Coaching is a specific type of conversation between the coach and the employee (or team) being coached. Instead of directing or advising, the coach asks powerful questions that help the client reframe their challenge and identify new behaviors and actions that will help them better achieve the desired outcomes. The client then becomes accountable to the coach for the changes they commit to make.
Erik functions as an expert listener, careful observer and challenging questioner to help you hone your leadership strategy. Clients build dynamic and accountable teams, get out of your own way, and lead with deeper insight, clarity, maturity and courage. Along the way, executives learn superior coaching by experiencing it themselves first. Trying to transform your team without working on yourself is like going out for a long bike ride without checking the air pressure in the tires. Our primary clients are presidents, CEOs, COOs, VP-level executives, owners, managing partners, executive directors, and other senior-level leaders.
Coaching relationships typically begin with an exploratory telephone conversation, which is confidential and without obligation.
