Coaching with Certified Master Chef Gerald L. Ford
- High-Performance Results -
Coaching ENHANCES performance. It is a one-on-one professional relationship, with consistency scheduled calls that help you achieve results by BRIDGING THE GAP between where you are and where you want to be.
It can benefit anyone, not just athletes.
Not every athlete has a coach, but EVERY GOLD MEDALIST DOES. Coaching has been the greatest component throughout my career, with the highest return on investment. It cut the journey to a fraction of what it would be, had I figured it out myself.
I am a John Maxwell Certified Coach and through Culinary Mastery Coaching, I guide Professional Chefs on the path to perform at their HIGHEST CAPACITY and live a fulfilled life of purpose and legacy.
I offer 6 & 12 month agreements as well as 6 session packages to test the waters. Most habits have taken decades to develop; evolution takes a little time as well.

Step 1: Assess
In the Assessment phase, I use a variety of tools like DISC, the Culinary Self-Assessment, Habit Tracker, and other result driven tools to get a clear picture of where you are and where you want to go.
Step 2: Strategize
Together, we create the strategy to move forward. Purposefully laying out clear objectives & key performance indicators so we can measure progress and stay aligned with big picture objectives. Think of the strategy phase as the place we design and start building the habits.
Step 3: Integrate
Once the habits start to take hold we move to Integration and accountability. The work shifts to managing the OKR's and the KPI's as we iterate through your work, overcoming obstacles, leveraging successes and creating a process for you to use to create predictable, consistent results.
Step 4: Reflect
Each iteration ends with a reflection of steps 1, 2 & 3, This closes the loop on this iteration. Scientific evidence supports that a thorough reflection of what worked, what didn't, what to keep doing, stop doing, and what's next, leads to greater retention and accelerated evolution.
Step 5: Repeat
