How it works
Our leadership coaching is customized to meet your goals and needs and those of your organization. Coaching usually happens one-on-one or in a leadership coaching circle. All of our programs begin with assessing your strengths and identifying the focus areas for your program. Next, we complete a foundation session where we identify core values and a vision for your life and leadership. This session provides you with a new sense of what drives you and how your values may be over or underutilized in your position. Next we meet biweekly for a minimum of six months and often for up to a year.
Coaching happens both in person and over the phone. Homework is assigned between sessions to deepen and sustain what you are learning. These mutually agreed upon assignments are based on your priorities and desired outcomes. Often we identify an organizational sponsor who gives you an internal sounding board for the work you are doing in the program. The substance of all coaching conversations is confidential so the primary communication regarding the success of the coaching will come directly from you.
What you gain
Our leadership programs will help you develop the presence to have the impact you want to have in the world. You will gain perspective, become more aware of your strengths, and better understand the self-limiting beliefs or reactive patterns in your leadership. Through conversation, exploration and practice you will clarify and move toward what you want for yourself, your team and your organization. You will not only gain new capacity to navigate your organization, but the resilience and presence to create a meaningful and impactful legacy.
