LEADER DEVELOPMENT

 

 

Are you struggling to retain top talent? 

Do you need more effective leaders and managers?

We can help - contact us today!

 

 

 

Great leadership is hard work because leading is about influencing people. All too often, employees who are good at their jobs get promoted into supervisor, manager, or leadership roles with fantastic technical skills, but little understanding of how to manage and effectively lead people. Good employees often start looking for, and finding, new jobs when they have a weak manager or leader. Don't let this revolving door happen in your organization. 

 

Our Leader Development and Coaching Programs help supervisors, managers, and leaders at all levels learn new skills and actionable tools that will help them lead, motivate, and manage more effectively, leading to increased team performance, and improved employee satisfaction and retention. We work directly with your organizational leaders to determine your organizational needs and desired outcomes. Then we create a leader development or coaching program to meet your needs and budget.

COACHING PROGRAMS

Individualized, 1-to-1 coaching helps future, early or mid-career, and experienced leaders and managers focus on the specific areas they need to improve their leadership. A variety of self-assessments help clients become more self-aware of their tendencies and preferences and how these tendencies and preferences play out in the workplace.

 

Our skilled Executive and Leadership Coaches help clients reflect on their behaviors and develop critical interpersonal skills needed to hold employees accountable, have difficult conversations, effectively negotiate conflict, provide quality constructive feedback, lead with emotional intelligence, and build high performing, committed teams. 

 

Coaching sessions are conducted face-to-face, using video-conferencing technology, or by telephone and clients generally meet with a Coach for 50-60 minutes every other week for 3, 6, or 12 months.

 

 

Coaching Outcomes and Client Satisfaction

 

  • "Our 1-to-1 coaching sessions have really helped me expand my perspective about certain situations and consider alternate motivations or reasons for others' actions. I have also become more aware of my communication deficiencies and improved my communication with other team members, customers, and leaders, which has improved my effectiveness."  USACE coaching client

  • "I have learned a lot about myself and how I can successfully approach different situations and team members that I engage with daily. I have become more confident in myself and in my communication skills. Every session with Dr. Favor is a new chance to talk things out and get an outside perspective. She really makes me think and look at the whole picture, the pros, and the cons to any given situation. I believe I have made great strides ... and that is because of the work that I’ve done with Dr. Favor."  USACE coaching client

  • "One of the greatest things our coaching has done for me is hold me accountable - you are really good at that. You held up a mirror to me and helped me look at things differently.

You also really helped me understand how to embrace my role on the team as a "cheerleader" and  how important that role is to our team success." USACE coaching client
