The Good News?

You have natural authority and powerful authentic leadership that can evolve with your life's experiences.

Celebrating this can unlock a world of possibilities: alleviating chronic stress; improving quality of life and relationships; opening the door for new opportunities, big successes, and dream jobs; and more.

The Bad News?

Most of us do not have access to the continuous personal skill building or learning environments that will help us realize our full abilities and create our next big success. We're smart and resourceful, though, so we make a go of it, like this:
  • You can learn from your current environment - such as your colleagues, organizational executives and managers, or community leaders. Many of us have learned some good - and some really bad - habits doing it this way.
  • You can learn from books, podcasts, and social media. They can give you a lot of advice and inspiration! What they miss - crucially - is having the expert by your side to help you find your blind spots and apply the best practices in those critical moments when you really need them. In whatever aspect of your work and life that your leadership skills need attention the most, we can almost guarantee you can't go there on your own.
  • You can learn from another leadership program and get a certificate or something. We love leadership programs, so we say go for it! Finding what resonates with you is part of your ongoing development. When you are stuck again later, come back and find us. Because we dive in to the deeper aspects of applied leadership and sometimes confusing humanbeingness (is that a word?) that most leadership programs don't touch.

SOMETIMES WE GET STUCK
Does this sound like you?
A passionate professional, expert, manager, or executive. A high-achiever who is always looking for new ways to solve problems, overcome obstacles, and make a difference. Someone who is ready to learn and use cutting-edge knowledge and approaches for different results in your career or workplace.
If you set goals for yourself (annual performance goals, New Year's resolutions, etc.), do they excite and scare you? Do you wonder how you'll ever pull that off? No? Still setting goals based on someone else's definition of what your next step is? Or what's trending on the internet?
unclear "goals"
feeling like a "cog"

Do you wake up every day knowing that your unique brilliance is being put to the best and highest use? No? Is it more like your career has been reduced to a job title or a series of boxes on an org chart?
Do you say YES when I ask: are you in tune with your purpose, AND are you fully expressing it? No? Feel like you've lost track of your purpose, or put some of it on the back burner?
lost purpose
It doesn't have to be this way.
you are not alone

You're not alone. Every professional we've worked with has hit the skids sooner or later. Whether it's 10 years in or 40 years in -- at some point the most accomplished experts and leaders realize they've lost track of themselves inside their own success.
It's confusing. After all, you've done everything you were told: everything that would help you advance to the next opportunity. The good news is that there's nothing wrong with you or your success. It's time to pause and celebrate all you've done. But if it doesn't feel good anymore, it's also time for a new set of rules.
set new rules
Are you ready... to write your own rules and take charge in a new way?

Who joins the Mosley Institute for Leadership?

Most of the Mosley Institute members first come to us because they are caring and hardworking professionals, managers, or executives who are looking at some kind of big transition and would like to bring in outside perspective and support.

Here are some real-life examples:
  • An industry icon nearing retirement who wants to frame her late career legacy and find the healthiest mindset and choices for the last and most influential years of her career.
  • A technical operations & maintenance expert who wants to bust out of his rut... reframes his job search and lands his dream job with a significantly better compensation package - within 8 weeks of joining our programs.
  • A senior manager working in the public sector who struggles with "people pleasing" and often overworks because she cares so much... practices new and compassionate approaches to her management style that allow her to find balance.
  • A top manager at a well-respected non-profit grapples with the work environment under the current Board and Executive Director... begins a strategic search and lands a new job in the private sector that provides the healthy team dynamics she is looking for - within a few months of starting our programs.
  • Mid-level project managers who strive for excellence and how to navigate a successful career path -- often in the face of cultural, racial, gender, age, neurodiversity, or other bias.
  • Senior managers moving into executive and board-level positions.
  • Founders and owners (including "solopreneurs") who need the immediate mindset shifts necessary to handle the unique stresses of owning a business or sustaining a non-profit as well as strategic and practical business support.

Our clients vary in age, gender identity, racial and ethic heritage, and professional backgrounds and positions. They also have many different neurodivergent* strengths and styles (cognitive specialties) including those neurotypes who favor linear, analytical, technical, and intellectual problem solving; those with an attunement to empathy and relationships; those who experience dynamic attention (may include exploratory and interest-driven motivation, hyperfocus, and/or high sensitivity); and other intelligently adaptive ways of engaging with the world.

*See FAQs below for additional information.

We begin with targeted coaching methods to find your blind spots, build your skills, and find more clarity and ease.

Our approaches may focus on your next move from a practical business/career standpoint... or they may touch on somatic and neurosensory awareness to shift old stress patterns and bring your full intelligence and creativity back online. Probably both! We're known for effectively guiding clients to resolve deeper root causes that are keeping them stuck. These crucial aspects are what most coaching programs miss.
First we focus on strengthening essential executive leadership skills that include:
﹅ Executive "presence." What is it really, and how do you cultivate it?
﹅ Transformation and success roadmapping. Key elements to successfully lead the changes you want to make.
﹅ Integrity. How to know when not to compromise, and the huge impact it makes over the long term.
﹅ Resilience. Leading with ease in a world that requires constant and rapid adaptation.
﹅ Culture. Essential factors to maintain healthy personal boundaries and create a thriving, supportive working environment.
﹅ Relationships. Who should be in your inner circle? What are the most important decisions in selecting your team?

Our members also develop their capacity to provide visionary and compassionate leadership in larger groups, organizations, and society. Here are some of our common topics:
  • communication & connection in groups
  • the importance of shared purpose
  • why shared leadership is a crucial concept
  • innovation culture & management
  • future focused scenario-based planning
  • strategic decisions
  • psychological safety in organizations
  • equity and belonging
  • conflict resolution and peacemaking
  • how to handle entrenched beliefs and polarizing topics
  • easing collective overwhelm and complex stress
  • working skillfully with uncertainty
  • the basics of creating healing organizations

The best part about our work in executive and business coaching is working with amazing professionals who are interested to further hone their natural authority and influence skills at every opportunity. We'd love to have you join us.

