Why is Mitchell McClellan the go-to performance coach for so many top leaders in finance, law, business, and diplomacy? His exceptional track record in aiding high-powered clients to surpass their professional expectations, while also enhancing their personal lives. He optimizes individual potential through a holistic approach that integrates physical training with behavioral change, while always emphasizing emotional well-being.
Coaching, as Mitchell sees it, is at its best an art form, composed of many different and subtle parts, refined over years of experience. It begins with deep listening, an effort to discover who the client is, their preferences, and their pain points. With time that receptivity transforms into a vigorous, intellectual pursuit of relevant information in regard to the client’s desired outcome. Which is why a great coach must possess extraordinary emotional intelligence, in addition to a strong analytical drive. He needs to understand the nuance and complexity of relationships, not to mention how body language, mood, and other unspoken, implied behaviors affect situations, along with real world factors. Still, in Mitchell’s estimation, the paramount element in a coach’s effectiveness is the strength of his relationship with the client. It’s that trust they share that enables a coach to assist the client in making the best decisions at any given moment.
Mitchell has plied his craft in exclusive gyms, private performance training centers, in-house at several financial firms, and on retainer while traveling with clients. Through these varied coaching venues, he has developed multiple programs and services specially targeted to enhance personal and organizational performance from the inside out.
