At some point in your life, you've probably had an impactful coach or mentor. This may have been a teacher, a parent, your boss, your partner, or a close friend. That coach probably created a safe space for open conversations. They probably knew you well enough to provide insights you didn't know to ask for. And they brought a unique perspective that helped accelerate your learning and your growth at a rate you couldn't have achieved on your own.
I combine a passion for individual coaching with decades of technology and leadership experience. Whether your background is Engineering, Product Management, Services, Sales; whether you're a seasoned executive or a first-time leader, I can radically accelerate your growth.
From seasoned executives to first-time technology managers, I have decades of experience helping leaders take their talents to the next level through executive coaching.
I founded Arete Pursuits because over three decades of technology leadership, I have found nothing more rewarding than coaching others and helping them maximize their potential through executive or life coaching.
I started working with Josh in order to work through some professional challenges and I appreciate that he was able to provide suggestions and tools to help with a wide variety of challenges - things like productivity, having difficult conversations, and work/life balance. Our regular coaching sessions quickly progressed to bigger conversations about goals and what it means to me to be a leader. The tools, frameworks, and insights Josh shared helped me grow as a leader and helped shape the next steps of my career.

The corporate executive coaching really is for all levels, with key insights into each level, and how to get to the next. The dynamics and interplay with different roles and at different levels proved to be especially helpful. Josh is skilled at uncovering hidden strengths and improving on weaknesses to allow for the best opportunities to come your way. Josh is skilled in creating a safe and judgment-free coaching environment.
