Coaching

Mentors and coaches have played a significant role in my life and have impacted me profoundly as it relates to my personal and professional growth. I believe a coach can play a vital role in your life and that is why I offer coaching services in the areas of sports, business, and life. Over the years, I have had the honor and privilege of working with some very successful individuals to help them unleash their potential and accomplish their goals while also growing in the process. Here are the different types of coaching that I offer:

  • Leadership Coaching – While there are many terms for this type of coaching – business coaching, executive coaching, etc. – I use the term Leadership Coaching with the main goal of helping people become more effective at leading themselves and leading others. In this area, I typically work with high potential and high performing leaders who want to accomplish their personal and professional goals, expand their sphere of influence, and direct, guide, and coach the people who work with them in the most effective ways.

  • Sports Performance Coaching – The mental game is an essential part of an athlete’s performance on the court or their respective field of play. Using sports psychology and sports performance ideas and techniques, I work with elite amateur and professional athletes to help them  develop a high performance mindset leveraging my “Perform in the Moment” system.

  • Life Coaching – This type of coaching consists of helping you plan your life around the right priorities, purpose, and calling. I have worked with many people in this area to develop a personal mission statement, core values, and SMART goals. I have also coached people through career transitions in their lives using our 3-Step System. Read more…
  • Jump Start Program – The Jump Start program is an individual coaching program that we offer as an initial way to get started with coaching. This program is tailored to anyone who wants to “jump start” their goals and action plans, career, performance, and/or productivity. Read more…
  • Leadership Cohorts – We also offer group coaching in the form of leadership cohorts that last anywhere from 6-12 months. Participants benefit from both group coaching sessions in a peer group as well as individual coaching from me and/or one of my team members. Read more…
