Business Owner 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.

  • Leadership coaching for newly minted/first-year CEOs

My Ideal Client

Strategic Leadership Coaching in New York City, New York

I work with business owners, Presidents, CEOs, and senior executives who want to take themselves and their organizations to the next level.

Some are looking to improve their company’s growth and/or bottom line. Some need to make changes to their business model, possibly involving a reorganization, digital transformation or an overhaul of their product lines.

Many of my clients want to lower their stress levels and increase their energy, focus and confidence. They want to grow as leaders and improve their productivity so they can spend more quality time with family and friends.

But fundamentally, my ideal clients embrace the opportunity of working as a member of a group of peers and/or with an experienced businessman, coach and consultant like me. They know this is the best way to get agenda-free advice, generate new ideas, receive honest feedback and learn new skills.

When I take on a new client, I make a commitment to dramatically increase their own and their organization’s performance and results. In return, I expect them to take on the challenge of personal and professional change and growth.

That requires a high degree of openness and vulnerability and the willingness to question and transform unproductive beliefs and disempowering behaviors.

While many people are good at learning, my clients don’t just learn, they hold themselves accountable to APPLY those learnings to their lives and businesses.

And that makes all the difference in the world.
