Executive Coaching

I've been an executive coach for more than a decade.

In that time I’ve logged more than 3,000 hours of one-to-one coaching. I’m good at it – and the fact that most of my clients stay with me beyond the terms of our original agreement supports my point of view.

The type of coaching I do is typically referred to as “Leadership Coaching” or “Behavioral Coaching.” Don’t be bothered by the term behavioral. I’m not a therapist, and as noted in my bio I was a marketing major at a party school. I took just one psych course in an auditorium filled with 300 sleepy undergraduates and I didn’t get a very good grade. My coaching sessions aren’t therapy.

Most executive coaches are not psychology majors; we come to our profession with a broad range of experience and a narrow range of skills. We learn by doing and our personal journeys have proven to be more valuable than training or certifications. My mission is simple: to provoke positive, long-term change in how my clients lead themselves and others. (Hint: it’s about doing and being.) I tell my coaching clients that I’m there to:

  • Hold up a mirror so they can see what others see that they’re missing.
  • Motivate change.
  • Hold them accountable to follow through on the commitments they make in our one-to-one coaching sessions.
