Our Firm

We are seasoned, senior-level executive coaches who work with senior management teams to create breakthroughs in performance. Being average or even above-average are not enough in today’s economy. You have to excel and to do that, you have to be exceptional at the individual and executive team level.

We are devoted to helping our clients become great. We achieve this through:

  • Proven processes adapted to each client’s needs;
  • Powerful proprietary methods and tools; and
  • The exceptional experience and talent of our people

Our consultants began their careers as mainstream business professionals who later transitioned into transformational consulting. This gives our consultants an advantage in understanding business and management issues and broadens the range of issues that we can address. In addition, we are trained in the latest methods for surfacing underlying issues and roadblocks—both individually and organizationally—and then helping our clients move past them. Finally, our partners are thought-leaders who have published several books on new management thinking for the fast-paced and chaotic 21st century economy.

We provide our clients with new ways of thinking, leading, and working that enable breakthroughs in performance and create a new standard of managerial excellence.

Our Vision

The business world has become a very strange place where much of what we learned about management and creating business success no longer works. In response to these changes, we foresee the rise of a new worldview about the nature of business, the organizational characteristics that lead to long-term success, and what is required of leaders and management teams. ISEE will be on the forefront of the effort to define and create this new world of work.

How will companies prosper in a world where competitive advantage lasts for no more than a couple of years and for as little as a couple of months?

Business management was designed for building and defending large companies through economies of scale and barriers to entry in a world where change occurred slowly and there were but a few, well-known competitors. None of those assumptions are valid today. The demand for new management practices—new ways to think about the nature of business, strategy, leadership, and organizational design—has never been greater.

Companies must learn to challenge their deepest assumptions, and leaders must have the knowledge, skills, and leadership presence to guide them through the process.

ISEE Global, Inc. is committed to helping leaders create great companies for the new economy. We focus on only a few offerings and we do them exceptionally well:

  • The Exceptional Leader Coaching Program – Helping executives and other high-potentials in the succession line raise their leadership to a whole new level of effectiveness and impact
  • Executive Team Development and Strategic Alignment – Working with executive teams to align behind a new vision or strategy and dramatically improve their ability to team together and align the organization on the strategy
  • Emotional Intelligence Training – Delivering high-impact training programs for developing the key aspects of emotional intelligence: stress management and composure, self awareness, influencing skills, empathy, and self-responsibility. Available for every level of leadership in the organization

Our Philosophy

WE BELIEVE in greatness. There is tremendous value in striving for greatness. It lifts the spirit, it inspires people to take risks and go beyond their comfort zones, and it stimulates creativity and accomplishment beyond what most people imagined was possible. Our commitment to you is to help you see your potential for greatness, and then fulfill it!

WE BELIEVE in breakthroughs. Anyone who makes a sincere commitment can create breakthroughs for themselves and for their organizations. Our job is to help people see a greater potential for themselves and then support them through their journey of growth and achievement.

WE BELIEVE in learning. The ability to learn—to let go of outdated ideas and understand things in new ways—is essential to success in a rapidly changing environment. Through our approach to Breakthrough Thinking we help our clients develop new strategies for learning and adapting. We learn along with our clients. Part of the value we expect from our clients is to learn from their knowledge, insights, and perspectives, just as clients learn from ours.

WE BELIEVE in empowering our clients to help themselves. For this reason, our approach is highly leveraged. We bring only a very few highly experienced consultants in at selected intervals throughout the process to provide education, coaching, and processes. Our clients are expected to do the rest, thus building the knowledge, confidence, and ownership that will enable them to succeed long after we have gone.

WE BELIEVE in integrity and authenticity. Our clients find our honesty and genuineness refreshing—with us, what you see is what you get. We also value the importance of keeping our word and keeping the confidences of our coaching clients. We ask our clients to tell us the truth, and we honor that trust with a pledge to keep our conversations confidential.

WE BELIEVE in walking-the-talk. We expect the same of ourselves that we ask of our clients. When we ask our clients to take difficult actions or go beyond their comfort zone or to develop new mind-sets and practice new skills, you can trust that we have gone there before you and know what it is like.

WE BELIEVE in having fun. Life is just too short not to, don’t you think?
