Our Approach

We'll begin our sessions with an assessment to help the individual members of your team:

  • Identify and build on their strengths.
  • Pinpoint their developmental needs.

Depending on the areas of concern, assessement tools can include 360 degree feedback and interaction styles inventories. Next, we will work with each individual to set objectives and formulate a plan to attain them. We will break it down in to achievable action steps with clearly defined milestones. All of this information will be provided in the form of a coaching summary.

Next, we will meet on a regular basis, implement the plan and track progress. Typically, executive coaching consists of a combination of one-on one-meetings, tele-conferences and, for overseas clients, on-line coaching.

Finally, we can re-administer the assessment tools and measure the results of our work together.
