What we do
We help successful individuals achieve positive lasting change for themselves, their people and their teams.
Our clients are achievers who are viewed as crucial to their organizations’ success. They choose coaching because they want to become even more effective. Together, we focus on developing leadership behaviors that will continue to increase their value.
How we do it
Stakeholder feedback – Most coaching assignments begin with a comprehensive 360 behavioral assessment of the client’s key stakeholders. This input generates valuable insights on how the client is perceived and the biggest opportunities for growth. The results establish the benchmark for measuring progress.
Key growth opportunities – Using the input gathered from the assessment, the client chooses one-to-three specific goals that they are passionate about achieving.
Actionable plan – The plan is developed by the client with the coach’s support. It includes the specific goal(s) to be worked on, how success will be measured and the action steps to be taken.
Accountability – Research consistently shows that few people achieve positive change without ongoing follow-up. Most fall prey to the pressures of the day and go right back to doing what they were doing. Weekly coaching calls that center on progress, experiential learning and problem solving provide the ongoing attention and accountability clients need to stay on track and make measurable progress.
Quantifiable results – Two 360 Progress Assessments are conducted: an interim one at six months and a follow-up at 12-months. This stakeholder feedback provides measurable data on changes in the leader’s behavior.
