Barbara Braham Ph.D., an Executive and Leadership coach, works with management teams who want to move their organization forward and individuals who want to realize their
potential. In 1990, she added coaching services to her consulting and training business and she now coaches senior managers, executives and small business owners. A member of the
International Coach Federation, she has earned their highest designation, Master Certified Coach. Coaching gives Barbara the opportunity to work with individuals who, like herself, are committed to
professional development and personal growth. Her coaching services are designed to help people
- get the outcomes they want in their work and in their relationships
- make successful transitions into new roles and responsibilities
- expand their capacity to learn and self-correct
Barbara has worked with leaders in not-for-profits,
government, associations and corporations. Typically she is engaged because a leader has assumed a new position, is being groomed for a higher position, or to address a
blind spot that is limiting the effectiveness of the leader. She uses a variety of assessment tools in her work including The Leadership Circle Profile (TLCP) 360, the
Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP), MBTI and the DiSC personal profile. She has been coaching in the Notre Dame Executive Integral Leadership Program since 2004 in
collaboration with The Leadership Circle. She also serves on the faculty of the Georgetown Leadership Coaching Certificate program where she teaches a class on stages of development and coaching.
Since 2005 Barbara has been studying stages of adult development theory with a focus on its application to coaching. She is certified to debrief the MAP assessment
and is in training with Dr Susanne Cook-Greuter to become a certified scorer of the MAP. Barbara is currently engaged in a research project investigating what supports
postconventional stages of development.
An accomplished author, Barbara has written eleven books and one e-book. Be Your Own Coach, co-authored with
Chris Wahl, is her latest book. Her first book, CALM Down: How To Manage Stress at Work, was a featured selection in the Macmillan Executive Book of the Month Club. Finding Your Purpose has been translated into seven
languages. In addition to her books, she has recorded one audio learning program and two CD's.
Barbara has been an adjunct faculty member at the
University of Minnesota, Wright State University and The Ohio State University. She is currently an Adjunct faculty member at Antioch University McGregor.
