Amy’s strengths are her enthusiasm for the art and science of coaching; having a wealth of resources that she can bring to the picture as job aids; reflecting back what is being shared, but doing it in a way that expands my own interpretation of things; and offering up alternative scenarios—helping me to figure out how to get to those alternative scenarios.

Coaching provided me with a set of tools to assist in my professional goals. It will definitely make a difference. I have seen progression toward my goals. I feel it will not only help in my current position but for the rest of my career. Amy really helped me with self-awareness and to use a coaching term, "presence."

Individual Leadership Coaching — Leadership Coaching is a Game Changer

Coaching Game Plan

Coaching Game Plan

We work with all levels of leadership from emerging leaders to the “C” suite. What do they all have in common? They are interested in moving forward—they want to move away from confusion and towards clarity and the next level of leadership.

Coaching is about being fully present with our clients, hearing their needs and aspirations, and partnering with them to achieve their professional development goals. Our clients have a coach who is unconditionally on their team, with the single focus of guiding them to meet challenges and build their arsenal of strengths with confidence.

Leadership coaching is a personal development process, whatever the level, to help you be more successful in your current role and move forward in your organization.

The General Coaching Game Plan

Have you ever committed to a workout plan only to find yourself sore after the first workout? Were you disappointed that you did not see results right away? Did you stick with it and start to see results? Those results motivated you to keep at it, rearrange your routine, and see even greater results, until you couldn’t believe you had been transformed. That’s coaching! The ahh-hahs are the first step, then it’s the daily workouts that keep you in the game. Coaches help you develop your individual playbook and keep you in the game.

Leadership Coaching Game Plan

  • Partner with the client to understand the current situation through intake,active listening, staying curious, and powerful questions.
  • Determine coaching and development goals, both in the short- and long-term.
  • Help the client gain greater awareness of what has kept them from reaching their goals “up until now.” Help the client understand their unique lens, beliefs, strengths, and blind spots.
  • Use tools when warranted to help build awareness such as 360 feedback, emotional intelligence, personality and values-based assessments.
  • Encourage the development of a leadership development plan.
  • Create new behaviors for the client to practice and hone associated with their personal development goals.

The Equipment/Tools

  • Coaching tools are like video replays to help clients see themselves better. The main tool is the art and science of asking great questions—questions that stimulate a client’s thinking and feelings so that they learn something new. The other tools I use are assessments and frameworks to help clients deepen self-awareness and change the focus of their lens.
  • 360 Instruments (Leadership Circle 360). Obtain feedback from those you work with about how you achieve results and lead, and understand the relationship between patterns of action and the internal assumptions that drive behavior.
  • Emotional Intelligence Assessment (EQ-i). Explore your strengths and development areas around leadership intelligence (versus IQ).
  • Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Assess how your personality helps define how you like to work and drives how you lead and communicate with others.
  • DiSC and Social Styles: Learn how your behaviors offer a unique value to your team.
  • Values Clarification. Understand what’s important to you about work and life, and how they are satisfied in the workplace.
  • Strengths Analysis. It’s easier to strengthen a strength than fix a flaw. Authentic leadership style capitalizes on your strengths.
  • Cognitive/Behavioral Techniques. Learn how your thinking, beliefs and feelings affect your actions and outcomes. Conquer self-limiting thoughts and beliefs.
  • Interpersonal/Communication Skills Development. Build your communication arsenal whether for individual crucial conversations or for motivating the team.
