There’s coaching, and
there’s Good Leadership Coaching.
Good Leadership Coaching is exponentially more powerful than simply finding a coach. It’s a well-orchestrated system of data-driven tools and techniques, listening, and step up challenges. Our work includes coaching individuals, peer groups, and teams. We will provide the encouragement you need to become the leader you want to be, with the results you want to see. We don’t do “fix-it” work. We help good leaders create great results.
Our coaching client mix today includes:
“Several of my past organizations offered coaching as I moved to new levels in my career. I’ve never experienced anything as powerful as the Good Leadership Coaching approach. Their tools are great. They are insightful, direct, flexible, and best of all, 100% focused on my success in the organization. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.”
– Dan McGinty, CEO
Who is coaching you?
International coaching industry research reveals:
55% of executives today are disappointed with the general leadership development investments they make in growing leaders.
More than 90% say they would recommend coaching to others.
The recipients of individual executive coaching identify “individual coaching” as the fastest, most consistent, most tangible return on investment. So, what are you waiting for…who is coaching you?
Not all coaches are created equal.
At Good Leadership Enterprises, you have choices – coaches with corporate, private, and small business experience. For profit and non-profit – Midwest, East and West Coast. And more than half of the coaches have international experience.
It’s less about whether your coach has “walked in your shoes before,” and more about choosing a good coach. CEOs, business owners, executives, and emerging leaders expect three things from their coach:
Can understand how my business works
Knows how to be straightforward, honest, and can motivate powerful people like me
Will help me get people working together, better
“Good Leadership Coaching was just what I needed to learn to be the CEO I wanted to be. I’m finding my voice and leveraging my team in new ways. Today, I believe we are on the path to gold medal results. It really works.”
– Megan Remark, CEO
The Aspirational Approach.
No one likes to be labeled as a “problem” or someone who needs to be rescued. That’s why we don’t believe in the Scientific Method of coaching…because it begins with an assessment to find the problem. That’s not how adults grow.
Adults only grow and change if they want to! Research proves the only way to overcome our human proclivity for negativity and hard-to-break habits is a compelling goal. In other words, we need vivid aspirations to embrace and accept coaching. Aspirational thinking unlocks “What’s possible?” and creates the motivational pull to try new things and see new pathways to better results.
The Good Leader Growth Curve is our proprietary development philosophy.
Why is coaching increasingly popular?
Organizations today are lean and move too fast to meet the specific needs of individual leaders. Good Leadership Coaching works because the learning is tailored to the individual, the coach can move at the speed of the business, and the leader builds a support system to ensure the learning sticks. Coaching helps both the client and the organization focus on what’s most important for mutual success.
Here are the most common reasons leaders hire a coach:
The speed of change is making me and my team dizzy
Our prioritization is blurry, I need help creating focus and clarity
I’m in a big stretch assignment and I don’t want to flame out
My team isn’t clicking, I need a new approach
Influencing at my level is really difficult, I need help
I’m bored, wondering what’s next for me – is it here or somewhere else?
We are seriously worried about burnout
Three myths about coaching:
Coaching is soft and doesn’t create an ROI.
The most powerful measure of coaching effectiveness is the bottom line impact on the business. Higher employee engagement reduces the cost of employment. Faster decision-making increases efficiency. A stronger team produces faster growth and higher margins.
be a coach.
While many people call themselves “coaches,” it’s important to find a coach affiliated with a firm who has coaching tools. And, someone who understands business, how adults grow, and how organizations work in teams.
A big part of coaching is a safe place to think out loud, and a bottomless well of encouragement. That’s why some clients retain their coach for 3-5 years. Why not? If it’s working, it’s worth continuing.
What can I expect from my coaching?
Coaching without structure and a public process is therapy. We don’t do therapy. You can expect your Good Leadership Coaching to include the use of best-in-class coaching tools, personality inventories, and surveys to accentuate the personal expertise of your coach.
You’ll start with Personal Visioning exercises to spark your aspirations. And along the way, we’ll interview the people important to your success, engage your team, and create step up challenges to ensure progress.
Even CEOs need help with accountability. That’s why you will need to identify a sponsor for your coaching who will participate in at least one Alignment Meeting – it’s a facilitated discussion where you and your sponsor will calibrate your vision and goals with the commitments to ensure success.
