Hi I’m Eric Kaufmann

I didn’t invent executive development, but I’ve been perfecting it since 1999. My coaching is an unrelenting commitment to Conscious Leadership – driving for results AND deeply respecting the human spirit. Coaching is a structured and outcomes-led process in which we work together to clarify issues, examine limiting beliefs and generate solutions with a compelling course of action. I partner with clients to master greater responsibility and authority, streamline and crystallize decision making, and enhance leadership presence and style.


How We Work Together

My 5 step process identifies and aligns with your strengths, values, aspirations, and goals by creating a customized roadmap to delivering individual results. This process creates clarity in goals, assesses areas for improvement or refining, closes the gaps in learning, teaches new skills, and measures your results and plan for ongoing growth. Common focus areas include clarifying vision, addressing change, managing internal politics, improving team cohesion, decision-making and relationships. Take my free survey to identify your key transformative areas. Let’s work together to build your plan and take action.
