IAB Coaching

Seattle Executive Coach

It can be lonely at the top. Talk to someone who’s been there.

Every executive needs a place to process or be vulnerable about the challenges they face. It’s impossible to do this in front of your employees or with other leaders. Executive coaching from IAB provides you with the ability to talk to someone with over 21 years of executive experience. Learn to love yourself, understand your unique identity, and take action while bringing your very best self into reality.

Gain More Confidence

Executive coaching provides you with an opportunity to work with an experienced leader who has been in the same position you’re in. This leads to expertise, experience and the confidence to achieve your goals.

Strategic Leadership Coaching

Learn the keys to unlocking the very best version of yourself for leading your company. We will hone in on key facets of yourself that you need to develop to optimize yourself as a leader. We’ll look for areas that need work and what’s missing in your leadership arsenal that’s holding you and your company back. The end goal is to turn you into a well-rounded leader.

Achieve the Outcomes You Desire

Learn how to achieve your goals by harnessing the power of habits while scientifically retraining your subconscious mind to stop working against you, and start working on your behalf.

Become a Whole Person While Finding Success.

Executive coaching is similar to personal development or life coaching. In the executive coaching world, we’ve often see a lot of emphasis on action. While great things can happen by springing into action, many executives quickly realize that they still feel empty and unhappy — even after they achieve their goals.

The IAB Executive Coaching program addresses this by focusing on your development as an individual. We spend as much time on acceptance of ourselves as we do achieving success. There are three elements to our program:

Love — If you don’t believe that you are loved, then how do you know your drive for success is anything more than a compensating tool—are you not really leading, but rather subconsciously seeking out the acceptance of others?

Identity — What makes “you” you? We work with our executive coaching clients to discover more about the reason(s) why the universe, God, or your creator put you on this planet and discover who you are as a person. Why you? What’s your unique purpose?

Action — We embark upon the long road of taking action and measuring results to achieve your goals.

Many executive coaching programs address some of the above—but few plumb the connections between these three. The IAB system is more comprehensive as we work on personal development as well as career success.

The goal of IAB executive coaching is to help you become happy and successful by discovering who you are and exactly what goals are possible in your life.

Now that you know who you are and how much you’re loved, NOW let’s start taking action!

"To change your life, begin with yourself."

Executive Leadership Coaching FAQs

How much is an executive coach?

The cost of an executive coach depends entirely upon your situation. Each executive is unique and will require a customized approach. The best way to determine how much it will cost is to reach out to IAB Executive Coaching to learn more.

What is the best executive coaching qualification?

While there are plenty of programs and certifications out there, there’s one thing that money cannot buy:


The best coaching qualification is someone who has been in the very same spot that you’re currently in now. They’ve been down that path prior and can offer guidance, help, and, most importantly—someone to confide in.

A good executive leadership coach should also be a good life coach—business and personal matters are two entirely separate things but intrinsically linked as the growth of your executive career is directly tied into your personal development.

What does an executive coach do?

An executive coach helps you gain self-awareness as they work with you to identify and achieve your goals. Most importantly, they act as a confidant—someone whom you can speak to in private to discuss your fears, hopes, and challenges.

What should I expect from an executive coach?

A good executive coach will have you working on your personal and career development. They will provide you with a roadmap and the necessary tools to unlock your hidden potential.

Keep in mind that there are no easy roads out. Personal change comes from hard work over time. Your coach cannot perform the work for you but rather act as an advisor, confidant, and your own personal cheerleader as you reach each milestone on your way to realizing your goals.

Is executive coaching worth it?

Yes! Nobody was born a perfect executive or leader. You got to this position in life through hard work and dedication. While presenting an external stoic and confident impression at work, many executives have fears, hopes, and challenges they cannot discuss amongst co-workers. An executive coach is there to help you become the very best “you” that’s possible while lending an ear and offering a road map to success.

How effective is executive coaching?

Executive coaching isn’t a gimmick or a “quick fix” to solve your problems. It applies the scientific principles of neuro associative conditioning to harness the power of habits while retraining your subconscious mind to work on your behalf.

One recent study found that “..coaching has significant positive effects on all. These findings indicate that coaching is, overall, an effective intervention in organizations.”

How do I prepare for executive coaching?

First off, you have to have the desire to work hard to see the change you want. You need a willingness to set goals, keep an open mind to new perspectives, and commit to a long road ahead. There are no easy fixes and often no quick solutions. You’re committing to working hard to make positive changes that will affect both your personal and work life permanently.

Much like the bodybuilder who hits the gym daily, you will need to put in work over time before you see the fruits of your labor. You’re only human—and you may fall off the proverbial wagon. Your executive coach is there to guide, support, and be your biggest cheerleader as you travel down the path to a new you.

Does coaching really work?

Yes! Executive coaching can have a profound effect on your personal and professional development. However, keep in mind that you get out of it what you put into it. Only a strong effort yields strong results. You must be fully committed to the goal and realize that positive change takes time and effort. The person you will become will thank the person you are now for putting in the time and effort.
