Executive Advising

Have you ever had one of those situations that seem to confound you?

There may be multiple sensitive or challenging factors simultaneously at play. There may be so many factors that you don’t know where to begin. You know that you’re competent. You know that you can typically handle 99% of all issues that arise, but this case has stymied you. You just need some on-the-spot, in-the-moment objective and expert advice.

There are times when you...

  • Just want a solution or an answer.
  • Crave insight because you want to know “why.”
  • Don’t know what to take into consideration or how to view a situation.
  • Simply need a jump-start on a strategy.
  • Need a trusted advisor.

PowerSkills Executive Advising offers the direction you seek and the support you need for the path forward!

Here’s how Executive Advising works

Step 1

Contact us at (619) 706-4050 to schedule a free, 30-minute phone consultation during which the Advisor will ask a series of probing questions to comprehend the situation at hand fully. The Advisor then will honestly let you know whether the situation applies to Executive Advising or Professional Coaching.

Step 2

Meet 1-3 times with your Advisor via phone or Zoom. Using a systems model for assessment, your Advisor, an expert in systems analysis, will briefly explain why things are happening and why people are acting or responding the way they are. Receive advice from a system perspective, including suggested tactics, practices and strategies.

Step 3

Implement some or all the advice and decide whether additional advising or a quarterly membership would be beneficial to address other aspects of the situation.

Executive Advising Services are completely confidential and only available for individuals.
