Each are among the greatest EVER in their game, and each has leaned heavily on a relationship with a coach. Successful individuals surround themselves with people who can help them achieve their goals. The best are constantly sharpening their saw and intentionally finding opportunities to be coached.
Because it is often lonely at the top, many executives feel restrained and isolated and are rightly concerned about sharing their challenges in-house for fear they will not remain private.
Don’s executive coaching clients include high-level executives across a wide range of industries including one of the largest corporate banks in the Eastern Caribbean, the world’s largest real estate company, a prominent television network with approximately 88,255,000 viewers, a high conviction global investment management firm and a family-owned restaurant chain of 14 restaurants throughout northern New Jersey.
Additionally, Don is one of America’s best storytellers and has worked with clients to improve their corporate storytelling in business skills, helping them learn to use metaphors and engaging stories to grab attention, inspire action and be a more persuasive and commanding presenter, whether it is designing a great presentation or simply becoming a more effective speaker for any occasion.
Regardless of your specific focus area, Don will help you improve self-awareness, set goals, work toward them, and improve specific aspects of your performance.
Individual and Company Sponsored Executive Coaching
Don Yaeger offers two options for coaching relationships – one that is established through your company and a second that is arranged on an individual basis. They both follow a similar process, with the exception that in company-sponsored coaching, sponsor meetings are scheduled after every fourth meeting. At this meeting, the sponsor is advised on the client’s progress, while respecting coach/client confidentiality, but ensuring that the company’s goals are taken into account.
Don and the client initially meet to have an open discussion on the desired outcome for Executive Coaching. It is recommended that the client initially take an assessment– preferred is the 360 Degree Feedback process in which clients receive confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them. This is used to identify strengths, opportunities, management style, presentation style, etc.
The coach and client meet once a month for a period of one year or more. Coaching is conducted on a one-to-one basis, in person for the initial meeting, and then over the telephone or video conference. Coaching is completely confidential, giving the client an opportunity to share personal and business concerns while gaining an outside perspective.
