Develop Action Plans and Solutions

Dr. David 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 in your career.

Powerful coaching conversations empower you to develop strong, practical action plans for successful career development.

These coaching conversations are deepened by data from behavioral style assessments (such as Myers-Briggs and Career Leader), as well as 360-degree feedback from colleagues and other 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 career coaching engagement.
