in your leadership (and life!) again
Let’s face it.
when you’re burned out, disengaged, and
disillusioned, you can’t do your best work,
let alone be an effective leader.
Who you are, what you were born with, where you’ve worked, and the experiences you’ve had play a big role in what kind of leader you are... for good and for bad.
However, leadership can be learned and developed over time. Sure, there are plenty of leadership development “programs,” or training classes, but often those things try to turn you into a particular kind of leader, ignoring your core strengths, areas to develop, and ultimate goals.
The power of my leadership coaching is determining what kind of leader you want to be and mapping out how we're going to get you there.
Executive leadership coaching with me is a journey of self-discovery and focused learning, designed to grow you as a leader and as a person.
How This Works:
One-on-one coaching with me is a 6-month, 3-phased process:
Discovery, Development, and Deciding What’s Next.
Let’s explore where you are currently with your career, what’s going well... and what’s not. We start by interviewing your key stakeholders (boss, direct reports, peers, and others as needed), creating a confidential and anonymous report for the two of us to debrief. Here, we discover your primary development area(s), which may be as simple as 2-3 bullet points describing your targeted areas for leadership growth, or it could be a more sophisticated individual development plan, depending on your own preferences and the expectations of your organization.
With your development areas as our guide, we meet for coaching sessions roughly every 2 weeks, sometimes weekly, and never less than once per month. Our focused (sometimes intense!) dialogue can be on any topic you are currently dealing with, ideally related to one of your development areas, but not always. This is where the magic happens, where we dig into the topics most relevant to you, deepening your own insight into yourself, your patterns, your strengths, and your weaknesses. We’ll build on your insight, either putting into practice something that you’ve learned, by taking action, or actively reflecting on something specific to the coaching session.
3. Deciding What’s Next
We create our own assessment of how you’ve grown and made progress against your development areas. We engage your key stakeholders again at this point, either informally, or through a survey, to see how their perceptions of you have changed. Based on those inputs, we decide whether to complete the coaching engagement or extend it to further enhance your transformation as the leader you long to be.
