Coaching is listening to you, identifying what you need, leveraging your innate talents, and helping you develop an action plan to achieve the desired results. The emphasis is on you finding the solution, not instructing or leading you. Coaching is truly partnering with you as a client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you (the client) to maximize your personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity, and leadership.

Coaching is a goal and results-oriented process that can focus on any area of your business or personal life. Coaching will equip you with the tools, knowledge to be more effective. In the business context, coaching can help you develop new insights into the skills, attitudes and behaviors that will better enable you to support the strategy of the business. It will arm you with creative ways to manage changes in your organization, align the team to meet business challenges, and create specific action steps to evoke immediate and long-term growth.

    Board Participation

    In corporate governance, boards and board dynamics have gained significant importance, scrutiny, and notoriety. These entities, if high performing, can be effective groups for creating change and improving performance in organizations. Yet, each board consists of individuals with their own experiences and objectives. Having someone on your team with board and business experience who understands these dynamics can help the board be more effective in communicating, creating safe spaces to discuss, and ultimately improve the decision-making for the organization.

    Phil actively participates on for-profit and non-profit boards to add value and help them achieve business success. He brings significant board experience having been Chair of a number of organizations and also led or was directly involved in various board committees including development, finance, governance, marketing, membership, and risk.
