What is Coaching?
Coaching is the most highly individualized form of leadership development available. Coaching is a process in which a qualified coach works one-on-one with a leader—the “coachee.” The coachee and the coach collaborate to understand the developmental task, challenge current constraints, explore new possibilities and ensure accountability and support for reaching goals and sustaining development.
Leaders achieve high performance and directly impact business results with personalized, executive leadership coaching for one-on-one development.
Individuals work one-on-one with an an executive coach to become more confident and effective in their management of workplace conflict.

The specific goals that lead executives or their organizational sponsors to initiate coaching include improving interpersonal skills, managing stress, driving change, preparing for professional advancement and preventing derailment.

A Few Words from Our Clients
“Working with my coach was instrumental in helping me navigate a variety of unique career challenges that took place during a time of unprecedented business and economic disruptions. Thanks to her, I was able to develop a vision of what success looks like, increase my confidence, and become a better leader. Executive coaching wasn’t something I realized I needed until I experienced the transformation it helped to build.”
Director Operations Training and Development, Power Design
“My coach provided guidance in translating the information and tools from the workshop into an individual action plan. I was determined to walk out of the program with a well defined plan that addressed business planning, process, and employee relations. I have been tremendously successful in accomplishing 13 of the 15 action items over the course of a year. The result is a better work environment and increased sales performance. My coach was critical to my success as an effective manager, giving me not only the tools but the guidance and continual support to implement my plan.”
Head of Domestic Home Entertainment, Dreamworks
“I’m a very private person, and the concept of working with a coach made me a little skeptical. After working with her for 7 years, I can honestly say I couldn’t have been more wrong. My coach knows me, but more importantly, has taken the time to understand how my family life impacts my work life, and vice versa. The time that we spend together is one of the more useful things that I do to help me continue to be a balanced, productive manager and teammate.”
