Services | Unlock Your Leadership


One-on-one Executive Coaching

One on one executive coachingYou get the best of what I have learned about business success over the last 35 years.  I have helped over 400 CEOs, and a few thousand V.Ps unlock their leadership.  In these sessions, you get to address what is facing you right now.  I not only help you find the right answer to the issue, but also help you discover what has been emotionally standing in the way of you discovering the “blind spot” on your own.  “If you give a man to fish, you feed them for a day – if you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.”  One-on-one coaching, in my mind, is not necessarily a long term thing.  It is to help you see what you need to see about yourself, in a professional and loving way (which sometimes looks like “in your face”) so you can grow on your own going forward.  I am not committed to just helping you with the issues you are facing today, I AM COMMITTED to helping you see what may be basic in your soul, that prevents you from growing on your own.  How long does it take?  I have met with some clients for one time.  I have worked with leaders who want to continue to take new ground constantly through their career, and have met with them, monthly, for over five years.  I have dozens of clients that have left, through M/A, or IPO and moved on to a new play, that have called me back to start over again.  The average number of months that clients have chosen to work with me is 11 months.  When I work with a client in one-on-one coaching, there is no contract.  So you start when you want, and stop when you want.  If you want to see how powerful this work can be, click here to see our client testimonials

Off-Site Facilitation

Offsite FacilitationOnce a client knows us, and how we can empower their leadership, they often ask us to deliver many of the powerful leadership training principles to their teams.  Off-sites are dynamic.  Every team is different.  So we address them in an open and highly interactive way.  They learn how to: find their passion, turn it into commitment, create alignment within the team, and create a strategic plan to accomplish their common commitment.  Our goal at the end of the offsite is for your team to: discover what has been standing in their way as a group in working effectively together, empower their hearts to want to change, develop their strategic goal, and plan, commit to that plan, and know exactly when and how they are going to disseminate and lead their direct reports to accomplish their goals.

Leadership Training Videos

Video IconWe have taken the best leadership advice, coaching, and training, and incorporated them into a continuing series of short downloadable videos.  While they are short, so you can watch them in the airport, they are packed with nuggets of how to leadership power.  We use our clients, our experience, and mostly our blog to determine what to put into our next video series.  “If you have a question, or feeling ‘pain’ about a topic, it is very likely that many others will feel that pain also.”  You get one per week, for a very small subscription fee.  Here is a list of video topics available now:

Knowledge vs. an Epiphany
Knowledge is good. But in the beginning is when we see our blind spots which prevents us from achieving our life dreams and goals.

The Work/Life Balance.
This is the triple paradox. What to do with family, what I need to do for work, and what do I want in my own personal desires? How do we juggle all these? Here are the tools for you to find your answers!

Scary Movies in our life.
How to find the courage to pursue your dreams, in the face of fear, which often stops us in our tracks. This becomes especially important at the moment that we face the beginning of success. Because then, and only then, do we have something to lose. I will show how to navigate these dangerous waters.

Teams win… Individuals Do Not!
Conflict, back biting, pointing a finger of blame, and e-mail wars, all kill companies. The key is to choose forgiveness, not blame how we do this. I will help you find the answer for you.

Keynote Speaking

Keynote SpeakingPassionate, articulate, and life changing.  These are the terms I have received from my speaking engagements.  Sizes from 10 people up to 3,000.  Speaking engagements are different from coaching.  There is no verbal two way communication, so I need to know a lot about the group I am speaking to.  I want to know: who they are, what they do, what is their pain, what do they hope to achieve, what stands in the way, why do they want it, what is their payoff, and what group “garbage” or “Dead Elephant” is there in the room?  Let me know how large the group, when, and we will get you a quote.  I want to speak to your group, because at this stage of my life, I want to make a larger difference in the world.  I want to call people to their; greater, higher good.   I once attended a conference in Walnut Creek, CA featuring three speakers.  One was a great speaker Cavett Roberts.  He moved me so, and made a huge difference in my thinking.  At the end of his address, I stood in line and told him; “How magnificent it must be to do this, and make this big of a difference you must make”.  He was great!!  But his answer floored me.  He said: Dan, when we get up here to speak, we know that we are actually changing the lives of 3% of the audience.”  I said; “That must be very difficult and disappointing”.  He said:  “No, we just look for the 3% in the audience to find eye contact with.”  I purposed to be different.  I believe I have.  But this is not to belittle Mr. Roberts.  He changed my thinking and thus my life.  If I can change someone today, then I have improved his 3% percentage.
