Far too many times, we have seen people who have been “promoted” to a supervisory/manager position because they were the “subject matter experts,” without any experience in leadership. Left undeveloped they sooner or later achieve a level of “incompetence” that prevents them from being successful. While we prefer to proactively develop an individual for a leadership role, more often than not, we get called in for “remedial” help.
Either way, we work one-to-one with each individual to assess, determine abilities, and coach to those abilities. We introduce best-practice skills and tools to help them develop into leaders that people WANT to follow.
A customized schedule is set up with the requesting organization after initial assessment interviews. Most coaching contracts need only 6-12 months, depending on the leadership development needs of the individual.
