Executive Coaching

There is nothing remotely trivial about the impact you have on the people and outcomes under your watch.

Executive Coaching is for leaders at the senior director level and above who are responsible for significant initiatives within their organizations. They are charged with accomplishing those results with and through others who are positioned in a variety of functions, groups, and in some cases, other organizations, locally and/or globally.

Leaders who engage in Executive Coaching are seeking to optimize their performance in six pivotal aspects of leadership that those in senior positions rarely get the opportunity to explore and discuss. Leaders choose us because of our commitment to the results they are seeking in these six areas:

  • Leadership Style and Impact
  • Power and Influence
  • Intentional Communication
  • Talent and Performance Management
  • Team Development
  • The Art of Integrating Work and Life

We take an evidence-based approach to every coaching engagement, assessing each leader using integrative and cross-theory elements that pull from the various disciplines of leadership theory, including:

  • best practices of outstanding leaders
  • adult learning and development models
  • systems theory
  • principles of humanistic, behavior-based, and cognitive psychology as they apply to coaching

Using a goal-focused approach, we then design a Master Leadership Plan together with the leader.

Our tools include the world’s best psychometric personality and leadership assessments such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Step II instrument and the FIRO Business Leadership instrument. We evaluate each engagement and choose from among best-in-class 360 leadership assessments including Lominger Leadership Architect® Suite from Korn/Ferry, Strategic Directions® from Management Research Group, and Emotional and Social Intelligence inventories from the Hay Group.

Xpress Coaching for Leaders at Any Level

We also offer leadership coaching for individuals at any level who have a short-term, focused need. Our Xpress Coaching is for tough leadership issues that require a trusted, objective sounding board for thinking through the best approach for the situation. Engagements range from the on-demand emergency coaching session, to one or two scheduled phone calls, to six sessions over 30 to 60 days.

With Xpress Coaching, we can walk you through the design of a crack influence plan, help you strategize a spot-on approach to a sensitive political issue, give you in-the-moment tools for dealing with tough team dynamics, and help you through the rough and tumble of the occasional thorny peer, manager, or employee communication situation.

No one relishes the thought of being unprepared for a potentially difficult situation. That’s why a leadership coach can be there for you for those times when a short consultation is all that you need to get yourself on the right track.
