Unlimited Sessions for $2k/month
Learn how to lead your own transformation.
You can get mirroring from a friend and receive feedback from your peers. But can your peers foster within you the deepest levels of leadership that will influence and transform your entire organization from the inside-out?
"Only 2ndCEO Coaching aligns your leadership development with leading inside-out transformation within your own organization."
Everyone Needs a Coach...
When you sign up for coaching, it means you are ready to take the introspective journey to deeper leadership. If you are not ready to begin this process, don’t force it. Gain enough self awareness at least to know whether you are ready for more self awareness and mirroring.
Change will require that you become keenly aware of yourself and are willing to confront your current beliefs and practices related to leadership. Depending on your need for control, this can be a huge leap of faith because this inner journey will lead you away from seeking your own power. By changing your focus to helping others find power, you will ultimately find more power than you will ever need.
Change the Root...the Leaves Follow
- Leadership coaching involves awareness and changes to your perceptions, focus, aspirations, and even values. Change can be difficult and hard work. But once you have changed at the core and your paradigm is changed, you are never the same person again.
- Going to the root of an issue is never the easiest method–it’s easier to work on the leaves. But once a root is changed, all of the branches and leaves change almost automatically. Likewise, once you change yourself, your organization will automatically follow.
- Learning is more than mental; you must learn and practice new behaviors. Learning is more easily and effectively accomplished when experiences are mirrored by a caring and objective person. As your coach, I hope that you will trust me enough to provide that mirror for you.
How It Works
Coaching sessions are unlimited. Let's take whatever time we need to dig into the real and deeper issues. Keeping that focus will be easy if we know we can always meet back up again. If we reach the end of one coaching session and did not finish the conversation, we can schedule another one to finish.
Coaching sessions are scheduled. Serving multiple clients requires me to coordinate times and dates of service. I prefer scheduling regular meetings each week, according to your schedule (early mornings work great; evenings are more difficult). Meeting at least once each week is best in order to make progress.
Coaching sessions are remote. I like to use Google Hangouts for video conferencing. Both of us need protected time and space, which means nobody is coming in or out of the room to interrupt our flow. Some executives leave their offices and schedule separate meeting rooms for privacy. Others meet from home before work. However you choose to arrange things on your side, you will have my full attention during our coaching sessions.
The Greatest Business Investment is Yourself
The journey to become a deeper, more powerful leader is not easy, but it may be one of the most fulfilling–because it will change everything else in your personal, public, and professional life.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
How Fast Can We Go?
It helps to focus more on the journey than the destination. If you push for results within yourself to the point where you do not allow yourself to naturally grow and change from the inside out, you are leading yourself the very way you must learn to not lead others. True transformation follows the natural laws of human growth and change. It takes time to learn, adjust, and think differently as a leader, and that includes you! Be as patient with yourself as you must be in the future with others, and this will serve as great practice for fostering permanent, inside-out change later within those that you lead.
Will I Have Homework?
You will want to dedicate some time for reflection and homework. Writing your experiences in a journal, reading key books, and planning/performing new behaviors are all assignments that will help you during your transformation. If you are too busy to spend at least some time doing these things, write down all of your tasks and then see what items can either be delayed or handled by a direct report. The quicker you progress during coaching, the more time you will reclaim anyway.
