Empowering Executives and Professionals with Stress, Burnout, and Other Mental Health Challenges to Lead Effectively, Grow Their Businesses, and Realize Their Goals
High-performing professionals and executives are so busy that they may not be able to commit to a long-term executive coaching engagement at certain points in their career. Fortunately, it is possible to benefit in important ways from a very brief (even 1-session) coaching process. In my years of practice, I’ve learned that one highly powerful conversation often can help people to shift their perspective, embrace positive new ways of thinking, and commit to implementing new strategies for success immediately.
In some cases, I’ve learned this lesson in the course of discussing the prospect of coaching with someone inquiring about my professional services. It’s been astonishing to see that just that single conversation sometimes has led the person to amazing insights and a commitment to making major changes in their professional and personal lives. Some of those individuals have been so pleased with the conversation that they didn’t feel the need to hire me or any another coach or consultant at all. Others have decided to build on the power of that first conversation by entering into a longer term coaching engagement with me, in which they continue to develop their leadership skills, grow their businesses, and feel more fulfilled in their careers
Leading Minds is sensitive to how busy you are and how important it is to identify and implement new strategies ASAP. I am available to have this powerful conversation (up to 1 hour) in person, over the telephone, or via Skype video conferencing. The fee for this brief, targeted, and potentially transformational experience is $450. For further information, call me at (617) 932-1548 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Develop Action Plans and Solutions
Dr. Brendel uses a wide range of effective coaching strategies with clients. One of these approaches is Active Inquiry, in which he asks the client a series of thought-provoking and transformative questions. When you reflect upon and respond to these questions, you realize the inner strengths and assets that you have to find solutions and move forward. Powerful coaching conversations empower you to develop strong, practical action plans for success.
These coaching conversations are deepened by data from behavioral style assessments (such as the Myers-Briggs) and 360-degree feedback from colleagues and other key stakeholders. All Leading Minds coaching engagements conclude with a strong sustainability plan that ensures ongoing development and future success. Dr. Brendel remains available as needed for ongoing coaching needs beyond the conclusion of the formal engagement.

I think he has a nice interpersonal style, perhaps one that results from his clinical training. It can be a nice counterpoint to the often aggressive, extroverted nature many business people have.
