    "As a CEO, where do you turn when you need help to work things out? In golf you would turn to the Pro for a lesson or 'tune-up' for a specific issue. In business you may find your staff and professional advisors can help to some degree, but don't have your perspective; your executive management colleagues may be able to help with a shared point of view and experiences, but it is difficult to be totally candid and open with potential or existing competitors. I found that working with Dave Gerber for some executive coaching provided a platform for focused self examination and development and a 'safe' environment which permits open and candid examination of the issues with an individual that can tap your inner strength to resolve the issues at hand. Like a great coach, or the golf Pro, Dave doesn't give you theory from a book or tell you how you 'should', he helps you work through the problem by giving you the right tools to assist you in solving it. As I told Dave: 'It's time well spent!'."

Our coaches utilize goal-orientated, personally tailored training for busy executives.

  6. Remember, our services can also be means of rewarding and retaining key staff critical to the business.
Other Reasons to Consider Synergy Coaching:
  1. Many supervisors and senior managers want and welcome support and challenge from someone external to their immediate work environment.
  2. Consider the increasing demand by organizations for senior managers and effective leaders with key 'soft skills'. Often, individuals with strong content knowledge are elevated to management positions. These leaders, and those out of business school, need exposure to feedback-based approaches that provide reflection opportunities, self-insight and the acquisition of soft skills.
  3. Consider this...the nature of the executive coaching relationship is private and avoids that public gaze. This can be a great way to encourage those who worry that being seen to undergo organizational development may be perceived by others as admitting they have a weakness.
  4. Consider this...attendance on whole-day courses or regular learning sets can seem an imposition into an already busy schedule for executives and supervisors. Sessions with executive coaches can be fitted around other professional and personal commitments.
  5. Consider this...executive coaching  and effective leadership training can be a fun outlet that taps creativity and customized solutions to organizational and relationship obstacles.

The Executive Coaching Process

Coaching is 100% confidential. The coaching relationship is built on trust and confidentiality is critical. When we are hired by a corporation to provide individual coaching, we agree up front on the confidentiality. In this situation, confidentiality is determined jointly by you, your corporation, and your coach.
