It may be hard to get an impression about a person using just words. The button on the right opens a video where Phil Cheney talks about his background and values.
“It is uneccessary to limit ourselves to one area of expertise. There are no compartments that you have to stuff yourself into in order to know yourself. You do not need to find out what your innate interest is and then pursue one or two areas, you can enjoy a high level of expertise in virtually any area of pursuit that you decide on.” Wayne Dyer, from Wisdom of the Ages, p164
As a leader, you are commonly under the stress of expectation. Your life is about balancing work and non-work life goals, setting and constraining goals and directions, achieving healthy relationships, stimulating motivation and effecting change. Leaders motivate performance by building pride, but first they must establish their own, while juggling many expectations.
Who do you turn to when you are overwhelmed with priorities, creative opportunities or conflict?
“I want you to see the possibility of contribution which arise simultaneously from
competence (what you are really good at),
passion (what you love doing), and
the world’s needs (your potentially significant contributions).”
Phil “Philosofree” Cheney

Advantace coaching focuses on clarity. Peter Drucker famously said: “”If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it” and “leadership is doing the right things.” Reality based clarity is behind both of these quotes. Clarity is also the prime prerequisite for understanding the complexities of life, which involves filtering out and comprehending the core issues from the mass of information available.
How is this achieved?
Advantace coaching is feedback-intensive, behaviorally focused, and results oriented. It can stand alone or be integrated into a larger developmental initiative, either as a one-to-one experience or in group or team settings. It also provides leadership development.
At its core coaching is about questions and listening. So simple you can do it for yourself, right? Well in some ways, that is correct, you can implement a lot of improvements to your methods by working with the tools available worldwide or on this site, but having a coach work with you is going to be a lot more time effective. And isn’t time one of your most valuable resources?
Insight and Clarity
Lasting behavioral change, though important, is not the only positive result of Advantace coaching. Surveys and interviews do not often capture the sometimes profound insights that clients gain about their long-term career goals, personal development goals, and individual learning styles.
Finding a coach.
For business executives, there has been an evolving understanding of coaching…
Late 1980s: “A coach? What’s a coach?”
Early 1990s: “A coach? You mean, like…a corporate shrink?”
Mid-to-late 1990s: “A coach? Am I in trouble?”
Early 2000s: “A coach? Thanks – I think. ”
Mid-to-late 2000s: “A coach? Great!”
Now: “A coach? How long can I work with him/her – and do I get to choose the one I want?”
Finding the right coach is obviously critical. The synergies, understandings and energy that flow between the coach and client are not something that can be calculated or read off a list. It is a relationship of trust, and you need to know that the coach you choose can operate at your level, someone who has “Been there, done that”. Someone who can empathise. Someone who knows the right questions to release your highest self. Someone who will listen and hear things that you don’t even know you are feeling or communicating. Someone like Phil Cheney.
Advantace coaching process is successful when a client such as you finds fulfillment, including feeling passionate about their work, being inspired each day, reaching financial security, and knowing they are respected and loved by themselves, family and friends.
