Cindy Gordon is the founder of Business Rescue Coaching a boutique coaching company that provides a unique leadership experience to executives who are overwhelmed by the challenges that arise from the growth of their organization.
As a Canadian CPA, Cindy spent over 20 years working with leaders and business owners to build their organization’s financial wealth through “traditional” means – increase revenues, reduce expenditures and taking calculated risks. After receiving her coaching certification from the Coaches Training Institute in 2007, she found that there were so many additional nuances to “success”. This helped her create more dynamic and effective programs to empower clients to achieve meaningful change that creates their desired outcomes more rapidly and with less resistance. Now Cindy is hired by companies whose executives and/or owners want to build their leadership skills to access the best potential of their team and exponentially grow the financial success of their business or division.
In 2013, Cindy began hosting and facilitating Executive Peer Group. Groups with just men, both men and women and just women had different dynamics and outcomes. What surprised Cindy was that the all women groups achieved significantly higher outcomes for the participants than the others. This helped her to see that when women are safe to lead authentically, their feminine leadership style can move mountains. Working with ATHENA Valley of the Sun, Cindy brings the ATHENA Leadership Model which offers 8 principles that reflect how women intuitively lead to women in business. Empowering women to lead authentically will not only transform their life but will transform society as we know it.
