Great Leaders Are Made, Not Born

Effective leadership requires dedication, introspection, and meticulous planning. At Hamilton & Associates, we provide customized executive coaching for entrepreneurs, top-level corporate executives, and mid-level associates in all industries, tailored to your specific work style and designed to help you achieve your short-and long-term leadership goals.

As a top-level executive for more than 30 years, Hamilton & Associates CEO, Theresa Hamilton has experienced firsthand the challenges that come with leadership. It’s this personal insight and understanding she brings to every coaching engagement – helping you to identify the tools and traits that can make you more effective, more engaged, and ultimately more fulfilled.

“I believe that becoming a true leader is far more than a process or program. It’s a journey of self-discovery and awareness. One shaped by inspiration, yet grounded in reality.”

A Journey of Discovery and Growth

Reflection & Realization

Together through dialogue and self-guided exercises, we will set a baseline for growth. You’ll be able to establish your strengths, identify areas of improvement, and clarify your goals and objectives.


Outside Perspective

Interviewing team members and key stakeholders will provide an unfiltered view of your leadership presence. We’ll summarize and map their input against your self-assessment to develop a clear picture of where you stand and what steps you can take to improve your performance, realize your goals, and fulfill your potential.

Direction & Aspiration

Together we’ll create an action plan with specific metrics to chart your success. Once your goals have been achieved, we’ll set our sights on what comes next. What new horizons do you want to reach? What new challenges would you like to conquer?


Building Our Relationship

By connecting in person, we will customize our time together based on your situation and schedule. A typical coaching engagement includes two in-person sessions per month. Ideally, these would be held on-site to help gain context of your environment and the dynamics at play “on the ground.”
