Are you looking to:
Be a more effective leader
Achieve organizational alignment
Learn soft skills to complement your hard skills
Improve your ability to be a technical co-founder
Find more fulfillment
If so, but you don't know how, or you need to get better, coaching can help. My name is Josh Forman. I've been managing engineering teams for 15 years and coaching for over 5 years.
You know how to improve. You have a track record of excelling at engineering tasks. That's how you got here, right?
You studied engineering. Did you study leadership? Did anyone ever teach you anything about it?
If you put a fraction of your engineering rigor into increasing your people and leadership skills, you would see results quickly.
The majority of my clients make incremental improvements after the first session.

I work with people in two primary realms - the internal and the external. We'll set goals to achieve in each of these realms and we'll explore how they relate to each other. The coaching sessions will also reveal the internal and external challenges as they arise in your day-to-day. Click the links below to learn more.

Since every situation is unique, I start with questions meant to reveal new perspectives about your particular circumstances.
You bring the knowledge and experience of your system. I'll bring years of management education and direct management experience, training in humanistic psychology, brain science research, mindfulness, and an active ear.
Together, we co-create a powerful space of reflection and insight to reveal potential solutions and new paths forward.
Adam, CTO & Co-Founder
I am a better leader now. I was confused and frustrated. Josh gave me space to surface and confront the self-defeating behaviors I didn't know were there. His gentle yet structured approach allows me to make habitual leadership improvements. My team has noticed.
Charlie, Founder & CTO
Working with Josh, I gained skills to help me through new and unique managerial challenges - first as a new manager, then as Founder & CTO of my own VC-funded company.
Logan, Principal Engineer
Josh is like my engineering therapist. Working through technical and organizational problems, I am better able to discover new perspectives and use them to define myself as a leader within my organization.
I wrote my first code as a curious kid on an Apple II Plus in the early 80s. In 1994, I started my career as an engineer. Curiosity about how people work steered me into engineering management over 15 years ago. I have been a leadership coach for the past five years. I have a bachelors in Physics, a Master's in Organizational Leadership, and over 20 years of study in humanistic psychology, based primarily on the work of Virginia Satir, a pioneer in human systems thinking. I have attended and facilitated over 400 days of personal growth, career development, and leadership training around the world. In my career, I have held multiple leadership roles in technology startups. I am an Agile Leadership Journey Guide and have trained extensively with Crafted Leadership. I am excited to share the tools of discovery that I have used to help others, and myself.
It's better to talk to someone who gets the engineering mindset.
