Where Preparation Meets Opportunity

Home Leadership and Business Strategy Coaching

What are traits of a successful Leadership and Business Strategy Coach?

There are many coaches that specialize in business or executive coaching, so what makes a good Leadership and Business Strategy Coach?

  1. They must have a wealth of relevant and appropriately high-level business qualifications, experience, skills.  There are many brilliant coaches, but far fewer with that business acumen and “boardroom credibility” who can quickly understand your business and bring added value through their own experience of developing and executing strategies across many businesses and industries.
  2. Beyond their business skills and experience, they must clearly also be a skilled and experienced coach.
  3. They must have the discipline to recognize their primary role is to coach, not consult. Their role is to bring awareness from the client through listening and reflection, then help the client develop their own strategy, not consult or otherwise give advice on what specifically the strategy should be.

A Business Strategy Coach, then, must have the combination of many years of relevant experience, humility and presence to coach rather than consult, ability to be a sounding board and reflect ideas to you and your team, all while bringing their own ideas to the table and drawing fully on their knowledge of successful coaching practices.

The Leadership and Business Strategy Coaching Process

Phase 1


At the start, our executive coaches guide leaders to identify the coaching objectives they need to address during their coaching engagement. Based on targeted assessments, leaders gain awareness of strengths and development areas, and then create a development plan focused on measured goals and alignment with organizational objectives.

Phase 2


Next, our executive coaches engage leaders through regular one-on-one coaching sessions and experiential learning exercises. Throughout this phase, the coach supports the leader to be accountable to achieve (and sustain) identifiable goals. Midway through, the coach facilitates a three-way meeting with the leader and the organization to review progress and goal development.

Phase 3


Finally, leaders gain greater self- awareness, stronger critical thinking, improved communication skills, and enhanced competencies in order to boost productivity, performance, and organizational results. At the conclusion of the engagement, the coach reviews the overall progress and plans for continued development with the leader and organization.
