EXECUTIVE COACHING:
Coaching with Pat T Dolen
We work with senior executives, professionals and entrepreneurs to provide a sounding board, accountability and strategic direction to help them reach their personal and professional goals.
Our approach to the coaching relationship begins with a relationship agreement which is revisited on a regular basis. We believe that the path to work fulfillment is through achieving one’s personal ambitions.
