What Our Clients Say

Coaching helped me improve communication skills and empower my leadership effectiveness in leading by influence. Becky is very considerate, took time to help me articulate and fully understand my challenges. She is very genuine in her interest in my success. I am very lucky I got to work with Becky as my Executive Coach.

-Senior Product Manager

Becky has helped me to understand myself, my motivations and my style and how that is being interpreted by my colleagues. With that understanding, I have been able to adjust and clarify my true intent which has helped make our teams more effective at developing and delivering winning products. It has for sure provided a lift in my ability to gain followership.

-Product Manager

I could not ask for anything more out of the experience. Becky has great insight and is able to help get to the root of items I am working to develop. She has an uncanny ability to pick up on small cues that lead to areas that are not obvious at first, but are at the heart of my development.

-Line Executive

Rebecca is dynamic and able to flex teaching styles to meet evolving needs. The cadence of coaching provides for timely feedback loops matched with accountability. I have been very happy with results of receiving coaching, and enjoy working with Rebecca. Feedback from stakeholders has been positive as Rebecca challenges me for my best and holds me accountable to take action.

Our Coaching is Principled Coaching

  • Balance – We all enjoy a mix of things: some help us move forward and some hinder our move forward.
  • Contextual – All behavior makes sense in context. Our job is to help you make sense of your context.
  • Direct, specific and non-punishing – You will work in an safe environment with us.
  • Self-directed – You will be the one to determine how far you go and how fast you make progress.
  • Feedforward – We will deal more with the future (that which we can change) than with the past (that which we cannot change).
  • Disciplined – We use proven tactics and tools of consulting in organizations, and adapt them to work with individuals. This is neither “touchy-feely” nor one single approach.
  • Time limited – Our processes are designed to reduce the need for coaching as goals are achieved, not to make you dependent on a never-ending relationship.

Proceeding with Coaching

Our coaching engagement will be individually designed to fit your own situation and your own goals. We will provide you a tailor-made process designed to meet your goals in specific and timely ways. The following description of some typical tactics and tools will give you a sense of how we might proceed:

  1. In our introductory discussion we will check our relationship for fit and chemistry. A good coaching relationship will be one where both parties feel comfortable.
  2. We routinely start with a thorough intake assessment and interview. You will complete an inventory of your situation, and we will discuss the results as a way for us to begin identifying your goals and the shape of our work together.
  3. Temperament or style inventories can often be a big help in addressing underlying strengths and areas for development.
  4. Sometimes a structured module (such as “Building Bridges”) is just the right tool to help you build a strong network of peers, superiors, employees, and support.
  5. Homework” can provide specific steps to take, and can give you a sense of accomplishment and provide for meaningful dialogue during our conversations.
  6. Every couple of weeks we will discuss your progress in one-on-one conversations, either in-person, via video, or on the phone.
  7. Email and text connect us in between conversations.
