Individual Coaching with Lary Kirchenbauer

I think we all recognize that change is the only thing that doesn’t change. If the recent COVID pandemic doesn’t perfectly highlight that condition, I don’t know what does.

Leaders encounter change at every turn, which is why having an unbiased observer at your side can help you gain the perspective that is tough to get when you’re alone with your thoughts.

My work with CEO’s and other senior executives helps them gain consistent focus on their goals and objectives and holds them accountable for the improved performance they expect from themselves and their companies.

Lary is one of the brightest and most energetic professionals with whom I have ever worked. His skills in dealing with privately held firms and the aggressive and creative solutions make him a valuable asset to any business.

The Individual Leadership Coaching Program

I know that over the years, my conversations and candid feedback have made an important difference in the success of many CEOs and senior leaders.

Tell me what’s on your mind and let’s think about it together.

It’s one of the ways I can provide the greatest help to middle market and family-owned businesses, and I want to help as many leaders as I can.

If you'd like to receive more information before setting up a call, tell us where to send it and we'll get it out to you right away.

    Why am I doing this?

    For one thing, I’ve missed those moments when I see senior leaders find and clarify a path forward to address a vexing challenge they’ve identified.

    I miss those intimate conversations, all too rare in the lives of senior leaders, when they can be themselves, speak frankly without being judged and genuinely tackle the issues facing them and their organizations.

    With 40+ years of leadership experience, there’s not much I haven’t seen … and yet so many layers to the challenges we all face as leaders remain. Nonetheless, it’s still very rewarding to help leaders grapple with those issues.

    If you’d like to discuss this program, you can schedule a call to discuss it … at no cost or obligation. When you do, I’ll send you some additional information to explain the program.

    I’ve watched Lary coach CEOs and other senior leaders for years and there is no doubt in my mind… He’s the real deal. Lary has the depth and breadth of experience to help his clients with any challenge they might be facing. I recommend Lary wholeheartedly.

    A Post-Pandemic World?

    Although it appears the worst days of the pandemic are behind us, leaders will continue to face the vexing demands related to workplace safety, remote work and attracting and retaining superior talent … much of it in addition to the never-ending challenges of building a successful organization.
