I am an executive coach who works with leaders to help them develop the vision and personal/emotional skills to lead teams of exceptional people to huge positive outcomes for the world. The problem I'm solving with my life is to fundamentally change the shape of corporate and governmental leadership in a more people-centric, values based, and humane way. When our leaders are more self-aware, have better EQ, and hold themselves and their teams to higher standards, we set a global expectation for stronger, more ethical leadership :)
Imagery that resonates most with me personally is the sea, sun, radiance or guidance as a concept.
I focus on two things:
* helping leaders see their own thoughts, feelings, and actions clearly so they can understand that they're producing their own results and change those thoughts and actions to the ones that get them the results they want.
* very tactical recipes, skills, and approaches leaders can implement right now to level up their leadership
I'm a huge fan of communication. I tend not to love images of 'brains' or 'thoughts', but you're welcome to try. I'm pretty sure I prefer illustration to photos but I'm again open to ideas.
It's very important that any stock images include women, and preferably diverse ethnicities. My home industry (tech) has huge issues with lack of diversity and of representation, and it's an important part of who I am and my brand image to be inclusive and diverse.
Some other branding and my thoughts on them:
* https://unfuckyourbrain.com/ - My favorite branding, and close to what I'm likely looking for. She focuses on individuals, women, and confidence. I focus on professionals of any gender in leadership in the workplace. But I like the layouts and feel here.
* https://thelifecoachschool.com/ - I like the ways this website is set up, though not quite as much as the one just above. I like her logo, though it just a wordmark and I know I do want an image/illustration I can use (whether or not there's also a just-words logo).
* https://www.thedoersway.net/ - Her logo is almost all words and way too many words. Also, it's a little soft/non-professional for me. But personally I love the concept of how she uses this color combo :) (I'm just more dark teal/dark blue than light blue/bright pink.)

Potential follow-on work: I'll definitely be looking for a favicon and will almost certainly be looking for a worksheet design and a workbook/downloadable booklet design.
