Leadership is authentic influence that gets results
Positive and sustainable leadership growth cannot be separated from personal growth. Consequently, one fundamental aspect of our leadership coaching is to help our clients do the “inner work” of leadership. This involves building a deeper understanding of themselves, the sources of their drive, and their unique strengths. It also includes identifying what may be getting in the way of them leading from a place of authenticity and clarity.
The inner work is the foundation for the outer work of leadership – managing and influencing stakeholders, relationships, and results. We encourage our clients to be more versatile and to experiment with underutilized ways of leading that are reflective of their values, skills, and personalities. Concepts and tools from behavioral science, organizational effectiveness consulting, adult development theory, and humanistic / Gestalt psychology equally inform our approach. Over time we have seen what works and what does not – and have combined techniques and learning resources that proved valuable to our clients.
We believe that leadership is defined by the choices leaders make – and we empower leaders to make their choices consciously while navigating the balance between attending to their own needs and vision, the needs of their organization – and the needs of those they lead.
