In corporations, Human Resources often has responsibility for talent development, employee retention, and succession planning. This responsibility could reside with the CEO in small businesses.

With people development as an integral element of business strategy, you desire to equip executives, senior leaders, and rising leaders with skills to manage through the challenges and changes of today and the future.

To increase leadership effectiveness and impact, businesses cannot:

  • Want managers to transform into leaders without helping them develop and model the desired skills.
  • Expect leaders to take their performance to the next level without intentional support.
  • Approach leadership development by trial and error without structure and measurable outcomes.
Purposeful leadership development and organizational development
empower individual and business success.

Stakeholder Centered Coaching® | Steps

STEP 1: Define a Leadership Goal Important to the Leader and Organization.

The Leader chooses a goal, determines the Stakeholders impacted by current behaviors, and will be beneficiaries of the Leader’s behavior change.

STEP 2: Gain Buy-in from Stakeholders Who Will Engage in the Process.

Each Stakeholder is asked to actively participate in the Leader’s improvement on an ongoing basis.

STEP 3: Complete Stakeholder-Based Planning.

The Leader and coach collaborate to develop an action plan based on the Stakeholders’ input.

STEP 4: Collect Stakeholder Input Monthly.

The Leader conducts a monthly check-in with each Stakeholder to ask for feedback on past observations and suggestions on what to do more, better, or differently going forward.

STEP 5: Measure Leadership Change from the Stakeholders' Views.

At the designated interval(s), conduct a formal mini-survey with the Stakeholders to assess the Leader’s progress on the chosen development goal.
