Our Approach is Learn by Doing

An executive coaching session with two participants

Our style of teaching is immersive and hands-on, where you learn by doing. As you learn a new concept, you immediately test it out. You get feedback from your classmates and instructors who model co-active coaching to inspire the desired action. We're with you every step of the way as you strive to grow from the experience. This technique builds your coaching muscles as you integrate the new-found knowledge and skills into your coaching toolkit.


Our Proven Method
 

Step 1: Conceptualize

Ask the powerful questions to inspire change in your client. Your questions deepen your client's self-awareness.

Example: What would it mean to actively listen to my direct reports at a Team meeting?

 
Step 2: Experiment

As that awareness grows, they begin to experiment with different choices

Example: I tried to listen but I can’t help offering strong opinions.

 
Step 3: Reflect

With self-reflection and your expert feedback, your client begins to process what worked and what didn't work.

Example: I felt a loss of control because I am used to driving meetings and strategy.

 
Step 4: Integrate

As your client repeats this process, she will integrate a new pattern of behavior into her professional life.

Example: I need to change my perception of how we get to a successful meeting outcome.
