Coaching

We offer coaching services to executives, managers, teams and individual contributors. We see coaching as a means of enhancing the overall performance of the organization as well as the performance of individuals. As coaches we are thinking partners and guides to navigating uncertainty and solving complex problems. Coaching is an important tool for establishing organizational cultures of high performance that excel at innovation, vision, and execution. Our coaching practice operates from these principals:

  • Effective coaching requires a trusting partnership between the coach and coachee, and the coachee's sponsor when there is one
  • Successful coaching requires clear coaching goals
  • Every person lives and works in relationship with other people, and it is the nature and quality of these relationships that largely determine one's effectiveness. Coaching goals are most often best defined in terms of these relationships and the opportunities to make them more effective.
  • Self awareness is a critical capability for building effective relationships

Every coaching engagement is unique, and we tailor our approach to fit the particular personality and needs of the coachee and their organization. We utilize a variety of tools, including:

  • 360 assessments
  • Emotional Intelligence assessments
  • Myers-Briggs or a variant thereof
  • One on one coaching sessions
  • Coaching two or more people working through interpersonal challenges
  • Team coaching
  • Self awareness practices designed to enhance the coachee's awareness of their physical, emotional and intellectual states, and how those states influences their thinking and behavior
  • Formal communication skills to help the coachee enhance their effectiveness in conversations with others
  • Cycle of Leadership and Leadership Culture models
