Executive Coaching

brown wooden planks

Are you satisfied with your capacity to create results in spite of change and adversity? Or just struggling to keep up?

Are you seeking but not finding that elusive “life-work balance?”

Would you like to integrate life, work, relationships in a way that creates simplicity and success?

“Bruce Elkin has an exceptional ability to teach the creative process and relate it to business. 
He is a great personal coach, and an exceptional executive coach.”- Duncan Dow, Business Consultant, Vancouver, BC

Team and Organizational Mastery Are Based on Personal Mastery

My Executive Coaching approach is based on a set of skills and structures that Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline calls “Personal Mastery.”

Personal Mastery is the capacity to create high-level results, starting with whatever you have to work with, and whatever circumstances you find yourself in.

Executives with high levels of personal mastery are able to create results that truly matter to them. They are committed to their own lifelong learning and growth.

Personal mastery is, as Senge, says, “the cornerstone of a learning organization.

“The best executive training I have ever attended.”— Glen Farrell, President, Open Learning Agency of BC
