A Deloitte study shows that effective leaders must sharpen a range of soft skills to succeed.
Deep Vs. Surface Strategies – Our coaches address Deep Structure strategies and behaviors that are out of your awareness, as well as Surface Structure strategies and behaviors that are more obvious. Surface Structure strategies include things such as: relationship skills, conflict management skills, interpersonal skills, presenting skills, etc. Our Coaching Process – Our coaching process is straightforward: our coaches begin by working with you or your HR / Talent Development professionals to identify performance opportunities. We review past assessment results; we also assess your results of our iWAM (Work, Attitude and Motivation) assessment. The iWAM helps you better understand how you are naturally motivated to achieve goals. We also interview you and multiple parties to identify your strengths and areas for leadership growth. Once goals are clarified, we develop a custom, leadership coaching game plan. Our goal is to give you the edge that you need to reach your full leadership potential.
