frequent questions

how much do your services cost?

Since we are a small firm, we customize every engagement according to your scope and budget. We'll work with you to find a price that works for both parties.

if I'm not finding value, can I cancel?

Yes, we stand by our services 100%. We operate on a flexible month-to-month model so If at any point, you're not finding value, you can cancel. We also ask for tons of feedback along the way.

how does coaching work?

Executive coaching involves a one-on-one partnership between a trained coach and a client aimed at enhancing leadership skills, performance, and personal development. The process typically begins with setting clear goals and objectives, followed by regular sessions focused on self-reflection, feedback, and skill-building exercises tailored to the individual's needs. We employ various techniques such as active listening, questioning, and providing constructive feedback to help you gain insight, overcome challenges, and achieve your professional objectives.

when can I expect to see changes?

You'll see a few quick wins from every session but true and lasting behavior change takes time. We typically say aim for a minimum of 6-months.

how much work will this be for me?

Like anything, you get what you put in. Real transformation happens in between sessions when you're trying new techniques and testing new skills. How much effort you're willing to give will directly coorelate to the results you see.
