My tailored coaching program helps successful senior executives take the “leap forward” (“Vorsprung” in German) to become truly exceptional.

You’re already successful. Let’s make you even better.

Hard-hitting advice on Strategy, Leadership and Performance for B2B SaaS leaders.

In your face, twice a month.

Does this sound like you?

You’re a senior or C-Level executive, probably in a B2B SaaS/technology business. You‘re already successful. But you also believe you have the potential to become truly exceptional.

You have 10+ years of international management experience, and you’re juggling your work commitments with a busy family life.

You’re open to new ideas and perspectives and are committed to lifelong learning and improvement.

You have a strong belief in the value of working with external experts who can help you see the invisible brakes that are holding you back.

How will you benefit from working with me?
  • Open the door to rapid career advancement and stellar business results through your new status as an exceptional leader.

  • Gain recognition from colleagues as a forward-thinking leader who is committed to positive change for yourself and the organization.

  • Build and execute on a clear, future-focused action plan for making the improvements in your leadership that will deliver measurable results.

  • Gain a thorough understanding of the factors that are preventing you from fulfilling your true potential, validated by the people that work with you.

How will the engagement work?

I work with my clients individually alongside a selected group of key stakeholders, chosen together with you and whoever is sponsoring the coaching engagement.

We typically meet twice a month for 30 minutes (slightly more frequently at the start), and hold quarterly reviews which may last 60 minutes. Our goal is always maximum impact with minimum time commitment.

Your key stakeholders are involved from the outset but only need to invest a few minutes per month in helping you assess your progress.

Engagements typically last 6-12 months. Significant progress is almost always made within the first 90 days, but the biggest benefits are often realized in the second half of the process.

My primary goal is to help you become the exceptional leader you already know you can be, through a measurable and extremely time-efficient coaching process.

IT’S SIMPLE – BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT’S EASY!

What makes Vorsprung Executive Coaching™ special?
  • The process ensures a low time-investment for you and your stakeholders, and focuses on future improvement, not past mistakes.

  • Critcally, that improvement is defined by the people you work with – not by you or me.

  • According to a survey of 11,000 leaders who have been coached using this methodology, it achieves a 95% success rate in terms of measurable leadership improvement.

  • My approach is based on Marshall Goldsmith’s proven stakeholder-centered coaching methodology, widely used by the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and the World Bank.

These are the 4 key principles that will ensure you are able to make the lasting, positive change required to become a truly exceptional leader.

What is Vorsprung Executive Coaching not?

  • And it doesn’t leave you with a shelf full of coaching “materials” that you’ll never look at again.

  • It doesn’t focus on buzzwords and the latest “management thinking”.

  • It’s not theoretical “training” that has little practical application in your daily work.

  • It’s not a labor-intensive slog that adds a lot of long meetings to your already packed schedule.
