Leadership Effectiveness

Develop your full potential as a “people leader”. Coaching can help improve your personal effectiveness in leading others and achieve exceptional results for your organization.

Why work with a coach?

Is there a gap between where you are now and where you want to be? Are you ready and willing to take action to achieve the results you want? Are you willing to consider working with a coach to help you realize your full potential? If you answered “yes” to all three questions, coaching can be an effective personal development strategy. A coach can be a catalyst for personal change by:

  • Acting as an insightful, confidential thought partner.

  • Providing objective feedback in a non-judgmental manner.

  • Holding you accountable for the achievement of your goals.

When does leadership effectiveness coaching make sense?

Coaching can be applied to a range of situations, including:

  • Assessing your current strengths and development opportunities as a leader.

  • Transitioning to a new role with increased responsibility and span of control.

  • Addressing specific business and/or team challenges.

What are the benefits?

Effective coaching enables performance improvements that are observable, measurable and significant.

For You

  • Improves your ability to achieve results by helping you understand and effectively apply your strengths

  • Increases your emotional intelligence by identifying and supporting you to address gaps/blind spots in your ability to manage challenging relationships

For Your Organization

  • Improves organizational decision making and performance

  • Increases retention rate

  • Supports succession planning

How does it work?

  • We begin with a no obligation telephone conversation to understand your needs, determine if leadership effectiveness coaching makes sense and assess the mutual fit between client and coach.

  • If the conditions for a successful coaching relationship exist, the next step would be to have an in-depth coaching session to:

  • Assess your current situation to understand the challenges and/or opportunities you are facing.

  • Define the focus of the coaching and begin building an action plan.

  • Establish specific desired outcomes from both organizational and individual perspectives.

  • Agree on the frequency and duration of the coaching sessions and the length of the coaching engagement.

  • Ongoing coaching sessions would support you to execute your plan. The frequency and duration of the coaching sessions varies, depending on your needs and preferences. We recommend a minimum of two hours of coaching per month.

  • Coaching is typically done virtually, using telephone calls and interactive tools such as Go-To-Meeting to facilitate the real-time sharing of information.

  • Between coaching sessions, we ask you to commit to specific actions that will enable the achievement of your plan.

  • At some point in the coaching relationship, we may recommend the use of an assessment tool to provide deeper insights and identify opportunities to increase your personal effectiveness. We are certified in the use of a variety of tools to support personal development, including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and EQ in Action, an emotional intelligence assessment.

  • Throughout the coaching process, you and your coach will assess the value received from the coaching. You should expect to make a commitment of six months to build a solid relationship and realize the results you are seeking.
