Central to the process of leadership coaching is developing greater awareness of self, others, and context. These three broad areas yield important information for more conscious self-management, higher functioning relationships, and responses that are consistent with systemic and organizational needs. Building awareness in all three areas is essential to effective leadership.
Through a process of assessment and feedback, executive coaching develops a more profound understanding of ourselves as leaders and how others perceive our leadership. While most people in organizations receive performance evaluations related to task-oriented results, it is less common to be given feedback that empowers personal and professional growth. Executive coaching provides a forum to explore and leverage strengths and align them with life and career aspirations.
Advanced Leaders Program (ALP) Groups
Meeting eight to ten times over the course of a year, these groups are designed especially for high-performing executives. CEO’s and other top leaders benefit from having a safe place to share difficult questions or challenges. ALP groups provide an effective forum to give and receive honest, direct feedback from executive peers that expands self-awareness. Participants develop supportive relationships that are frequently leveraged throughout a lifetime. Learn more…
