Pacific Palisades, CA – Joel Berman is an executive leadership coach who works with talented executives to help them take their management skills and leadership ability to another level.

Berman specializes in “Impact Coaching,” which starts with three questions: “Where are you now? Where do you want to go? How do you get there?”

“We talk about what they want to accomplish in their business immediately in their day to day areas,” says Berman, “but we also discuss what they want to get better at, how to manage their time, how to manage their team. We talk about longer term goals and what they want to accomplish, skills they want to develop to position them for continued growth down the road.”

Berman spent most of his career at Paramount Pictures as president of worldwide TV distribution before transitioning into consulting work and one-on-one coaching for TV and media businesses.

“I'd love to go back and do it again. There are so many things I know now that I didn’t know then,” recalls Berman.

Five years ago, Berman completely shifted to executive coaching and hasn’t looked back.

“People in general want to be on a growth curve,” says Berman. “What makes people happy is continuing to evolve and grow. You don't have to have an exact game plan, but what are the skills you need to develop to get there?”

Berman works with clients one-on-one and offers group coaching as well.

“What I mostly enjoy is seeing people become aware of their strengths, aware of their weaknesses and being able to articulate where they need to grow,” says Berman.
