The Essential Coaching Leader by Patty Burgin

Business Leader to Patty in 2003: What do you do? 

Patty: I’m a coach. 

Business Leader: Cool! What sport?

This conversation used to be frequent. But in the years that have followed, more and more business leaders have experienced executive coaching, which has become a thing. A valuable and professional thing.

Now the question business leaders regularly ask Patty is, “How do I learn to do what you do?”

That’s why in 2008 she launched the SeattleCoach Professional Training and Development Program, hosting hundreds of entrepreneurs, executives, and organizational leaders as they’ve learned to “do the craft and be the coach.”

Today, when you search “SeattleCoach” you get Pete Carroll, Coach of the Seahawks. And you get Patty.

The Essential Coaching Leader is her introduction to a way of leading that finds its evidence and examples in neuroscience, in 21st-century business effectiveness, in history, and even in good theology. It is a way of leading that is both ancient and new.

The five essentials found in The Essential Coaching Leader will help you explore and begin to practice coaching leadership in this time of relentless and historic change.

Following stints in the international leadership of a Christian nonprofit, as a conference speaker, as a tour leader in the former Soviet Union, and as a licensed marriage and family therapist, Patty founded SeattleCoach ® in 2003. And in 2008, she launched the SeattleCoach Professional Training and Development Program, which is credentialed by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and approved by nearly 300 SeattleCoaches who have brought their wisdom, heart, and fun to the process of learning to “do the craft and be the coach.”

Patty holds two masters degrees, one in Theology and a second in Applied Behavioral Science, and has joined the top 3 percent of credentialed coaches worldwide to have been awarded the title of Master Certified Coach by the ICF.

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Patty loves just about everything about it: the water, the coast, the mountains, the great IPAs, and “not having to squint as much as Californians do.”
