Executive Coaching

Roger Federer. Michael Jordan. Annika Sorenstam. Drew Brees…

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 lonely at the top, many executives feel a pressure that others don’t see, and are rightly concerned about sharing their challenges in-house for fear they will not remain private. Sometimes you need a coach who knows how to listen.

Don’s executive coaching clients include high-level executives across a wide range of industries including Directors at the largest corporate bank in the Caribbean, a division CEO within the world’s largest real estate company, President with a prominent television network boasting 88,255,000 viewers, CEO at a global investment management firm and Owner of a family-owned chain of 14 restaurants throughout northern New Jersey.

Don’s monthly agenda with each client ranges from discussion around key personnel decisions to strategic discussions on team building. He even engages in conversation about how they better tell their own corporate story.

Don is recognized as one of America’s best storytellers and has helped his clients improve their corporate storytelling in business skills, learn to use metaphors and engaging stories to grab attention, inspire action and be more persuasive. While some coaches work from a “program”, Don works to help each of his clients meet their immediate needs wherever that might take the conversation during their time together.

Regardless of your specific focus area, Don will help you improve self-awareness, set goals, achieve those goals, and improve specific aspects of your performance.

Some of the best corporate leaders choose Don to work with them through business demands like:

  • Polishing their executive presence
  • Repairing damaged workplace relations
  • Developing and leading high-functioning teams
  • Managing and coaching leadership during company transitions and layoffs
  • Performing, learning, and staying healthy and balanced
  • Enabling leaders to unlock and unleash their full potential so they bring greater value to the people and entities they serve
  • Improving work/life integration

    "After 30 years in the military, I was transitioning to a new role and to have counsel like Don at my side and during the transition helped me make thoughtful and important decisions. Sometimes a well-timed question is exactly what you need."

  • Nigel Baptiste

    Republic Bank

    "Don helped me develop a more measured response to the various situations in which I find myself, particularly those involving disputes. As a result of Don’s coaching I improved dramatically in engaging those likely to be affected by decisions taken and securing greater input and participation by individuals who have tended to feel they were being marginalized. I now believe that victory for others is not a defeat for me."
