The Missing Coach . .

Managers are coaching less today than ever before because of the new pressures and budget cuts.  That's going to catch up with us in the future. Learn more about how we can deal with this through a new program - The Coaching Imperative

The Bottom Line . . . . according to Jack Welch

In a recent Business Week article Jack  said,  "Executive Coaching generally works. The value of course depends on the quality of the coach.  This is a field where there is no specific training and certainly no formal accreditation. And there are some charlatans out there who simply tell you what you want to hear or don't have much feel for leadership, having never done it themselves." He further adds the "Good executive coaches can provide a truly important service. They can look you in the eye and tell you what no one else will, especially if you're the boss."


“The development of expertise requires coaches who are capable of giving constructive, even painful, feedback.”

Pay for Results - Not Hours

Our unique pay-for-performance coaching process assures you will achieve your goals or you don't pay. Period.

My role is to make sure that you get results. If you don't, then I don't get paid. Although it's a risk for us, we usually get better results than our clients ask for.

We know how to develop leaders, having trained, coached, and worked with hundreds of executives and emerging leaders in Executive Education programs around the world.

We start by getting agreement between our coaching clients, their manager, and stakeholders on behaviors that will make the greatest and most positive impact.

After six months with the client, stakeholders re-assess leadership effectiveness and the observable changes of the client.

After stakeholders validate the change, only then will we bill you for our coaching services.

We may continue to work with the leader for an additional six months to help take the leader to the next level and to work on additional behavioral issues.

For a detailed explanation:

I would encourage you to take our free coaching assessment, and discuss executive coaching with you.
