Our coaches help clients unlock their potential and create a lasting impact within their organizations.

Optify coaches offer expertise in business, leadership, and training

We value a diversity of experiences and perspectives and seek coaches who understand the nuances of a wide variety of roles. Our coaches guide leaders through a targeted course of action that supports their individual development and goals while aligning with the organization's strategic needs.

All Optify coaches are trained through ICF accredited training programs and undergo a rigorous vetting and onboarding process before joining our team.

What can you expect from our coaches?

Coaching conversations focus on performance goals and sustainable learning to increase the client's capacity for leadership. During these coaching conversations, the coach may:

  • Serve as a sounding board by listening intently, asking tough questions, and sharing new perspectives.
  • Share best practices and experience gained from working in similar roles and industries.
  • Provide feedback gathered through interviews from colleagues or through assessments.
  • Help clients use their job as a training ground, drawing leadership lessons from day-to-day actions.
  • Offer a wealth of resources about the discipline of leadership, including articles, quotes, exercises, or books.
  • Help clients uncover the assumptions, values, and attitudes that either serve their leadership goals — or get in the way of success.
  • Co-create between-meeting practices to deepen clients’ self-awareness and groove new behaviors.

Our Coaches

Our coaches come from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, but they all share a few core traits. Each is a seasoned professional with expertise not just in coaching and training, but in business as well. And, each is committed to partnering with clients to build their capacity to lead others and impact their organizations.
