Executive life coaching - Straighten performance

I was hired by Steve's company to work with him because he landed on a performance plan, and my job was to straighten him out.


As an executive life coach, I help you land on your feet again by partnering with you as you navigate the unknown and bring back into balance your mind body and emotions. Together we can determine what you want to be different in your life while gaining clarity on who you are today.

A significant part of the success of executive life coaching is based upon defining useful practices that the client undertakes to habitualize the desired change. Structuring these practices in a way that allows for them to be sustained is CRUCIAL.

In Steve's case, because of his lopsided schedule, they had to be small and easily remembered. Like many people over the years, Steve had developed a very patterned way of being and behaving. To initiate the plan, we needed to agree on commitment.

This point is important because, when it comes to execution, many will think, "well, just do It.". "Just doing it" seldom happens.

Willpower is usually not enough - particularly if the new action being undertaken is new.

We initiated the “Get Fit First Program”. The priority is to create the conditions necessary so you can develop a Well-Rounded life. This helps you achieve harmony and balance, allowing you to adapt with speed and confidence to life situations without stress and anxiety. Before we begin, we outline exactly where you are today and who you have to become in order to build sustainable results.
