Take My Complimentary Public Speaking Assessment!

Early in his Wall Street career, Chuck found that all the executives had a certain presence and way of communicating – a skill that wasn’t taught in college. Excellent communication was critical in the finance world, where professionals were frequently either giving or listening to presentations.

Chuck realized early on, if he didn’t figure out how to significantly improve his communications skills, he would be stuck where he was —with little hope of advancement.

Individual Executive Coaching

“Half the leaders of the world don’t need to learn what to do. They need to learn what to stop.” Marshall Goldsmith, TRIGGERS

Climb Leadership One-on-One Executive Coaching helps professionals to master the most critical element in successful leadership: themselves.

The first task in management has nothing to do with leading others. Step one poses the challenge of knowing and managing oneself.

Daniel Goleman

Author of Emotional Intelligence

Utilizing the multifaceted 360 Degree Survey – which stresses the importance of self-awareness – leaders achieve a more complete perception of how others see them, leading to more effective interactions and increased capacity. By becoming more aware of one’s behaviors, and how others perceive you, you can more fully contribute to organizational goals and objectives.

In addition to this personalized survey, Chuck covers additional key elements with clients to develop leaders that others admire, trust, and are willing to follow, including:

  • Executive Presence: Appearance, Compelling Communication Skills, Gravitas
  • Ability to assert oneself constructively, engage an audience, and works well under pressure.
  • Power to inspire, persuade, and provoke change among a wide variety of constituents.
  • Recognition, understanding, and practice of greater Emotional Intelligence

The main objective of executive coaching is to logically connect these dots as the building blocks for exceptional communication and leadership skills.
