Announcement Practice Change

My Executive Coaching practice has evolved to teaching executives how to coach their staff and teams.

The process involves coaching techniques so executives become acutely aware of how their messages are received, communicating by picking up of non-verbal queues such as facial expressions and body language.

We focus on real situations where coaching is a viable solution. For example, one of my clients is stuck on how to eliminate any late shipment to Fortune 50 companies. He is learning effective ways to effectively communicate with his COO...and in turn how that person can get results from his team.

Best Coaching Candidates

Who are the best candidates for Executive Coaching?

The people who gain the most - personally and with high impact on business outcomes.

Leaders who feel they are not meeting their own expectations rank #1 for my
clients over the past 10 years, 

They have the desire to reflect on where they currently are and where they want to get to. The executive, with the help of the coach, builds a road map to meet this desire.  Note that coaches do not build that road map - the executive does! That way he owns his own destiny.

They know what hurdles they will need to jump over, what motivates them and uses the coach to be a sounding board. 

Take Bob, a second generation CEO of a mid-cap business. One day a key staff member told him that he believes Bob does not think he is worthy of his position.  Bob, "how did I miss this after spending so much time connecting with my staff?"

That was the trigger for him to seek help.  He was not satisfied having a culture that hides unhappy people who he can learn from.