Frequently Asked Questions:

I've never hired an executive or career coach. What's it like?

Here's what to expect for your private executive coaching:
﹅ We provide reminders when it's time to schedule a call according to your membership type.
﹅ You schedule the call at your convenience with an easy online calendar system. You can add the appointment directly to your online calendar and change it later if needed. You can schedule ahead up to 3 months.
﹅ Calls are typically scheduled for 45 minutes each on Zoom video or audio. (These can vary in length depending on schedules and interest.)
﹅ On the call, we use proven, real-world techniques to evaluate your habitual reactions, determine your next best step, and then master the desired responses and skills. (We draw from the best research and practice of neuroscience and somatic psychology, relationship dynamics, influence, innovation, and more.)
﹅ You can follow up by email and with the community in between one-on-one calls as needed.

Can you help me find a new job/position?

Yes. We have helped mid-level to executive professionals make the decision to develop wonderful new opportunities. Making a career shift within an organization (promotion or new assignments) or to a new organization are possible outcomes of the kind of work we do with clients.

I am struggling with aspects of my senior/executive/board level role. Can you help me with strategy and how to better influence and lead my organization at this level?

Yes. We work concurrently with your relational skills and your business acumen. Some sessions might be spent evaluating the "pressure-cooker" dynamics of leadership at this level, others might be spent developing strategic and tactical moves to address critical needs for your organization. Whatever it is, we hone your abilities through the real situations you are facing.

I am thinking about going out on my own [or launching a non-profit]. Can you help?

Yes. We have supported clients to successfully launch new private and non-profit ventures. We do not provide business services per se, but we do provide a wealth of experience, connections, advice on pitfalls and milestones to look out for, roadmapping, business coaching, essential entrepreneurial "mindset" support, and more.

Leadership programs usually have start and end points with defined activities. What's the benefit of an open-ended membership program? How will I know if it's worth it?

Great question! We've tried many formats and found that this is the most flexible, powerful, and puts you in the position to decide. That might sound overwhelming at first, but tuning in to your leadership growth needs is what we are here to do!

Some program members have worked with us for short sprints to get the boost they need, some have worked with us for years. It's not unusual for a member to pause for a while and come back again months or years later! We have no preference and no interest in selling you on something that isn't going to work. We tune into what is best for you.

What are the community events? Can you provide additional information?

Recent topics offered for group events have included:
  • Networking Session: Career Development in Sustainability
  • Open call (like extra "office hours" or "happy hour" style - flexible topics and format)
  • Special Event: Leadership/Gender for gender nonbinary members of the Institute
  • OWN IT! Moving into executive & entrepreneurial roles
  • Mastermind Coaching Call 
  • Leadership, Psychological Safety, and Influence
  • The Power of Story
  • Attachment Styles At Work 
  • Stress Relief!
  • Celebrations

Topics are selected based on group interest. Sometimes we pick up on topics or themes that are coming up in the one-on-one coaching calls and bring them into a group call.

The schedule is also influenced by the members. We currently schedule approximately one event per month. We can also schedule more than one in a month or we can combine months depending on interest.

I saw that you are trained in Somatic Experiencing®️. Can I get an SE™️ session?

Yes! Erin (Pink) Mosley is a member of Somatic Experiencing International. All of her coaching and teaching is infused with her expertise in many related somatic approaches, neuroscience, and contemplative traditions. She will attune to your needs and requests to find what is right for you. (Please note she is not licensed as a therapist or health professional. She will happily connect you with excellent colleagues should you want to explore an aspect of therapy or coaching that's not within her scope of practice.)

Can you share more about your experience with neurodiversity?

Yes!

First, you'll note that we don't use terminology from the DSM-5 here on this site. That's mostly because we don't frame the purpose and outcomes of our coaching and leadership development work in terms of pathology, disorders, or disabilities. We do take a keen interest in the rapidly evolving understanding of neurotypes from all angles: genetic, anatomical, developmental, adaptive, etc. and we bring that into all of our work with clients.

Second, we have worked very successfully in a professional coaching capacity with several adaptive and hereditary types. Sometimes clients have a diagnosis and are working with specialists; sometimes not. Just remember that we do not provide medical care or social work; we do not take insurance; and we do limit our programs to those within a certain range of resilience. We are happy to suggest different or additional resources as needed! And if it helps to hear a little more about our work in neurodiversity in DSM terms (e.g., "How do you work with [ASD/ADHD/Anxiety/BPD/...]?" is a great question!), please contact us and we will be happy to share more.

Third, our knowledge of neurodiversity is also one of many ways we help to reframe situations with our clients. For example, the emotional charge a client is experiencing around an interpersonal challenge or conflict can sometimes be reduced if we add in a more nuanced view of how different learning, processing, and communication styles might be contributing to misunderstandings.


Executive Coaching is expensive. How can I afford to join the Mosley Institute?

We offer four different memberships so that you can choose the best way to invest in executive coaching. The four memberships are based on how many one-on-one calls you would like with Erin (Pink) Mosley and on what kind of schedule.

Mosley Institute library resources and group events are available to all members regardless of which membership you choose.

The memberships have been created based on the results we see from clients. Once you make the commitment, we'll begin immediately to work on your desired outcomes: financial, quality of life, societal impact, or whatever else brings you here.

Some clients partner with their company to support the investment in executive-style coaching. We are happy to discuss these options further and help make it happen!
