Executive Leadership Coaching
We will identify your inherent leadership skills and cultivate them into your authentic leadership style. Combining the structure of the Saturn Leadership 360 and the measurable progress it provides when we finish, you will have a leadership foundation that you can build on for the rest of your life.
Experienced founders know that their success and happiness is inextricably linked to the quality of their co-founder relationship(s). Proactively seeking coaching to develop your co-founder relationship is the best way to prevent breakdowns and leverage the power of your partnership.That said, I’m most often called in to resolve active co-founder conflicts. I pride myself in my ability to help co-founders resolve their issues and establish their best working relationships ever. But sometimes, it’s just too late, and I am called in to negotiate an amicable separation to avoid a legal battle and minimize the impact on company culture.
Co-founder or full exec team offsites are by far the fastest way to resolve friction, build trust, and align on the most difficult decisions.
In just two days you will accomplish what would take months in your office setting. My offsite design is focused on achieving measurable results. For this reason, I conduct 1-1 prep-work with each individual, as well as a follow-up group meeting 10 days after the offsite to ensure the decisions have been translated into an execution plan that everyone is bought into.
If you are curious to discover what an offsite can do for you and your team, book your free consultation with me now.
Recommendations from my LinkedIn page
"As co-founder of a startup that has grown from 40 to 140 people over the last two years, my role and challenges are constantly changing. Where Michael helps me the most is understanding where I want to be, what I can do and where I need support as my role shifts..."
"What I like about Michael's style is that he really gets into the psychological stuff with you. What I found most helpful is that he would help me look under the hood in my brain and emotions so I could understand WHY I was making the decisions I was making or why I felt the way I did. What I appreciated most is that he is an advocate for YOU, not just for your company's bottom line. He taught me to work in a much more sustainable way and I'm much happier and healthier now."
"Michael has really helped Taulia’s C-team up-level our leadership skills by teaching us improved communication and innovative collaboration practices and transforming any unhealthy personality traits. Leading a company that grows 2-3x year over year puts a lot of stress on the team. Since starting with Michael two years ago I see how much more high functioning we are as a team, despite the stress. Personally I appreciate how Michael has helped me increase my emotional intelligence and as a result I believe I may have become a better CEO."
"As the CEO of a venture-backed start-up, I need to make sure that every dollar and every hour spent by me and my team is put to good use. I estimate the time and money spent with Michael saved us at least 1000x his price in potential mistakes. When I had a situation that I know needed to be handled with the utmost integrity and care, I relied on Michael to help me and my co-founders. It was frictionless and everyone ended up far better than we started."
"Being a co-founder of a venture funded startup has been an intense, exciting, and (often) humbling experience. I consistently lean on Michael to provide fresh perspectives, new mindsets, and actionable approaches that have kept me going through some challenging circumstances. I have come to trust him with even the most delicate challenges."
