M. Nora Bouchard is an accomplished executive coach with 25 years experience developing successful and inspiring leaders. For the last 15 years, she has coached both experienced IT executives determined to enhance their existing capabilities, as well as eager-to-learn emerging leaders.
Nora encourages clients to shift perspective; to see options for action that have been hiding in plain sight. Rather than targeting what’s wrong, Nora capitalizes on the strengths and innate motivations of the executive. She encourages her clients to challenge the norm, the expected;
and to tap into the unconventional wisdom of their own life experiences.
Adept at meeting and training facilitation, Nora holds a MA in Instructional Design. Having designed, developed and delivered training with a global consulting firm, Nora creates powerful, interactive and customized learning opportunities.
Nora is author of the well-reviewed Mayday! Asking for Help in Times of Need, Berrett-Koehler, 2007.
