Where Strategy Meets The Bottom-Line


"People need to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed." Samuel Johnson

As one client stated "All our other consultants stand on their side of the river and shout advice about how to cross it; Bridgepoint coaches stand on our side of the river and help us get across."

Our Coaches


Our Coaches


Our coaches share our belief that people hold the key to success in any organization. They are driven to help organizations and individuals reach their full organizational, professional and personal goals. They have a proven ability to work with individuals and teams throughout all levels of an organization, from hourly operators to the CEO.

We provide a wide array of services to our individual and organizational clients. Coaching is always a unique and varied experience for every participant, so we carefully craft the coaching relationship with each client‘s particular needs and objectives in mind. 

The power of coaching within an organization is that it is designed to develop and enhance the ability of the organization’s people – its employees, executives and leaders – to achieve the company’s objectives with exponentially greater velocity and clarity. Bridgepoint’s main focus is to identify and transform anything that constrains growth and development – both with respect to the organization and its individual leaders.

The Process


The Process


We know that senior management wishing something to happen doesn’t make it so—it is critical for several layers in the organization to be motivated and enabled to move, convinced the direction is correct and invested in the overall plan. We do that well, working with people at all levels in an organization. As one client said: "Every consultant focuses on the corner office—that’s obvious. But you also work with our whole organization, so when we are ready to move we can move faster."

We start from your situation and customize everything we do. We help you find the best way for your organization to solve the challenge at hand. The ideas, approaches, and methods we bring to bear on client problems are the most sophisticated and powerful in the world, but we apply them in a highly pragmatic and customized way. We also train our people to tackle hard issues with great empathy. As one client said: "Our guys can tend to avoid tough political issues. But somehow Bridgepoint coaches get the hard questions on the table in a way that enables us to talk about them productively. That is really something."

Johnny is a true “visionary”, but also extremely practical, meticulous, detail-oriented, encouraging, and a leader at every stage of the process…Johnny has a knack for really making the entire team know the value of their contribution - not just with a simple “great job team” at the end, but by coming along side throughout the process - ensuring everyone has a clear goal, the tools to accomplish what needs to be done, and someone to escalate to if there are problems.

In a nutshell, the proof that justifies the “reason why” of coaching:

- the benefits of coaching mostly last forever and can be immediate
- the ROI is among highest of any type of investment (usually over 500%)
- the cost of not doing it and working with average employees is significant (see below exact references)
- coaching accelerates penetration of a “winning attitude” in businesses and organizations.

Executive coaching is a fantastically smart tool to gain competitive edge during an economic crisis and at the advent of a new economic cycle.

• In 2001 a research on over 100 executives, mostly from Fortune 1000 companies, found the company experienced on average a 600% Return on Investment (ROI) when they provided their executives with 1-on-1 executive coaching and leadership development.

The executives reported directly saving or making an average of $100,000 for every $15,000 to $20,000 spent on their coaching, in addition to other intangible benefits such as enhanced morale, improved interpersonal relationships, and a stronger leadership team.

• A 2002 study of mid-size companies found an average ROI of over 520% for management and leadership coaching initiatives.

• The Denver Post reports that a Manchester survey of 140 companies shows 9 in 10 executives believe coaching is worth their time and dollars, with an average return of more than $5 for each $1 spent.

• Companies who invest in developing their people consistently outperform companies who do not by an average of 35% every year! (research by the American Society of Training and Development)

• Companies with higher investment in employee development have lower turnover (Carroll Lachnit, Training magazine, September, 2001)

• Top performers produce up to 48% more output than average performers and up to 96% more than below average performers (“The validity and utility of selection methods in personnel psychology“ – Psychological Bulletin, Sept 1998)

• Top performers or “A” players in any function (not just employees in sales generating or billable positions) create from 80% to 130% more value than “C” players (Michaels, Handfield-Jones and Axelrod, 2001)

• Dr. Brian Underhill, an industry-recognized expert in the design and management of worldwide executive coaching implementations, found in a research study from 2008 that:

43% of CEOs and 71% of senior executives report working with a coach
63% of contacted organizations plan to increase their use of coaching over the next five years
92% of leaders being coached say they plan to use a coach again

• The 2006 annual learning and development survey published by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) found that: 79% of respondents used some form of coaching activity

• Even The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) saw the importance of effective Executive Coaching when, in 2004, they announced a five-year plan to implement an agency-wide executive coaching program.

One of the biggest questions executives have is:

“Why should I develop people, many of them will leave the company later on? What good is that to me?”

First, if you invest in people you have more chances they will stay.

And then, a bigger question you should ask is: “What if you don’t develop them and they stay?”
