Services: Leadership Coaching

Let’s face it, while often rewarding, leading is hard! In fact, it’s often like feeling caught between a rock and hard place.

“The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.”
– Jim Rohn

An Edge Leadership coach is your thinking partner, particularly when dealing with complex people issues. Through the support, guidance and resources we provide, our coaching clients experience:

  • Increased confidence in using new skills related to managing people, such as evaluating performance, conducting tough conversations, dealing with conflict and motivating teams;
  • Less stress and an unflappable ability to manage despite ambiguity, chaos and crises;
  • Better relationships all around – managing up, sideways and down;
  • Clarity in their role as well as their vision for their organization and how to reach that vision;
  • Increased job satisfaction. One client said, “I now love my job and look forward to coming to work every day. Before, I dreaded the day and what I would have to face.”

Coaching may be applicable in any of the following situations:

  • A leader is in a new role – either with additional responsibilities or new to management. Coaching provides insight, tools, skill development and support for developing quickly into the new role both tactically and relationship-wise.
  • During organizational transitions – to help the leader gain clarity and successfully drive forward momentum.
  • To optimize top leadership performance – Coaching helps connect leaders with their values and passion, and find ways to fully utilize and leverage their talents. As a result, leaders create a signature leadership presence that is effective at creating alignment and positive energy in their teams.
  • An individual has blind spots that are sabotaging his or her success. Coaching can help identify and focus on specific areas for individual improvement within the organization. This kind of situation could apply to helping someone who is competent in his or her current role prepare for the next step on the career ladder or when an executive is faced with negative perceptions in the workplace, often about abrasive behavior, and needs to understand the behavior that creates those perceptions and implement healthy strategies to minimize or eliminate those perceptions.

Our coaching clients:

  • Are motivated in their career;
  • Care about providing great leadership;
  • Want to increase their self awareness;
  • Are willing to admit they don’t have all the answers and are proactively seeking a non-judgmental, supportive coach to help them find new ways of thinking, being and doing; and
  • Commit to regular meetings (virtually or in person) in order to stay on schedule and move systematically toward their goals.
