Executive Coaching

Our executive coaching program begins with an executive assessment and any additional input as necessary such as interviews with board members and clients or an online multi-rater feedback report.

The program continues with a developmental feedback session and then three to twelve sessions. The deliverables for this coaching program include an action plan developed jointly by the consultant and the executive that includes accountability for meeting both behavioral objectives and long-term strategic business objectives.

Development Coaching

Development coaching is a very popular, short-term program for professional level employees, supervisors, or mid-level managers. The focus of this program is to help individuals better understand their style, strengths, and limitations and to identify ways of improving performance.

 This program is directed toward a limited set of high priority development objectives in addition to our key accountability features. An assessment and feedback precede the remaining three to five sessions, during which a development plan is formulated and implemented. The program may also include one or more meetings with the manager.

Management Coaching


Our management coaching program emphasizes leveraging a manager' s strengths and accountability for making progress towards specific behavioral objectives. This process begins with a management assessment. A developmental feedback session initiates the remaining three to eight coaching sessions. The deliverables include an action plan jointly developed by the consultant and the participating manager. Additionally, the program may include one or more meetings with the manager' s supervisor to discuss the action plan, review progress, and identify support areas.

Performance Coaching

Performance coaching is a short-term, highly focused program for employees at any level who have been identified as having specific issues that impede their continued success. This approach may begin with an assessment to gain an understanding and an appreciation of the person' s style, strengths, and limitations before addressing any pressing issues during the three to five coaching sessions. A development plan and meetings with the manager may be included.
