Personal Theory and Philosophy of Coaching:
1. Leaders set the tone for results in the organization.
Coaching an organization’s leaders is a high leverage investment: Fostering inspiration and exceptional business results begins with the leader. Leaders are the critical “connectors” bridging the passions, strengths, and capabilities of individual employees and teams to the organization’s goals and resulting performance.
2. Great leadership begins with great personal leadership.
Personal leadership or the ability to “lead” oneself is a precursor to becoming an exceptional leader. Coaching provides a unique lens for the leader to build self-knowledge, self-awareness, and most significantly, the ability to change. Instilling strong leadership habits paves the way to powerful change. “Sow an act, and you reap a habit; sow a habit, and you reap a character; sow a character, and you reap a destiny.” – George Dana Boardman
3. Coaching without results is merely conversation!
Coaching must be results/outcome based and aligned to business objectives. Measurement of coaching ROI includes qualitative and quantitative
