CATHERINE IOCONA, MBA, CPHIMS, CPC, ELI-MP, CDLS
As the founder of LLV Coaching and Consulting, I’m living my vision of supporting leaders in their mission to achieve performance excellence. I’ve had a 38 year career as a leader in the healthcare industry supporting the mission, vision and values. I’ve personally experienced the daily challenges leaders face in the ever-changing, demanding corporate world.
My coaching journey began when I attended a leadership training program sponsored by my organization. A spark was ignited as I explored my own leadership values and assessed how I was (or was not) living them on a day to day basis. The flame was fanned by continuing as a facilitator in the program while working with an executive coach. With the support and encouragement of my family and colleagues, I became a certified professional coach and continue my personal and professional journey in a new direction. It has changed my life, and given me a clear vision of my purpose to help other leaders achieve performance excellence and be more satisfied with their careers and life!
Now a THIRD RIVER PARTNERS CONSULTANT offering the Leadership Quick Start Program.
I have found Cathy to be both an insightful coach and a highly effective sounding board. You can trust Cathy to give you her utmost attention to ensure that you increase your self awareness and then guide you on your journey to achieve your personal best.
Every great coach has a coach! To be my best, I knew I needed a coach who would be supportive and provide honest observations and feedback. Cathy is just that coach to me. Through her thought-provoking questions, she has challenged me to try on new perspectives while staying true to my values. She was instrumental in helping me manage this major life transition from my corporate life to part-time coach/retiree. Because I had been planning this phase of my life for so long, I thought I was immune to the impacts of this change. With her help, I was able to give myself “permission" to exhale and explore all the opportunities and challenges of this very special time. With Cathy as a coach and accountability partner, I am creating the life I want.
Cathy has a way of really helping her clients feel comfortable engaging in conversations that might otherwise be difficult to have. Cathy continues to show me and all those she graciously looks to help as a coach, what it truly means to be a caring, considerate and kind support person. When you are going through life changes and challenges, what you don't need is to be reminded of what is "wrong" in your life, rather, Cathy helps you discover and uncover all that is RIGHT and how to focus on these blessings. It is to me a truly amazing gift that Cathy possesses. To work with Cathy is to grow and learn all that is inside of you, that you may not have even realized was there. I highly recommend Cathy as coach.
