What We Do
The CEO is peerless and it can be isolating at times even though you need a safe place to vent, bounce around ideas, strategize organizational changes, and work through issues. The unique coaching relationship between us is based on a set of shared ethics and clear operating principles: honesty, integrity and intention. Choosing to be coached requires that you come to the relationship pre-motivated, committed to making time for the work a priority, and ready to roll up your sleeves. Coaching helps you see what’s possible, think strategically and implement actions to leap the gap to who you want to become.
Leaders aren’t born, they’re developed. Organizations who understand the value of leadership invest in personal development. Employees being led can tell whether their employer invests in leaders by the effectiveness of decision making, direction setting, role-modeling, and employee engagement, encouragement and challenge. Understand – great leadership development is not a program, it is a strategy and culture YOU create.
We help you set goals and expectations for yourself and others including key capabilities, competencies, and experiences your company needs at the helm. Those defined goals drive selection, rewards, and the strategic framework for ongoing leadership development so the best of you becomes the heart beat in your organization.
The work begins as you define what you want your leadership culture to be, review the talent needs of your organization and determine how you find, encourage, and promote successful leaders, then focus on developing those individuals.
The Leader’s Dashboard is a deceptively simple single page tool. It takes a leader from the highest-level questions about mission, vision, and values, to strategic questions about core talents and priorities, tactical questions about measuring performance. Far from generic, the individual questions about key relationships and opportunities for professional development results in personal insights from guided reflection and dialogue that leaders can keep front and center to stay focused on the intelligent actions that will produce the outcomes they seek.
