1. Personal Leadership Coaching

Offered In-person and Virtually

Coaching is a collaborative conversation, built on mutual trust, with the goal of facilitating the development of a person - who is then capable of achieving their intended goals.

The Coaching process is part Mastery and part Mystery.

It's part Mastery, in that proven methodologies and techniques must be employed with skill.
It's part Mystery, in that it's also an improvisational journey of discovery, for both coach and client.
The RisingPath approach to personal leadership coaching includes the following:


  • Executives/Senior Leaders
  • Program/Project Managers
  • HiPo/Emerging Leaders


  • Increased Self-Awareness
  • Enhanced Performance
  • Stronger Community of Support


  • 360 Interview Feedback
  • Bi-Weekly / One-Hour Sessions

The Personal Excellence Program (PEP) is an award-winning development program and has been successfully building personal and professional excellence capabilities since 2006, within several global corporations and thousands of leaders across diverse cultures in the USA, Asia, Canada and Europe.

At the heart of the PEP experience is the intention to Become Fully Alive... which entails Vertical Development (head, heart and body), a Community of supportive people and Time.  

The PEP program unfolds over the course of seven to ten months and offers a blend of large group workshops, facilitated small group discussions, individual coaching sessions and peer coaching as the structured learning environment.

Participants select a Skill and Quality they want to cultivate, observe themselves in real-time to gain insight/self-awareness, and then practice new behaviors to establish new habits and develop mastery.

"I was privileged to take part in Ruben's Personal Excellence Program during which I explored some fundamental issues in my professional and personal life.

Ruben was able to dissect my issues with keen insight and provided sage counsel and encouragement. I came away with a much clearer understanding of things that were holding me back as well as tools to address these and other roadblocks.

I continually reflect on my time with Ruben and apply his teachings on a daily basis."

"PEP has brought sustained growth and a vibrant learning culture to my organization. Though PEP, we are now smarter, more agile, and more responsive.

There is greater collaboration across functions; customer relationships have improved, employee engagement is noticeably higher, and we are better positioned to respond to change and lead technological innovation."
