Executive and Leadership Development Coaching

What is the process?

A typical executive coaching engagement begins with self-assessment and 360-degree feedback to help the client see himself or herself clearly and identify his or her strengths and weaknesses. Based on these evaluations, the client sets goals and the coach works with them to develop leadership and management skills, take a more strategic and disciplined approach, address behaviors, improve skills, tackle problem areas, and grow professionally. The length of an engagement varies, but typical engagements run four to six months. Cost varies according to the length of engagement and the extent of the initial assessment.

When is the right time to get coaching?

Executive coaching is a powerful development tool for leaders who are at an inflection point in their career, whether transitioning into a new role, facing new challenges, or increasing their scope of responsibilities. While coaching can help clients address areas of weakness, it is not recommended as a remedial tool for under-performing individuals, but rather an investment in the growth and development of high-potential talent.

What is the return on investment?

Clients will begin to experience benefits almost immediately, as the awareness created by the feedback begins to change behavior. Together the coach and client develop success metrics and track progress, adjusting as needed. Coaching provides a framework for leadership and skills development that produces more adept and successful leadership, which allows leaders to elevate their skills and uplevel the talent on their teams to perform better and yield business results.
