Coaching is aimed at improving your performance. The coach exposes blind spots and challenges you to step up to the next level of success. We act as a confidential thinking partner. Our clients have experienced better communication with team members, increased confidence, improved decision making and better time management.
Your coach serves as a sounding board and accountability partner for the goals you select. Our first session establishes the parameters for six coaching session. You identify your goals. In Session 1 of the series, you select three focus goals. In Sessions 2 to 6 we review the goals, discuss strategies actions and set new actions to be accomplished. In Session 6, we determine whether to continue our partnership.
EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT
Your success depends on how well you lead your team. Knowing each team member’s decision-making thinking results in improved relationships and effectiveness as you work with them on their tasks. Recognizing your blind spots as you connect with each team member increases the effectiveness of your communication. Gaining the knowledge of each team members blind spots opens new avenues of communication which accelerates your effectiveness.
Your team can gain an even higher level of success when each team member understands their blind spots and those of the team. We enable you to uncover the neurological differences stemming from what each one pays attention to when problem solving and making decisions. This knowledge has increased organizational capacity for success. Peer dynamics have improved when each discovers the origins of their team thinking and their personal blind spots. You as leader have an advantage of new insights on how to fast-track the effectiveness of your team.
LEADERSHIP COACHING FOR YOUR EXECUTIVES
With teams moving at breakneck speed, Executive Team members are shifting quickly and frequently need greater understanding of their peers to achieve an effective, efficient team process. Meetings can go awry easily when trust and understanding is low. Our work with teams begins with helping the team members understand the value differences, the team strengths and where there is group think that leads to blind spots.
Our Leadership Coaching has two focuses: helping the executive manage up and enabling them to coach and grow employees who have a range of skills and thinking competencies. In our series of six coaching sessions, we provide you with tools to address the challenges that you face. Whether is it managing up with a boss or a Board of Governance or developing the abilities of your staff to be independent in developing and deploying collaborative processes that work well in your organization.

BOARD GOVERNANCE WORKSHOPS
Board Members come with different talents, knowledge and skills. This workshop helps the Board to identify their strengths, differences and opportunities to work successfully together to achieve the organization’s vision. Our work with Board Members begins with helping each team member understand the value differences of the members, the team strengths and blind spots. Organizational leaders find that an outside voice facilitating the conversation and clarifying roles can enable the Governing Board team to work successfully together to make significant strategic decisions and establish policies.
The Framework for School Board Development outlines the vision, structure, accountability, advocacy and unity needed to promote excellence in Board governance so that student academic achievement goals are attained. We work with the Board to develop their shared vision, Board goals and accountability process that measures how well the vision is being accomplished. Our session focuses on the thinking dimensions of each team member using the science of axiology. Each team member receives their personal “Thinking Report.” We review the report with each one. Then we review with the team the thinking diversities as well as the management demands that accompany the team thinking. We provide the team leader counsel on how to effectively communicate with and motivate each direct report using their personal “Team Directory.”
