Effective leaders don't bowl alone.
In today’s cutting edge organizations, it’s less about what you know as a leader and more about how you access what others know.
Effective leaders are multipliers. They have the essential interpersonal capacities of being able to relate well to others, develop teams to work cohesively, and use every conversation as an opportunity to keep the organization’s vision and strategic focus up front and center. They are authentic about what they don’t know – leaving open the opportunity for others to contribute their unique intelligence and leadership capability to the task of scaling the organization’s challenges in getting to results. Effective leaders make visible to others the power of showing up as a continuous learner.
Every leader, even the best of them, has ineffective behaviors and communication patterns that can unintentionally limit effectiveness in leading change with and through others. We’re human. Our blind spots and self-rationalizing tendencies can make it difficult to both discover the ways in which we need to grow and intentionally engage in an improvement process. This is where coaching comes in. The support of someone who is fully committed to your success in achieving your leadership aspirations can provide essential fuel to accelerate your performance. It can also make your growth journey more fun.
An option available to assist a leader in defining his or her learning agenda is the Leadership Circle Profile (LCP). A breakthrough among 360-degree assessments, the LCP can foster a coaching conversation about the relationship between patterns of leadership action and internal assumptions that drive those behaviors. Results provided by the LCP highlight how improvement in one or two leadership qualities can greatly upgrade the effectiveness of your conversations with others in leading change.
Each engagement begins with a conversation about your aspirations and challenges and is custom designed to address your needs.
"My coaching conversations with Linda have been the single most transformative experience in my professional growth. Not only did those conversations help me to understand myself professionally in ways that I’d never imagined, but Linda helped me see the possibilities of working with my colleagues in ways that I also had not (yet) imagined."
