What is Executive Coaching?

“Executive coaches act as a coach, educator, mentor, guide, confidant, and challenger to those that carry the burden of executive-level leadership, the c-level executives as well as their direct reports,” says Jim Mitchell, corporate leadership and teaming consultant.

SHVA Leadership Advisers are trained in several different coaching styles and techniques to offer you the most excellent and in-depth opportunity available. Our coaches are trained in Whole Person Coaching®, the GROW Method®, Transformational Coaching (T-Coach), and more. Our goal is the “holistic development of the executive.”

Who Needs an Executive Coach?

Today’s executives and senior managers’ stresses are increasing. Our Executive coaches ensure you possess the skill sets and competencies to deliver high-quality products and services cost-effectively, all the while pleasing the shareholders.

Who helps the person at the top?  Executives have it rough. Employees have friends and co-workers to sound off and bounce ideas back and forth. Executives typically do not have this luxury. Our executive coaches provide a confidential sounding board and aim to build your strengths and develop an action plan for further development.

Imagine having your executive coach to work one-on-one with you.  Challenging and motivating you to be your best and providing insight, guidance, encouragement, and momentum to move forward.  Helping you to discover and capitalize on new opportunities and working with you to create an “Action Plan” that will take you from where you are now to where you NEED to be.

When Not to Hire an Executive Coach

You should not hire an Executive Coach if you fall into one of the below categories:

  • You don’t believe you need executive coaching, are not interested in feedback, and don’t think you have to change (or don’t want to).
  • Executive coaching is only a last-ditch “Hail Mary”— a token attempt to fix a failing executive who is already on their way out the door.
  • The executive is not at the appropriate level in the organization to justify the expense of coaching.

If you are interested in hiring a consultant and a coach, let us know. We can save you the double expense. If you are not sure which one you need, register for a free consultation below!

Free Executive Coaching Consultation – Virtual 

For those who are not sure that a full commitment is for them, we recommend you attend an Executive Coaching Consultation. There is no cost and no obligation!

This session is a complimentary time for you to meet Gary and discuss your needs.


Because all coaches are not the same, we strive to find the coach that will best suit your needs. If during this session, we agree that another coach or service may better serve you, we will provide you the information we have (we do not recommend specific coaches, doctors, or consultants. Instead we recommend certain types and categories that we know may be better suited to your needs).


There is no cost or obligation associated with this session. We want to help you reach your goals. We will work with you to make it happen, even if it is with another coach or consultant.

Sign up! We look forward to meeting you!
