Achieve Your Goals by Helping Others Achieve Theirs

RealTime Coaching is a simple, practical approach to working with others. It gives anyone who supervises, manages, or advises people an alternative to choosing either a “hard” or “soft” approach to dealing with problems and opportunities. RealTime Coaching is friendly, firm, and fair—and it works.

A RealTime coach works with the assumption that both the needs of the person and the organization are important. This win-win approach taps the true source of individual power: intrinsic motivation. Self-evaluation replaces judgment. Commitment replaces compliance. Responsibility stays with the person doing the work.

RealTime Coaching helps you:

  • Lead change with better employee engagement
  • Deal with challenging people in a positive way
  • Complete projects that were off track
  • Resolve interpersonal conflicts 
  • Build trust with those you lead and advise
  • Engage employee commitment 
  • Increase personnel retention 
  • Improve teamwork


What sets RealTime Coaching apart is the crisp, clear and effective writing style.  Beginning with “WDIP,”  Ryan and Randy present their concepts in a manner that makes them not only easy to remember, but almost impossible to forget.  There is just enough repetition to drive home the key points, and the lack of “fluff and filler” ensures that the reader’s mind remains fully engaged from start to finish.
Definitely a worthwhile read for anyone who relies on the success of others in both business and personal life.
