Helping You.

I have been helping coaches with their personal development since 2017 and in a variety of professional roles since 2012. Having the one-to-one conversations and zooming in on your individual development is the highlight of my day! 

 

It took me a while to figure it out, but helping coaches and leaders is my true purpose, and I love it! 

Every Private Coaching session is different since every human being is different. The variation between coaches and the topics that we discuss in our sessions is one of the reasons why I never get tired of helping coaches like yourself. 

 

Following the progression of coaches through the Private Coaching program and seeing the rapid development that takes place between our sessions is a truly rewarding feeling. I'm always looking forward to the next session! 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Personal Coach Development Plan

    The starting point of the Private Coaching relationship is you and your Personal Development. It doesn't matter where you currently are or where you want to go. My role is to help you reach your goals as soon as possible and limiting the amount of mistakes you make on your journey. Your first assignment as my mentee will be to fill out your own Personal Coach Development Plan (PCDP) to give me an idea of where you want to go.

  • Life Goals

    Many coaches and leaders have a pretty good idea of what they want to do and which levels they want to reach in their professional careers. However, if your life is not balanced and you let what you do dictate who you are, you are a train-wreck in the making. This is the reason why we in our Private Coaching relationship will discuss your overall Life Goals and work with a balanced approach to your Personal Development.

  • Continual Development

    When you first start your Private Coaching sessions you are at a certain place in your Personal Development. As we work together and I give you feedback in our sessions or via e-mail between sessions, your development will move you to a different place. My goal as your personal coach is to improve you to a level where you no longer need my services. Until we reach that point I will adapt to your growth and make sure that you have a continual personal development.

"Life is short, and your time for learning and creativity is limited. Without any guidance, you can waste valuable years trying to gain knowledge and practice from various sources. Instead, you must follow the example set by masters throughout the ages and find the proper mentor. The mentor-protégé relationship is the most efficient and productive form of learning. The right mentors know where to focus your attention and how to challenge you. Their knowledge and experience become yours. They provide immediate and realistic feedback on your work, so you can improve more rapidly. Through an intense person-to-person interaction, you absorb a way of thinking that contains great power and can be adapted to your individual spirit. Choose the mentor who best fits your needs and connects to your Life's Task. Once you have internalized their knowledge, you must move on and never remain in their shadow. Your goal is always to surpass your mentors in mastery and brilliance."

ROBERT GREENE - From the book Mastery

...We all need some guidance from time to time either in our personal life or in our professional life.

 

The challenge of being a coach is that it's a somewhat insular position. Often you are surrounded by colleagues who, although being friendly can also be your competitors.

 

This makes it very hard to find someone to confide in that's in your immediate surrounding, since that might come back to bite you...

 

If you want to focus on your personal development as a coach there are so many different sources of information and courses to choose from, how do you know where to start? 

 

This is where the Private Coaching program can help. By having someone you can confide in and help guide your personal development you gain a competitive advantage in your career and increase the chance of becoming the best version of yourself.

WHAT COACHES SAY

I was so eager to improve my coaching and sought guidance. Meeting Marcus changed everything for me, you immediately see how passionate he is about helping coaches improve. Working with Marcus, has helped me step out my comfort zone and improve my coaching, the way I view football and the way I approach coaching has improved massively with the mentoring.

Vince Laleau

YOUTH COACH,

SPACECOAST SC

The Private Coaching Program has been a great success. Marcus has been an exceptional mentor to me. In a football (soccer) world where seemingly every training session can be Googled and the subjectivity of coaches can be copied, Marcus has helped me grow in objectivity of coaching football. As a young coach, I would not have gained the objective knowledge of coaching and leading a football team if not for the mentoring of Marcus. His constant support has been invaluable.

HEAD COACH,

NYACK COLLAGE

 

Being mentored by Marcus has been one of the more rewarding experiences I have had as a coach. Most mentoring zooms in to discuss only tactics at the expense of zooming out to best understand the actual situation. While tactics where a component of our conversations, Marcus first zoomed out to better understand me in order to tailor the conversation to my particular external factors and my situations. Marcus presented me with different ways to approach an issue and often times offered solutions I had not considered. His help was invaluable and is recommended for anyone with a desire to be a top coach and more importantly a top person.

  • E-mail feedback

    Between your private coaching sessions we can bounce e-mails back and fourth on the topic that we are working on. That way you can get some feedback quicker and before the next session.

  • Life Goals Review

    To make sure that your personal development is aligned with your life in general, we can conduct a Life Goals review. Balance is the key to success. 

DIFFERENT PATHWAYS

  • Every Relationship is Different

    There are as many different pathways to the Private Coaching program as there is coaches. It would be foolish to have a one-size fits all approach to mentoring since that is the opposite of what the purpose is. You and your situation is unique and that is the starting point for our relationship and the pathway that you will take. 

  • Short Term vs Long Term

    It's not easy to now whether this is the right step for you in your personal development as a coach. Therefore you will have different options when you start your Private Coaching adventure in terms of packages. You can do one single session or choose a discounted option of multiple sessions at once that are paid in monthly installments. No package is more than a five session commitment since we need to evaluate before choosing to continue or not.

  • Limitations

    The most important thing for me before accepting an application to the Private Coaching program is that I feel certain I can help you. If there's a slight doubt in my brain I will not accept your application. There are various reasons for why your application might not be accepted such as for example; time constraints on my part, too many clients, your situation, logistical problems etc. However busy you are or think I am, always apply for the Private Coaching program first, and we'll discuss the challenges later.
