Our individual and team coaching is based on structured processes that serves as the foundation of our work with you. The individual coaching process was published in several books on Innovative Leadership co-authored by the Innovative Leadership Institute founder, Maureen Metcalf. All coaching starts with you clarifying your vision of what success looks like when we are done. We then assess your current and future states so we can identify the gap that coaching will close. The Assessment process generally involves a combination of tools to get the clearest possible picture and focus our work on highest impact areas. One of the key values of these assessments is to help you build individual and organization self awareness. Based on your results and a comprehensive gap analysis, we will create a development/action plan.
Our coaches have strong leadership backgrounds – they have walked in your shoes and succeeded! Our coaching often focuses on helping leaders build their leadership skills in service of stepping into a new role or leading a transformation in their organization. They build the leadership required to accomplish their organizational goals. The Institute has a strong focus on combining the rigor of well researched processes and proven organizational success with practical approaches and solutions into the coaching process.
We complement the structure with our own expertise and stories of how others have overcome similar challenges through the 175+ hours of interviews with successful executives, academics and thought leaders. This interview library allows you to learn from top leaders across a range of fields about their challenges and how they overcame them as well as listen to top authors about their latest publications focused on several facets of organizational leadership. This library is based on interviews Maureen Metcalf conducted for Voice America. The combination of coaching and skill building accelerates your ability to accomplish your coaching goals.
In addition to certified coaches, we also have content coaches available to help you work on specific topics that may require deep expertise.
