Alex’s coaching is distinguished by the use of emotional intelligence, consistency, and kindness to get the most out of people. He’s found that even in today’s technology-rich work environment, success in business is still based on functional interpersonal relationships.
From his earliest days as a cable TV personality, to living in a remote Eskimo fishing village on the Alaskan tundra, to surviving a near-fatal parachute malfunction, Alex values “measured” risk-taking and embracing change for growth – both of which he calls prerequisites for getting the most out of people and realizing one’s own potential. Alex received his education from the University of Washington, with a focus on English and Communications, a degree in Computer Information Systems from Bellevue College and multiple Leadership Development certifications.
