"Having lost sight of our goals, we redouble our efforts"

Updated: Feb 20

In a nutshell, this quotation from Mark Twain makes clear what executive coaching is all about!


When confronted with challenges, we usually rely on test-and-tried responses. Which is not neccessarily bad, as any test-and-tried procedure for sure is quick and often response-time matters.

But being alert pays only half the rent if your reaction is not up to the challenge.


High-quality coaching enhances your resilience and multiplies the options you can choose from.


  • Like how a highly respected doctor practices medicine, good executive coaches rely on experience: both of us at Twisters Management Consulting LLC have managed teams of up to 35 direct reports, amounting to about 25 years of joint leadership practice.

  • Good coaching needs a well researched map that gives you guidance during the coaching process: our guidance very often is related to evidence-based management and applied psychology as well as tools that have been developed by well known players, such as the "Center for Creative Leadership".

  • Be aware that the map is not the territory! Qualified coaches have learned to go beyond the tools and drive the coaching process by asking the right questions: inquiry is what really provokes new leadership activities helping a coaching client step by step to reach out of his or her comfort zone and to acquire refined and enriched practices.

"From diagnostics to road-mapping to goal-setting, and implementation-support, executive coaching is all about the right mix of mindfulness, respect, and tipping-point challenge for any coachee."
