COACHING

ENGAGEment Leaders

A Great Organization is Built from the Top

Having a vision for a flourishing organization is just the beginning. 

 

Leaders have to be all in.  Beyond heads nodding in agreement with a vision, great cultures depend upon the skillfulness and alignment of the actions of leaders.

 

Even good leaders don't always know how they impact others.  And they don't always realize that how they interact with others cascades throughout the organization, for better or not. Great ones do, and they work at optimizing their impact relentlessly, continually, with curiosity, courage and desire to grow.

 

Awareness is key.  Personal insight is pivotal.  Ability to identify and adjust specific actions and behaviors that make or break the potential for the organization's vision to come into being is fundamental to it's evolution and sustainable success.

 

Our coaching offerings target high-impact leadership behaviors that optimize already good leaders.  As part of our executive team solutions, our approach helps foster collective alignment, set vision, encourage active interchange ideas (no matter how far outside of existing paradigms), and hold each other accountable. A

 

With evolution at the senior level, you'll quickly see evolution throughout your organization.

THE BALANCE WAY

With aligned leaders and high-performers, your pathway to generative culture

will be supported, efficient and effective.

DRIVERs

There are four drivers for incremental leadership influence:  cultural alignment, resilience, creativity through crisis and relationship optimization. 

 

When addressed, fostered and refined, these drivers benefit not only each executive's performance and legacy, but that of the entire culture for years or even decades to come.

WHO WE COACH

At the C-Level we focus on helping senior leaders exert inspiring, graceful influence and modelling collaborative leadership throughout the organization. 

 

High-Performers are optimized to help the organization flex towards new, previously unimagined areas of growth with habits that will sustain success over the long haul.

Our culture-specific coaching helps fast-track your business into a resilient, productive and sustainable organization by targeting and helping leaders cultivate the very behaviors and competencies that affect not only the bottom line, but the spirit of the work along the way.

Process

Our process is simple:  define the desired outcome; identify desired behaviors; expose gaps; and equip your leaders with the skills they need to course correct and influence the organization towards the horizon you seek.

PATHWAY 1:

THE CURIOSITY GATEWAY

"Usually, when I make the wrong decision, it's because I didn't talk to a wide enough birth of people before making it."  Mark Benioff, CEO, Salesforce

 

When you head into a meeting, are you carrying expectations? When the going gets tough, do you seek to understand what is happening? When you ask questions, for which answers do you listen?

Leaders who love this course, which is based on Stanford's renowned "Creativity in Business," are seeking to elevate their instinct towards curiosity and productive questioning to enhance their real-time decision-making capabilities.

 

 

 

 

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Enhance your natural instinct towards ego-less, curiosity-driven thinking.

  • Equip you with powerful questions to draw out curiosity & innovative thinking in others.

  • Introduce you to the natural cycle of problem solving & innovation, to which you can apply real-time scenarios to help you move forward with clarity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT THEY SAY

  • "Knowing where I am within the cycle of problem solving has been the greatest gift. It prevents me from getting emotional and allows me to use the reality of each phase to guide next movements."

  • "It's simple but ... as I become more interested in others, others are becoming more interested in me, which makes inspiring change much easier."

  • "As I've improved my listening capabilities, employees are seeking me out to talk, which is bringing me a never-ending supply of priceless information."

PATHWAY 2:

MASTER THE PIVOT / NAVIGATING CHANGE

How agile are you? Can you easily shift with the demands of the ever-changing business landscape,  or do find yourself held back by emotional attachment or fear?

 

Especially now, when everything is shifting rapidly, and many are feeling the nudge towards "the fight to meaning," the skill of agility and responding to real-time data and energy is crucial to leading well.

Leaders who love this course are seeking to create consistency of response as a leader and person no matter the circumstance. They want a roadmap to creating steadiness under fire. And they want easy, applicable tools to help them get there.

 

 

 

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Identify your core personal & professional values.

  • Enhance your mental agility / harness powerful neuroplasticity-enhancing tools (ability to move back and forth while remaining emotionally steady).

  • Navigate change or crisis from a place of calm & clarity

  • Use powerful questioning to enhance your decision-making capabilities.

  • Deepen your understanding of the cycles of change so that you can easily identify where within the process you stand and make more informed decisions.

 

 

WHAT THEY SAY

  • "I thought you were either steady or emotional -- I didn't realize consistency could be a learned skill. Practicing what I learned in this course has completely changed the way people look at me, and the way I see myself."

  • "The mental agility tools I took from this course have served me far beyond work -- but the promotion didn't hurt either. :)"

PATHWAY 3:

ROAD TO IMPACT

Most of us become competent individuals. Many of of us become competent contributors. Some of us become and are competent leaders. But only an enlightened few become inspirational leaders. That’s the leap this course springboards to life.

 

Leaders who love this course are those who have been dealt opportunity, and don’t want to squander it. They understand that the skills that have carried them up until this point are not the skills that will help take them where they want to go next. They’ve often but not always been promoted to C-Suite, or empowered to drive cultural change – feats that can only be accomplished through inspiring others to greatness themselves.

 

 

In this course, you will learn how

to:

  • Use authentic insight to increase influence.

  • Use powerful questioning to inspire great action in others.

  • Shift legacy or unproductive thinking patterns.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT THEY SAY

  • "I'd seen these skills in others - the ability to inspire with ease. I just thought I didn't have the right personality when in reality I wasn't asking the right questions."

PATHWAY 4:

THE FINAL FRONTIER: CALL TO GREATNESS

You did it. You’ve succeeded. You’ve met most maybe all of your personal and professional goals. But you’re still yearning for something more.

 

Leaders who thrive in this course have a developing vision that they want to explore and have been met with their own powerful questions:

  • How do I ensure that all of this will mean something in the end?

  • How can I leave an authentic legacy?

  • Can I achieve what's in my heart without dismantling my hard work?

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this course we will:

 

  • Support you in removing roadblocks to clarity

  • Help you piece together your vision and mission

  • Guide you in building your plan in iterative, manageable steps

  • Empower you with tools to manage emotional pivots to ensure your sustained drive

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT THEY SAY

  • "Intellectually and emotionally challenging in all the right ways." 

  • "Exactly what i needed to make the shift I'd been thinking about for what seemed like a lifetime."

  • "Complete eye-opener. I'd been asking myself all the wrong questions."

  • "It's crazy to me now that unless I sought out this course, I may never have asked myself these critical questions. Everyone should take a course like this at some point in their life, but especially as their contemplating big steps."
