from where you are to
where you want to be

Executive or “business” coaching focuses on helping individuals go from where they are, to where they want themselves and/or their company to be.

People come to coaching for several reasons


  • they could be “stuck” and can’t think of what else to do in order to move the organization or themselves forward;

  • there may not be anyone at their level that they can have confidential conversations with, or 

  • they believe if they were to change/improve something within themselves, the greater organization or themselves would benefit.

An Executive & Leadership Coach: Produces Results

Whatever the reason, distinct from other forms of training, coaching focuses on a specific way of “learning” for the executive. 


It is believed that “the more an individual is involved in identifying problems, in working out and applying solutions for them and in reviewing results, the more complete and the more long lasting the learning is.


This form of self-improvement tends to bring about learning with a deeper understanding that learning that is taught.


Given the right circumstances, one-on-one interaction with an objective third party, who is not tied to the executives organization or other executive or company influences, can provide a focus that other forms of organizational support cannot.

Why should you hire an Executive Coach?

In today’s demanding business environment (cost pressures leading to flatter organizations, executive managers with more direct reports, “speed to market” as a competitive advantage with time pressure, etc.) executives have limited opportunity to devote time and energy to their own development as leaders.


Most executives struggle to fulfil the responsibilities of their positions and are too busy and too stressed to step back and learn from their experiences or to implement changes to satisfy best management practices or to develop their career.


The reasons for choosing coaching go beyond the need to correct or resolve problem behaviours or poor performance issues.

What is the Coaching Process?

Each coaching engagement begins with a “discovery” session of some sort.


This is the time where the potential client and coach have a conversation to determine and discuss several items which may include:

• What the client is looking for in the coaching relationship

• What the coaching relationship is and isn’t

• The style of the coach and how that resonates with the client

• Rules of engagement and protocol (Coaching is confidential and priority to the client, no one else!)

• The coach’s credentials relative to the client’s needs

• Timing and logistics of the coaching

• How success for coaching will be measured

• Agreement to move forward
