WHAT WE DO
Each client’s goals and meaningful growth are the primary focus of our coaching process. With this in mind, we begin by identifying individual strengths, capabilities, and opportunities through their eyes, and those of their stakeholders. Then, we work together to create practical action steps that advance their success. The coaching process involves deep exploration of professional and personal development areas so coach-client chemistry is important. That’s why we set clear expectations and create a welcoming space where meaningful, transparent dialogue can happen. In doing so, individuals and teams reach new levels of achievement that benefit them personally as well as support their organization’s culture and business outcomes.
HOW WE WORK
Our Founder and Principal, Todd Weinstein, has a coaching style that is described as insightful, professional, empathetic and committed. From this place, he draws on his intuition and his extensive experience working with Fortune 500 organizations. He also uses a proven process informed by the Hudson Institute of Coaching, which involves five key areas of focus:
Assess coaching readiness, review success conditions, and agree on the way client and coach work together.
Establish Coaching Contract
Understand where client is now and where he/she wants to be in 6-12 months, conduct interviews to reveal complete client story and fully develop goals for coaching.
Current Situation, Inspired Future
Identify client’s strengths and obstacles, then focus on mindset shifts to build new behaviors for maximum impact.
Deliver intensive coaching that maps to client’s specific goals, with course correction as needed; provide periodic progress check-ins with stakeholders.
Measure effectiveness by asking and answering, “How far did we come?”, then create a long-range sustainability plan for client’s ongoing success.
Conclude Coaching Engagement
This methodology follows a prescribed process but the work itself is as dynamic and unique as the individuals we coach. Our measures of success at the end of the engagement are clients who are inspired to do the work, are open to continued learning and self-reflection, and embrace healthy curiosity.
We are committed to helping our clients succeed by focusing on four key elements for every engagement:
Elements of Client Success

Build and maintain a coach/client relationship that is honest, transparent and trusting.
Achieve meaningful and measurable results that align with coaching plan.
Celebrate real, long-lasting change that shows client is capable of making great strides to reach their true potential.
