Ep. 3 Seizing Your Golden Hour with Emily Golden

The New Golden Rule, the value of authentic relationships, and the universal nature of imperfections.


It is so easy to wear a mask, especially in the workplace. But when we do not express who we really are, are not self-aware, and do not communicate our needs, can we have authentic relationships or truly collaborate with others?

In her Weekly Coaching Tip, Elena inspires us with three ways that collaboration maximizes our potential. In her interview, Elena speaks with Emily Golden, a courageous woman, successful entrepreneur, and incredible executive coach. Emily spent almost 20 years in corporate America until she decided to leave and help other high-performing professionals break free from perfectionism and people-pleasing. They discuss Emily’s recent book, The New Golden Rule, the value of authentic relationships, and the universal nature of imperfections.

Recognized as an expert in emotional intelligence in the workplace, Emily Golden incorporates her years of corporate human resources experience into her high-performance coaching practice.

She is familiar with the challenges executives face, including time management, overwork, and the potential for burnout. Her clients emerge re-energized, equipped with the tools that help them create a balanced and meaningful life inside and outside of work.

No stranger to the delicate balance of work-life juggling, Emily was a top performer when a troubling diagnosis struck her family. Her daughter was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome in 2010. Despite the emotional toll, Emily’s perfectionism kicked in and she was determined to be the best employee, mother, and partner for her husband.

The trouble was, at home, she was thinking about work. At work, she was thinking about what she needed to do for her kids at home. When her son was also diagnosed with the same syndrome, Emily shifted her focus to finding a workable balance that honored her capacity in her work and personal life.

She realized that her talents for seeing both the blind spots and the skills in others in her corporate position translated seamlessly into coaching high performers looking to advance professionally while avoiding the trap of burnout or golden handcuffs.

Combining her leadership and work in human resources for over 17 years, 3,000+ hours of hands-on coaching, and 500+ hours of coach training, Emily has created a powerful coaching method not typically offered in corporate America.

As a master certified coach, Emily combines the best of diagnostic methods including the EQi 2.0 with her step-by-step guidance and powerful support, so you can make fulfilling career choices to support the life you deserve.

If you’re ready to show up more powerfully in every aspect of your life, to get on and stay on the path of your choosing, then it’s time to work with Emily.
