How ListenForward Can Help

Leadership Coaching

Seeds growing

The Challenge
The art and science of leadership is ever changing. As the speed and complexity of change increases, modern executive leaders must learn to be more adaptive, resilient, and growth-minded. Leaders who make the choice to understand, develop, and strengthen their leadership capacity and dexterity will make the greatest impact.

The Opportunity
I coach current and aspiring CEO’s and C-level leaders. Each coaching engagement is sensitive to context, complexity, culture, and grounded in the near- and long-term challenges and aspirations of the leader. The engagement is a collaborative process of exploration, discovery, feedback, goal setting, practice, observation, experimentation, and continuous learning.

Team Coaching

Team members

The Challenge
Teams are the primary system to propel any organization forward. Yet research and experience show teams who realize their true potential and impact are the exception. As the speed and complexity of change increases, and the how, when, and where of work gets redefined, teams and team members must continuously assess and improve how they work together, how their work gets done, and how they grow as a team.

The Opportunity
I coach executive leadership teams and the teams they lead. I assess and diagnose how teams operate in context of mission, strategy, challenge, or opportunity. The team coaching objective is to strengthen and sustain team performance and impact and help team members learn, adapt, and grow, over time.

Leadership Advisory

The Challenge
As executive leadership teams navigate accelerated change the potential for people and business strategy misalignment increases. Successful people strategies should be dynamic and grounded in a process of continuous assessment and improvement. Are your talent, culture, and workplace processes and practices keeping pace and aligned with the outcomes you seek to achieve as an organization?

The Opportunity
I serve as a trusted advisor to the executive leadership team. I assess the alignment and effectiveness of people, talent, culture, and workplace strategy and practices. I design processes and programs to improve alignment, build leadership capability, and strengthen culture to achieve sustained impact.
