ALVARO BURGOS New York, New York
Leadership Coach, Career Coach, Entrepreneurship Coach
BA, MBA, EXECUTIVE COACH, NYU
When I started my coaching practice, my vision was to help people achieve sustainable change in a matter of months rather than years, and that vision underpins everything I do; I am passionate about helping my clients solve challenges and I work with them to transform their professional lives and consequently, their personal lives as well.
Prior to founding my Coaching Company (ABC&C), I spent over 20 years working in Corporate America within industries, such as Consumer Goods (3M), Pharmaceutical (Merck & Co.), and Biotechnology (Roche-Genentech). With a solid background in business management (strategic planning, sales and marketing execution), I have an in depth understanding of leadership, communication and organizational development.
Drawing on my experience as a business manager, leading teams from 5 to 300 hundred people, -both direct and cross-functional-, has given me the knowledge and necessary tools to work with different cultures, languages, backgrounds and career paths, understanding the struggles of the everyday responsibilities and the challenges that individuals face in a fast moving, constantly changing professional environment.
The foundation of my relationships with clients is based on trust, integrity, accountability and partnership. My clients trust me to collaborate with them; together we overcome the challenges they are facing, facilitate their ability to access their highest thinking levels, in order to achieve powerful, transformational and sustainable change.

Alvaro has been my coach for the past 9 months. I have explored new horizons on a professional level, improved enormously my communications skills and analyzed the balance between my work life and my personal life in order to find new interests in both. Alvaro’s approach to coaching goes always an extra step to bring up the very last drop of my thoughts. His highly intelligent way of engaging with me at each session, puts him in the list of one of the best professionals I know. Thanks to Alvaro, I am truly becoming a better version of myself.

Having Alvaro as my Coach has been a wonderful experience. I was immediately engaged by his ability to detect the real challenge I needed to focus on. He really is very efficient at developing powerful conversations that moved me into action and helped me not only to ensure that change happened, but to make it sustainable over time. I am glad to have him by my side to continue develop myself to my fullest potential

My work with Alvaro was time bound and focused. Through our conversations and homework exercises I progressively gained courage and confidence to consider starting a project on my own, and to face inner fears and desires. His questions and feedback made me think long term and with realism about my next professional steps. I felt truly listened to, accompanied, and at the same time pushed to explore deeper.
