Custom Coaching Game PlansBenchmark delivers custom leadership development game plans. Our coaching process is straightforward. First, we work with your organization's HR or Talent Development advisors to identify performance opportunities. We also review past assessment results if those are available. We highly recommend the iWAM assessment that reveals how leaders are naturally motivated to achieve work goals. Then, we interview select people to identify strengths as well as areas for leadership growth. Once the coaching goals are clarified, we deliver a custom leadership coaching game plan. Our goal is to help leaders reach their full leadership potential. RELATED ARTICLES:

We have called on Benchmark many times and their leadership assessment is a highly valuable development tool. I laughed when Benchmark’s coaches first explained my iWAM results, because it rang so true for me! I now understand how I am naturally motivated – and it reminds me that not everyone is like me. As a leader, it helps me better understand what motivates others and helps me make better choices, so I can deliver better results! Benchmark helped me understand strengths that can be overused and areas of weakness that are real opportunities.
