Coaching gives you something money can't buy — time

Let's say you want to learn to play the piano.

You have one hour a week to dedicate to learning this skill. Which option would you choose as your method to learn?

  • Buy a book on how to play the piano?
  • Buy a keyboard and start playing around with it until things started to sound better?
  • Watch YouTube videos or tutorials?
  • Sign up for a class?
  • Hire a private teacher?

More than likely, you would choose to hire a private teacher. Why? Because you know that the fastest (and most effective) way to learn something is to have someone who knows how to do it teach you. Ultimately, they provide you with the quickest path to learning your new skill.

An executive coach works in a similar way.

Executives coaches help their clients achieve their professional goals faster. They are masters of their skill and dedicate their practice to continuous learning in the latest research and techniques to become more effective in helping you.

Experienced Leaders

As a recognized leader in your organization, you are expected to have all the answers and handle the tough situations. But times are changing and what worked in the past may not work today.

Utilizing the latest research and proven behavioral strategies, our executive coaching program helps you build your leadership skills, develop your team and individual competencies, and deliver organizational effectiveness.

Emerging Leaders

You've been getting more and more responsibility, with the expectations also rising. You may be feeling a bit overwhelmed.

Our leadership coaching program allows you to take a step back and — breathe. We help you take stock of where you're at and where you want to go, and show you ways to best manage your new responsibilities and the expectations that come with them.

Professionals in Transition

You're preparing for a big change — a new role, a new career, a new country — and may feel some uncertainty about this new phase in your life.

Our transition coaching program is designed to help you make a seamless transition with a 90-180 days coaching plan.

The MEC Approach

When it comes to coaching, we believe that the possibilities of combining action and reflection are enormous. Our goal is to support leaders as they bring their actions to life.

Our approach involves developing a deep understanding of you — your life stories, your underlying style, and your deeply held values — within a short period. Armed with this knowledge, we then begin to help you think about your professional life in new and different ways. 

We support your development through experiential learning, using proprietary exercises and processes. We also often evaluate individualized metrics through a number of assessments to help you tap into your unique potential. Our process is empowering and energizing; you will begin to find clarity and take positive action in your professional life.


You can expect every Mizerak Executive Coaching program to be:

  • Future-Focused: looking at your goals and developing a plan to achieve them
  • Performance-Focused: setting measurable success metrics that we track against
  • Accountable: you make all the final decisions and are accountable for them
  • Customized: your coaching program is customized based on what it is you are looking to achieve

The MEC Coaching Process 

Step 1: Build Relationships

Your relationships serve as the backbone to your coaching experience. We examine your key relationships (including your relationship with your coach!), and focus on strengthening and building those connections.  

Step 2: Create Targeted Goals

If you already have a goal in mind, we take that and create targets and metrics for you to work toward. Not clear on what your goal is? Don't worry, we talk you through it to gain clarity and define what you want to achieve.

Step 3: Get a Reality Check

Reality checks are an important part of the coaching process as they provide an objective view of the current situation. Your coach gets to understand your situation better by having conversations with stakeholders and conducting 360 or non-360 assessments.

Step 4: Consider Alternatives

With targeted goals set and a reality check complete, we now look at alternative options or solutions to attaining your goals. Here, we explore as many options as possible and consider their advantages and disadvantages which allows us to be more confident in the path we choose.

Step 5: Set an Intention

After considering your alternatives, it is time to choose what the focus will be and to decide what you will do to move forward. By setting your intentions, we connect your future, targeted goal with your present motivation. At this point, we have a real, tangible, and actionable idea.

Step 6: Develop an Action Plan

In this step, we develop the action plan which focuses on near-term and long-term action steps geared towards achieving your goals. As we develop the action plan, we take things like current skills, abilities, and prior knowledge into account.

Step 7: Sustainability 

With an action plan in place, we now need to make sure you complete all the things you've set out for yourself. At this point, we build both accountability and sustainability into the development plan. At each coaching session, we discuss the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ to support action planning to ensure you are able to implement your plan.

Step 8: Track Results 

As we move through this process together, each step is designed to generate results. During each coaching session, we assess what improvements you've seen, and where you are not progressing as you would like, so that we can make any necessary adjustments to your plan.
