Leadership Coach

Organizations that achieve transformational change acknowledge and are proactive about the concept that culture trumps strategy in accomplishment of vision and goals. Culture must be empowering, engaging and visionary. The most effective strategy to support a healthy culture is by investing in leadership development at all levels of the business. As a premier leadership coach in Lynchburg Virginia, we follow processes and models that foster self-awareness, self-management and interpersonal skill development leading to establishment of this culture. The result is high performance for the leader and the teams that they lead.

Leaders transition from individually completing the work as a frontline contributor to executing the work through others as a leader. This is accomplished only when the leader has established a culture of trust, autonomy, innovation, and accountability within their teams.

Leadership development and coaching has proven to be one of the most effective practices to take your leaders to this next level in a meaningful and sustained way resulting in skill building that has lasting and marked impact.

Many leaders have risen to their position by proving their worth through “what” they have accomplished in their career. Our leadership coaching services focus on “how” success is achieved. Focusing on the health of the organizational culture for the employees through interpersonal savvy and emotional intelligence of leadership yields a high-performance environment where teams excel.

In an age of unprecedented change and growth in business, leaders are often promoted into positions without adequate support or training. The transition into new roles and expanded scope requires new knowledge to face new challenges and prepare to take on additional responsibilities.

What does a Leadership Coach Do:

Our integrated model provides both education into proven models and processes to build leadership skill and to change behavior along with  coaching to reinforce and reaffirm skills and assure transition of insight to application.

Most organizations tend to miss the mark by providing corporate leadership development training that is not coupled with processes to assure transference of insight into actual application and behavioral change. This is where the investment has the highest payoff!  Studies show that this is best accomplished when the training is supported by coaching, either individually or by teams, to bring the learning to real time use. The practiced skills alter leadership style and behavior for sustained improvement.
