What I Do And Why I Do It Business Coaching

After SIX years running my own business coaching and management consulting firm, even some people that know me really well say they are not entirely sure exactly WHAT I DO.
Given I am a lifelong marketer with branding and communications at my core, this is NOT a good thing.  So, today’s blog attempts to answer any questions folks may have about what I do and why I do what I do.
What I DO, and WHY I Do It.
It is my singular goal and life’s remaining ONE TRUE passion to help as many people as I can to find THEIR passion and strengths and combine the two into a successful career.
As for WHY I do this…that’s easy.  After spending 23 years in Corporate America helping organizations achieve record profits, I found a greater calling.  I had grown tired of toiling away in dysfunctional cultures reporting to people I didn’t respect and being forced to answer to Management teams that I did not trust.
So I chose the career path of going out on my own in 2009.
While every day is a challenge and there are certainly significant highs and lows running your own business, I have never regretted the decision.  Has it paid off?
Well, to date I have helped over 12,000 people and coached over 750 organizations.
For some people that means assisting them through career coaching to find their dream job, re-enter the workforce, or match their values, ethics and morals to organizations whose culture they would thrive in.
For Senior level executives and professionals this involves working one on one to carve out a career plan to achieve their goals.
For people looking to go out on their own I provide entrepreneur and start-up coaching to help people plan, launch and grow wildly successful businesses.
For existing business owners, heads of business units and/or leaders of non-profits my work can involve helping them to unleash their people’s collective full untapped potential.
I also provide business consulting, to help organizations improve their sales, become more disciplined and focused and go from “GOOD TO GREAT.”
I accomplish this in a number of ways, from giving motivational talks, to teaching at many colleges and Universities, to one on one and group-based career coaching and business consulting.
It may seem a bit long winded but at the end of the day I enable people from all walks of life to find their passions and strengths, figure out where those two worlds overlap, and leverage that knowledge to help them achieve all of their short and long term career and business goals.
So, if you or someone you know can benefit from any of this, send them my way.
