Learning music can be challenging for so many people and it is through this struggle I've developed a coaching program like no other. Within an hour I can identify 11 key parameters that determine the level of success, efficiency and productivity of an individual. These factors include communication effectiveness, entrepreneurial mindset, new concept absorption, blind-spot omniscience, problem positivity, EQ projection, interpersonal dynamic, perfectionism, organizational prudence, corrective diligence and swift decision processing. Adam has worked directly with highly elite CEO’s, Founders and CFO’s from the telecommunications, marketing, retail, real-estate, insurance, financial, construction and e-commerce industries to deeply understand the needs, goals and visions businesses intend to achieve. Adam will be bringing his unique coaching through music expertise, years of business operations in the restaurant field and his education in Hospitality Management and as a Master Certified Coach Trainee to see that employees maximize their success. Businesses achieve all they are meant to when employees become the best possible versions of themselves.
