Expert-Coach.org is a Vietnam-era US Army Veteran-owned firm.
Unlike many Coaching Firms, Expert-Coach features a comprehensive Strategic Human Capital Development Process. We simplify it to asking and answering the three major strategic questions of work, indeed of life:
- Where are we?
- Where do we want to be?
- How do we get there?
Not unlike the Physician who orders tests and asks questions, then develops and implements a treatment plan, our Copyrighted Expert-Coach.org Professional Coaching Model™ is similar in helping people achieve their mission(s), and their potential.
Focus is a “Ready-Aim-Fire” approach that improves outcomes:
Ready = “Framing the Issues” Research, Triangulation, Calibration
Aim = Creative Problem-Solving and Plan Design
Fire = Execution of the Plan, with in-progress Adjustments
Success in Business, Leadership & Management, Career and Life brings on more challenges – different ones – not fewer challenges. In the world of competitive athletics, the professional or Olympic-calibre athlete gets more coaching, not less, as she or he attains higher and higher performance levels.
The same challenges exist in organizational, business, leadership & management, career and life, except that the pace moves faster and faster. It accelerates!
Long regarded as “the Gold Standard of Business Leadership Coaching,” Vistage groups are targeted for C-level business leaders heading enterprises with revenues or market value in the $10mil to $500mil range, sometimes higher. Using a format of full-day monthly strategic mastermind peer advisory roundtable session, credentialed Vistage facilitators like Sam Waltz lead groups in their geography and their industry and provide one-on-one coaching.
A credentialed ValueBuilder Coach, Sam Waltz works with C-level leaders whose businesses are in the $3mil to $50mil revenue range who expect to approach an exit or transition in the next 3-5-7 years. Objective of ValueBuilder coaching is to improve and “fine-tune” the business to maximize its valuation, leveraging its “8 key drivers”, and its services are delivered via 2hour and 3hour monthly strategic mastermind peer advisory roundtables (both digital and in-person), ongoing one-on-one coaching, and project-based assignments. Expert-Coach.org offers a variety of multi-discipline groups within a footprint to vertical industry mastermind groups convened via Zoom-type digital, with an annual retreat, and it will assemble “custom groups” at the request of a Client.
The pace of change in Organizations and Business is so fast that too often it seems almost impossible to keep up, or to know what you – and others – feel you should know at any given point. When you have the luxury of time, perhaps you go off to a graduate course, or an industry workshop. Without that, you may need – and benefit – from a crash course in the Topic du Jour or a focused and extended effort in a particular area. Two of his clients in public affairs / issues management have gone on to become CEOs of globally known Fortune 100 companies, another has become a Governor, yet another was among the top 15 highest-compensated university presidents, and many others have launched and run entrepreneurial and SMBs (small- and mid-sized businesses).
(4) Career Coaching
The challenges of Career Management, and growth in one’s career, are constant. The value of an active, confident, experienced and trusted senior counselor and advisor at one’s side is incalculable. In the Ready-Aim-Fire approach mentioned above, it helps one be both proactive as well as react smartly and wisely to the challenges and opportunities of the day. Clients who have sought out Sam Waltz, as founder of Expert-Nation.com and its Expert-Coach.org business, range from Fortune 500 CEOs to senior-level Government leaders to heads of Faith-based organizations to senior Entrepreneurs and Family-Business owners.
Books – even entire libraries – are written on the topics of Leadership and Management. But how any one person faces these challenges are as different as who they are, where they are in their lives and careers, and the challenges of the day. Clients come to the firm “for a Reason, a Season, even a Lifetime,” valuing the facilitating counsel in an acute issues and crisis management situation to ongoing strategic business and organizational development counsel.
Balance in Life is essential to being Balanced at Work, in a Career. Chaos in one’s personal life increases the barriers to success in one’s business and career. The Firm’s principal developed in the 1990s a Copyrighted approach, based on his much acclaimed book chapter “MindMapping Your Life: Six Ways to Create Change and Get the Life You Really Want!” His approach – which he developed on the heels of a Corporate downsizing and an unexpected divorce, and published in 2000 – looks at six important areas of life and applies to them the strategic Ready – Aim – Fire approach described above:
- Spiritual: Ethical, Behavioral & Moral
- Physical: Wellness, Fitness & Nutrition
- Financial: Income, Worth & Asset Creation
- Relational: Family, Primary & Extended
- Professional: Work, Business & Career;
- Personal: Growth & Self
Some coaching needs are strategic and comprehensive. Others are focused, finite and almost tactical, looking at a variety of substantive and highly-detailed specialties. For clients with such needs, the firm relies on its Expert-Nation.com highly-select cloaked data base of some 1,500 scientists, engineers and other technical and business specialists to provide problem-solving navigation, guidance and development.
