FAQs About Our Executive Coaching

How long does the average c-suite consulting engagement last?

It depends on the unique situation of the leader that’s interested in coaching. We take an individualized approach and ultimately only want the leader to engage in coaching for as long as it serves them, their goals, and their professional success.

What makes you different from other executive coaches?

While there are many talented coaches out there, what makes me different is:

  1.  My unique experience as the first female executive coach at Adidas AG,
  2. My rigorous academic certifications through Brown University and ACT’s Leadership and Performance Coaching Certification.

Regardless of the certifications and experiences that a coach offers, what it comes down to is finding the right coaching fit. Each leader is unique and responds to particular processes and personalities. I know I’m not a fit for everyone; however, I know I’m the perfect fit for many.

How do you track goals and outcomes as an executive coach?

We collaborate to build a roadmap to effectively implement strategies with ongoing accountability and success. This roadmap includes tangible metrics that can be regularly reviewed.
