My name is Alexander Van Buren and I am a leadership and executive coach.
I work with managers, executives, and entrepreneurs who want creative solutions to management, profitability, and team-related challenges.
I also help leaders stay at their best, manage their time more effectively, and maintain a healthy work-life balance.
My leadership and executive coaching packages are available in person, over the phone, or over the internet.
My Leadership and Executive Coach Background
I’m a trained behavioral modeler.
I use NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) to elicit the precise structure of how someone does something well. It took about 5 years to learn how to do well, and then things got very interesting.
I began modeling world-class managers, small business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs. That was more than 20 years ago.
Companies began hiring me to model their best salespeople, referral getters, and other top performers, then teach those unique success strategies to other people in their organizations. One company increased its annual sales by more than 200 million dollars in a few short years. Salespeople began taking home over a million dollars a year in take-home pay for the first time in their lives.
I quickly realized that modeled strategies are an entirely different level of resource from anything else. I like to say that ‘The problem with best practices is that all your competitors are doing them too.” However, very few of your competitors are using precise behaviorally modeled strategies from the best of the best.
Over the past 21 years, I’ve behaviorally modeled:
Tom Watson’s visionary strategy for creating IBM
Andre Aggasi’s rapid improvement strategy
The delegation process of a senior executive at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Sales champions for Bluegreen Corp.
Decision making and problem solving patterns
Time management experts
Top referral getters for Bluegreen Corp.
Top investment bankers at G.K. Baum, and many more.
Small business owners making 10x the industry average in income
Famous internet marketers making over a million dollars a year from a lap top
Bill Gates’ thinking patterns
Issa Asimov’s creativity and super-productivity (over 400 books written)
The Walt Disney creativity strategy and syntax
And many more
As a result, I have a goldmine of world-class strategies to offer you as a leadership and executive coach.

How To Inquire About My Coaching
The best way to get started is to shedule a 30-minute phone call with me. Let’s talk about your goals, your challenges and see if I can be an extraordinary resource for you and if we’re a good fit.
This is a complimentary call and for the purpose of exploring a possible coaching relationship.
If we both feel that I can be of service to you as a leadership and executive coach, then I will likely offer you a complimentary 1-hour coaching session so you can experience my coaching first hand.
