Become an Expert Executive Coach

The Craft of Coaching

The tradition of the master craftsman has guided the design of our coaching and coach training.

An artistic blend of practical knowledge, experience, and evidence-based psychological methods are used to train experienced executives. This training will make them the most effective coaches for the next generation of leaders, and will rapidly bring them up to speed and perform at the highest levels in their industry or business.

We know, and research proves, that expertise and experience are essential for truly impactful coaching and objective improvement. Your experience has great value to the next generation - and it is captured and leveraged in our program, allowing far more empathetic, rapid, and potent coaching to the client.

Because effective and authentic coaching happens only when there is something at stake, a requisite of the program is that you take on an important personal development goal. By doing so, you will be using “in the game” thinking and developing in an intentional way. This level of personal accountability will help you grow and understand what it takes to produce extraordinary results.

Being a part of this program puts you in a high-performance, supportive environment of like-minded executives, who are also driven to move to the next level at any age.

This program is not about secret sauce and magical, transformational short-cuts, but the training and practice needed to deliver the kind of coaching you and your clients deserve, and is required to make objective progress.

We reach out and partner with companies of all sizes to help them identify and train their high-potential executives.
