Leadership Coaching & Executive Coaches, Leadership Coaching & Executive Coaches, Leadership Coaching & Executive Coaches
In the Brandon Hall State of Leadership Report, 84% of organizations anticipate a shortfall in the number of qualified leaders over the next 5 years.
As organizations are increasingly focused on growing their leadership capabilities internally with a "build vs. buy" approach, the need for targeted leadership coaching is an even more critical component of your talent strategy.
We are certified coaches by John Mattone in the Intelligent Leadership Coaching Methodology.

THE INTELLIGENT LEADERSHIP COACHING PROCESS
UNDERSTANDING THE COACHING CONTEXT
At the start of each coaching engagement we meet with your selected person to discuss the goals of the coaching experience, the proposed roadmap and ignite their vision and passion about the coaching experience.
POWERFUL "INNER CORE" ASSESSMENT
The Mattone Leadership Enneagram Inventory (MLEI) self-assessment measures the strength, vibrancy and maturity of a leader’s character, self-concept, values, thinking patterns and emotional make-up (their “inner-core”). Success as a leader starts with the "inner-core".
POWERFUL "OUTER CORE" ASSESSMENT
The Strategic-Tactical Leadership Index-360™ (STLI-360) is a multi-rater assessment that results in an actionable report that allows participants to: compare their self-assessment to their internal stakeholder ratings and details their highest and lowest rated competencies and behaviors.
CUSTOMIZED DEVELOPMENT PLANNING
We then meet in person to debrief the reports and generate insights that are then turned into targeted action plans through the Assessment-Driven Individual Leadership Development Planning (ILDP) Tool.
PERSONALIZED COACHING & TARGETED CONTENT
Participants have the opportunity to reflect on the insights of their assessments and apply their development plan to real-life, every day challenges. We supplement their in-role development with personal coaching from our team and reading materials.
STAKEHOLDER & MENTOR ENGAGEMENT
Our continued coaching (live or virtual) in this phase encourages introspection and challenges mental models to unlock and unleash their leadership potential in alignment with their development plan. Participants interact with their key stakeholders and share their learnings with pre-selected mentors.
STAKEHOLDER FEEDBACK & COACHING DEBRIEFS
We survey key stakeholders to provide confidential feedback on the progress participants are making with the purpose of sustaining their improvement and providing them an opportunity to course correct. These check-ins also provide our clients with a tangible way to measure progress.
OUR INTELLIGENT LEADERSHIP ASSESSMENTS
The Mattone Leadership Enneagram Inventory (MLEI) self- assessment reveals both the “inner-core” strengths that need to be leveraged and the “inner-core” gaps and limiting factors that must be addressed by a leader to unleash their full-potential.
The Strategic-Tactical Leadership Index-360™ (STLI-360) is a multi-rater assessment that measures the "outer core" and results in an actionable detailed report that allows participants to:
- Compare their self-assessment ratings to their internal stakeholder ratings
- Detail their highest and lowest rated competencies and behaviors
- Highlight their most significant “blind spots” and “surprise strengths”
The Individual Leadership Development Planning (IDLP) tool help leaders build and implement a targeted leadership development plan based on their MLEI and STLI results.
Paul has great experience as both an HR generalist and as a talent/OD specialist.

Divisional Vice President (CMO)
Andrea and I worked together to open Mexico and Australia. The highest professional compliment that I can pay Andrea is when she would leave one of the markets – GM's would automatically ask her "when are you coming back." At HQ's she had the same impact – always being available as a strategic partner to the business.
