What kind of coaching do you do?

Ideal client & kinds of help/problems you like to solve
For Mentoring / Coaching clients the phase of the company isn't relevant - the development needs of the individual are what counts. For Fractional CTO / VP of Engineering clients, or Engineering Strategy clients I am typically a good fit for 0-30-ish people companies. The domain and type of product are less relevant than the phase of the company but I do have expertise in Payments, SaaS (both B2b and B2c), security and content management.
Preferred coaching structure
My most common structure is a periodic 1 hour consultative call 1-3 times / month. Typically the client will send topics a day or two ahead so that we are aligned from the beginning and get off to a quick start each hour. I'm happy to work async as well, but haven't done that in practice.
Who can't you help?
For Mentoring / Coaching clients I'm not a good fit if the person has the support and growth networks they need already in place. For Fractional CTO / VP of Engineering clients, I am not a good fit if the company has the Engineering leadership breadth and depth they need already in place.
