How to Choose an Optimal Thinking Coach


I’m often asked how to choose an Optimal Thinking coach, so I thought I’d put it in writing. There are basically three types of Optimal Thinking coaches:

1. Optimal Thinking Business Coach

The Optimal Thinking Business Coach typically serves small and mid-sized businesses.  The coach has expertise in maximizing start-ups, marketing, employment, management, finance, or operations. Each business coach provides support, feedback and direction to an individual or group to optimize the effectiveness of their business. Coaching can be delivered one-on-one and via in group coaching sessions. Optimal Thinking business coaches work with you in-person, via video conference or the telephone.  Our business coaches specialize in areas such as senior executive coaching, CEO coaching and leadership coaching.

2. Optimal Thinking Executive Coach

An Optimal Thinking Executive Coach serves professionals within large and mid-size corporations. We also serve emerging leaders in small businesses. Our executive coaches specialize in maximizing leadership skill development, strategic thinking, productivity, interpersonal communications, and performance management. We are also skilled in organizational savvy, team coaching, and executive presence.

Your coach serves as an objective sounding board, and equips you with best practices to deal with critical near-term issues. You develop optimum leadership and management skills that have immediate, lasting and optimal impact.

Coaches often work on needs uncovered via a 360-degree (mulit-rater) review. These assessments are conducted by our coach or your company. Optimal Thinking Executive Coaches provide inspiration, encouragement, and motivation to execute your most vital priorities and objectives.

Executive coaching often focuses on the best outcomes that can be attained in three to six months. With a focus on specific, near-term goals, executive coaching is structured to achieve optimal results in a minimum amount of time. As you achieve the outcomes, you can extend the executive coaching relationship by identifying other areas where executive coaching will best benefit you.

Executive coaching sessions in Los Angeles, onsite, video conference, or telephone occur weekly or bi-weekly.  Meetings usually last for 60 to 90 minutes. More intensive schedules include two and three hour sessions or day-long “shadowing” by the coach.


2. Optimal Thinking Life Coach

An Optimal Thinking Life Coach works with you in all areas of your life with a focus on how to best achieve your personal goals. The life coach often deals with maximizing your relationships and personal development.  Sometimes sessions focus on retirement, speaking, recovery, education, life purpose, and  goals achievement. Optimal Thinking life coaches are not therapists, because we focus on maximizing the present rather than examining the past.

Optimal Thinking Life Coaching also explores how to best resolve your self-limiting core beliefs. Coaching provides optimum structure to achieve your most important goals. One-on-one in-person in Marina del Rey, Los Angeles, via Skype or via telephone globally, you develop the action plan that defines your most important goals and the best steps to achieve them. You explore and implement the optimum strategies to overcome the obstacles in your path.

Optimal Thinking life coaching empowers you to put your best self in charge, experience the highest and fullest expression of yourself, and live your best life.
