Executive Coaching

An experiential learning process focusing on feedback, reflection, guidance and accountability, Executive Coaching is personalized for the individual and issues involved. It offers a candid and supportive environment where leaders can confidently gain new insights, learn new skills and develop new behaviors.

Leadership Development

A company’s ability to continually grow and succeed is directly linked to the quality of its rising talent. Developing high-potential leaders provides assurance that the right people will be ready to address business challenges and opportunities as they arise. Leadership Development helps high-potential individuals fill skill gaps, become aware of blind spots, learn new behaviors and develop executive presence.

Effective Communication

From client pitches and board room presentations, to town-hall meetings and the hallway conversations that influence major decisions, the nuanced ability to communicate successfully with various audiences and stakeholders is a must-have skill for professionals and leaders at any level. Effective Communication gives clients persuasive and easy-to-implement strategies to use in writing, in a presentation, in conversation, in Q & A sessions, or any other public speaking situations.

Executive Presence

Recent surveys among hundreds of global senior executives confirm what people have known instinctively for centuries—that a perceived lack of executive presence can seriously impede leadership effectiveness and keep otherwise highly qualified individuals from advancing to more senior leadership positions. This high-impact workshop and coaching program will teach high-potential leaders and senior executives how to build gravitas, develop a strong personal brand and hone influencing skills to demonstrate leadership, build relationships and communicate for results.


As a basis for a well-informed coaching relationship and to help clients gain greater awareness of their strengths, potential blind spots, communication and leadership styles and areas for development, we offer a number of psychological and professional assessments  for individuals or entire organizational systems. The following diagnostic tools are offered as either part of an executive coaching engagement or independently as part of an organizational development initiative.
