Executive Career Coaching Program:

Our program can be customized to meet your individual needs or we can provide our off-the-shelf ten-step experience.  We can deliver your program in the following ways:

  • Team coaching.

  • On premise or delivered virtually through our digital platform.

  • Transition/Out Placement is also offered.

  • A combination of the above on an individual or group basis.

Executive Coaching:

 

Executive coaching is not training, instruction, or consulting.  It is a new approach to individual empowerment.  We are facilitators.  We facilitate new insights, confidence, and a greater self-awareness so that YOU can be the Master of your own Destiny.  We empower you to steer your own ship…chart your own course.

 

Coaching is now recognized as the most effective way to increase leadership and management performance.

U.S. Military Special Operations Experience

Since 2003 we have been working with the business community and U.S. Special Operation Forces (SOF) in the field of leadership coaching.  This unique combination of coaching corporate and military peak-performers gives us a perspective that few coaching organizations possess. 

 

As a result, we have become experts in helping individuals within organizations empower themselves in the areas of listening, inquiry, critical thinking, and intellectual exploration which are fundamental to great leadership and individual performance.  

 

This results in real, sustainable results for their organizations as well as a tremendous sense of self-worth and confidence to be an organizational game-changer. We empower the superstars of tomorrow in the boardroom and on the battlefield.

 

We can support and enable these same leaders on their specific career agenda, notably on strategy, performance, teamwork, communications skills, and innovation.

 

Whether you are focused on attaining an individual career goal, success with a team project, or are going through a time of transition, we will give you that confidence and self-awareness needed to get to that next level.

Workshop Structure

Leveraging our lessons learned and coaching experience with military special operations personnel, we use an interactive workshop structure emphasizing:

  • Conversational mapping,

  • Personality assessment testing,

  • Personal vignettes and thought-provoking case studies,

  • Practical hands-on exercises,

  • A continual 360-degree feedback process patterned after a military after action report (AAR) structure.

 

Our workshops are informative, inspiring, and entertaining.  We are interactive and we have fun.  The overall goal is to build your confidence, create self-awareness, and provide you with the tools necessary to super-charge your career and get you to the next level of your organization. 

 

Executive coaching sessions are not classroom teaching or instruction.  They are skilled and targeted individual conversations that enable and challenge you to help yourself, to be yourself, in your career or business, to be all that you can be over the long term.

 

We will also provide you with weekly feedback and progress reports so that you can track your progress and achieve your individual goals.  Our primary objective is to empower you to turn your goals into actions so that YOU can plan, develop, and supercharge your career.
