How Do I Know If I Need a  Coach?

What is Business or Executive Coaching?

Business Coaching puts a heavy emphasis on the overall operation of the organization and how effectively it’s working. Our focus is on growing your business. While Executive or Leadership Coaching provides a structured development approach to increase leadership capacity by improving performance, communication, and overall skills.

How Do I Know if Coaching Is Right for Me?

Do you want to grow your organization or leadership capacity? Do you feel like you are “spinning your wheels”? Are you open to an honest and open dialog with a neutral third party? If you answer “yes” to these, then it is likely a fit for you.

Do You Offer Ongoing Coaching Services?

Yes! Most of my clients work with me on a monthly retainer. No, long-term contract is required.  Many coaches require a six or 12 month payment up-front. I earn my fees with you every month. Most of my clients work with me for over 12 months.

Do You Only Work With Established Companies?

For the most part, yes. But I do offer some services to startups, and often can connect them with the resources they need.

What guarantees do you offer?

Here’s my promise to you. If you put in the work, I guarantee that it will pay dividends. We will agree upon what the expectations are, and re-evaluate as we go along. But, at any time, if you feel that it is not working, we can stop and I’ll refund the last month’s fee as a way of demonstrating my belief in what we do.
