“There really is not a single top athlete who does not have a coach. CEOs should not be insecure about this issue, and instead see coaching as a tool for improving their already high performance.” HBR 8/13
In their words:
“As leaders focus on their individual development, a critically developed framework is necessary for deep insights. While the MAP assessment provides an excellent mechanism, an experienced coach is necessary to understand the nuances and create an adaptable action plan. Maureen Metcalf is spectacular at translating the rich model into actionable steps for your development as well as helping you adapt to individuals at other developmental levels. She also has the uncanny ability to intuitively assess an individual’s developmental level, and provide techniques to improve interactions and outcomes.” – Senior Executive – Large US University
“A few years ago I attended a workshop designed to improve the mentoring skills of physicians and scientists working within the National Institutes of Health extramural funding system. I was exposed to a workshop was led by Maureen Metcalf. As a result, I took the MAP assessment. The feedback was a very stimulating and profitable because it helped me understand better my own leadership and mentorship style. The assessment information and coaching gave me great insight into myself and how I could interact with others taking into account their levels of maturity. This knowledge has proven useful on an ongoing basis in all of my professional relationships because it gave me insights into how to recognize maturity levels and quickly adjust my interaction to one that will work best for others. I return to those lessons often as I work to continually improve the effectiveness of my leadership.” Department Chair – University College of Medicine

Many other leaders work independently with coaches to gain support to accomplish their goals. We would like to give you some information about our coaching process and also some of the results our clients report.
The following image reflects the basic coaching process. While the process appears linear, there are several areas that circle back; as the leader and coach learn, they refine their earlier thinking.
“You need coaches who are very smart, intuitive about business and interpersonal dynamics, neutral in their assessment (i.e., not captured by their client), and can tailor the training to the individual needs (not a canned approach).” HBR 8/13
