In a corporate environment where every investment has to be justified, Tommy was able to prove the unquantifiable value of employee well-being through his skilled coaching. Tommy is one-of-a-kind...

About

My name is Tommy.

After 12 years working and leading teams at companies like Google and Trimble, I created a unique private coaching practice focused on growing people managers to the next level as coach-based leaders.

Before coaching, however, I was a people manager myself. I was quite effective because I drew on my experience to mentor and guide my team. No one on my team did work that I hadn’t already done at some point. I was a mentor-based manager.

Over time, however, my team (and their tasks) became more sophisticated. And my effectiveness grew thin as I had less experience to draw upon. So when I discovered “coaching” as a way to empower my team to derive their own answers (instead of being the guy with all the answers), developing coaching skills was an obvious next step for me.

It worked…and then some!

Using the Energy Leadership™ approach, my team (and other co-workers that I coached) increased their levels of consciousness, which unlocked more energy, self-mastery, balance, creativity, communication, productivity, and, of course, less stress! Both at work and while engaging with life outside of work.

My new approach to leadership inspired me to create a role as an internal Leadership Development Coach, which evolved once more into creating a private coaching practice. In addition, my passion and understanding of coach-based leadership opened a new opportunity to become a Lead Trainer for iPEC; helping to grow the next generation of professional coaches.

I experienced the magic of deep coaching with remarkable individuals. I saw people unlock their potential in front of my eyes by asking powerful questions and believing in them with all of my heart. And, to my surprise, I unlocked my true calling: to enrich the world by unlocking the greatness of others.

Growing into a coach-based leader completely changed my world and my ability to not only positively influence others but to influence myself towards greater levels of consciousness and self-mastery. Which is why my focus is to empower other people-managers to grow into coach-based leaders. So that they can cultivate teams that are more empowered, enthusiastic, and high-performing. And in the process, leverage the very same skills to live a more balanced life.

I live in the great state of Colorado. I’m married to my High School sweetheart, and I have two amazing boys who remind me to stay curious about life.
