Unlock the Potential in People

Meet Floyd

Hi! I'm Floyd Phillips, and I'm passionate about helping others succeed. As the manager of an IT Engineering team and a leadership coach, it is my responsibility to unlock the potential in people to maximize their performance. Over the past five years, my focus has been on performance coaching and career growth.


My overall strategy for increasing organizational performance is “Don’t push on the reinforcing (growth) process, instead remove (or weaken) the source of the limitation.”  This is better known in Systems Thinking as the Limits to Growth archetype in Peter Senge’s book The Fifth Discipline.


In layperson terms, stop constructing new productivity and engagement processes and start figuring out how to remove the behaviors currently holding your team back from growth and development (Performance Blockers!)

Raleigh, NC is where I call home - you can find me floating on the water at a local Raleigh lake (Falls, Jordan, or Harris) or inshore fishing near the coast or in an inlet.


I publish short leadership videos and messages throughout the week (which you can follow on my LinkedIn). These have received many positive comments from fellow professionals. I hope you enjoy them.

Let’s start a conversation…send an email to FloydAPhillips@gmail.com or use the contact form at the bottom of this page. I will set up a 30-minute call to learn more about how I can help you remove the performance blockers currently holding your team back from natural growth and development.
