Reaching the Peak – Coaching & Development for Executive Leaders & Teams

I help executive leaders and teams achieve their professional and personal goals by providing life changing coaching and development.

As a Master Coach, I focus on the issues and opportunities facing successful business executives.  Many of my clients are senior executives and/or fast track rising stars, most of whom would describe themselves as highly driven, type “A” personalities.  The approach I take is a “whole life” approach in which we look at the client’s life as a whole.  The fundamental questions we are seeking to answer are, “What do you want out of life?” and “What is blocking you from achieving it?”  The focus is on personal growth and development, which almost always brings significant professional results as well.  The results I have consistently achieved with my clients include increased peace, calm, and clarity of purpose in their personal and professional life.  As a result they are more focused and effective in reaching their goals.

As a facilitator, I work with executive leadership teams on issues ranging from strategic alignment, to trust, communication, change management, peak performance, culture, collaboration, and more.
