Lead Your Team to Success
Using the Coaching Way
The Coaching Way: Your Game Plan
Like a 4-quarter sport, your mayorship journey follows a pattern of milestones. Sometimes, if not defined, these can blend together resulting in a lost opportunity to tweak your game plan and strengthen your tactics and strategy.
As your coach I will help you craft your game plan so that each quarter is designed to inspire, excite, educate and empower your leadership along the mayoral journey. Also like the flow of a game, your term may have twists and turns calling for you to adapt and adjust. Your Coaching Way is designed to flow with you.
Like the Quarterback, a Mayor must adapt
on the fly to the flow of the game.
Which quarter are you in?
1st Quarter Game Plan
Setting You Up For Success
When you first take office, you hit the ground running. You're given a group of people to work with that you didn't choose, so your first order of business is to bring everyone together as one cohesive team.
You'll have many milestones on your journey, and as an example here is how we can tackle one...your team's focus.
Communicate Your Magnetic Vision to Build Momentum
Some visionary traits that we'll work on together:
Your vision sets your apart from the management team.
Using the mind for its primary purpose, for deep thinking and developing ideas.
Help others see the opportunities
You have a keen eye for seeing the uniqueness in ordinary things and finding inspiration in everything around you
Making Stuff Happen
Visionaries have an incredible ability to make an impact in a short amount of time.
Establishing Your Rhythm
Like any coach, you drill and practice with your team. You learn about each of your player's strengths and weaknesses then strategically place them in their optimal positions.
The Coaching Way equips you with tips, tools and strategies to work together and win...to be the head coach.
Transform Your Leadership -

Casting the vision and getting buy in to focus on a common goal.
Using negotiation and conflict management skills to handle those who detract from the overall team performance.

Being the Difference Maker
Your mission is to make your community a better place. You've got the vision. You've got the team. Now it's time to implement!

Creating a feedback loop to track and measure progress frees you up to do more with less effort.
Celebrating wins as a team drives motivation.
Preparing for What's Next

Master Your Next Skill Set
Preparing for the next election or...
Now that you've accomplished some pretty cool projects, it's time to decide what's next. Another term or a brand new adventure? Either way, let's start mastering your next skill set.
Focusing on leaving a lasting legacy
As mayor, you've had a unique opportunity to make the world a better place. This is your story, your legacy, something to be proud of.
4th Quarter Game Plan
Leadership is not an experience,
it's about building relationships
The Coaching Way Program
My coaching style is fun, relaxed, intuitive and super powerful. We can call it inside-out coaching. I help you see that you are living in the world of your thinking but that there's a world beyond your thinking. As your thinking partner I'll help you uncover some of the limiting beliefs and old stories you've inherited and banish them to the wilderness.
The centre piece of my approach is your wellness. We'll work toward the balance between the 3 elements of your Inner Game; Body, Emotions and Mindset and your Outer Game; Environment, Relationships and Ideas. You are ultimately powerful when balancing your BEMERI.
Some of the questions we'll explore together include:
1. What's on your mind. And what else? - diving deep into what you're wondering about.
2. What's the real challenge here for you? - finding the root of your challenge.
3. What do you want? - I'm listening...very deeply to help you find clarity.
4. How can I help? - What got you here won't get you there. I help you reframe.
5. If you're saying Yes to this, than what are you saying No to? Finding balance.
Both the 6 and 12-month Coaching Program is for mayors who seek to strengthen leadership, balance the Inner and Outer Game and build your suite of skills designed for your next adventure. It provides hands-on guidance to dramatically accelerate your progress. The program includes:
Promoting the care of oneself, one's community and our planet.
"As your thinking partner, together we will rediscover your why, co-create new mindsets, breakthrough blocks, laugh, invent and thrive."
- Coach Hubicki
Together, we open opportunities, introduce your potential and uncover your options for personal growth.
What would a hack of your mindset look like? Ready to look up? Look higher? Look further?
How do you want to show up to your mayorship—and to your life?
The Coaching Program costs $6,000 (6 months) or $12,000 (12 months).
This engagement is a good option for mayors who'd like a non-political thinking partner to work with privately. The structured approach keeps you on track and helps you avoid costly mistakes that can waylay your progress. I offer a safe space to explore your hopes, goals, development gaps, disappointments and roadblocks without judgment.
