What is Executive Coaching?

Over the past 15 years, Doug Van Dyke has coached hundreds of professionals in a wide-range of industries, with topics ranging from communication to leadership to sales to entrepreneurship.

  • They are voracious learners
  • They love to grow their skills and abilities
  • They desire to apply new concepts and skills that they learn in order to benefit their performance and/or the performance of others  
  • They are open to the interaction involved in the coaching process  
  • They enjoy smiling while they learn!

Time Management

Case Study: Sysco Foods

 Sysco Foods was looking to help their leaders improve efficiency, increase productivity, and to get better organized. In a nutshell, they were seeking a management coaching program that would give their leaders, at a variety of levels, fresh time management tools and concepts that would somehow manufacture time for their people. Importantly, they were looking for a concise program whose deliverables would stick!

Sysco’s Vice President of HR contacted Doug Van Dyke regarding his Building a Powerful Day program. Over the course of a few hours, Doug worked with Sysco’s leaders to improve their ability to manage time. In addition, the leaders were coached in such a manner that they could easily present the tools and techniques they learned to others in the organization. One of their managers summed up his experience this way:

“Excellent – great information that I can put to use right away. Doug is energetic and fun, plus he has an uncanny ability to transfer knowledge.”

One of Humana’s sales reps explained his results this way:

Workplace Collaboration

Case Study: Landmark

 Landmark Engineering & Surveying had two leaders whose success was dependent upon successful collaboration with each other. Each leader was bright, capable, experienced, and well liked by their teams. The problem? Their business relationship was acceptable, but not optimal. In order to solve their collaboration issue, Landmark called Doug Van Dyke regarding executive leadership coaching. Doug was the facilitator as they engaged in his working agreement process. The result? An abundance of deliverables:

  • Two leaders who collaborated more effectively – beginning the day after the working agreement process began!
  • Less tension in the office
  • Increased productivity, which translated to higher sales and richer profits

The president of the company shared the following comment with us:

“Doug is a fantastic executive coach and works well with people at all levels of an organization. We have used his service for individual management coaching, teambuilding and business operation ideas. He is enthusiastic and truly cares that his help is appropriate for the situation. I have used other coaches and Doug is clearly the best of the lot. As a past TEC member I know I receive greater value from Doug while expending less time.
