Supercharged Coaching (KAATN)
I’ve provided mentoring services since 1996 to a global constituency of entrepreneurs and boutique firm owners. I’ve provided sophisticated coaching to business executives since 1985.
I’m inviting those who are interested and qualified to participate in a “sea change” in my approach. As of January 1, 2013,all of my traditional mentoring work will be conducted by over 40 Master Mentors around the world, all of whom are “graduates” of the Mentor Program and all of whom were personally trained by me.
That frees me up to provide a new, very intensive development experience combining my executive coaching models with entrepreneurial and solo practitioner needs: Supercharged Coaching.
Whereas mentoring is reactive with the onus on the person being mentored to initiate contact, coaching is proactive, based on developmental needs, metrics for improvement, and timelines for accomplishment. I’ve engaged in such “affirmative” coaching with executives in Allergan, Calgon, Merck, Hewlett-Packard, Toyota, Mercedes, American Institute of Architects, New York Times, and State Street Bank, just to name a few of hundreds of client organizations.
What It Includes
I’ve kiddingly dubbed this KAATN (kick ass and take names). The coaching will include:
- A nine month engagement
- Creation of developmental behavioral and skills objectives
- Metrics for success
- Deadlines, timelines, and accountabilities
- Mandatory weekly phone calls
- Personal meetings as desired and we deem appropriate*
- Unlimited email
- Unlimited review of work
- Unlimited additional phone calls
In this relationship, I will call you, write to you, and haunt you if I must to help you achieve the specific goals we have agreed upon. These may be strategic (new markets, build the firm, create new brands) and/or tactical (role-play meetings, review presentation tapes, create better proposals).
Rather Important Output
Here’s the major point: We will work together on pre-determined goals—and may add additional goals—with me providing specifics on what you need to do, reviewing your work, and following up with you, prodding you, and proactively contacting you to generate accelerated progress.
Do you want to write a book? Create new web copy? Start and populate a blog? Penetrate a new market? Launch new media presence? Reduce your personal labor intensity? Save more money? Globalize your business or practice? Learn new OD skills? Resolve interpersonal issues undermining your performance? Better deal with your hard-earned success? Improve troubled relationships?
Then this is the accelerated approach for you.
Obviously, I’m taking on very few people and am offering this first to my communities.** KAATN is a nine-month, intensive coaching relationship to meet your important short-, medium-, and long-term business and personal goals.(My PhD is in psychology, and this coaching will include personal and family issues if you so desire. I’ve been providing this on request over the past several years.)
You may start at any time. There are no “breaks” or “freezes.” The program is ongoing for the nine months. We will be in contact weekly. Or, at least, I will!
The greatest investment you’ll make here is your commitment to respond to someone who is driving your progress, and to incorporate the needed actions into your life.
The financial investment is $17,000. That amount is payable in full on commencement. Or, you can pay $10,000 on commencement and $7,500 in 90 days. (Note that if the second payment is not made the program will stop with no refunds for any reason. Nor are there any refunds of any payments in this program for any reason unless I cancel your participation because I feel you do not want to be helped, which will provide a pro rata refund.)
(You may reserve a space with your payment to start at a designated time in the future, since this is limited participation. But we WILL start on the date you choose!)
“Thanks for your incredible help on the KAATN coaching programme. As you know, it’s transformed the quality, quantity, and conversion of my pipeline of business. On a personal level, I’ve really appreciated your skill in knowing when to push and when to allow me space for reflection. It’s been an invaluable experience, and I’m looking forward to the restart in September!”
Update following the September—February cycle:
“KAATN has been the game-changer! That pipeline is flowing, and I’m having a record year.”
2012 was record year for my business and personal earnings. After subscribing to more of Alan Weiss’s content and engaging him for Supercharged Coaching, I doubled that business in 2013, surpassing even my own aggressive goals. The topics covered in his one-hour teleconference with Aviv Shahar (October, 2014) will help transform your approach, mindset and results.
The New Sales Coach and author of New Sales. Simplified
Thank you for the services and support that you have provided throughout my recent immersion in your KAATN coaching programme. My approach to business and the recognition of the value of my expertise have both matured considerably. I am chuffed to report that I have this month confirmed and invoiced two new key clients. Both of whom have significant ‘fourth sale’ potential and will provide me with excellent referral opportunities.
I had the opportunity this week to reflect with Andy Bass upon the value of the process. This reflection, combined with your summary email of June 25th, has convinced me that I might have been premature in ceasing KAATN at this time. Am I too late to take up the extension offer that you made?
@90 Degrees Limited
In endorsement of KAATN, I’m having my best year ever:
- My first seven-figure year.
- Virtually nil “non-sweet spot” business (in other words, I’m not doing ANY projects where I’m left thinking, “Why am I doing this?”).
- Building my thought leadership amongst existing clients (people are now quoting my book & blog back to me).
Thanks Alan. I look forward to more.
Alan Weiss’s KAATN program has given me a black belt in acquiring new business and, as a result, I’m having a record year. It pays to learn from the grand master.

I enjoy working with you!
You can add me to your testimonials—since working with you for three months, I’ve taken in checks nearly the total of my first three years!
Call or write me to discuss participation. If you’ve already been in my Mentor Community, you may sign up directly. If I have any questions or concerns about your participation, I’ll contact you before processing your payment.
* For international people, we will use Skype if you and I won’t otherwise be in physical proximity over the time frame.
** While I didn’t anticipate Growth Cycle members to enroll in this, I’ve been wrong before, and two already have, so be assured that the Growth Cycle discounts would apply so long as you’re active in that program.
