Mr. Corbie's coaching services were procured to enhance the leadership skills of one of our newly promoted employees. What was impressive to me was that the Sherpa's coaching methodology focuses on recognising and working through one's weaknesses. After completing the coaching session, the employee has shown tremendous improvement in their approach with their team as well as in their personal development.
Ken adopts a very pragmatic approach in delivering his wealth of knowledge to develop senior people within the organization. He is viewed as a true business partner and I would highly recommend his services. I found Ken's coaching to be exceptional candidates transformed into a powerful change agent, achieving extraordinary results and influence

It gave a clear distinction what will make the biggest difference in my career and how to counteract the key issues that poses the greatest challenges and be an exemplary leader.

Thank you, my friend!
The most frequent comment I’ve heard from people who I’ve spoken to about my coaching experience, was that they wished they had something similar when they were young.
The coaching experience has given me a head start on many tools to make me a better leader, and I have gotten a lot of wisdom I have had my perception changed through teaching, versus having to develop it through experience. While both have merit, the exceptional benefit of coaching is learning faster with fewer mistakes.
The quality of my coaching experience is largely due to the quality of coach and there is no substitution for the time spent in one-on-one sessions which give more than tools and tips.
The coaching experience is unparalleled in it’s ability to dive deeper into perception and thought processes behind continuously becoming a better leader, and it ingrains the mindset needed to achieve continuous improvement in management and leadership.
My initial reaction to a coaching opportunity was scepticism. I saw a 13-week engagement as a sacrifice of time against a very hectic schedule. Having completed the program, I highly recommend Ken Corbie as a coach and the Sherpa coaching methodology as a platform for leadership development.
As my Sherpa, Ken Corbie coached with a high sense of organisation and extreme professionalism. His delivery is exceptional, and he is insightful and supportive.
Among the areas I developed during the engagement are: Confronting early; managing team expectations better; delegating effectively; monitoring staff performance and building more productive relationships.
Using the techniques I learned in the coaching engagement has led to a most fantastic turnaround in my career. I am now able to adopt a more strategic approach in my role, and the change has led me to embark on bigger and more far-reaching initiatives for Habitat which have the potential to change lives in our quest to alleviate poverty housing in Trinidad and Tobago.
Both my team and members of the board of Habitat have acknowledged my progress, and I am happy that I embarked on this journey.
Ken is very passionate about what he does, and it shows. He is an active and engaging listener who is genuinely interested in seeing you grow and develop.
In all my sessions with Ken, he never checked his phone, and it was clear that he was present in your moment.Over the last few months working with Ken, I have gained valuable insights about myself and what ignites my passion. This has given me a new perspective about my “why it matters”.I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such an amazing coach and downright genuine human being.
