Who needs a coach?

Show me a successful athlete, business leader, or anyone else at the top of their field, and you’ll find a great coach who supports them. Given the importance of our careers, it often surprises me how few of us make the investment in a coach. It can mean the difference between just being good at your job and making your dreams a reality.

A coach is great for:

  • Providing an objective perspective to support decision making
  • Preparing for major interviews, projects, and presentations
  • Overcoming corporate politics and challenging co-workers
  • Assessing strengths and building a development plan
  • Building a plan to get a promotion or a raise

Why work with Brendan?

I have worked for twenty-five years as an operating executive. I worked my way up the corporate ladder and made every mistake along the way. I’ve led massive teams at billion-dollar global organizations and also worked at high-paced start-ups.

Many career coaches are just former recruiters or social media influencers. They lack the practical experience you need in a coach. I can help you understand how your boss and other executives think, and build plans to make a real impact. And, if you’re already a senior executive, I can be a trusted thought partner for your most difficult decisions.

I have a very small set of coaching clients. Most have been working with me for many years. When clients have a problem on the weekend, in the middle of the night, on a holiday – I’m available to them. 

Frequently Asked Questions

A coach is like a co-pilot for your career. I offer coaching programs in 3, 6, and 12 month durations.  Coaching programs begin with a comprehensive assessment and consist of regularly scheduled coaching sessions conducted over Zoom, as well as work reviews, and emergency texts/calls. The first step is to email me and i’ll give you all the information you need to get started.

I have been leading teams for over 20 years. In my career I rose from Junior Associate all the way up to Chief Marketing Officer. What separates me from most career coaches, is that I have hands-on experience working and leading at billion dollar organizations. Surprisingly, most career coaches are very inexperienced. Many are former recruiters or relatively new in their careers. I’ve made every mistake in the book for 20 years and managed to rise to the top. I can help you do that same. 

Every coaching relationship is a little bit different. The most important thing is that we work on the things that will help you achieve the goals you have for yourself. Sometimes a good starting point is actually working through what those goals are and what they could be. Here are some examples of common coaching session topics:

  • Building a killer plan when starting a new job.
  • Navigating a difficult or contentious relationship at work.
  • Developing executive presence and presentation skills.
  • Negotiating a new job offer or salary increase
  • Building a plan to get promoted or get a raise

As a senior executive myself, I have a unique perspective to share. For emerging leaders, I can help identify areas for development and offer guidance based on my experience. For established leaders, I can be a thought partner to develop your ideas and fine tune your strategies. Most of my clients have been with me for years – we’re partners. 

Coaching programs come in 3, 6, and 12 month durations. I also offer a limited number of single coaching sessions at $500 USD per hour. Coaching programs offer a significantly discounted rate to the hourly sessions and also include full assessments, work reviews, access to my full library of tools and templates, and emergency texts/calls. The best place to start is to email me for more information.
