Coaching Methods



Executive Coach - Leadership Trainer

Our coaching sessions will be focused on business topics. That being said, generally speaking, a substantial part of leadership involves human interaction – either with another person or with oneself. In addition to bringing my business acumen into play, the foundation for my leadership coaching is also built on the human side of business – the social sciences which help us understand human interaction: psychology, sociology, anthropology. My coaching foundation is built on evidence-based approaches to human interaction and business procedures. If you are looking for a coach to explore spirituality, somatic experiencing, esoteric approaches, or drug-induced performance, I would not be the right choice for you.

Where - How Long

I work face-to-face, online, or on the phone with clients during sessions. Most sessions are 60-90 minutes, but there have been times when a ten-minute call was all my client needed to re-align themselves for an important personal interaction: a meeting, a presentation, or even a negotiation.

Coach As Sparring Partner

As your sparring partner, my job is to reflect back to you what I see, hear, and “feel” as well as offer suggestions for finding new approaches to old topics. I see coaching as a process of discovery on your side and a process of guiding on my side. For me, guiding doesn’t mean telling. Telling another person how to approach life is not coaching.


Your Topics, Your Needs, Your Outcomes

During our sessions, my job is to help you see the topic of business leadership from several different perspectives. My job is to help you develop strategies for strengthening things you want to strengthen, and for eliminating things you no longer need. No matter which topic you bring to the session, outcomes are often influenced by your decision making, problem solving, and how you interact with others. I will specifically look for what motivates you, how you approach challenges, and what you employ to solve problems. There will be lots of questions from my side, and the answers will all be yours to choose from.

Evidence-Based and Science-Informed

We may not have hit nirvana yet, but we’ve come a long way on the topic of leadership. And more than ever before, social science plays an important role in the advancement of knowledge available. Social science, enhanced using technology, brings us data and evidence about human interaction, and therefore leadership, that we’ve never had before. I’m talking about information which is crucial to supporting leaders who are facing future business challenges in a world filled with automation, artificial intelligence, and robotics.
I have invested thousands of hours of learning in the past 20+ years in basic methods of coaching as well as social sciences including psychology, sociology, linguistics, law, and politics, as well as in technology, so that my clients will benefit from the most up-to-date knowledge available. It is important to me to provide coaching in a form which is professional and based on techniques which are known to bring valuable change to the coachee. Therefore, I strive to clear out old, ineffective ways of coaching and to keep my knowledge up to date.
