Leadership Coaching & Catfishing 

Most leaders fail because they do not understand how their leadership is perceived by those they lead!

You will increase your leadership success as you chase after monster fish and learn how others view your leadership!

When I a young boy I started to watch fishing shows Saturday mornings on television. It looked like fun, but neither I nor my dad knew anything about fishing. We went down to the local sporting goods store to buy our first rods and reels. I remember the store associate was nice enough to take us out in the back parking lot and show us how to cast.


We would occasionally go fishing on Saturday mornings, and even once went up north. While we enjoyed the times together, my dad and I never were really good. 


Fishing tailed off as I entered university and became extremely busy. I would later marry my wife, yet still, I did not fish much. I told my wife that when I was a kid I always had a dream of hosting a fishing show. A while later I would get the go-ahead to purchase my very own boat! And while I still do not host a fishing show, I love taking people out and showing them how to catch some monster fish! 


This unique half-day experience was created for any leader to grow his/her leadership competencies while chasing after some monster catfish! You will receive 4 hours of in-boat time going after monster fish!

You can even bring a friend if you want!

(We will be following COVID guidelines as best as possible in the boat. I have ample hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes, and I will be wearing a non-medical mask - guests do not need to wear a mask if they do not want to).  

During this experience, you will receive:


▶A personal 20-page assessment highlighting


*Your personal and leadership strengths and weaknesses

*Your value To The Team 

*Checklist For Communicating

*Don'ts On Communicating

*Ideal Environment

*Keys To Motivating

*Keys To Leading

*Areas For Improvement

We will explore your report in real-time as we examine how your personality and strengths play out in real life as we chase after some monster fish!


Not only will you become a better leader but you will be provided with everything you need to hook into a fish of a lifetime! (Just bring your fishing license and food).

Here's a fun little video I shot the other weekend while fishing with friends that will show you the fun you will have as you grow your leadership. 

While this is not a Coaching & Catfishing video (as those are private for the client) this does showcase my personality and enjoyment that I always have with those that climb aboard my boat.
