Executive & Leadership Coaching

Executive & Leadership Coaching

Highly motivated and engaged employees are the backbone of a successful organization. High levels of engagement and motivation begin with the ability of leaders at all levels to cast a compelling vision and transform the culture into an exceptional place to work. Organizations known as great places to work are able to not only attract the best and brightest, but are able to retain them. Gallup research has shown that the single biggest factor in an organization’s success is the quality of its managers.

Often when individuals are promoted to a leadership or executive role they find themselves needing and wanting more in-depth professional and/or personal development. The skill set and personal attributes needed to impact organizational outcomes shift once one becomes a leader. Through the coaching process, leaders are able to partner with their coach in a provocative and innovative process that inspires them to maximize their full potential, both personally and professionally. As the leader’s potential is realized, the organization benefits in a variety of ways including team creativity, alignment, capacity, and productivity.

Executive & Leadership Coaching FAQs

How can coaching positively impact my organization’s bottom line?

Organizations that invest in their leaders often report seeing many bottom line benefits including improved team engagement and productivity that can result in increased revenue, greater retention of critical talent, stronger company culture and more.

Can coaching be a useful tool in our succession planning?

Yes! As organizations identify employees with high potential, when leadership coaching is a part of a development plan it can help prepare them to take on additional responsibilities and build interpersonal and leadership skills that are important for success. According to Gallup, bringing teams together and making great decisions are critical traits for effective leaders.

Is coaching simply about making the individual feel better about themselves?

On the contrary. Coaching helps the individual focus on areas most in need of development for them to best impact the organization. These topics can include how the individual communicates and the level of effectiveness achieved. Focus is sometimes on the relationships that the individual needs to nurture to increase cooperation and collaboration within the organization. Perhaps the individual needs support in developing conflict management skills in order to build a culture of trust on their team. All of these issues ultimately impact how well the team functions, which impacts the overall success of the organization.

I attended the harassment prevention workshop put on by Employers Council, and I wanted to share my praise for the presenter. I was skeptical about whether I would learn anything I didn't already know, but she presented the information in thought-provoking and nuanced ways. She answered questions well and had us do an activity that enlivened the presentation. As an academic, I particularly appreciated the way that she was able to address the issues intellectually and not simply give us an "information dump." Anyway, I was impressed with what I expected to be a boring presentation. - Professor, Regis University

Our handbook needed to be updated. We had done minor revisions over the years, but more policies than we needed crept into the handbook over time. I wanted to keep what was important and get rid of the rest. I sent my handbook to Employers Council and staff went through all of the policies to first let me know what could be eliminated, and what needed to change in order to bring it up to date. The best thing was that this is part of my full membership dues, so there was no charge for this. I send in my handbook every one or two years for a tune up, so it reflects current laws and stays streamlined.

As I faced some difficult employee problems over the years, I knew that I could reach out to Employers Council and get some good solid advice in how to handle a situation. In the 20 years if have been working in HR I don’t believe I was ever given bad advice. I may not have always agreed with what the counsel was, but I never put myself or the company in a compromising position by following your advice and recommendations.

Joe Maylin, Human Resources Manager - Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co.

Being able to reach out to someone on the Member Experience Team when something comes up and we're just not sure how to handle it is amazing. We have help just a phone call or an email away, and everyone that we have worked with has been so responsive, understanding, and helpful.
