Coaching & Leadership Development
Investing in leaders is perhaps one of the most essential investments for companies today. With a shrinking workforce and fewer opportunities to groom new leaders over a long period of time, companies need to invest in a sustainable way to build leadership capability.

Coaching & Leadership Development FAQs
Is executive coaching the same as mentorship?
Executive coaching is not the same as mentorship. We encourage all professionals and leaders to seek out mentors and to mentor others. But executive coaching is extremely behavioral focused and results oriented. To level-up your leadership skills, we explore the assumptions and beliefs behind a leader's choices.
Leveraging The Leadership Circle 360 assessment, we partner with executives to shift their leadership from a reactive, problem-solving space to a creative, outcome-focused space. The critical work in building leadership competency involves challenging your assumptions and creating a new definition of how you add value.
What does a leadership development program include?
We believe that coaching should not just be for the elite, and we have developed proven and affordable programs that scale from the executive suite to the front line.
Our customized programs combine assessments with individual and team coaching to create repeatable and scalable leadership development models.
Strong leadership is the foundation needed for an organization to achieve scalable growth. Create consistent, scalable programming to embed leadership mentality and behaviors across your organization.
How can I change our organization's leadership culture?
The effectiveness of the leadership system in an organization determines its performance, especially in volatile and uncertain business environments. Now there is an assessment that measures the health of your leadership system—the culture of leadership in your organization. The Leadership Culture Survey from The Leadership Circle Group is the most comprehensive assessment available on the overall health and effectiveness of the leadership in your organization.
The Leadership Culture Survey provides a powerful “MRI” of your leadership culture. Used for your entire organization or just a leadership team, the Leadership Culture Survey reveals valuable data, tells you how your people view their current leadership culture, and compares that reality to the optimal culture they desire. The gap between the current culture and desired culture instantly reveals key opportunities for leadership development.
How do I develop and retain high-potential employees?
We define a high potential employee as someone who exhibits great levels of influence, respect from their peers, and high-quality results without formally being placed in a leadership position. Most organizations put some formal effort into identifying high potential employees—those top-performing individuals with emerging leadership qualities.
Are you being proactive about the development of your high potential employees? We help clients attract, retain and develop high potential employees to ensure a pipeline of top talent stays within the organization. This includes identifying the characteristics of a high potential employee for your organization and implementing programs that retain those employees for as long as possible.
Starting with a baseline assessment to increase leadership awareness, we enrich the career development of high potential employees by building a foundation of values and strengths, establishing mentors, designing an integrated business impact plan, and promoting cross-functional collaboration.
Coaching & Leadership Development Services
Executive coaching focuses on elevating leadership skills by challenging the assumptions that drive a leader's beliefs and actions. Executive coaching differs from mentorship and advisory services. Unlike those services which focus on providing external advice, executive coaching pulls insights from within the leader. The result is a shift in operating from a reactive space to a creative space.
Most leaders have heard of forming, storming, norming, and performing. But not as many can proactively lead their teams through these development stages. Proactive, thoughtful leadership produces a better performing team in the end. Team coaching helps teams unite around common vision, goals, and rules of engagement to extract full potential.
First Time Leaders
First-time leadership can be a minefield of blind spots as leaders understand their level of impact in an entirely new way. The key to first-time leadership is a mindset shift in how the individual measures their success. It's no longer about what they do themselves, but what they do through others. Our coaches have worked with hundreds of first-time leaders and can guide them through this critical career transition. These leaders have a ripple impact on the teams they lead, and we help make sure this impact is positive.
