Executive Coaching

America's Most Qualified Workplace Experts

All coaching is, is taking a player where he can't take himself.
—Bill McCartney

Everyone needs someone to push them and challenge them once in awhile. The good become great and the great become excellent by pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo. We offer individualized, targeted coaching to get employees to the next level — no matter the stage of their career.

We are all about helping professionals learn, grow, and excel. Executive coaching models frame our thinking, but we live more by a “cut to the chase and do it” approach. Our coaches encourage reflection, then action. They drive results from the very first session.

Our coaches work with professionals to:

  • Enhance their management and leadership skills
  • Lead winning teams and improve employee engagement
  • Polish their communication and presentation skills
  • Increase productivity and think strategically
  • Recruit and hire the brightest and best candidates
  • Gain insight on personal and organizational areas of growth

Each and every coaching session is different to address the individuals unique goals and areas of growth. Our coaching sessions provide distinct, tangible, and practical strategies professionals can incorporate right way.

Coaching — Our Values

We can all name that individual — the teacher, coach, or mentor — who really helped make us who we are today. At JB Training Solutions, we know coaching, and we know the significant impact that dedicated, one-on-one coaching can have in a persons career. We also recognize that every individual is different, and that there isnt a "cookie cutter" coaching philosophy that works for everyone. We realize that assessments, models, and flow charts are only helpful to a certain point and while everyone loves an inspirational quote from an ancient philosopher, individuals care more about tangible take-aways and candid advice.

We take some time to focus on self-knowledge, but ultimately, our coaching philosophy is that we are lighter on theories and heavier on practicality. We take a practical and proactive approach, and believe in coming up with tactical next steps to be a more effective and inspirational leader.

Ultimately, our coaches work with individuals to encourage self awareness, exploration, action and reflection.
