Sandra Dillon: Leadership Expert and Coach
As a professional coach and leadership expert, I have a passion for helping my clients understand their leadership style and strengthen their leadership impact. When leaders improve, everyone in the organization wins.
As leaders grow in their leadership capacity and ability, they become more energized, have higher sustainable performance, and are able to coach others to greater levels of leadership. I work with individuals in one-on-one settings, facilitate small groups, and design and lead workshops focused on the clients’ needs for their business.
For all people to experience the benefits of an empowering coaching relationship that allows them to increase their leadership abilities, resulting in greater influence, stronger relationships, and goal attainment
Coach clients to achieve their goals by understanding their worldview, breaking through limiting beliefs, energizing, and equipping them to lead themselves and others for success
- Leaders influence people and outcomes
- Every person is a leader
- Leaders grow their leadership capacity and abilities
Although my path was the road less traveled, the journey has finally brought me to my final destination−leadership coaching. Coaching relationships are co-constructed between the coach and client. For the client to achieve their goals and get the results they want, the relationship must be built on trust and competence. I share parts of my personal story so you can learn more about me, who you may choose as your coach.
Having grown up in a lower-income household, I was blessed with the opportunity to attend Lafayette College in Easton, PA, through grants, academic scholarships, and student loans. Because I loved and excelled at math and chemistry in high school, I decided pursue a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. During my early years working as an operations engineer at Exxon Chemical, I found a greater passion for marketing and business and returned to graduate school on a part-time basis. With my MBA in hand my career track took me through various functional positions up the corporate ladder, until I found myself as Vice President running a $400 million per year specialty chemical business at TPC Group.
Having achieved my individual career goals and standing in the moment asking, “What’s next,” I realized it was those times, when I was leading and coaching others, that brought me the greatest fulfillment. People were always seeking me out for mentoring, advice, and coaching. In 2014, I returned to graduate school to pursue my second masters: M.A. in Human Services Counseling, Life Coaching.
Based on my training and business experience, I now coach leaders and their teams how to increase their leadership influence and achieve their goals. Leadership is a universal competency; therefore, my clients realize tangible benefits not only on the job but in stronger relationships and greater influence in their family and community relationships.
As a coach, my desire is to give you the space and opportunity to be intentional in moving forward in your personal journey, to expand your leadership, achieve your dreams, have fulfilling relationships, and live out your purpose. If our paths do not cross in a coaching relationship, I hope the words written on this site will encourage you, challenge your thinking and limiting beliefs, and inspire you to take action.
