Senior Leadership

Beyond Important

Executive coaching plays a critical role in achieving big picture organizational objectives and should be part of every leadership development portfolio.

Helping us build a strong leadership pipeline

We partnered with David Arrington for executive coaching to help us build a strong leadership pipeline for the future growth of our company. Within a short period, we began to reap the benefits of his positive and professional coaching style. We consider him a valuable resource to help aid us in the growth of our executives.

Our approach to executive coaching

Progress in every session

Each leader and situation is unique,  therefore we leverage our experience in numerous industries with hundreds of coaching clients to identify parallels in order to shorten learning curve. 

Executive coaching is a senior leadership development strategy that provides just-in-time, tailored feedback and insights to your executives and c-suite contributors.

We provide positive accountability, an experienced and confidential thinking partner, and leverage our ASCEND process to provide a return on investment in each session.

what is executive coaching?

Decision-making Secret Weapon 

For us, executive coaching is a transformationalconfidential, and transparent relationship. We provide our clients the much needed space to think in the high-stakes, rapidly changing, world environment which they call their day job. This enables them to move out of "reaction mode", plan ahead and lead courageously.

During executive coaching engagements we may spend time developing executive leadership skills, but we see executive coaching from a more strategic perspective.

From where we sit the primary differentiator between executive coaching and other types of coaching we offer comes down to scope.


C-level executives and senior leaders wrestle with decisions that have a broader scope and impact than leaders at other organizational levels.

For us, it's assisting leaders to make the best choices in these higher-stakes scenarios that sets executive coaching apart from leadership coaching.

Assisted my development as a C-suite level executive

David has assisted my development as a C-suite level executive in leadership. I have worked with him for six months and his program is both well organized and easily digestible. He helped me see through various work-life barriers and strengthened my approach to conflict resolution. He reminds me life is worth smiling about! In working with David and his program for six months, I achieved deeper insight into myself but also how others perceived my contributions. This allowed me to improve in soft skill areas and be more mindful of how important effective communication is. David made our sessions easy to comply to and work within my busy schedule. I look forward to taking some newfound listening and planning skills into my leadership thanks to Arrington Coaching!
