Coaching Helps

Coaching is unlocking people's potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.”

John Whitmore



The IL Executive Coaching

The IL Executive Coaching journey begins with a short meeting involving the executive (high-potential, manager, director, vice president, senior executive, and C-level) and “sponsoring” executive/team if necessary to discuss the goals of the coaching experience, provide context and background, and discuss the proposed “roadmap” and coaching schedule.

360 Degree Interviews

I supplement these assessments with 360-degree interviews involving key stakeholders and constituents (board members, other C-Level executives, direct reports) as well as survey a larger population of employees using my Strategic-Tactical Leadership Index 360-Survey or the organization’s sponsored 360-Survey.

Built In Shadowing

I almost always build-in one day of shadowing, in which I observe the executive in action—on calls, in meetings, etc.

The Balance of The Day

The balance of the day then shifts to the executive and I getting to know each other both “in the office” and “out” over lunch and/or dinner. My objective over the course of the day and following day, if necessary, is for us to build a foundation and bond of trust and rapport. Ultimately, I will assess the strength and vibrancy of both their “inner-core” and “outer-core” capabilities utilizing my general observations as well as a combination of a structured “in-depth interview” and objective assessments, including my own executive maturity assessment.

Identify General Observations

I will then identify from my general observations, assessments, interviews, and shadow days, the executive’s leadership strengths and development needs.

Fully Day Debrief

Typically, we schedule a full-day to debrief and discuss the themes and results of the assessments.

Introduce the Executive

I then transition to introducing the executive to their Core Purpose and creating their Core Purpose Statement (CPS)

Powerful Methods

One of the most powerful methods for cultivating a leaders passion for the vision “of the essence” of the person they must become (even “bigger” than what they want to become), is having them create and live by a core purpose statement, philosophy, or creed.
