I've experienced the profoundly transformational power of executive coaching in my own career and personal life, and believe the highest service I can do is to bring that same systematic transformation to the careers and lives of others.
I am a perpetual student and teacher of methods for creating change and maintaining resilience. I have studied, applied and succeeded with various methods for driving and surviving difficult change.
Until founding (X)form, my professional application of these skills was as a leader in the business world. Now, as coach and advisor, my sole focus is to bring these methods to the lives and businesses of others.

Can you imagine Serena Williams or Michael Phelps without a coach?
There is no professional athlete who does not consider their coach to be crucial in helping them get to and stay at the top of their game. They would never try to explain why a close, ongoing partnership with a coach (or team thereof) isn't necessary!
It's common to find executives and other leaders to be vocal about their dedication to highest performance and continuous self-improvement who are not invested in a close partnership with an executive coach.
Of course, there are many reasons proposed to defend the disconnect!
This disconnect, and all the insufficient explanations for why it exists, is an utterly compelling dynamic that excites and energizes us.
If you agree this disconnect should not exist: we'd love to hear from you.
If you feel you can explain why this disconnect is reasonable: we'd love to hear from you.
