Sometimes the right answers, require better questions.

In a life and a career, we all face crossroads or inflection points, where the steps to move forward are not always obvious.

Maybe you have become a people leader for the first time, and you’re looking for guidance from an independent party to help you assess and develop the skills you and your team require.

Or maybe you are an experienced business owner, but you find yourself facing challenges you’ve never had to manage through before.

For others, the reality of a new phase in their professional and personal life leaves them feeling like they are walking on less than solid ground.

Still others struggle to achieve work/life balance.

I want to help you find your way.

I have spent more than 35 years working in a variety of corporations, building businesses, leading teams and mentoring others. Recently, I have taken that experience and enhanced my skills by learning from leading experts in the field of coaching and leadership.

But even more, I am known for asking the questions that make my clients pause before answering. I seek to help you dive deeper into the heart of the issues at hand, and empower you to achieve aha moments.

Leadership

I help new and experienced leaders take their performance to the next level to improve their skills, prepare for future assignments, achieve better work/life balance and achieve team goals.

Entrepreneurship

Together, we'll develop strategies that allow you to focus on the elements of your business that bring you excitement, while empowering your team to support your growth.

Career Transitions

Unexpectedly in the midst of a job search? Feeling trapped, bored, maybe unfulfilled in your current role? Or maybe your passion is calling you to a new career? I can help you explore your interests and develop strategies to achieve your vision.

Self Assessments

The key to achieving positive change and growth is to begin with an understanding of who you are, what motivates you, and the key elements of your style. As a Certified Hogan Assessor, I can guide you through your assessment results and develop key action items that empower you.

Mental Fitness

Research shows that only 20% of individuals achieve their full potential. For many achieving Mental Fitness is the key to achieving their most important goals and objectives. If you are not mentally fit you will feel mental stress such as frustration, doubt, and uncertainty when facing critical decisions and challenges. I am able to offer the flagship Positive Intelligence Program, developed by Stanford lecturer Shirzad Chamine to my clients as either part of our one on one relationship or in small group settings.

What my clients are saying

"As a new leader, I was challenged learning how to lead others, complete my own work and deliver on my boss' expectations. As a result of developing a better understanding of how I show up, my blind spots, and what motivates me, I have become more self-aware. This has allowed me to be more focused on how I impact others, how I react in the moment, and options for doing things differently."
Ethan S.
Director of Accounting
"Coaching is more than just teaching or providing a roadmap of next steps. It’s the ability to empower, empathize, and transform. Alec has invited me into the process of leadership, and in developing myself I continue to develop others, which is important to me. His thoughtful style and approach enables me to reach my full potential professionally and personally."

"Alec is an outstanding Thinking Partner. As a creative person, I am not a fan of structure and completing administrative tasks. Alec asked me well thought out questions to challenge me in new ways to deal with the elements of my business that I used to avoid to my detriment. I am excited to have new strategies to get the ‘admin’ done while I focus on my creativity."
