Coaching for leaders

Coaching for leaders in Orange County

Effective leadership skills are essential for today’s leaders. Using a variety of assessments, like DiSC 363®, LPI®,EQ Multi-Rater® or Firo-B Business will enable a leader to see strengths, areas of opportunities and possible blind spots in your leadership style.

Gallup conducted a survey and asked the question, “What is the #1 reason why employees choose to leave an organization?” The answer they found was, “a poor relationship with their boss.” Consider using coaching as a way to seek self-awareness and enhance your leadership capabilities. One study showed 96% of organizations report to have seen individual performance improve since coaching was introduced. As many as 92% also have seen improvement in leadership and management effectiveness (Coaching Counts, 2007).

Based on what you desire to achieve, Christie will help support you as you create a path towards a new positive outcome. The hard work, of course, is up to each individual- the more you try and put into new habits, the more effective you will become.

  • DiSC 363®

    Introducing Everything DiSC® 363™ for Leaders: a new kind of 360!

    Finally, a 360 for DiSC® users! But Everything DiSC® 363™ for Leaders isn't just any 360.

    So how is 363 different?

    First, we took the sting out of 360 feedback.
    For many leaders, 360s can be a frustrating experience. Open-ended comments can be unfocused and unhelpful and can even derail the learning process. With our exclusive selectable comments feature, CommentSmart, raters can give focused, balanced, constructive feedback—that the leader can actually use.

    Then, we made it easier to understand and use.
    Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders isn’t a collection of dry spreadsheets and charts without any explanation or story. Clear visuals and a conversational narrative style interpret and explain the data, making the report easy to understand and use.

    And finally, we answered the “Now what?”
    With a lot of 360s, the leader's response can be, “Now what?” Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders answers that question by giving leaders their next steps with three things they can focus on now.

    All-New Profile
    Research-validated online assessment with a 22+ page 360° profile helps leaders understand how others see them, using intuitive, easy-to-read visuals, rich cuts of data and feedback breakdowns, plus three personalized strategies for effectiveness.

    Leaders and Raters

    • Raters are given a two-part online assessment: the same Leadership Behavior section that the leader takes and the Leadership Requests section that asks which leadership practices they’d like to see the leader do more of.
    • Raters are broken into four groups: Direct Reports, Peers, Manager and Other. Any combination of groups may be used and leaders can have an unlimited number of raters.

  • PI® & MBTI®

    See a Fresh Perspective

    Leaders have many constituents; both internal and external. Collecting data from a 360 degree instrument, such as the LPI® helps to capture a picture of the leader. Kouzes and Posner share the number one reason why leaders succeed is the quality of their relationships with their constituents, in particular their direct reports. Having multiple perspectives from internal and external constituents, the leader can then implement a plan to create a positive and powerful change.

    Leadership is not innate and it can be learned. There is no fast track to excellence; you must do the hard work. Researcher, K. Anders Ericcson shares what separates the good performers from the expert performers is hours of practice. The estimate is that it takes 10,000 hours to achieve the highest level of expertise in an area. That's just under 3 hours of practice a day for 10 years!

    Learning never stops. Think of learning like eating a meal: it's something you do everyday!

Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner, authors of the best-selling book The Leadership Challenge. When you integrate findings from the LPI Feedback Report with results from the MBTI assessment, the intersection of personality preferences with applied behavior practices offers insights that individuals can use as the basis for further development and action planning.
