We’ll start by identifying your goals and developing an understanding the current “state-of-the-state” of your organization. This is done through 1:1 executive interviews, focus group meetings, and surveys. Some areas you may need more support and clarity than others, which is why you will receive a truly customized program for you and your team, addressing any of the following specialties:
What is Coaching?
Just like a fitness routine, we may know what we’re supposed to do but we still struggle to follow through. Sometimes you need more support and accountability when trying to achieve the next level of personal or professional development. When you hire a Fire Up & Lead coach you can expect to become laser focused on your goals and how to become a more influential leader.
Fireside Chats is a membership program offering networking, training, and business mastermind sessions.
Time spent building relationships through business networking is exponentially valuable. You’ll likely find the next customer, collaborator, or business referral partner if you just put yourself out there! We meet once a month for 90-minutes of open networking with chat members invited to highlight their business at each event.
Running a successful business requires constant learning and innovation. Yet so often we’re pulled into the quicksand of day-to-day operations and we can suddenly look up and it’s been weeks, if not months, since we’ve tended to improve our business acumen.
Fireside Chats offers additional support with monthly, virtual training sessions covering a spectrum of business development strategies and leadership topics. There is so much value offered in these concentrated training sessions. Applications are open for members to present.
Step away from the day-to-day hustle and meet up with other business owners who are riding the same roller coaster you are! Our small group mastermind session offers an opportunity to leave ego at the door and creates a creative space to share and lean on your fellow members. Whether it’s the next big decision you’re facing or not quite knowing how to solve a recurring issue, your mastermind group will become your informal board of directors providing needed perspective and support. You’ll leave each session with a refreshed confidence and a clear focus on what actions you need to take next.

Meet Stephanie Yang, Fire Up & Lead’s resident calendar wrangler and master of all tasks!
Stephanie is passionate about the fact she gets to help build great teams and have a bigger impact in her community.
As a manager for a couple of family medicine clinics we desire to create the best environment for our patients and our employees. My life has been impacted in a positive way with her abilities and our employees feel it as well. Her understanding of how people work, her ability to help me identify different types of employees, and the tools and resources she offers me are beyond measure. Stacy is well rounded and full of valuable information to make whoever she works with motivated to be better than they were yesterday. She has helped me create systems that keep me on task, supports me in areas I need to improve, and stays upbeat and motivated to continue to make a difference for all of us.
Stacy has an uncanny ability to identify and elicit each team member’s strengths and allow them the opportunity to use then in a collective goal while reinforcing the individual’s effort, creating an environment in which people are made to feel valuable but also accountable for their own contributions. Our group has become much more collaborative and cohesive, yet has been able to individually identify and hone in on areas in which we would like to grow and improve. Stacy also has a wonderful manner of helping to shape a work place culture that is both supportive and rewarding but is based on the basic paradigms of effort, application of ones’ resources and a willingness to serve as part of a team. The symbiosis with which we now function is absolutely due to Stacy’s keen ability to observe, analyze and report back her findings in a way that is both absolutely accurate but sensitively shared such that we all feel a sense of ownership for our individual and collective work product.
As a small business owner of a busy and ever expanding medical billing company, I have looked to Stacy for guidance with management of all the aspects of my business. From staffing issues to employee time management, she has been extremely knowledgeable and helpful with tips, techniques, and advise. Even though we only get to meet up virtually a few times a month, Stacy has always been a phone call away for any support I need. I truly believe that she has improved my business, employee productivity and time management for myself and my staff. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for guidance and support with leadership, staffing, coaching, etc for their business.
Fireside Chats Masterminds is a great sounding board and is a positive group whenever we meet. When I face challenges, I know there is an hour where I can let my guard down and not worry. The energy I take from each mastermind meeting helps me get things checked off my list.
