Henry is passionate about helping business owners to stabilize and grow their businesses through one on one executive coaching. With over 30 years of private sector experience helping companies succeed in roles such as Sales Manager, Small Business Owner, Agency Manager, Chief Financial Officer, Public Accounting-Audit and Controller as well as certifications earned as Professional Certified Coach (ICF) and GrowthWheel Certified Business Advisor, he is well positioned to engage, enlighten and empower business owners.
Henry believes the role of a coach is to partner with clients to capitalize on their strengths, elevate their thinking, expand their capacity and challenge the paradigms and mental models that may be getting in their way. Henry presents his clients with objective views of where and who they are and enables them to create and implement plans to take them where they need – and want – to be. By changing their thinking patterns, clients often find that they more effectively lead, build relationships, think strategically and communicate with others. Henry is an active listener and enthusiastic partner who listens for understanding, asks powerful questions, provides meaningful feedback and helps his clients to reframe their own thinking and behavioral patterns to achieve outstanding results.
Henry combines his broad and deep real-world business experience with the best coaching tools and methods available. He is action-oriented and shares his clients’ sense of urgency to deliver results. Henry is skilled at working with high-potential leaders who are at the top of their game and must be rapidly groomed for higher level positions as well as those who are technically skilled or strategically important but who need to be more effective with their bosses, peers or teams.
