Executive Leadership Development

Our Executive Leadership Development Process begins with the foundational belief that effective leaders successfully establish vision and align the resources entrusted to them toward achieving that vision.

We begin with a battery of assessments that help determine how an executive can most effectively lead according to his or her natural talents and value system. We then develop the executive's core abilities through one-on-one coaching relationships (or group facilitation when requested).

Executives apply new skills and habits directly to their jobs while they work with us, and they are held accountable for progress. This assures sustainable, positive change.

After our initial coaching (typically 12 one-hour meetings), we continue with accountability coaching at intervals of 1, 2, 6, 10, and 16 months with goals and accountabilities between meetings - instilling leadership and goal achievement as a permanent and sustainable part of the executive's life.
