Patrick focuses on the specific needs of the startup executive being coached. Patrick’s approach is very direct and he focuses primarily on organization process, decision-making, leadership, and setting a cohesive strategy for the organization. As a seasoned CEO himself, Patrick has been in the seat as an entrepreneur and startup CEO. As such, he can provide guidance and be a “sounding board” for the executive based on “walking in the shoes” of the CEO for many years. Executive coaching rates are typically $500 per hour, and are typically one hour per week either by phone or in person. Engagements last anywhere from three to six months, depending upon the goals and objectives of the project.
