The BEL experience has greatly benefited several of the senior managers at APTN this year. Doug and his team have provided us with a learning experience that has helped us look at issues and challenges in a new light. The interaction with other key players in the industry was also a superb learning tool. I have since asked Doug to coach our Senior Management Team through our strategic planning process and the team is now richer thanks to his knowledge, experience and expertise. The rest of the senior management team will attend Banff 's North American Television Executive course next year.

The Banff Executive Leadership team provides practical and concrete tools to succeed in today's business environment.  I especially appreciated Doug's focus on proactively shaping the future vision of a corporation as compared to reacting to the current environment.

It can be lonely and confusing sometimes in senior leadership roles. You can't always share your concerns, or ask your peers/boss for assistance. In addition, when you know you could use some personal and professional development, you can't always get away for a long course. Finally, it can be revitalizing to have someone you trust to talk to, bounce off ideas, and help you 'tune-up' your thinking and personal performance. Enter the concept of executive coach.

From another perspective, it is becoming more and more difficult to find and retain the 'perfect' executive. For those that have many excellent attributes, yet a few aspects that are threatening their success or advancement; targeted and sustained development assistance may be the answer.

As a Board chair or Board member the same challenges can also exist.

As a CEO or Board Chair, you might also use a trusted resource to help you enhance the performance and collaboration of your leadership team or Board.

Executive Coaching, and now Board Coaching, is becoming one of the most important options in executive development and performance improvement. And, it just might be the most strategic choice you could make for your career or leadership team.

Call Doug Macnamara directly for a confidential discussion of these options.
