Powerful Processes for Peak

Leadership Performance



We help Leaders discover a powerful process to gain immediate results and lasting benefits.


By helping you choose the right actions that move you forward, you become self-accountable for results.


By understanding your true motivations, we help you create new habits to enable and sustain achievement.

Who We Work With

Leaders come in many diverse and unique packages and can benefit from coaching throughout their careers. But the most effective leaders create positive habits – habits that result from choices they make each day. They push themselves to come up with meaningful goals, and have a system for breaking them down into manageable parts. They then choose actions that move them in the right direction - and most importantly, become self-accountable for results. Maybe you are:

  •  A tired project leader who has begun to miss critical milestones

  • A new leader struggling to create a high performing team while navigate organizational changes

  • A newly promoted subject matter expert who wonders what "growing my business acumen" means

  • An experienced leader facing change after layoffs and major organizational change, M&A activities, or transition from start up to public company.

Whether it is the individual contributor who just became a people or business leader, or an experienced leader facing a major challenge outside their current comfort zone, our coaching can help.

Why Choose Us?

As Leaders move up the “talent pyramid”, they often struggle to balance their functional, people leadership and business roles. Without support, amazing individuals get frustrated, fail and leave.... or worse, fail and stay. And when a Leader is failing, their team and business suffers as well. 


What’s needed is a process and partnership to assist the Leader in gaining clarity and focus on goals, priorities, actions, and accountability.

Choosing a coach is an important decision.  We offer a unique combination of Executive Leadership experience with proven methodologies and extensive coaching capabilities from the FOCUS™ suite of solutions. 

Together, we put in place the structure, actions and cycle of motivation and accountability to help leaders tap into their passion – and help them get from where they are to where they dream of going.


Our Growth Model

The heart of our coaching process is a series of focused conversations guided by the GROWTH™ coaching model. We use this process to help leaders:

  • articulate their goals and the motivation to achieve them

  • understand the current reality - what’s already in place that’s helping them reach their goals, and what is missing

  • create options for moving purposefully toward each goal

  • select the options most likely to “move the needle”– to close the gap from where they currently are to goal achievement

  • choose specific actions, steps and timing

  • determine how progress will be measured

  • create habits to enable and sustain progress

The process begins with an initial meeting where we explore and establish meaningful goals, measurements, and standards of accountability. Follow up conversations are scheduled and conducted either virtually or in person.
