How does it work?
Much like a personal trainer, executive coaching is tailored to your situation with a 1 on 1 focus on your success. Contrast that with standard incubators where whole cohorts are subjected to the same program regardless of the stage of their business.
We employ various techniques that adjust to the scope of your work. A Startup CEO faces many urgent challenges all at once, while a Senior VP in a large has fewer goals that take much longer to realize. Personalized coaching means you get actionable advice instead of the generalities found in books and podcasts.
A Startup CEO is best described as someone with too many top priorities. We’ll work on “Focus” and “Time Management” skills. When you get that right you unlock your true potential.
1. ELI5 Interview
You’ve polished your “Elevator Pitch” but can you Explain It Like I’m Five? Through the process of teaching me about your business you’ll learn much.
2. Fire Fighting: Let it Burn
One of the most difficult skills to acquire is the ability to ignore urgent matters that don’t matter. We’ll assess where your time disappears and then help set your focus. You’ll gain a framework for deciding what really matters.
A personalized coaching experience means there is no set program from here on out.
We’ll work together to work on what most improves your business right now. It might be Sales, Engineering, Team Management, Recruiting, or Fund Raising.
I believe a good manager elevates a team and a bad one causes harm.
I’ve lead a software company with over 80 developers. I’ve lead medium sized R&D teams where project velocity meant success. I’ve been the Solo Tech Founder where time constraints governed all.
Over the many years spent honing my craft, one thing I’ve learned is that management is a skill. A skill that takes time and effort to master.
When you’re ready to work on your management skills, I’m here to help.
