The value-add of the coach is to help the client to understand what more is possible for them. Most people are really good at underestimating what they are capable of. I like helping people to find the things that matter to them and then bring that to life.  I like to see their surprise when they do something they haven’t done before.  I enjoy helping people to fulfill their potential.”

Frank has been a manager and a leader in many settings.  He brings a big inventory of experiences to his work as a coach, which his clients often find useful.  Frank has a strong entrepreneurial background.  He has worked in a start-up company and run an angel group that invests in startups. Frank enjoys bringing forward ideas and experiences that can be helpful to his clients.  

Clients often choose Frank when looking for a coach with experience helping leaders who must handle a radically new set of responsibilities, make significant changes in how they operate as leaders and or translate their value from an “old climate” into a new one, whether a new organization or new conditions within an existing company.
