We Are With you every step of the way
Our Business Coaches work with leaders to better understand their current experience and empower them to create a different way forward. We help leaders follow through with their goals by offering ongoing support, accountability, encouragement, and guidance. We do follow a simple, yet powerful coaching framework.
Our cohort coaches focus on helping successful people achieve positive, measurable, long-term change in leadership behaviors. Some of the steps in our unique coaching process are:
- The person receives 360 feedback from selected stakeholders
- After receiving 360 feedback, the person selects one or two important leadership behaviors to improve.
- Develop a follow-up process that provides an opportunity for ongoing dialogue on selected behaviors with selected stakeholders.
- Conduct progress surveys in the middle and at the end of the coaching engagement.
When the people being coached see the connection between changing behavior, achieving their goals, and living their values, they become very committed to doing what it takes to achieve lasting change.
