How Our Coaching Process Works

“Seek first to understand, and then to be understood” - Dr. Steven Covey

Our Coaching Process Starts with a Free Consultation to understand your needs and goals.

During this Free Consultation, we’ll develop a Program to meet those needs and goals.

The Programs are generally four, six or twelve months in duration.

Consultation and /or Coaching Sessions are held between 2 and 4 times per month, depending on the clients' schedule, preferences and scope of the engagement.

A comprehensive Assessment is completed.

A Strategy is jointly developed based on the Assessment and Goals.

An Action Plan is jointly developed that achieves the desired outcomes.

A Follow Up Plan is created to ensure that the achieved results are sustained for the long term.

How Our Consulting Process Works

Our objective is to increase sales, market share, or develop Strategic Alliances that help achieve the company’s goals or improve revenues. We also seek to remove obstacles to your company’s success by identifying the root causes of problems and developing long-term solutions.

Retainer Program

For clients who desire on-call access to Deon between sessions or after the conclusion of their engagement, a Retainer Program is available. This provides the client the flexibility to consult with Deon Monday through Friday by email, videoconference or phone during business hours.

Testimonials
What Others Say About Our Work

Clients of Bradley Coaching & Consulting include:

Gerald Tolliver, CEO

Gerald W. Tolliver  and Associates

Deon is a skilled marketing professional who is thorough and able to always supply the best needs to his customers. He enjoys his work and was born to sell. It has been a pleasure to know him my entire professional career. We have a lifelong friendship.


Morenga Hunt, Consulting

Former Vice President of Education, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, Charlotte, NC

Deon Bradley is a results-oriented professional, with high standards and a strong work ethic.  He has extensive experience and knowledge from his years as senior management in the private sector, where he focused on productivity and efficiency.  He also applied this focus and experience in his role as a non-profit executive director.  Yet, Deon’s commitment to “lifelong learning” led him to seek advice, guidance, and deeper understanding from others when faced with new or unique problems that he had to solve.  He is a professional colleague and a friend, whom I highly recommend to anyone seeking to advance their business results or operations.


Dinesh Desai

Retired Wealth Manager

Deon delivers. There are many consultants/coaches and countless books that
 give you general advice. Deon is just as competent, if not more, as most 
consultants. The difference is he zeroes in on specific solutions and pushes 
you to go for them. It is a far cry from someone just giving you general 
advice and leaving it up to you to follow through. We all know how 
ineffective that approach is.


Kimberly C. Pettiford, Certified Coach and Trainer

Professional & Personal Development Specialist, Empowering You to Achieve Life & Career Success, KimberlyCasey@Live.com

Deon is an attentive and personable career coach. His natural ability to help me clarify and prioritize career transformation options has allowed me to become “unstuck” and take actions that I feel really good about. I appreciate his kind direct, honest, and supportive approach that challenged me to believe in and go after what I really want.


Chris Davis, CEO

Collegiate Global Network

I have known Mr. Bradley since 2007, when I was a college freshman. He has coached me through many turning points in my life. To name a few…Div. II NCAA 60 meter Track and Field National Champion, Professional Track and Field Athlete, writing my first book, Career Coaching and starting a successful company called the Collegiate Global Network. If you want to see change in your business or your life look no further, Bradley Coaching & Consulting is the way.


Sharon Chambers

Artist and Sculptor

You will truly make a difference in the lives of many blind and visually- impaired people. I am proud to have worked with you. You are a true blessing to me. Know that with all that you are doing for others, blessings will come back to you ten-fold. For when we helped someone else, we are also helping ourselves– receiving gifts in return. God Bless you and continue to surround you. If I can be of any help to you please call on me. My deepest thanks, blessings and prayers always.
