The role of an “executive coach” is similar to that of a psychologist. I provide listening, support, and encouragement, as I do as a psychologist. Yet as a coach, I also assess and explicitly focus your attention to dwell upon your strengths – the attributes that give you the “presence” and “charisma” to be an influential leader.
I’ll assist you in blending facts and logic with intuition and emotion.
5 Advanced Coaching Protocols to Improve Your Impact
Each model or protocol begins with your acute awareness and articulation of your current situation. Whether you fully realize it or not, how you conceptualize your problem and feel about it directly influences your outcome. As a team of two, we will aim to refine and improve your described state.
Having identified your current state and desired state, I have multiple valid and reliable assessments that can highlight your strengths and assist you in stretching yourself. Newly recognized strengths, skills, and strategies generate a new sense of awareness that requires your practice in real-world situations. You’ll want to “internalize” your sense of how it feels to be functioning more effectively.
The more you practice these potently practical skills, the more comfortable and skillful you will become in utilizing them. The choice is yours to make. Sign up for a complete program, combine two or more, or take one level at a time.
Self-confidence is experiencing genuinely positive feelings about yourself while accepting your faults and foibles.

Enhance Your Social Effectiveness & Personal Influence
Your leadership coaching will begin by highlighting your most impactful interpersonal skills in level 1; it’s not the most intelligent people who are the most successful or the most fulfilled in life.
You probably know people who are academically brilliant and yet are socially inept and unsuccessful at work or in their relationships. This should be obvious, but, it’s not the loudest, most aggressive people either. In fact, these are more likely to be the reasons organizations lose good people. Soft skills are not to be taken lightly. Know which ones you’re best at and capitalize on them.

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Master mental skills to improve your performance.”― Robert M. Nideffer, PhD
Performance depends on the ability to pay attention to the right things at the correct times and pressure changes the way we concentrate, make decisions, and interact with others. Let’s look at your critical performance variables and help you, like any other elite performer, understand the conditions that create pressure for you so that you can predict and control your responses to that pressure. Finally, getting into the zone is a cognitive, emotional, and physical state; complete the program (24 sessions + 4 assessments).
When you want to correct or improve your performance, you must first identify the source of the problem. Choosing which course of action to take then becomes a major source of anxiety for some of us.
We maintain that controlling attention and shifting concentration from an external to an internal focus is essential to the correction process. To achieve your full potential, you must develop faith in both your ability to accept responsibility and solve problems and in the procedures you intend to use. “You must develop methods for predicting concentration in the face of doubt and make a commitment to follow through in spite of the doubts.” Robert Nideffer, Ph.D.
To reiterate, making a diagnosis is the first step in improving concentration and committing yourself to a coaching program. As soon as you determine the nature of your problem, your feelings of confusion decrease as you gain a sense of direction and structure, and that makes it easier to think and concentrate.
Pro Tip: The useful concept of centering comes from the martial arts and refers to a process used to create feelings of being grounded, calm, relaxed, receptive, and clear in thought.

Although you can talk about anything with a Psychologist, we all have preferences. My preference is for coaching. I utilize only highly validated and reliable psychological assessments. I have taken all assessments myself, and I love them, or I don’t use them. – Richard W. Anton
