Executive-Life Coaching

What is Executive-Life Coaching?

Executive-Life Coaching focuses on helping you increase efficiency, satisfaction, and effective goal-directed behaviors that lead to greater achievements across multiple aspects of your life. The skills you learn in coaching sessions will have a positive impact on your business life, community life, home life, and internal spiritual life. This differs from Executive Coaching (EC) in that EC focuses on a business agenda and how you can become a better tool for your company. While this too can lead to some impact on other aspects of your life, it is not a holistic approach. There is more to you than just business, and my goal is to help guide you in that process of comprehensive discovery and growth.

Executive-Life Coaching with Dr. Q

How it works:

Phase 1: Set up a free 15-minute phone interview. The goal of this call is for you to see if I’m a good fit for you and for me to evaluate if I can help you meet your goals.

Phase 2: Set an appointment for a full personality assessment. Some of the tools used during this session are available only to licensed psychologists.  During this phase we will also clarify who key stakeholders are in the coaching process.

Phase 3: Feedback and Goal setting. During this phase (which may last 1-2 sessions) you will receive a full report describing areas of strength and areas of potential growth. After you’ve had an opportunity to ask questions about the personality profile, we start setting clear, measurable goals.

Phase 4: Develop and implement a realistic plan(s) for meeting established goals. Ideally, the plans developed should be completed within a timeline of about 4-6 weeks.

Phase 5: Maintenance. Unless you choose to continue working on other goals, we will see less of each other during this phase and may even opt for short phone calls. The purpose of these follow-ups is to help tweak ongoing plans and make sure the desired changes are sticking.

In-person and telehealth (video/phone) coaching services are available in both English and Spanish. Contact Dr. Alexander Quiros for more information or to discuss your specific needs. 

*Please note Dr. Quiros is not accepting new clients at this time.

How does ELC differ from therapy?

There is a lot of overlap, which is why it’s helpful to select a coach with a background in counseling or psychology. Most counselors and psychologists are trained from the perspective of the medical model. In this model, the patient has symptoms of an illness, and the clinician’s job is to help them get well. However, coaching is about taking an already high-functioning, healthy individual, and making them even better. Think about the relationship between a pro athlete and their coach. The coach has experience in the sport, but despite not being as good as the pro athlete at the sport, a good coach is able to get the athlete to perform at levels they couldn’t achieve on their own.
