The most effective way to develop your leadership and improve business results is with personal coaching!  Using a Comprehensive Assessment, clients are carefully assessed using current information and a formal interview or shadowing process.  If current data is not available, other assessment tools can be used to assure a thorough understanding of perceptions people have of the individual or team performance.  Then a Feedback & Action Planning phase is developed.  Working with individuals and teams to identify and commit to the important essential behaviors to be refined, developed, and integrated.  A plan of action is agreed upon.  Next, Active Learning where the coach regularly interacts with the executive or team, suggesting ways to reinforce commitment and sustain change and growth.  Which leads to the final phase of Validating & Sustaining Success.  As long as value is added, the coaching then moves into working with the client to ensure they are committed to the plan and that actions are indeed taking place and having a positive impact.  Executive coaching typically requires a commitment of no less than six months.
