My Mission As A Coach Is To Help You

See Yourself More Clearly

Research has shown that most of us don't see ourselves very clearly and that it matters. Accurate self-awareness in leaders is highly correlated with organizational effectiveness and profitability. Employees prefer to follow leaders who see themselves clearly.

Leverage Your Existing Strengths

Having an effective and supportive coach can also help you see and leverage strengths that you already have but that you may be underestimating or underutilizing. We will help you see the uniqueness and value of your strengths and to learn how to lean into them in order to use them more effectively for the benefit of the team and the organization.

See Others More Clearly

Skilled coaches work to make their coaching clients independent - we help you apply the same mental skills you learned for seeing yourself more clearly so that you can become more accurate in your assessment of others.

Learn New Ways to Respond

We all have a set of capabilities and responses that may serve us well as mid-level employees but that won’t help us as more senior leaders.

Build More Productive Relationships

Leaders can dramatically limit their effectiveness by only being willing or able to build strong relationships with certain kinds of people/ And all too often, that means people like themselves - in background, race, gender, beliefs, or work style.

Achieve What You Want

This is the bottom line for an effective coaching engagement. The right coach can help you get clearer about your goals and dreams and about what you’re capable of doing to achieve them. We can also be a powerfully useful support system on your journey. Someone who know you very well and wants the best for you and can teach you new ways of thinking and operating, new skills that will allow you to better reach your goals and create the career you want.

How To Evaluate An Executive Coach

Corporate Experience

An EC’s real world experience at this level is critical to understand the pressures, political nuances and complexities to be successful. The right coach must have real understanding of what it is like to work in a corporate environment at the highest levels.

Chemistry

This is really important. The executive and coach relationship is based on TRUST. Deep trust is built over time and the executive must feel comfortable “opening up” to their coach.

Confidentiality

This is a reinforcement of the need for absolute trust. Coach MUST agree to follow the ICF (International Coaching Federation) Code of Ethics.

Courageous and Supportive

A great executive coach will engage in absolute transparency and be prepared to both challenge and support the executive as needed. It is all about the executive.
