Helping overwhelmed managers become confident and capable leaders

Stop commanding and start coaching

Most people believe that leadership is about confidence but being a true leader is motivating others to be the best version of themselves.

about me

Melissa K Lowe

Life + Leadership Coach

I eventually loved being a manager but my first years leading a team didn't love me back. I was consistently putting in 60 to 70 hour weeks trying to stay on top of everyone's work. I received no formal training or support so I spent countless hours researching and reading about how to be a good leader. I finally got to a point where I solidified my unique leadership style and it was a game changer in terms of confidence and work life balance. That's why I'm here. As your coach, I'm here to help you navigate this new world of leadership by helping you feel more in control of your day and keeping you focused on what really matters. As you lean into your natural strengths, you will feel more confident and show up for your team in a way that allows them to perform at their best. Are you ready to create a better life for yourself and inspire change in others by embracing your natural strengths?

You were calm, supportive, and positive in your demeanor. I noticed that you were good about keeping your facial expressions mostly neutral when I was sharing vulnerably, but I still felt your kindness and support. You also did a good job of being thoughtful in your responses, taking a pause before responding and avoiding qualifying statements/opinions. I felt that you really listened to what I had to say, and therefore, the questions you asked me and suggestions you made were very tailored to me. It felt like we were working together, more collaborative than instructive. I walked away feeling empowered and excited for making changes.

Empathy, clarity, patience, a good listening ear, interpretation, interpolation, revelation, a safe space, professionalism, joy, a sense of calm, genuineness, relatability, strength and support, encouragement to be who I am and yet be all I can be. I knew I was being heard and she made me feel like I could do absolutely anything, like I was championed and made arrangements to follow up so I don’t get off track. She called me phenomenal but that’s pretty much what she is as well. 12 out of 10 recommend.
