    Help your managers and directors succeed

    Most new leaders are unprepared for the new identity they need to succeed in their career change in management. And those managers often have the greatest impact on your employee engagement and retention.

    Professional coaching can more than triple leaders’ improvement compared to leadership training alone. Northway Insights complements your company’s general training program with one-on-one professional coaching for IT and Software Engineering leaders.

    I’m Steve Dwire. Here’s how I help…

    After decades leading technology teams in everything from a tiny startup to a Fortune 100 company, I became a respected advocate for IT and software engineering teams and a trusted voice for CEOs as they navigated their own challenging decisions.

    My passion is helping growing leaders. Here’s how they have described their challenges:

    🚫 I don’t feel like I’m being productive.
    🚫 I’m not seeing the results I expect to see.
    🚫 I’m exhausted from the work it takes to get results.
    🚫 I have a hard time speaking up in meetings with peers.
    🚫 My team doesn’t get the support they need to succeed.
    🚫 The results I’m getting aren’t as fulfilling as I expected.
    🚫 People don’t seem to be hearing what I’m trying to say.
    🚫 My team doesn’t seem aligned with our mission or vision.

    Uncovering the growth opportunity takes time, effort, and vulnerability. Here are just a few examples I’ve helped people work through:

    ⛔ Mindset/identity issues that silence constructive dialog.
    ⛔ Running out of creative energy when the work’s value is not clear.
    ⛔ Imposter feelings that lead one to avoid growth and responsibility.
    ⛔ Lack of productivity when people fear their work will be second-guessed.
    ⛔ Limited either/or options that hide more effective both/neither possibilities.
    ⛔ Heroism culture that rewards expensive rescue efforts more than prevention.
    ⛔ Mistaken impression that a problem is someone else’s responsibility to solve.
    ⛔ Weak collaboration between teams with a preference for I-win/you-lose solutions.

    Challenge

    The first step in any engagement or coaching session is to clarify how you perceive the challenge you want to address.

    • How does the problem show up?
    • What is its impact on you personally?
      on your business?
      on your family, team members, peers?
    • How will you know when it has been fixed?

    Exploration

    With a clear description of your challenge, you’ll expand your thinking to explore related areas. You’ll uncover patterns of thinking and behavior that reveal the root problems that really need your attention.

    It’s been said that you can’t read the label when you’re living inside the bottle. A professional coach brings the outside perspective to see what others can’t see and to read your label by noticing what you’re saying repeatedly as well as what you’re not saying at all.

    Probe

    As we explore together, you’ll face mental barriers, blinders, and biases that keep you from seeing the whole picture and finding your solution. A professional coach can say what others won’t say to help you find and overcome your limiting beliefs.

    This is where the hardest work gets done. The more open, honest, and vulnerable you are in the probe, the more clearly you’ll see the real problem and the steps to solving it.

    Insight

    You’ll find several moments during the exploration and probe where you say “Hmmm…” or “Ah…” or “That’s a good question; let me think about that.”

    Those are insight moments. But insight alone isn’t enough.

    In the final stage of a coaching session or engagement, you’ll reflect on your new insights and make your own commitments to different action to bring better results.

    Looking at professional coaching?

    Want a taste of what this looks like?

    For you

    My professional coaching may be right for you if:

    ✅ You can identify a specific goal or outcome you want to reach

    ✅ You’re ready for personal growth and change to achieve your goals

    ✅ You have a track record of taking personal responsibility for your success

    ✅ You’re willing to be open, transparent, and vulnerable in a safe environment

    ✅ You’re generally healthy in the area where you want to focus, and you’re looking for growth or achievement

    Not for you

    My coaching may not be a good fit for you if:

    ⛔ You’re just curious about how coaching might help

    ⛔ You need someone else to change if you’re going to succeed

    ⛔ You’re looking for someone who can chart your course for you

    ⛔ You have things you need to keep secret, even from a private coach

    ⛔ You’re working with a therapist or counselor on a similar or overlapping issue, or you’re looking for healing or recovery

    Here’s what people are saying…


    I noticed a higher level of confidence and a greater level of engagement from my staff member attending Northway Insights coaching. It was definitely a worthwhile investment in my team member with measurable ROI.

    — Jerry D., Chief Technology Officer


    Great self awareness created from open ended conversations. It is a great way to know your strengths and weaknesses. The sessions add value to your personal insight and perception to your surroundings.

    — Hassan K., Senior Software Engineer


    I so appreciate your powerful questions that led me to see where I was stuck.… I just needed someone to pull me out of the fog so I could see the path in front of me!

    You did that masterfully!

    — Jeff K.


    I started working with Steve, and I was unaware of all that he did.  I knew he was a coach, but I didn’t realize the profound effect he would have.

    In a few short months, Steve was unlocking my mind asking some powerful questions, and navigating the turbulent tides in my head.

    He helped me overcome my fear of finding out.
    He helped me realize that I am great at what I do.
    He helped me get out of my head, and get into action.

    I can’t thank Steve enough, and I would highly recommend him for anyone trying to start their own business, or get further ahead in their career.

    — Michael C., DevOps Author & Wellness Coach
