Executive Coaching

In the executive fast lane the stakes are high – both for you and the people who depend on you. You need outstanding communication skills, self-awareness, emotional management and the ability to build relationships while still saying “no”. The catch is that we all have our own blind spots and most executives never get feedback they can completely trust.

We specialize in onboarding coaching for successful executive transitions.

With a fast and furious life and a new job as House Majority Leader, there were plenty of issues – both bigger and day-to-day – I struggled with. After coaching, I feel less stressed out and more in control. It has made me generally more conscious of what I do with my time, what others demand from me and the quality of life I want.

I was having trouble communicating with certain high-ranking individuals within the company. As a result of coaching I am much better at communicating. People have even complimented me on my improvement. I’ve also become more tolerant of other management styles and am more accepting of things I can’t control. I now feel more relaxed and comfortable in the workplace. I have more energy and am able to make better choices. I’d say it was a success.
