I bring a holistic approach to coaching, by truly appreciating the importance of all the people involved in making an executive and the organization successful. I believe that the heart of coaching involves awareness and responsibility. I also believe in the power of people and practice coaching that delivers a high-performance individual along with an organization that reaches well beyond the traditional norms of the day.
As a long-term CEO, I bring things to the table that others simply don't. I understand what executives go through every day and what tends to keep them up at night. I appreciate the value of leadership and culture in today's business environment while recognizing the importance of strong growth and profits. Most of my clients achieve high rates of growth along with parallel profits.
