The Difference Between a Good Executive Coach and the Best Executive Coach is Enormous

Executive coaching with an Optimal Thinking Executive Coach produces $11.95 for every dollar invested over a 12-month period. Senior executives often experience our coaching as the single most profitable investment of their entire careers.

Do you want to master the constant demands on your time? Want to maximize your emotional intelligence, interpersonal skills and executive competence? Ready to optimize leadership skills and expertly manage up, down and sideways?

There are many good executive coaches who use acceptable methodologies to achieve good results with their clients. And then there is the best executive coaching for savvy executives. Optimal Thinking Executive Coaching is unlike any other, which is why CEOs, motivated executives, and rising stars in diverse industries count on us to optimize leadership coaching.

The future belongs to those who bring their best to the present.

Why Optimal Thinking Executive Coaching Produces the Best ROI

While conducting evaluations of more than 350,000 executives in thousands of companies and numerous industries, we uncovered six common thinking patterns that sabotage performance.  For example, some executives perform exceptionally well and achieve great results for a while, but their performance is erratic. When they can’t make a difference or don’t receive enough recognition, they cycle back and forth between extraordinarily positive and extraordinarily negative performance.

Others perform exceptionally well and achieve great results, then slip into mediocre performance. They have competing internal drivers and fall prey to an internal power struggle. They have difficulty achieving noteworthy careers because they find it hard to stomach the rejection inherent in being outstanding.  They are often conflict averse.


To overcome each shackling pattern, an entirely different strategy is necessary. Applying the wrong strategy to such dramatically different individuals can produce limited or even disastrous results, especially when applied to senior executives. A one-size-fits-all prescription could severely exacerbate the issues, especially if they work together.

Instead, the Optimal Thinking executive and leadership coach helps you to overcome limitations and provides the mental technology to consistently optimize your performance. Together, you:

  • Deploy the best practices of the most successful leaders in the toughest industries
  • Develop and maintain critical leadership skills to best deal with competition
  • Align individuals and your team with the corporate values and objectives
  • Optimize trust, accountability and performance with your boss, peers and direct reports
  • Minimize “turf protection” and optimize conflict management skills
  • Optimize executive presence and people skills
  • Make your environment a “Best Place to Work”
  • Balance your personal and professional lives

Starting the Executive Coaching Optimization Process

Optimal Thinking Self-Optimization and 360 Assessments

Our corporate executive coaching program deploys proven, proprietary Optimal Thinking Self-Optimization and 360 Assessments. Over the last 27 years, with the help of senior leadership and HR (where appropriate), more than 350,000 executives and 6,500 companies have taken these assessments to uncover the coachability of coaching candidates, their strategic thinking profiles, core motivation, decision-making and communication styles. Universities and corporations all over the globe use our assessments on a daily basis. You will receive feedback and insights into your strengths, weaknesses, along with specific guidelines to maximize your performance.


Uncover Your Most Important Goals

We uncover your most important goals, where you stand in relation to them, and how your goals align with the organization’s objectives. Employing Optimal Thinking, we ask the best questions to elicit the best responses, and define the milestones and metrics to measure success. 85 percent of executive coaching sessions occur virtually (by phone or video conference). These confidential one-on-one discussions can also take place in our Marina del Rey, Los Angeles office (map) or at your office.


Observe and Evaluate Your On-Site Performance

Although rarely needed but where appropriate, we observe how you interact with superiors, peers, and direct reports in the workplace to clarify the dynamics of your executive experience.


Create Optimum Strategy and Follow Through with Tailored Metrics

Based on the assessments and our observations, together, we create your optimum strategy to achieve the best results for you and your company. We meet regularly (usually weekly) to ensure that you obtain the feedback and direction to best overcome obstacles, accomplish each milestone, and develop the optimum long-term plan to best move forward.

Your optimal thinking executive and CEO coach employs best practices to empower you to rise above poor, mediocre and even extraordinary performance. Compassionate acceptance of underlying fears reduces defensiveness and enables feedback to best support change.
