Business Coaching Dallas: Serving you in the Dallas / Fort Worth Area & Beyond!

Bullet-Proofing Your Business One Piece of Your Expertise at a Time.

Executive Business Coaching Dallas. We are headquartered in the greater Dallas and Fort Worth area and help local businesses grow. We also work with clients all over the country.

Our specialty is to help you convert your expertise into more revenue and profit.

What makes us different from other coaches and even consultants is that we work with you on simultaneously ensuring the sustainability of your growth now and long-term.

We bullet-proof your business one piece of your critical expertise at a time.

The economy in the great Dallas and Ft. Worth area is booming. Many businesses - especially those that need trained staff - have trouble attracting, training and retaining sufficient personnel to sustain the business growth. In many sectors, the job market is tight.

As a leader in your organization, you know that sustainable growth depends on a number of critical factors:

  1. Effective KISS style business planning and strategy - to us KISS means "Keep it smart and simple"
  2. Capturing key knowledge that currently resides only in a few key people's heads - we call this process Brilliance Extraction
  3. Converting the captured expertise into systems - that way you can train others in your organization thoroughly as quickly and cost-effectively as possible
  4. Enhance the effectiveness of leaders through targeted executive coaching - our coaching is based on lots of training, and hands-on executive leadership experience (including turn around experience)
  5. Increase the engagement of your employees at all levels - mentoring and professional development pays for itself by retaining your valuable staff and via the extra initiative they show at work
  6. Effective online marketing that answers critical questions of your potential buyers - this is critical because what you sell is a "considered purchase" (one where many buyers do their due diligence online before buying)

Productivity, efficiency, utilizing and capitalizing talent while minimizing turnover are critical to your bottom line. These positive factors, plus sales can make your business a well-oiled machine that maximizes profits. Of course, the opposite is also true. Every company can use a tune-up from an objective, trained observer from time to time.

Our philosophy for business coaching Dallas is to be highly effective and always customized to your situation.

We love working with smart people who demand the same in someone who supports them in the growth of their business and career.

Clients tell us that we are insightful and see the essence of challenges and opportunities quickly. That allows us to move from analysis to strategy and to action which means results come fast. Throughout the many years we've worked in business coaching and consulting, we consistently have seen clients growing, even doubling their business within a short time.

Expect breakthroughs because our methods make them inevitable.

We asked our clients to tell us what they think our business coaching "superpowers" are. Check out what they said and how we apply them to accelerate your success.

Our approach is one on one and adapts to your unique culture and goals. The superpowers are building blocks we use for your custom solution.

Extract Your Brilliance

It is not easy to clearly and succinctly express our brilliance to others. Without extracting what you know and capturing it, you will remain the person who has the most knowledge in your business and hence everyone keeps on depending on you. Then you do not get to enjoy the level of success and freedom you could have.

It takes fresh eyes to expose gaps and opportunities. It takes an objective observer to help you spot the proper path to the next level of success. Brilliance extraction has a powerful effect on the bottom line.

You can't do this yourself no matter how brilliant you are!

Strategize - Your Game Plan

The next step is forming a strategy. What are your goals? How do you want to get there? We will do a brain dump, sort it out, add, subtract, refine ideas and prioritize.  The 80/20 rule frequently applies once you reveal the gaps and opportunities. We find that priorities that will give you the biggest results first.

You will be surprised how fast we get this accomplished with your wisdom. What's key is you will end up with a powerful strategy that fits your company and sets a clear path to your ROI goals! In fact, you may have to adjust your ROI goals upward.

Strategy carried in your head is not actionable and slows you down.

Produce Results!

We waste no time converting your strategies into tangible action plans. They are focused, realistic, distilled down to avoid overwhelm and adding up to fast gains in income, profit, team culture. Even freeing up time to spend with family or take a vacation without feeling like your business would suffer.

We also provide feedback and coaching and accountability which makes it possible to meet your goals in a timely manner. We do this with great skill, compassion and success.

