Large groups (20+) / Small groups (5-20) Leaders are not born with the skills they need to succeed. In fact, most leaders were high performers who were promoted because of competence versus a stellar ability to lead or manage. Fundamental skills for senior-level executives include:

  • Communications
  • Emotional intelligence
  • People management
  • Performance management
  • Goal setting
  • Accountability
  • Conflict resolution
  • Problem solving
  • Team-building
Bringing leaders together to hone these skills provides growth and development as well as an opportunity to build deeper relationships with their colleagues.

Individual Coaching (Onsite or Remote)

Everyone needs a support system – especially leaders – who are often isolated because of their status or position within the organization. One-on-one coaching allows participants a safe space to focus on current challenges and find new ways of approaching them. Gaining perspective, developing self-awareness, navigating interpersonal dynamics and honing the ability to respond versus react are a few of the many skills honed during sessions. What’s the investment worth? A study of executives at a Fortune 500 firm showed a 529% ROI on coaching – including

  • Improved productivity
  • Increased employee satisfaction
  • Better work quality
  • Higher level of work output.


Even strong communicators benefit from a skilled third party who keeps important sessions on track, guides discussions in a productive way and captures key learnings and next steps. Whether it’s a quarterly offsite, leadership summit or a client/team meeting, a trained facilitator allows you to focus on participation and results rather than the meeting itself.
