Charles Feltman coaches executives and managers in several areas including leadership development and presence, effective team leadership, strategic planning, and conflict management. With experienced executives and upper-level managers he works to further extend and fine-tune their leadership capacity, and to deal effectively with the challenges they face at their level. With mid-level managers his focus is on expanding their ability to lead at higher levels as their careers advance.
Charles works in partnership with his clients to identify the full range of internal and external resources available to them in service to achieving their highest goals. To the coaching partnership he brings a commitment to his clients' excellence and well-being.
In addition to coaching individuals, Charles coaches teams and workgroups who know they should be more innovative and productive than they are, but are not able to achieve their desired results. In this capacity Charles often helps teams
deal with issues of trust, conflict, commitment and accountability.
