Executive Coaching is a partnership in exploration and development—and one of the most purposeful relationships anywhere in the business world. My work with clients focuses on leadership depth and organizational impact. In addition to my own direct clients, I have coached as a member of Marshall Goldsmith Associates coaching faculty and today use a modified version of his stakeholder-based coaching methodology.
I utilize The Leadership Circle 360 along with stakeholder interviewing for the assessment phase of the work. Stakeholder feedback adds rich depth and structure to the organization’s perception of my client’s leadership style and capacity.
In addition to individual leadership and executive coaching, I coach both intact and bet-the-business project teams.
About Hiring an Executive Coach:
While there is no licensure for becoming a coach, there are professional credentialing bodies and professional development training. I hold a Certificate in Leadership Coaching from Georgetown University’s Institute for Transformational Leadership (Part of the Center for Professional Development. I am also credentialed at the Professional Certified Coach level by the International Coach Federation, the largest of the coach credentialing bodies. I served as the ICF Vice Chair of Ethics and Standards at the ICF between 2009-2012.
Today, I am on the faculty for the Georgetown Certificate in Leadership Coaching program and teach Coaching Ethics. Below are links to my Coaching CV and articles from Harvard Business Review and London’s Financial Times that will help you get grounded if you are unfamiliar with Executive Coaching.
