LeaderShape Coach/Mentors have all undertaken formal training in coaching and facilitation and have backgrounds as business leaders, often at Chief Executive or Board level. Coaching programmes are flexible in delivery so can be virtual or face-to-face meetings, or a combination depending on logistics. Most programmes include reasonable access to your coach/mentor between sessions.
Being business leaders enables rapid understanding of the key issues of your organisation. It helps us to shape and hone the questions and challenges we pose to you as a client to transform performance and behaviours. It brings fresh perspectives and alternative interpretations based upon personal experience and provides focus on sustainable performance and results.
Evaluating the Impact
The LeaderShape approach includes evaluation of the impact of the work we do. We track progress against desired outcomes with the client. With the client, we can provide feedback to the Sponsor Organisation using an evaluation based upon the Kirkpatrick Four Level model for assessing Training Effectiveness at predetermined agreed points in the programme.
Executive Coaching has been demonstrated to be over 90% effective in developing senior executives. A recent CIPD report (‘Making the case for Coaching’) provides data showing a return on investment of between 221% and 570% - pretty impressive.
