Coaching for Leaders

The quality of your leadership is determined by the quality of relationships you have with those you lead.  

Half-Day Workshop, 6 Week Program

Coaching is the art of influence that underpins leadership in the 21st century. If you cannot coach, you cannot lead. As you are working with people on your team, you will find that every one of them is different. As their leader, your ability to coach will help bring each person’s individual skills, personalities and styles together so that you are all working as one unit. Learning to coach individuals to success is essential for every leader. The more successful the individual, the more successful the team and the organization.

Using the Maxwell Method of Coaching, a proven model for effectively coaching others to improve their results, I can facilitate the following programs for you and/or your team.

    Coaching for Transformational Leadership [Keynote Presentation]

    The quality of your leadership is determined by the quality of relationships you have with those you lead. During this presentation, I will lead you to and through an entirely different level of understanding of how to positively influence the people you lead to not only go way beyond their existing performance levels, but to go way beyond what they thought they were capable of.

    Regardless of whether your title is a manager or a leader, or you run your own business, you are in the business of growing, developing and improving people. That makes you a leader more than a manager, and we will discuss why this matters today more than ever.
