As my executive coach, Elizabeth Fried did just that, " says David Kaput, Sr. Vice President, ACCO Brands, International, Headquartered in Lincolnshire, IL
"Through her expert advice and coaching, I’m far more effective--in my leadership role, in my job as a mentor empowering my staff, and as a trusted advisor deepening collegial relationships with my peers. I genuinely appreciated the benefit of having a truth-teller who I could confide in, who supported me, and held me accountable for the transformational work I experienced. Personally and professionally, I have become a more effective business executive and leader as well as a better father, husband, and friend."
Coaching Gurus judges contenders by focusing on coach trainers and speakers, and excludes sports coaches. Their main focus is on those practitioners who develop and bring out the best in others' personal, financial and business abilities. Those top ranked Gurus are the “Cream of the Crop”--the world’s top most influential Coaching Professionals--
Coaching Guru's research came from e-mails sent to 22,000 business people, consultants, academics and MBA’s around the world for nominations and their public opinion poll. From this information, they shortlisted 60 names then did a Google search for ranking.
The criteria for judging the TOP 30 focused on: Originality of ideas, practicality of ideas, coaching results, presentation style, international outlook, impact of ideas, quality of publications and writings, dispersion of publications and writings, public opinion, and guru factor.
"I'm honored to be in the company of Marshall Goldsmith and Tony Robbins, "says Fried. "It gives me great pleasure to be of service to others and help them develop their full potential. On many levels I consider this sacred work because of its personal impact on my clients. In return they offer me more joy than I ever thought possible."
