The next level.
There’s a reason successful business people and world class athletes have coaches. Quite simply, coaching delivers. In a recent survey, it was demonstrated that coaching delivered an ROI of 545%! Coaching is about results.
More and more, organizations across the U.S. are hiring coaches as a perk for their top performers. The investment in coaching returns higher profits and a competitive edge for the company. That's what companies reported, when asked about corporate coaching in a survey of over 4000 organizations conducted by the ICF and Linkage, Inc.
What is Coaching anyway?
The International Coaching Federation℠ (ICF) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. ”Ultimately, coaches help people improve their performance. (See below for Types of coaching)
A professionally trained coach serves as a sounding board, strategic partner, confidante, and incubator for your hopes, dreams and aspirations. Effective business coaching enhances your ability to focus on making those choices needed to achieve your desired outcomes. It accelerates the process and increases the probability of success. With a coach as your committed partner, you receive positive support to improve your perspective, allowing you to focus attention and resources appropriately, and to perform at consistently optimal levels.
Once used to bolster troubled staffers, coaching is now standard leadership development for executives and talented up-and-comers at IBM, Motorola, J.P. Morgan, Chase and Hewlett Packard.

It can be lonely at the top. There aren’t many people an executive can turn to for advice and support. It’s tough for a leader to find an objective sounding board for new ideas—someone, with no personal agenda, to provide a second opinion. An executive coach is that someone.
Highly successful executives invest in Executive Coaching to improve leadership and management effectiveness. Coaching helps leaders recognize and play more fully to their strengths and talents. Coaches provide a fresh perspective to help professionals rise to the next level. Executive Coaching is a smart investment in the present and future of executives and the teams they lead.

Coaching focuses on future possibilities, not past mistakes.
--- John Whitmore,
Often smart and talented exexcutives have blind spots or weaknesses in a specific area of performance that neither counseling nor training have effectively resolved. The leader who wants to break through this barrier to success is the perfect candidate for Performance Coaching.

How Can New Leaders Deliver Faster Results?
One of the hallmarks of organizational success is the ability of a new or recently promoted employee to successfully transition into a new or expanded leadership role. The pressure to perform, and perform quickly, often undermines their ability to do just that.
Starting a new job is exciting, but also stressful. Transitional Coaching accelerates a leader’s ability to make a significant contribution, while reducing the stress of being in a new position. It is an essential component of any successful succession planning or onboarding program.
Employee satisfaction is also vital to success in a new role. Another goal of Transitional Coaching is to make sure the new leader feels valued and prepared for what lies ahead. Transitional Coaching focuses on helping them thrive, not just survive.
Transitional Coaching helps new executives/managers/leaders:
Increase the speed of integration
Significantly reduce their learning curve
Rapidly build productive relationships
Address critical success factors early
Transitional Coaching for newly-promoted leaders is also great for onboarding! Complete our online form for more information.

Where do you go for guidance on important issues? Where can you turn when you want some confidential advice about an idea or an opportunity? Sometimes the best place to turn is to other leaders like you.
Leaders tell us they need a regular forum where they can speak candidly about the challenges they face, and hear how others have resolved similar issues. They’re not looking for a dinner meeting or a conference, but a working group sharing proven insights and practical solutions. Group coachingis a facilitated process, led by a skilled coach-consultant. Groups are created to maximize the combined energy, experience and wisdom of the group. There are two distinct types of groups that benefit significantly from group coaching:
Success Networks: Peers within similar professions from different companies
The Leadership Trust: Peers or Teams within the same company
Group Coaching is one of the most time saving and cost effective methods for continuous professional development. In a facilitated, supportive environment, group members receive creative input, clarity, direction and personal attention. Participants brainstorm new possibilities, give one another feedback, and set up accountability structures that keep them focused and on track. Group coaching works for companies, organizations, and related professionals. Coaching takes place via teleconference and is scheduled at regular intervals based on the needs of the group. Group coaching makes good sense in today’s economic climate because it’s scalable, affordable, and effective. Don’t give up meeting, just give up travel. It’s proven and powerful. People inspiring people. Guaranteed.
Begin to leverage the unique benefits of group coaching to take your life to a significantly higher level of personal and professional satisfaction. Contact us now.
