We’re a little different than most career and leadership coaches. We combine global front-line work experience with Gestalt methods, Emotional Intelligence principles, proven marketing skills and a deep understanding of the job market. We believe this translates into better potential outcomes for organizations that wish to optimize their human investments and individuals seeking to reach their potential and find true professional satisfaction and fulfillment.


Mach10 Career & Leadership Coaching’s Distinctions

Professionally certified coaches

We’re certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the Gestalt International Study Center (GISC) and as an EQ-i 2.0 and EQ360 emotional intelligence practitioner. These are considered the gold standards for professional career and leadership coaching.

Broad, global work experience

We’ve worked in global corporations, start ups, development-stage enterprises and not-for-profits. We’ve hired hundreds of professionals and worked in the US, across Europe, and Latin America. We’ve assumed and managed a broad swath of job functions, including application developers, project managers, CFOs, IT managers, DBAs, graphic designers, copywriters, event managers, communications managers, market researchers, analysts, advertising managers and operations specialists.

Approach grounded in Gestalt methods1

We’re career development and leadership coaching specialists trained in the rigorous gestalt model. Gestalt theory places emphasis on perception and the principle that genuine change occurs when you fully accept your situation and who you are rather than simply striving to be different. Ultimately, the Gestalt principles are employed to mobilize your excitement and energy toward your personal development and growth. With this in mind, we focus on building a trusting relationship from the start, raising your awareness of your inner truth, and unlocking the defenses and resistances that limit your progress.

Built on a foundation of Emotional Intelligence science

The EQ-i 2.0 and EQ360 are scientifically validated assessments that measure the interaction between a person and the environment that he/she operates in. Assessing and evaluating leaders’ and individual contributors’ emotional intelligence skills can help identify targeted development opportunities and ensure strengths are fully harnessed. This, in turn, can lead to dramatic increases in performance, happiness, retention, and leadership potential.

Insight into the skills the market values

The mix of jobs our economy produces and the skills that are valued change over time. These changes mirror technological, political and social trends. We carefully monitor the current state of market demand and consider how it will evolve in the future, so your career is flexible, dynamic and built to last.

We created Mach10 Career & Leadership Coaching to catalyze professional growth and development in a variety of circumstances. For organizations, this means coaching current leaders to expand their repertoire of leadership-oriented behavioral skills, assessing emotional intelligence to promote performance and helping laid off employees successfully transition to their next role. For individuals, we ensure their authentic selves are aligned with what they do, their skills and talents are brought to the job and they effectively present themselves to potential employers or clients.

Rob’s Story

1The Gestalt coaching model is a client-centered approach that helps clients focus on the present and understand what is really happening in their lives right now, rather than what they may perceive to be happening based on past experience.
