Months 3 through 8—Coaching To Your Executive Edge
It’s time to get to work! Through bi-weekly hour-long coaching conversations (12 in total), we’ll uncover your limiting beliefs, uncover new ways of thinking, and brainstorm alternative actions available to you. You’ll then commit to practices that will build new capacity. Cutting edge software will help keep you on track with your commitments and you’ll be able to see your progress as it unfolds. All the while, David Spungin will be pushing you to go farther and inspiring you to be more. You’ll be at your Executive Edge in no time.
Month 1—Interviews & Assessments
It all starts with assessing your current state and engaging with key stakeholders. Rather than using an impersonal online feedback tool, David Spungin will personally interview those you truly care about and are imperative for your success. You will also take multiple behavioral self-assessments in order to determine your strengths and potential areas for development.
“Good afternoon David! I wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know that our team has reached 75% of their 2016 Sales Goal and has exceeded 2015 sales by roughly $500K. I expect we will exceed our 2017 goal by the end of October. I learned a lot from you and continue to draw on the things we discussed. The more I learn about being a great leader the more I realize the positive impact you have had on me. Thank you!! “

Month 2—Feedback, IDP Development, & Stakeholder Alignment
Once your data is analyzed, we will have a comprehensive feedback session in which key findings are reported back in an anonymous fashion. You’ll then make choices as to where you would like to grow yourself as a leader and we’ll jointly create your own individual development plan that will establish tangible goals for the coming month's work together. Finally, we’ll share your plan with key stakeholders and garner support.
“A big thank you to David Spungin, MSOD, ACC! Our one on one executive coaching experience over the past six months has not only inspired me as a person but as a manager and leader. Your unique approach has helped me better address tough situations throughout my personal and professional life. Five star rating David, you are truly inspiring!"

It’s lonely at the top. Today ’s executives know this reality all to0 well. With greater authority and responsibility comes increased expectations to personally perform. With so many stakeholders to appease and very little time to deliver results, the pressure can become overwhelming and impact one’s performance. In a world where competition for advancement is fierce, there’s no room for mediocrity and unrealized potential. Today’s executive needs an edge. More appropriately, they need to find their own edge as a leader.
What does it mean to find your edge? It starts with taking the time to think more strategically. It’s about acknowledging where you are succeeding as a leader and having the humility to discover where you can improve. Next, it becomes all about courage. What growth opportunities will push you outside your comfort zone? What are you willing to commit to? Will you do the work necessary for true transformation? Or will your bureaucracy of habits continue to limit your personal effectiveness? Finding your edge is not a journey for the faint of heart!
As such it’s not a journey executives should take alone, we need help. Today’s executive needs a skilled coach who can uncover “blind spots” and create learning opportunities. They need a trusted confidant who can act as a sounding board and provide perspective. They also need a proven process that will ensure progress and accountability. David Spungin, MSOD ACC developed The Executive Edge Program specifically to address these growing needs.
“David Spungin gave me a different point of view. With his help, I was able to recognize where I could improve myself. I found balance in my work and home life. With David as my executive coach, I have extensively changed my leadership approach. I now see myself more objectively. In the past, a distorted self-image prevented me from identifying areas that warranted improvement—a major stumbling block in my leadership growth and development. David quickly uncovered the problem and provided me the insights/tools I need to understand how others perceive me. With my newly honed skills, I can adjust my actions and modify my behaviors for increasingly positive results. These indispensable lessons will serve me well as I continue to climb the leadership ladder. My only regret is, I wish I had found David earlier in my career.”
