“Mark was my executive coach in 2022. I sincerely enjoyed working with him, and the results I achieved due to his coaching were very tangible! I recommend working with Mark if you have a specific challenge you are working through, and your normal tactics have either stalled and/or you are not getting the results you want. Mark’s style and approach worked extremely well for me, and I’m confident it will for you too! When I need executive coaching support in the future, Mark will be the first person I call!”

Mark Daly | Executive Coach Boise Idaho

Hello, I’m Mark Daly.

Owning and managing a successful financial advisory practice for 29 years gave me unique insight into human behavior.  By hosting hundreds of phone calls, client interviews, and personal planning sessions, I learned a great many things about people – what makes them tick, how they think, their attitudes toward risk, money, family, careers, and personal goals. 

My mission is to help executives ask the right questions, maximize impact, gain financial success, and maintain balance in their lives.

Frequent Questions

How does executive coaching work?

We all encounter difficult situations and individuals in our personal and professional lives. Coaching creates a trusted, confidential relationship between coach and client.  Through a process of inquiry and personal discovery the coach seeks to build client awareness and responsibility by providing accountability, support and feedback.

What’s the greatest advantage to coaching?

The certified professional coach is a valuable thought partner and confidant that assists clients in working through problems and situations that can occur at work and in life.  Often the coach is the only true non-biased and honest person available to ask questions, provide unvarnished feedback, and offer constructive advice.

Why do professionals, executives and business owners hire a coach?

Coaches partner with clients in a safe, non-judgmental setting.  This partnership takes clients through a creative, thought provoking process that inspires them to achieve their maximum personal and professional potential.  Leading companies are willing to contribute financially to long term growth and success of team members because they care deeply about top performers and want them to succeed., thereby contributing to the long-term growth and success of the business.

What is a coaching session like? What can the coaching client expect from you?

Posing powerful questions may expand new and different ways of thinking about a problem and how to solve it.  Challenging current ways of thinking and values systems can expose ineffective attitudes and behaviors that hold us back.  The coach may share thoughts, feelings and possible solutions by using metaphor, mirrors and analogy.  A good coach will never impose their solutions or personal opinions on the client.

What happens at the end of a session?

Closing each session in a professional caring way is essential.  Developing an action plan, outlining next steps and scheduling the next coaching appointment are common practices.  Homework and practice techniques may be assigned.  The coach may check in between coaching sessions to inquire about progress and obstacles.

What is the coach’s role in each session?

The coach commits to making every appointment and to advocate on behalf of the client.  In many relationship’s coaches are the only reliable, honest source of feedback the client will have.  The coach agrees to prepare for each session, be fully present during the session, while demonstrating empathy, energy and commitment.  Active listening is essential.
