    I originally conceived this as a way to make executive coaching available to local small business owners and non-profit leaders who were ready to make the personal effort but weren’t in a position to make the financial investment of a regular executive coaching engagement. But any qualified leader can take advantage of it, and for those that do, Leadership Momentum Coaching offers exceptional value.

    Your investment: $3500
    Half to a Quarter of the cost of a typical
    executive coaching engagement.
    What's the difference?
    Hillsborough and Chapel Hill Carrboro Chamber of Commerce members receive a 10% Discount if enrolled by May 31st

    Leadership Momentum Coaching is more structured, with a specific focus, and a set number of coaching sessions.
    Executive Coaching engagements outside of this package typically offer a more in-depth assessment session (Discovery Day), cover a broader and more flexible range of leadership and organizational issues, and includes unlimited access via phone or email. The scope of these Executive Coaching engagements are established on a project basis, with an investment typically 2 to 4 times that of Leadership Momentum Coaching.
    Both include identical quality of coaching and attention to achieving results.
