Over the past 30 years, executive coaches have gone from rare to common. Most people assume that being given the chance to work with a coach is a positive thing, and so we seldom find ourselves being asked to explain the benefits of executive coaching. People generally come to us already knowing that they want to engage a coach, and having a fairly clear idea of what they expect from the relationship. So when a potential client asked recently how they would benefit from working with an executive coach, it was a good opportunity for me to reflect on the positive outcomes of coaching. And it made me realize that other people might also have this question but be hesitant to ask, since coaching has become such an accepted — even expected — practice amongst individuals wanting to achieve their very best.
WHY? Because we all lack one or more of these areas:
1) See blind spots
2) Overcome procrastination.
4) Purpose-driven goals
5) Proven strategies
6) Increased productivity
7) Clarity on your values
8) Erase limiting beliefs
9) Skills development
10) Facing the cold, hard truth
"I worked with Rick extensively this year on professional development and executive coaching. As a team leader and manager navigating the unfamiliar terrain of responding to the COVID pandemic, Rick was a great asset. He helped me to develop the tools, practices, and habits of leadership that helped my team and I to respond to these unique business challenges, identify hidden opportunities, and build strength in areas of weakness. Rick has a great attitude, a depth of knowledge in the field, and a passion for developing great leaders"

TESTIMONIAL - May 2021
"As a new sales leader, I was looking for someone to help me standardize our sales process and lay the foundation for enhancing the skill of the entire sales team. Rick’s program included a comprehensive assessment of each sales rep so I could better understand the strengths and development needs of the team I inherited. The assessments immediately enhanced the self-awareness of the individuals as well my own ability to coach them where they needed it. Rick helped define and fine-tune the stages of our sales cycle and provided tools that we were able to implement directly into our CRM. The development sessions where my team needed the most help were very well prepared and delivered, and it has helped jump-start our ongoing development in selling skills. Rick’s program delivered what it promised and I have no doubt we will quickly realize the return on investment. "
