Executive Coaching – Apache Corporation

Apache Corporation, founded in 1954, is a global oil and gas exploration and production company. They hired Joel from the Incrementa team for some executive coaching. Him and his team members, facilitated multiple leadership sessions for Apache managers around the world.

Executive Coaching Project

Joel was engaged by Apache to develop Apache’s first official suite of global leadership programs. These action learning programs focused on interviewing & hiring, goals & metrics, and performance management & coaching. We facilitated these sessions for hundreds of Apache managers around the world, including Houston, Lafayette, Midland, Tulsa, and Calgary, Buenos Aires, and Aberdeen (North Sea).


Joel Shapiro has provided development consulting to Apache over the last several years; first in Canada, then to the United States and later this year in the United Kingdom. The phrase may be cliché, yet Joel is a true partner in developing and delivering managerial training that is pragmatic and fits the culture of Apache Corporation. Initially, Apache framed our practical, foundational objectives with Joel and then later worked with his model to refine the training for the specific regions and audiences to which the courses were targeted. Initially he created and delivered two programs in Calgary, Canada and now he provides customized management training to our employees across the globe. Obviously we value his work and approach!”

Awesome course. I have found myself applying your techniques just about every day in some form or another. I will continue to use your tools and reference the course guidelines to continuously improve on my communication skills and working with others as a team to achieve “well above” marginal results in my daily life and Apache Corporation too. Thanks again, I really enjoyed the seminar as well as your delivery. [And from Chris’s internal letter to his manager:] The training course was phenomenal and I was able to take away valuable tools that can be used for the career oriented benefit for which the course is designed as well as applying the tools to everyday life situations. Apache has spent their time and money well on Joel Shapiro. I appreciate the opportunity to have attended this awesome course and hope to utilize the tools and reference them to continually raise the bar on my performance in the years to come.”
