative innovation that led to their work being featured on several television programs.

Division Leader

As a division leader, Sarah was burned out and bogged down by details. With my coaching, she learned how to powerfully delegate and re-focus her energy on leading her company into a new market, which earned her a huge promotion.

Regional Vice President

Erica went from being insecure and apologetic to finding her own authoritative-yet-caring voice. Her new style of holding her team accountable resulted in the region exceeding their performance targets.

Sales Manager

Daniel needed to unite a team of sales people to work with customers in an entirely new way. Our work helped him deliver clear direction and implement structures that kept the team focused in a culture of collaboration and idea-sharing.

Ready to be genuinely energized and motivated at work?

Watch my workshop now and take the first steps toward a new reality in your career. You have nothing to lose. The ideas shared here can make all the difference in your work life, and even if you decide to do nothing afterwards, you’ll walk away with highly valuable (and actionable) insights you can take to the office right away.

Is this right for YOU?

While I would love to help everyone, I’m deeply committed to serving a very select group of clients extremely well.

That’s why I only work with professionals who are open to personal growth and reflection, who work hard at their jobs, care deeply about the people around them, and are coachable.

That means they’re willing and able to devote the time and effort to experiment with what I’m suggesting, they take ownership for their challenges, and they’re authentic in their communications. If that’s not you, my coaching isn’t a match. If it is, I look forward to connecting once you’ve watched the workshop.
