Leadership Coaching

for new or overwhelmed male leaders

Rest Assured with Kyle as Your Steering Partner

Consciously Lead with a Clear Mind and Heart

As a male in today's society, I have recognized the social conditioning that trains to act with more 'fire' than 'water', and this imbalance can make it challenging to confidently navigate the intersections of decisions, communication, and emotions as a leader.

In truth, a healthy masculine leader is balanced and harnesses their personal power by tuning into their 'watery' emotional intelligence and creates an empowered environment for their team to get better and bring the collective vision to life.

So that is why I’m here to help you develop as a leader that is CALM and CLEVER with CARE - that brings your vision from ether to earth through your own personal flare.

TL:DR - Basically don't be the scorching heat of Death Valley - be the warm sunshine of Pacific Beach, San Diego

Kyle’s coaching has been a beacon for me in the chaos of Silicon Valley. His practical exercises helped me find clarity in my career decisions and personal branding—something I didn’t realize I needed until I saw the results.

You Are Called to Lead & Care

  • Called to lead and wanting a guide. You sense your natural leadership potential, and you want support optimizing it with your unique flavor, melody, and flare. 

  • Service-driven and enjoy helping others. Yes, the money matters in keeping the lights on, and what really energizes you is the pride you have in the service you provide to your team / community. 

  • Conscientious with the way you show up and lead. This shows by the way you reflect on how you addressed that challenge but don't feel great about, and want to find a better way to show up... You care. 

  • Aware of and appreciate mind + body + spirit well-being. This fits in any spiritual beliefs, and is based in the sense of knowing there is more to life than meets the eye, and that it is on your side. 

Primary Leadership Frameworks

Emotional Resilience + Effective Communication + Timely Solutions

  • Coaching fit & strategy: Your support begins with a complimentary call where we will clarify where you are right now, where you want to be, and identify the initial actions you can take. 

  • Coaching profile intake: Once we've verified we make great partners we complete the logistics of contract agreement, invoice payment, and you complete a thorough wholistic intake that will help me support you in this partnership as best as possible. 

  1. Managing Your Purposes: Establish your foundation with purpose by understanding the four ordinary pursuits we all have of peace, passion, pleasure, and prosperity as well as how they work together. 

  2. Mentor Leadership: Learn how to be a leader who engages, educates, equips, empowers, encourages, energizes, and elevates those around you.  

  3. Emotional CARE: Cultivate your skill of emotional resilience by tuning into the power of your emotions. Know what your core desires are and how to be the primary provider for them.

  4. CALM Communication: Lead transformational conversations that are empathetic and purpose driven to co-create the solutions you desire. 

  5. CLEVER solutions: From a CARE-d for and CALM state of being we organically develop into learning how CLEVER helps you solve the problems that are holding you or your team back. 

  6. Ayurveda & Yoga lifestyle optimizations: Build a lifestyle routine that optimizes your energy with proper foods and activities to elevate your purpose for leadership. 

  • These strategies are complimentary and rhythmic, naturally empowering each other the more they are practiced. Supplemental support on vision, organization, etc. is as needed. 

  • Throughout our work, we keep in mind your personal and relational circumstances, and I support you with approachable recommendations to optimize and maintain your lifestyle for work-life balance from a holistic perspective.

"Kyle's strength in leadership is rooted in his strength as a listener.

Rarely have I felt as heard and understood as I have working with this incredible man.

The questions he asks help me see deeper into my being and have enriched my life by teaching me how to show up for others the way he has shown up for me."
