In 1994 Vikki G. Brock saw the need for coaches to assist people as companies transitioned to a more participative leadership style. In 1995, she left her 21-year career at The Boeing Company to start VB Coaching & Consulting with the mission of providing premier coaching services to leadership.
The foremost subject matter expert on the roots and emergence of the coaching field, Dr. Brock is the author of Sourcebook of Coaching History; speaks internationally, and is regularly published in professional magazines. Vikki provides sessions face-to-face at client sites and by telephone from her 50’ TriStar sailboat named Cuidado, which is moored in Ventura Harbor about an hour north of Los Angeles, California.
Vikki’s sweet spot is respectfully provoking individuals to take their leadership (and their life) to the next level. Using a consultative coaching style, Vikki is direct while being respectful, challenging in a non-judgmental way, and believes that people learn and grow most rapidly in a fun environment. When you become Vikki’s client, her loyalty is to you – – and what you talk about is 100% confidential. The only way others will know you are working with a coach is by changes in your attitude, behavior, activity, results, and communication – or if you share with them that you are working with a coach.
Examples of Vikki’s creativity include Active Legacy®, a coaching program she developed to help people recognize their behavior is their legacy, and she co-developed 5E™ Leadership program, an inside out approach to self-leadership and improving authentic presence.
Her philosophy is that each person creates the movie that is their life – sometimes consciously and many times unconsciously – and that this movie is their legacy. She further believes that your legacy is actively created moment-by-moment through choices and actions according to your values and beliefs. Thus, clients who work best with Vikki are those who wish to consciously live an Active Legacy®.
Vikki coaches big picture shifts. Her coaching is grounded in authenticity, strengthen by solid business acumen, and transforming through sharp questioning. I know that my life is richer and happier, more courageous, effective and aware, my game bigger as a result of working with Vikki.”
