I work with startup and sales leaders to help them thrive in a stressful and competitive world

Hi, I’m Scott.

I have mentored and coached dozens of people over 30+ years in IT. I’ve had various roles in Engineering, Product Management, Sales and Leadership. My passion is startups, having started or been an early employee in 10+ different companies.  

I provide executive coaching for individuals and small teams, focusing primarily on people in IT and those looking for assistance in sales, leadership and startups.

My clients look to do some of the following things:

  1. Startup founders working on product/market fit
  2. Tech founders looking to learn how to do founder-led sales
  3. Sales Execs looking for more consistency in their results
  4. Sales Leaders who want to bring out the best in their team

I have seen it all – I’ve been laid off, fired, seen a company go out of business. I’ve also seen companies grow and thrive. I’ve worked for the largest companies in the world (AT&T, GE) and the smallest startups (more than 10). I’ve been a Software Engineer, Product Manager, Sales Engineer, Sales Leader and CEO. 

In every situation, there’s an unlimited supply of stress, questions and uncertainty. There’s also just the simple need to share the thousands of thoughts going through your head with someone who has not just experienced it themselves, but has the empathy, skills and ability to listen, coach and advise. 

Over the years I have learned to become more self-aware, and to recognize every challenge as a learning and growth opportunity. We all make mistakes, and I have found that with an open mind, they help us become the best version of ourselves.

We all have the answers inside of us to make us happy, fulfilled and successful. My job as your coach is to help you explore the issues and find the answers that are best for you.

You can learn more about me here. Whether you are looking for coaching or just have questions, please introduce yourself. Meeting a new person each day is the greatest gift. I look forward to meeting you.

Scott is my secret weapon

I was fortunate to begin working with Scott a few months ago and my only regret is that it didn’t happen sooner. His insight and feedback has already changed how I approach my work, and I’ve found his advice to be immediately applicable for both general sales strategy and deal-specific tactics. As an experienced leader and mentor, he’s helped me address my weaknesses & blind spots in a way that is simply not possible with a standard sales training program. Scott is my secret weapon.

If starting a company is like a storm, Scott is the lighthouse

Scott has the unique ability to break down complex problems into core elements, so that you can see the answer for yourself. My co-founder and I leave each session knowing where we need to go.

Scott helped me get rid of my “head trash”

Ironically, I began working with Scott right before being part of a layoff. Our coaching took a necessary turn to navigate my employment journey, made difficult by the economic downturn, cyclical nature of my industry, and my own ambiguity. Scott helped me get rid of my “head trash” and get clear and focus on my priorities and targets. He really listened and was like a mirror – reflecting back what I may have felt, but needed the constructive space to see and know it. He gave me space to chart my path forward, with direct and gentle guidance along the way. I have since landed a role at a great organization where I am already excelling and can refocus on my leadership and career goals.

If you’re looking for a partner in your professional and personal growth, I highly recommend working with Scott.

Working with Scott as a coach has been one of the best business decisions I have made recently. His business knowledge and sales know-how are exceptional and I learn a lot in each of our coaching sessions. He is also a good listener and takes the time to really get to know his coaching clients so that his input is valuable and tailored to your individual needs. If you’re looking for a partner in your professional and personal growth, I highly recommend working with Scott.
