Transforming The Way We Relate: Making Strong Leaders Even Stronger

Organizational Communication Coach, Candor Strategist, Keynote Speaker, and Author Transforming the Way We Relate

CEO and Founder of Pathwise Partners, Nancy Eberhardt gives leaders and managers the tools they need to communicate more effectively, transform organizational culture, and focus on what’s truly important. A woman who believes that straight talk has the power to turn any relationship around—business or personal—Nancy is the one you want on your team to help you on your path toward achieving your vision.

Throughout her career, Nancy has taught the principle of candor to help leaders and organizations transform their communication and accelerate their growth. She has supported CEOs and Boards of Directors to develop leaders and increase employee morale, enthusiasm and performance. She regularly facilitates the growth of honest, open communication in many businesses and nonprofits. In other words, Nancy has made strong, successful leaders even stronger and more successful.

What makes Nancy different from other strategists and coaches is her powerful combination of credentials and real-world experience. While she achieved coaching certifications from both the renowned Gazelles program and Georgetown University, she’s also been in the trenches, serving as a regional bank president (with a $1 billion portfolio, 50 locations and 400 employees) and reinventing a major real estate development firm during a time of owner transition.

Plus, this coach, strategist, author and speaker is just as committed to serving her community. Nancy has held positions on the boards of directors of a community bank, a social venture corporation, a stadium authority, the only National Park for the performing arts, and major nonprofit agencies.

When working with leaders, Nancy leverages communications in ways that inspire and engage them. She also creates an environment of the utmost respect, creating a comfort level for her clients and opening the door to endless possibilities.
