Executive Coaching

A coach cultivates and enhances the skills and talent you already possess. Not so much a teacher, but more of an outside objective listener and truth-teller, the coach holds up a mirror so that you can see and improve your behavior and interactions and level up your leadership.

You may choose to work with an executive coach for a variety of reasons. Many chief officers find that the need to enhance their skills at conflict resolution is a key factor in the coaching decision. Increased confidence, improved self-awareness as an individual and in their role, and better interpersonal skills are other frequently cited reasons to begin an engagement.

Traditional strategic planning is a comprehensive multi-step process that helps a business to formulate their vision and map out the strategies and actions that will take them there. A sound strategic plan typically includes establishing key elements.

RoundTable Consulting works with businesses and non-profits to develop all strategic plan components, starting from a high-level analysis all the way through individual action items. The end result is that your team is guided through the development of a full strategic plan with deliverables tailored to your unique organization.

Vistage CEO Peer Groups

Effective executive coaching reaches a higher level when it’s paired with deliberate, thoughtful roundtable discussions with like-minded peers. That’s the powerful combination used in the Vistage CEO Peer Group model, and the reason why I have become a Vistage Chair.

Each peer group brings high-performing leaders together in a confidential, limited roundtable setting. Within this environment of trust, walls come down and discussions get real, especially when prompted by thoughtful, probing questions.
