How do we do it?

Our work begins with an assessment of your leadership including a battery of tests and an in depth analysis of perceptions of you within your organization. Based on this assessment, we set goals. Coaching sessions are conducted virtually, usually on a once-a-month basis, more often if necessary. During the course of the year, you may come to our facility in Taos, New Mexico for an individual retreat. This provides a unique opportunity for reflection away from the daily pressures of the office.

Coaching sessions are creative and dynamic, meeting you where you are and figuring out how to take you to the next level. Our conversations are guided by your core leadership goals, along with the immediate challenges that you are facing on a day-to-day basis. Your daily struggles are like flags marking the exact place where we need to drill down, and we can drill as deep as you care to. Our work together will, at times, be incredibly fun, and at other times, deeply inspirational. Rarely is this work dull. Humor is critical.
