Executive and Leadership Coaching

Who doesn’t need a coach?

Like professional athletes, business leaders gain valuable insights about themselves from coaching. 

Coaches see potential, develop it, and hold you accountable to your commitments.  

Coaches call you out on things that could be getting in your way and help you see your way forward.

Coaches help you become more self-aware. A good executive coach will tell you things your team will not tell you.

My executive and leadership coaching clients look like this:

C-SUITE PROFESSIONALS  – CEO’s, directors, and senior vice presidents, who want an objective person to give them straight-forward insight and feedback. Senior leaders who want to continue to grow and change in dynamic work environments. Executives who want someone to speak truth to power.

DIRECTORS  who want to prepare for a VP position.

NEW MANAGERS AND SUPERVISORS with promise and potential in their respective fields who want to focus on developing a positive and influential brand of leadership. A up and coming person who wants to make a positive impact by building a high performance team.
