Hyper-achieving CEOs and senior executives know that performance matters. But for many, defining exactly what performance is supposed to look like is a challenge, let alone measuring it, developing the necessary skill sets, and deriving deeper satisfaction from increased performance. This is an even bigger challenge for business leaders preparing for retirement.
My name is John Furth and I help clients deal with day-to-day issues, challenges, and opportunities with less stress, more confidence, and better results. Through two frameworks I’ve developed, “The Owning Tomorrow Performance Model” and “The Six Plus Two P’s of Leadership”, clients discover the importance of accountability, maintaining discipline and good habits, and starting a virtuous cycle of continuous learning.
But the work doesn’t end there. At some point, my clients’ confidence, courage, and commitment increase to such an extent that they find themselves able 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.

An Executive Coach has to gain a client’s trust quickly. Only when a client feels comfortable opening up will they receive the most value a coach has to offer. In the pre-COVID-19 world the best way to do this was to have regular face-to-face meetings that created safe spaces to talk.
That ended abruptly on March 23rd. Since then, executive coaches have been trying to adapt their skills to a virtual world with potentially many benefits…and downsides… for both parties.
