Executive Coaching in New York City

Transform Your Performance

The audience for my coaching and keynote speeches is mostly hyper-achieving CEOs and senior executives. While outwardly successful, most often they often feel like they’re underperforming or have given up too much for their careers or businesses. Others are adjusting to situations significantly different than what they were doing before, such as taking on a more senior role, going into retirement, or pivoting their company. All of them are looking to be inspired and motivated.

I initially help new clients learn to deal with day-to-day issues, challenges, and opportunities with less stress, more confidence, and better results. They discover the importance of being held accountable, maintaining discipline and good habits, and starting a virtuous cycle of continuous learning.

As a natural outcome, many clients then discover they have more potential to achieve greater things than they originally thought. When that happens, they have taken an important first step to transformation, a journey that becomes more exciting and rewarding every day.

To make this process clearer and less daunting, I have developed two proprietary frameworks:

  1. “The Owning Tomorrow Performance Model”, which lays out the basic process of committing to desired outcomes and ensuring mindsets, behaviors, and decisions are properly aligned.
  2. As the name implies, “The Six Plus Two Principles of Leadership” highlights altogether six activities and two important mindsets that any leader needs to master.

Behind these frameworks are a multitude of tools, techniques, and exercises I use as appropriate to guide my clients through their journeys. You can watch two short videos and read more under the “About John” tab of this website.

Introducing Myself

Armed with an undergraduate degree from Harvard and an MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business, I became a management consultant for CEOs and their leadership teams at large multinational corporations. When, after 15 years, I became a CEO myself – albeit of small companies – I discovered that my experience as a corporate consultant was even more valuable for leaders of small companies looking to grow themselves and their businesses.

Thus, at the age of 56, I transformed myself into an Executive Coach Chair in NYC, working with CEOs and owners of small and medium-sized companies. As a logical next step, I recently decided to start a new business – Executives Over 50 – helping former executives design post-corporate lives that are enjoyable and impactful.

I’m also a highly sought-after author and keynote speaker on subjects related to leadership, retirement, and business disruption. I estimate I have designed and run over 1000 workshops and in-person and virtual seminars for my clients as well as the general public.
