Why Pick Thomas as Your Coach

I'm Thomas Cox. You might need me if you're a left-brained type leader—technical, analytical—and you stumble with the softer parts of leadership, the kind that demands feeling and intuition. I began as a business analyst, a database architect, and when I moved into leadership I became a jerk boss.

But I learned empathy. I combed through most leadership writings, and I found the tiny amount that works. I've spent twenty years refining this collection of working wisdom into a complete system.

Now, I can guide someone technical, a lawyer, doctor, scientist, or analyst, who wants to lead. Especially those managing other managers, because that's an even greater challenge.

If you're serious about getting results, we should talk.