Who knew producing results could be so fast and yet, so much less stressful?!

“Thank you for your strategic guidance and the “Fresh Eyes Assessment.  Through your leadership, and in a short time, we exceeded our expectations in revenue and profitability, and Giroux Glass has emerged as a stronger, independent employee ownership managed company.”

Anne-Merelie Murrell, CEO, Giroux Glass, Inc.,

Wow, I honestly did not expect to get so much value from Dr. Stephie’s “Top-Notch CEO Coaching Circle.”  In the beginning, I thought I already knew the tips we were discussing.  Then, as we got deeper into it, I realized that — to reach my goals faster and with greater ease — I needed to reflect more on many of the tips.  I am fleshing out my ideas in more detail and, more importantly, I now write them down instead of carrying them only in my head.  Many times when I’ve been promised tremendous business improvements through one program or the other and I have felt ripped off afterwards.  Dr. Stephie, however, is the real deal and delivers way more value than you would ever expect.

Ted Przybylek, President, Rancho Ted Real Estate Loans & Investments

Dr. Stephie’s CEO coaching program is right on the mark. It is pragmatic — no fuss — and gets you on point quickly. I appreciate the teleconference format as it makes it very easy to participate. It is obvious she has a lot of experience and has spent a lot of time researching and developing the program to get the maximum results. I highly recommend it for anyone that is driven to be successful and wants to further improve strategies and tools needed need to get there.

Karen Taggart, President, Shades of Light, San Diego

“Dr. Stephie is a driven and highly energetic executive. She has kept the team focused, and the company growing, even during the recent economic cycle. Last year’s revenues increased 41%. Stephie has expanded the company’s portfolio of products and skills into new technology areas. Client satisfaction is very high.”

Jim Waring, Executive Chairman, CleanTECH San Diego

My experience with Dr. Stephie was that she was very professional and she offered great insight into how a company should be run AND the tough decisions which need to be made.

Andy Gull, Project Manager, Giroux Glass

Top Notch CEO rocks! Dr. Stephie is adept at keeping you focused and moving forward, after she expertly supports you in developing your plan of action. The result? Your business will grow in the direction YOU want it to with you firmly in the driver's seat. Thank you, Top Notch CEO!

Sarah Coolidge, Director of North Tahoe Public Utility Board, Author and Message Wizard

For the past 6 months I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Stephie on a weekly basis. I must say, when I began, I did not think I was going to need the help of an executive coach for my business. I could not have been more wrong! She has been an invaluable asset, providing me with frequent feedback and coaching that has allowed me to go above and beyond at work and in my life. I highly recommend Dr. Stephie to anyone looking to grow their business and empower everyone around them. She is a dedicated asset and I look forward to continuing to work with her in the future.

Madison Meyer, Director for Business Development, Holonis Inc.

Dr. Stephie is an experienced business woman — with experience in diverse companies — including work with skills assessment, marketing, team building, sales, and leadership.  I highly recommend her!

Maureen Mason-Cover, Physical Therapist, Comprehensive Therapy

The Top-Notch CEO Coaching Circle and “101 Quick Tips for high-Talent Companies” book are very helpful.  They force me to step back, pause and reflect on what I want to accomplish, as well as review Hi-Z with a fresh perspective.  Beyond that, the peer group provides an outside viewpoint from other business leaders unrelated to Hi-Z.  Having this type of forum as a sounding board is invaluable.  Thank you, Dr. Stephie!

Jill Elsner, CEO / CFO, Hi-Z Technology, Inc.

What impressed me most about Dr. Stephie is her ability to motivate me to confidently tackle challenging tasks.  She truly cares about getting measurable results for her client and this is obvious from the initial consultation through the actual coaching program.  I would highly recommend her for anyone tackling a new quest or needing to be more effective in the current one.

Mark Baldwin, Founder and Principle, Urban Farm Opportunist

Fantastic CEO!!  Couldn’t ask for a better person to steer the ship of my company.  Great advisor, problem solver, people person, and system analyst.
