Leadership Assessment & Executive Coaching
Leadership Development Consulting
Today’s business executives find themselves amidst unprecedented organizational complexity and change, coupled with increasingly high expectations. Leadership and executive coaching consists of a one-on-one process designed for individuals in leadership positions that results in higher levels of effectiveness and success in their roles. The process involves thorough, in-depth assessment, planning for enhanced performance around key success factors, and on-going coaching to develop and strengthen effective leadership practices that leverage the individual’s natural talents.
Strategically employed, executive coaching builds current and future leadership capability, by investing in the development and/or effectiveness of:
Senior leaders with significant accountability for business objectives, particularly in times of organizational transition or high-growth
High potential leaders (including those who may be targeted in succession management programs)
Leaders who are new to their role or new to the organization
Leaders who aspire to higher levels of achievement and success
New or emerging leaders
Having sufficient talent to fill key leadership roles is an imperative for successful and growing organizations. Therefore developing current and future leaders is a key priority, and can yield huge dividends when effective systems and processes are put in place. The Leading Edge provides expert assistance in designing and developing strategies for:
Accelerated development of an organization’s top talent, in order to build the leadership pipeline and prepare leaders for critical roles for the future, often in conjunction with succession management programs
Developing leaders across the organization, from emerging leaders to experienced executives, with customized models that fit with the organization’s culture and business objectives
Developing robust and fully individualized leadership development processes for leaders at any level of the organization
Often, a specific group of individuals within an organization can benefit from coaching. Perhaps there is a need for cohesiveness among the organization’s leaders, or a desire to build more effective and motivated teams. Team coaching can help unite a leadership team, a work group, or people across functions and divisions.
Through a process that often involves a combination of assessment, custom-designed facilitated team sessions and working with individual team members, work groups and teams become transformed into cohesive units that utilize each member's natural talents in pursuit of common goals.
Circumstances such as a major life transition, a sense of dissatisfaction or the desire for higher levels of achievement can lead a person to seek out this process to help them identify and create a work life that is rooted in their sense of purpose, their values, and the things that bring them deep satisfaction. Personal career coaching helps individuals realize their career goals and aspirations, through a thorough assessment process, definition of clear objectives, and implementation of an effective strategy for attaining them. Career coaching is a highly customized and personal process, focused on meeting the unique needs of the individual.
