The best and highest-performing organizations have the strongest leadership. But how do you actually grow leaders today?

Coaching can help you build capacity and capability to maximize productivity and impact. According to recent surveys, 78 percent of leaders reported one-on-one or group coaching with a professional coach was extremely or very helpful in meeting change management goals. (Human Capital Institute, 2018) Coaching has also proven to generate a 7 times return on investment. (PWC, 2015)

Through a strengths-based approach, a certified coach* can help you grow productivity, executive presence, influence and self-awareness and also help improve critical outcomes for your organization.

Connecting to Values and Life Purpose

Coaching is not just about what you do—it’s also about who you are as a leader and what is most important. Together, we will work toward concrete goals, connecting those goals to deeply held values and personal mission or purpose. You might focus on growing personal resilience, change readiness, or self-confidence, or skills for that next level of leadership — managing stress or strengthening relationships.

Exploring What’s Important

Through coaching, we will explore powerful questions that are most meaningful to you. What are you tolerating that you might want to change? What are you learning about yourself as leader? Where have you been fearless? How do you want to be investing your time? What leap do you need to make?

Leadership Circle Profile 360

The Leadership Circle Profile (LCP) is a coaching tool that can help you understand who you are as a leader and how to grow and expand effectiveness. With the help of relevant feedback from peers, direct reports and supervisor, you will identify your creative competencies and reactive tendencies. Results are charted against 200k leaders worldwide to give you a sense of how you perform relative to others. This “developmental can opener” will open you to new possibilities and help you map a plan for growth and evolution as a leader.
