Counseling has given me the ability to pursue what is most important to me in both career and family.
-- Angelo in Chicago  

Executive Coaching in Chicago, Illinois & Iowa

Dr. Scott Terry, and the Ardent Counseling Center team have synthesized hundreds of best practices into customizable coaching modules for high-potential leaders. Each module is enhanced by supplementary learning materials: white papers, articles, and multimedia, audio and video presentations.

Your Only Sustainable Competitive Advantage

Your ability to learn faster than your competition is your only sustainable competitive advantage.
- Arie De Gues, former Head Strategic Planning Group, Royal Dutch Shell

There are two types of people in business, those that already know everything and those that are always learning; also known as "closed" and "teachable" respectively.

The closed leader may have the capacity for high achievement, but their inability to learn keeps the organization stuck. The teachable leader is able to say, 'I don't know, let me learn.' High-level leaders demonstrate a quality of humility paradoxically tied to high achievement.

Developing mastery in any endeavor requires a consistent practice. Our job is to help you learn to master the essential foundations of high-level leadership.

Next Generation Time Management

A completely new set of demands on your attention requires a refreshed and evolving set of skills. Your attention is spread. Your possibilities are broadened. Leaders tax your mental and emotional energy in ways never before experienced. Through working with Ardent Executive Coaches, you will move beyond time management to "attention" management. High-level leaders focus better.

Execute Productively

Productivity goes hand in hand with focus. Get more done by implementing systems to confidently organize, prioritize and execute to achieve better results on the way to your strategic milestones. This is directed exclusively at the client's personal productivity. Once you are firmly established in these habits, workshops can be set up to train your staff on these productivity tools as well.

Centered Communication

Leaders establish vision, inspire dedication, and motivate action. Your ability to communicate abstract concepts, clear data and emotional content determines your organization's morale, teamwork and commitment.

Building on the 'teachable' leader concept, your ability to learn to communicate effectively will determine the pace of your organization's collective growth with any other initiative.

Peak Performance

If you are not well, nothing works. Your state - the collective experience of your physical body, mental operations, emotional awareness, and attitudes - determine your daily effectiveness. A high profile leader's ability to perform is the ultimate divider between good and great. Your communication, productivity, focus and ability to learn all rest on the state that you habitually inhabit.

Work with Dr. Scott Terry, and the Ardent Counseling Center team includes laser-focused direction that cuts through the annoying static of the mass media advice on performance. This includes diet, exercise, shifting attitude, handling intense emotions and mind-body connection.
