The most common area that people seek coaching for is in their work. Inevitably though, the conversations, insights, and accountability that coaching offers produce increased effectiveness and satisfaction in all facets of life.
I do individual coaching for entrepreneurs, executives, and business people as a one-on-one package. While the coaching looks at all areas of life, the objectives and assignments will center on the business results that you want to produce. This may be meeting a financial target, reducing turnover, increasing communication, or a myriad of other options.
I also offer a package for companies that want to provide coaching to their employees. I am on-call for the employees and do an hour of coaching each week with the owners and/or management team. That can look like a separate meeting or feedback on meetings that I sit in and observe. This allows me to support the environment that management is committed to having at both an organizational (top-down) and individual level.
Our initial call is always free. This call is to explore what it is that you want to get out of our time together and also a bit about how my methods can produce measurable results in your performance in the areas that matter to you. If the results you want and the promises I make line up, then we can go to work!

The other major take away I have from the time I spent with Matt is the recognition of my impact on the world around me. It’s quite easy to think you are an island but none of us are, and our actions impact those around us whether we notice or not. When I began to practice noticing this, I was shocked in good ways and bad. I realize how important it is to be responsible for the things I do and when I have not, to acknowledge it. For this, my relationships at work and at home are better, and the people in my life feel I do truly care about them, and that makes me feel incredible.
It was a gift to be able to work with Matt. I feel very grateful to both him and my employer for offering such support and being committed to having people be better for having had them in their life, that is truly exceptional.

But then things changed. My assigned Coach withdrew and a new Coach appointed – a guy named Matt Stephans. Matt was no overnight success with me (mainly because I was coming from a looooooong way back) but he showed fantastic patience and genuine understanding for the task at hand.
Matt has a thorough knowledge of the coaching process and proved to be intuitive, reliable, incisive, trustworthy, inspiring and a brilliant communicator. He loves what he does and he brought out the best in me. I am the better for having known Matt and the day will come when I will again seek his wise counsel. It is my pleasure to recommend Matt Stephans to anyone seeking a great coach.
