Phil Barker is a veteran of the IT industry, having served more than 20 years as an IT professional. Through his professional experience, Phil realized that, as his career evolved with promotions and managerial roles, he was not fully prepared for the challenges and specialized skillsets required for effective people leadership.
Still maintaining his full-time roles, Phil returned to school for a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership, a master’s degree in Coaching and Consulting and an MBA. While his many degrees and certifications have given him the skillset necessary to effectively coach others, it’s Phil’s day-to-day experience as a team player, manager, coach, and leader in large organizations that empower him to help his clients realize effective change.
Phil started U90 Coaching with the idea of coaching his clients in the technical (hard and soft) skills they need to tactically reach – and exceed – their goals, both in their personal and professional lives.
