How to Choose an Executive Coach

CEO Shane Perry Shares His Executive Coach Journey

Guest Post by Shane Perry

They say experience is the best teacher, but everyone has their blind spots, especially when your name’s attached with the acronym CEO.

Despite year’s of technical knowledge, working in various roles and functions. 

These blind spots and pitfalls are the primary reason why many renowned and prominent leaders seek out a mentor or executive coach. But how do you find the right executive coach for you?

I’m Shane Perry, the CEO and Financial Specialist at Max Funding.


I chose Dr. Harper as an executive coach because she has a reputation for smashing limiting beliefs. There were sessions where I could feel the blocks release.

I Was Rigorous in My Search…

And I wanted share my approach to finding the best mentor or executive coach. Here are my top 3:

A ‘Reputable Executive Coach’ is Different to a ‘Coach’

I realized coaches are a dime a dozen, they can get accreditation for $100 on Udemy!

I believe the best executive coach has credentials, but more importantly they have raving fans who excitedly share their growth experiences

They Have Experience in the Areas I Want to Develop

A great coach can guide you, a phenomenal mentor has invaluable insights they’re willing to share with you – that’s priceless!

Talking to an executive coach’s former clients is the easiest way to learn about their authentic offering

Has a PROVEN Framework

I realized there are a lot of ‘coach-in-a-box’ service offerings. I wanted to work with someone who is a thought leader, was strategic, and magic in their approach

I’m an ever-evolving work in progress. I let curiosity, questions, and passion lead me on the scavenger hunt of life.

I realized a long time ago that there is no perfect time to take action to experience what I crave. But there are millions of aligned moments that make now the right time to feel gratitude for the existing expression of those desires.

I’m currently working on bringing more softness into my life. Focus on being, and only doing through inspiration.  I’ll admit it’s a challenge to give up my do-aholic addiction as there’s a part of me that fears I’ll get stuck. 

But what I’m learning is life is a lot easier, congruent, and flowing when I surrender to the living whole-heartedly instead of being bullied by my mind.

My desire it to revel in life and experience moments (or even a lifetime) of love, awe, joy, fulfilment, and peace. And, that is what my purposeful work focuses on, that expression within myself, and to invite you to clarify and revel in your own desires.
