Overview

Business Leader to Patty in 2003: "What do you do?"

Patty: "I’m a coach."

Business Leader: "Cool! What sport?"

This conversation used to happen all the time. But in the years since, more and more business leaders have experienced executive coaching, which has become a thing. A valuable and professional thing.

Now the question business leaders regularly ask Patty is, "How do I learn to do what you do?"

That’s why in 2008 she launched the SeattleCoach Professional Training and Development Program, hosting hundreds of entrepreneurs, executives, and organizational leaders as they’ve learned to "do the craft and be the coach."

Today, when you search "SeattleCoach" you get Pete Carroll, Coach of the Seahawks. And you get Patty.

The Essential Coaching Leader is her introduction to a way of leading that finds its evidence and examples in neuroscience, in 21st-century business effectiveness, in history, and even in good theology. It is a way of leading that is both ancient and new.

The five essentials found in The Essential Coaching Leader will help you explore and begin to practice coaching leadership in this time of relentless and historic change.
