Our coaching programs help you lead skillfully through these challenges – both the predictable and the unforeseen – to achieve your mission and organizational goals.  Our work spans leadership and management topics, with particular specialization in helping clients:

  • Increase confidence as a leader in new and uncertain environments

We work with C-suite, executive, mid-level, and front line leaders. Each engagement has a customized focus on overcoming the specific barriers holding you back.


Our Process

Our coaching programs draw heavily upon best practices from applied behavioral science, performance psychology, neuroscience, adult development, and learning psychology.

We guide you through a systematic, thought-provoking, and creative process to help you succeed as a leader.

Together over several months we will:

  • Clarify your mission, your goals, and what you want to achieve

  • Understand the challenges, roadblocks, and blind spots holding you back

  • Build strategies and plans to accomplish your goals and overcome obstacles

  • Build the mindsets, skills, and habits that support execution

  • Hold you accountable for taking skillful action to make it happen

We offer 6-month and 12-month programs.

GETTING STARTED

The first step is to schedule a 30-minute consultation to see if coaching is right for you. During our conversation that call, we'll talk about what's getting in the way of achieving your goals and see if coaching could help. We'll also answer any questions you have about the process.

Team Solutions

 

High performing teams execute many things well and intuitively adjust to each other in the midst of complexity and change.  But to do that they must master the fundamentals, which many teams skip in the name of just getting to work or floundering by following the management fad du jour.  If you neglect the foundational elements on a team, you'll have deep, chronic problems that get worse over time.  Effective teams need a solid foundation built on clarity and a common understanding of:

  • Goals

  • Roles

  • Processes

  • Interpersonal Operating Agreements

Until you have the foundations in place no amount of cocktail parties, ropes courses, or empowerment training can make your team work effectively. But if you've constructed the foundations well, you can move to higher order achievements and create exponential breakthroughs.

INTERACTIVE APPROACH

We work with teams at all stages of the life-cycle. We do not provide "sit-and-get" lecture trainings. Our approach is highly interactive and based on adult learning best practices.

We administer an upfront assessment to determine your team's maturity level and then tailor a series of targeted workshops to help you take your team to their next level. Topics addressed include the following:

  • Team Foundations - Goals, Roles, Process, Interpersonal Operating Agreements

  • New Leader and Team Integration

  • Boosting Team Productivity

  • Leveraging Strengths and Personality Dynamics

  • Innovating and Creating Breakthrough Solutions

  • Repairing Conflict

  • Harnessing Conflict for Creativity

The length of engagement will depend on your team's specific situation, but many of our team engagements feature an initial assessment plus four half-day workshops.

Workshops & Training

We draw on cutting-edge research in the behavioral sciences to provide highly-interactive, experiential, and "sticky" trainings.

 

We do not believe in "sit-and-get," multi-day, lecture-style training. It just doesn't work. It might be entertaining and you might learn some new things, but it rarely results in lasting change. In fact, usually the only thing changing is that your bookshelf gets cluttered with a new binder you will never look at again.

Instead, we draw on cutting-edge research in the behavioral sciences to provide highly-interactive, experiential, and "sticky" trainings. We conduct a quick needs assessment to target the solution to your organization and then deliver a series of phased workshops that allow participants to practice and build skills over time. This approach results in significantly greater individual, team, and organization performance improvements that stick.

Topics include:

  • Transitioning from Individual Contributor to Manager

  • Transitioning from Manager to Senior Executive

  • Leadership Presence

  • Leading Through Conflict

  • Managing Change

  • Developing Political Savvy

  • Setting Performance Expectations

  • Creating a Compelling Vision

  • Delegating

  • Providing Feedback

  • Time & Energy Management

  • Leveraging Your Strengths

  • Navigating Your Career

  • Fostering Breakthrough Innovation

  • and more

Career Coaching

 

GreenLead provides 1x1 career coaching with talented, ambitious individuals to help you confidently make your next professional move and create a meaningful life you love.

We guide you through a systematic, thought-provoking, and creative process to investigate and answer questions like the following:

  • What do I really want to do next?

  • What's my unique value set - purpose, passion, strengths, skills?

  • How does my unique value set align with opportunities I see?

  • Which opportunities should I explore and nurture? Which should I ultimately choose?

  • What's my strategy to get from here to there?

  • What specific, tactical actions can I take to make this happen?

  • How can I prepare to crush it in my next role?

While you can think and plan on your own, working with a coach helps you ensure you've done enough deep reflection work (in the midst of a busy life) to feel confident in your decision long-term.

Our coaching packages include 10 sessions

Coaching is done virtually at times convenient for you.

Note: Just to clarify, Career Direction coaching isn't resume review, networking tips, linked-in updates, etc., although we may touch on that if necessary. Rather, it's an intentional process to discover what you want to achieve and build plans to help you get from here to there.
