Coaching for Leadership Development
Executive Coaching is a type of specialized coaching to help people in leadership positions improve their thinking, working and being with people. Leadership development comes from a place of being others-centered to inspire employees to follow their lead.
It's a sacred partnership that requires a deep level of trust.
The leader must feel safe enough to uncover self-limiting beliefs or mistruths with the coach as a guide. Then, with courage and compassion from her coach, the coachee is guided through a safe passage to land. All in all, it can be an empowering experience.
The process is robust and works so well that clients say that coaching is fantastic. The reason is that coaching is honest and authentic. When the connection is confirmed, the impact is significant. That's what the goal is. Momentous change that lasts, for results that matter.
The leadership coach and client have a confidential relationship focused on developing skills related to their goals. Skills-building typically falls within areas of building relationships or improving personal effectiveness.
Real-Time Application and Learning
Our programs are two-fold, in that clients learn theory by applying leadership principles to current issues in real-time. Second, the combination of used approaches supported by coaching can transform ordinary managers into exceptional ones.
Results that Matter
We've known for decades that employee engagement affects the bottom line. So much so, it's now imperative to have managers who model the way. Since 2009, A Strategic Edge Coaching has helped many managers and business owners improve their leadership skills and company results.

Steps to how we work
After both parties have decided to move forward, a proposal will be offered with three options to address a range of level of needs and budget.
Once the contract has been signed, the coach will contact the coachee and arrange the first meeting. Early stages include setting a goal for the coaching subject to approval by her superior. The superior will be informed regarding the coachee's level of engagement and attendance, but the contents of the sessions remain confidential between coach/coachee.
At the end of the engagement, a summary of progress and goal achievement will be provided by the coach to the sponsor. In return, feedback will be requested from the coachee, the superior or the client/sponsor.

After getting promoted, I hired Linda to help me improve my communication skills. I didn't have time to take a course and I needed real time guidance to help me with my writing.
As a result of working together, my manager noticed a significant improvement in my written work. My main priorities were writing business cases and professional looking emails, letters and performance reviews. My boss likes the fact that he no longer has to edit what I send him.
I learned how to address a group of people among different levels of management. And how to facilitate meetings that engaged everyone in the room.
But one of the greatest benefits for me was having a safe place to detail my issues, concerns and find solutions. I learned a lot, and would recommend her to anyone. It was great!
