I am a Certified Professional Coach working with executives and mangers to improve leadership skills, abilities, and performance. I give my clients a more tailored and well-rounded solution for personal and professional development.
What I do
I work primarily one-on-one with executives.
I help you navigate self-identified challenges that are or might become, barriers to personal success. We work together to find those things necessary to improve individual performance and then develop an action plan to get to the next level.
As the client, you identify your specific needs or areas of concern. Our goal is to strengthen your individual skills and abilities for long-term personal growth and daily success. The emphasis here is on a relationship-centered approach that helps you add more tools to your toolbox to achieve long-term goals.
Recent examples of executive coaching engagements include overcoming time management challenges (distraction and procrastination), bolstering decision-making processes, developing empathy, becoming an adaptive leader, and strengthening communication skills.
Our work together
While each engagement is defined by you, the client, the typical engagement looks like this: After an initial kick-off call, our work together is through Zoom (twice per month), email, and Slack.
We commit to a minimum of six months together to accomplish the goals you define. The work takes a different shape for each client, depending on the individual client’s goals and objectives.
It’s important to remember that the bulk of the work falls to you. My role is to provide guidance to help you achieve a defined goal.
I work best with...
As an executive coach, I typically work with entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs, and nonprofit leaders who have 10-50 employees.
In these earlier stages of growth, leaders and teams navigate multiple transition points where my background and experiences provide a unique perspective on the challenges of leadership.
As a consultant, I work with organizations of all sizes. Coaching is different from consulting. If you’re interested in consulting, please visit David Harkins Company.
Interested in working together?
Because I only take a few coaching clients at a time, openings at any given time are limited. Sometimes, there’s a short waiting list.
