Personalized, video recorded coaching in small groups.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Address your organization’s unique needs as your leaders increase their executive presence. Participants not only learn how to close the gap between their true leadership potential and where they’re operating now, they also learn how to apply those skills to specific situations.

COACHING ROI: Leaders know exactly what to do to up their game and they’re motivated to do it. Expect to see immediate results.

Before:
Aloof

RESULTS: Turning A Rival Around

“Raj” was a candidate to be General Manager of his division. Raj consistently came across as competent, yet arrogant and aloof. Because of his personality, he locked horns with a peer who was blocking him from the promotion he wanted.

After intense coaching to shift him from aloof to approachable, he used his new skills with his rival. One day, what would normally have been a tense 45 minute meeting became a relaxed, collaborative 2 hour session from which they emerged as allies.

RESULT: Raj got the job.

Based on a true story.
