"I consider running into you as a unique
'once-in-a-lifetime' opportunity. Makes me wonder -- how many
times we run into people, not recognizing how much more there
is to learn from them. I am glad, at least this time, I had
allowed myself to recognize the 'gold-mine', i.e., your experience
and capabilities, and am equally delighted you have responded
to my call for executive coaching assistance." Ravi Ravikumar

Are You Ready for Expert Executive Coaching?
Executive coaching is a professional, collaborative
business relationship focusing on improving an executive's leadership,
career and organizational system dynamics. The executive develops
self-management and mental toughness skills that are measurable,
and designed to achieve identified business results. This partnership
creates a confidential, objective, no-agenda, self-reflective environment
in which to explore executive issues such as personal integrity,
decision-making, vision strategies, judgment, problem-solving and
personal peak performance.

Travel Expenses For Coaching And
We handle travel differently for speaking and
training versus coaching and consulting. For speaking engagements
we can build the travel, hotel and per diem and other expenses into
a custom-quoted all-inclusive fee, or itemize these expenses separate
from the speaking fee. For this type of engagement, there is no
separate per-hour travel fee in addition to the actual travel expenses
incurred. You simply cover our actual travel expenses.
For consulting and coaching engagements, we have two tiers of travel
fees. When we drive our company car to such an engagement, our hourly
travel fee is $100/hour. We charge that because our time is valuable,
and while we are driving we are unable to do work or engage in client
coaching or consulting. In addition, there is wear and tear and
an increase in mileage on the vehicle, and gas and oil expenses.
If we travel by air, train or boat, our hourly travel fee is reduced
to $50/hour, since we do not incur expenses to our company car.
Travel From Cupertino, California
Travel time begins when we leave our offices
in Cupertino, California, and ends when we arrive at your door or
the door of the place you designate. Travel expenses include: Taxi,
shuttle, ferry, subway, train, or any other conveyance, and tolls
and parking fees. We fly out of any of three nearby Bay area airports:
San Francisco International Airport (SFO), San Jose International
Airport (SJC) and Oakland International Airport (OAK).
Travel, Other Fees And Expenses And Time Frames
Travel, hotel and per diem expenses and fees
can be handled in any of these ways: You can book and pay for our
travel expenses, we can invoice you, or we can take these expenses
and fees off any coaching package you purchase.
We serve our clients far beyond normal 9-5pm Monday-Friday working
hours, because our clients work across the US and the globe, and
because we often travel to observe and coach our clients as they
perform, compete and work. We often work early in the morning, late
at night, and on Saturday and Sunday to best meet their needs. Travel
fees are due anytime we drive our company car to you or an event
for you. When we travel to you or to an event for you by plane,
and the plane leaves after 8pm and arrives prior to 6am, there are
no travel fees assessed, since we could not be serving other clients
at those times. Travel fees are waived if any daily coaching / consulting
contract exceeds $4,000.
All Coaching Is Guaranteed
Our work is guaranteed. We want you to succeed.
Anytime you have any concerns about a coaching session simply
let us know. We will confer with you to determine how the coaching
sessions need to be adjusted, and we will make sure you are satisfied
with your progress. If you still have concerns, we will continue
to work with you toward your goals at no additional cost to you.
If, after such an additional attempt, you still believe we have
not met your objectives, we will refund your most recent coaching
package fees in total. Whenever you make the next coaching payment
that is due, this indicates that you are satisfied with the coaching
up to that point, and that you wish to continue the coaching program.
We believe in our ability to help our clients. Our commitment
to your success is total. This has been our commitment to our
clients for well over two decades.
Our Coaching Is Confidential
Trust forms the core of the coaching relationship.
We respect what you say, and will not repeat your material to anyone
or to any entity. We maintain your confidentiality
and privacy in all communications and we maintain safe and secure
written records of your account. We do not disclose that you are
a client if you do not want that known.
