Values. Innovation. Commitment. Accountability. Success.

Featured Webinar - General Counsel Panel: Connect with the decision-makers

Work should be fun! I want everyone to love the work that they do, be fulfilled, and share their value with others. From setting winning habits and business development to strategic vision and team collaboration I want to champion you to do more than you ever thought was possible.  Learn more about coaching. 

“Every famous athlete, every famous performer has somebody who’s a coach, somebody who can watch what they’re doing and say, ‘Is that what you really meant? Did you really do that thing?’ and give them perspective. The one thing people are never good at is seeing themselves how others see them. A coach really, really helps.”

– Eric Schmidt, Google CEO on his “Best Advice” featured on CNN Money

Because people are what matter in business.

Develop good habits, do one thing every day that matters, keep a positive attitude, and you will meet your goals. It sounds simple but it can be really hard. You are probably familiar with this. You set goals, you work hard, but at some point you start to talk yourself out of achieving what you really want because it is hard. Or because you stop believing in yourself.

Do you want it to work this time? Welcome to coaching!

I coach highly-accomplished professionals to help them make a lasting impact during their limited time. Most people I talk to have too much action in their lives and so much more they want to accomplish. I help them identify their focus and what fulfills them, commit to action, and hold them accountable. 

I also work with clients who want their time to mean more for themselves and others. They want to challenge themselves to imagine what else is possible and accomplish their dreams.

Companies are increasingly investing in their people resources – the talent that drives their innovation – to support its culture, create employees who are fulfilled and teams that are engaged, and create space for more effective opportunities. That is where real change and transformation occurs.

How are your future leaders influencing the team that looks up to them? What kind of habits are they developing to put their career on the right track? What are your leaders doing to provide space for members of their groups to grow?

I can help you address these questions and more. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss with you some of your challenges and identify how we can work together to jumpstart your business development efforts and lead your professionals to a place of action.

Create a Client-Centric Culture

Ambitious executives don’t only need to understand what makes others tick, they need to recognize what is going on in their own personalities. Coaching strengthens emotional intelligence and gives leaders the ability to recognize how other people are feeling in a business context and to react appropriately for mutual benefit.
