One-on-One Coaching

Start-up Founder

Investor group pushing for more experienced leadership to level-up.

Time for a bold change.

Who

Though it was his baby, his new company, his idea, a founding chief executive was soon faced with some major challenges, including insistence from his board members and venture capitalists that a CEO with significant experience was necessary for long-term success. How could he stay meaningfully engaged with these pending changes?

 

How

While he understood the importance of what his partners were telling him, the fear of no longer having an integral place in his own company was not only confusing, but immobilizing. Clearly, he needed answers and some peace-of-mind — which we found by assessing his behavioral style, strengths and weaknesses, and blind spots. Interviews with key board members and staff also gave us invaluable insight. And extensive work challenging his decisions, asking poignant questions, brainstorming ideas, inspiring new perspectives, evaluating his options and opportunities, and prioritizing his interests, health, and life legacy all created a clear path to action.

Success

With more clarity and direction than he had enjoyed in a very long time, this reinvigorated founder was able to make sound, strategic decisions that not only were best for him, but for his investors and the company. He found the right CEO to replace him. He was able to create a new role for himself that felt good and maintained his value to the company. He made exercise and his health a priority, which improved his energy levels and state-of-mind. And his decisions eventually led to successfully selling the company even amid a difficult economic turndown.
