Meet Nathanael:

Nathanael specializes in transforming organizational culture by coaching executive team dynamics. By turning development into a team sport, leaders learn to approach tough conversations with heart, which creates radical new levels of trust, alignment, high-performance, and team flow. Once this cultural cornerstone is set, Nathanael helps whole organizations scale leadership development through in-house peer coaching practice. As a martial arts and mindfulness meditation instructor, Nathanael’s practice-based approach has helped hundreds of executives from growth-minded, midmarket companies traverse the path to their next level of leadership development.
