COMPANY COACHING

Elevate your business

This option is for leadership teams or boards. Ken will work directly with your team to create a set of quarterly OKRs. While coaching, he’ll begin to align the key leaders’ objectives to help them come together to reach their targeted key results. Then, Ken reports back to the senior leader and/or HRBP.

EXECUTIVE COACHING

Conquer your OKRs

This option is for one-on-one coaching with high-level professionals. Ken will work directly with your manager or supervisor to create a set of quarterly Objectives and Key Results (OKRs), as well as help you establish your own, personal OKRs. Together, you and Ken set out on a path that enables you to accomplish the given OKRs, and Ken will report back to the senior leader and/or human resources business partner (HRBP).

Compensation: Typically paid for by company

INDIVIDUAL COACHING

Reach your individual goals

This option is for self-employed professionals seeking one-on-one coaching, as well as those who are seeking coaching outside of their organization. When Ken works with entrepreneurs and solopreneurs, he helps you to focus on the areas where you believe growth is most important. 

These areas may include:

  •  Defining and clarifying your professional brand
  • Growing your industry visibility
  • Increasing your ability to attract the right kind of clients
  • Enhancing your online presence and impact
  • Launching a new entrepreneurial venture
  • Taking your current practice to the next level

Ken typically works with individual coaching clients in the following ways:

  • Hosting an intensive, 2.5-hour strategy session
  • Establishing a 3-month focused coaching program for new clients
  • Instituting an ongoing, 12-month coaching program for approved clients

These coaching methods are not right for everyone; rather, the offerings are personalized to meet your needs, and are priced accordingly.

Compensation: $5,000 per quarter (35% discount off corporate rate)

Note: For people just beginning their career or whose venture is in its earliest stages, Ken recognizes this may be out of your price range. That’s why he also offers free coaching on Thursday nights or trial $500 paid coaching sessions.

Why Coaching?

If you are looking for a way to quickly achieve your goals, an executive coach can be the answer. They will bring all of their personal experience “doing” and learned knowledge from coaching others so that both parties walk into this relationship with clarity on what they want out it – which means less time wasted trying new things or getting lost in unfamiliar territory.
