Arch Fuston Coaching
The Vulnerabold™ Employee Coaching Program
We come into our roles with biases, baggage, and behaviors conditioned over time. Most of the time they don't reveal themselves in a problematic way. Some times, they do. Being able to work beyond the role and coach the human is paramount to moving people forward in the workplace.
I know the rigors and demands of corporate America. The first 25+ years of my career were spent managing and leading there. That experience, combined with the knowledge of human performance, provides your people with a resource that transforms and elevates. As a former employee wellness director, coaching is the single greatest added benefit you can provide your people.
How we'll get there.
Demand v. Capacity
Stress is a response to a real or perceived threat. Often, that "threat" is the accumulation of demands one has on them. When those demands (or perception of demands) outweigh their capacity to endure them, stress, anxiety, and burnout show up. Increasing one's capacity--not so they can do more--but to do even better with what they have--is a gift they'll keep forever. And everyone benefits from it.
Connect to career values.
Both not knowing or being disconnected from one's career values is the barrier to fulfillment. Values are personal: Each one of us must identify and understand what we value in a career, and work to fulfill those values. And when a manager is aware of one of their contributor's career values...That's when performance takes off.
Fortifying career identity.
"If I was more curious, I'd be better at my role." We are a collection of the qualities we associate with. Smart or stupid, creative or confined, we all have them and they either move us forward or hold us back. What's fascinating to know is that this is not fixed. If I needed to be more strategic in my role, I could increase my level of certainty about being strategic, which would elicit strategic thoughts and behaviors. By surfacing the subconscious structures of how we "see" ourselves, and new level of "you" is ready to be released.
The quality of our communication is the response we get.
Threat or thrive. That's how we're received by those we interact with. And "threat" to one person may not register as such to another. Learning how to communicate in a way that supports a thrive-based response is as much an art as it is a skill, as it's full of self-awareness, intention, and delivery. I help all levels of employee become thrive-based communicators.
Build a new relationship with stress and anxiety.
Save the best for last, right? If ever there was an achilles heal for progress to personal well-being, it's these two. Yet, as much pain and discomfort that's associated with them, their intention isn't to hurt--it's to help ensure you "survive." The first step in changing our experience of stress and anxiety is changing our relationship with them. Doing so has a cascading affect on our entire human experience.
"Arch is extremely gifted and talented at what he does. I have grown significantly as a leader and human being because of my work with him. Arch has provided me with the skills to communicate and inspire my team in more meaningful and inspirational ways. He has helped me identify the opportunity that exists in every interaction to put people in a state to help them thrive.
Arch also works with other members of our leadership team and has been instrumental in helping them individually and organizationally. They all rave about the experience and feel privileged and thankful for the opportunity to learn from him. He has helped build a common language and create a unified blueprint for leadership within our organization.
I believe our work with Arch was instrumental in our company getting back on the SDBJ’s Best Places to Work list in 2020. I can directly attribute improved culture and performance to him as well. Personal and organizational growth is always a work in progress, but I could not ask for a better performance coach than Arch. I highly recommend him to anyone and any organization that takes corporate culture and conscious leadership seriously."

Partnering with an organization as a coaching resource is something I take great responsibility with. I also have a great understanding of the dynamic between employee and employer, and how to coach in a manner that serves both.
Coaching is a gift an organization can give to its people as long as confidentiality is honored, an ability to change is respected, and time for change is provided. There's responsibilities by both the organization and employee to ensure positive change is made. I'll take great care in guiding your people to it.
