Leadership Coaching

Leadership Coaching for  Authentic Performance 

Leadership coaching creates self-aware leaders who build high-performance teams. Leadership is inherently relational. A leader’s succes lies in their ability to build relationships with others and with ourselves. Leaders will unlock higher levels of self-awareness, authenticity and inspiration that takes their teams, other departments and the entire organization to new levels of performance. 

Our leadership coaching programs have earned us a top consecutive spot on San Diego Business Journal’s Top Executive Training Companies, and helped our clients earn top industry awards including Best Places to Work. 

What is Leadership Coaching?

What is Leadership Coaching

Coaching for Leaders

Just like professional athletes look to athletic coaches and aspiring singers look to voice coaches, leaders look to leadership coaches.

Our leadership coaches work one-on-one with leaders, and with leadership teams.

Through coaching, they help leaders gain new levels of self-awareness, self-generation and achieve long term excellence.

Leadership coaches charge an hourly fee for one-on-one coaching sessions or a one-time fee for specific programs they deliver.

Leaders Who Coach

Leadership Coaching can also be defined as an approach or leadership style to use.

This is when leaders coach their own team members to achieve success.

In that case, Leaders hire leadership coaches for coaching programs to gain knowledge, skills, tools and abilities in coaching. Both definitions of leadership coaching integrate the principles of coaching inside the Leadership Industry.

And the best part? All of our high-impact leadership development coaching services can be delivered virtually, via phone, videoconferencing, or a Web platform — allowing for unparalleled flexibility to meet your needs.

Who is Leadership Coaching For?

Contrary to popular belief, coaching is not just reserved for upper management. In fact, it is available to leaders and aspiring leaders at all levels of their careers.







Leadership coaches develop and deliver effective programs so that leaders can progress from their career level.

Some programs help aspiring leaders develop their leadership skills to prepare them for their first leadership role. Other programs help career-driven leaders develop their personal leadership style inside their new role as leaders. Lastly, higher-level programs are for C-Suite Leaders to develop high performance teams and coach their own leaders.

Coaching takes leadership development to a deeper, more sustainable level.

Assessment Tools We use

Our assessment tools include qualitative and quantitative needs assessment tools such as structured interviews, and assessments ranging from the EQi 2.0 to 360° Leadership Assessments.

Is Coaching A Leadership Style?

Absolutely. Leaders need to be highly effective in applying different leadership styles and roles to situations.

They need to be responsible for stepping into many different roles like, Chief Coaching Officer, Chief Management Officer, Chief Meeting Facilitator, Chief Trust Officer, (the list goes on).

Because of these different roles, leaders need to understand what role to play for a specific situation.

 Leaders need to put their coaching hat on inside their one-on-one meetings with their team members.

As they step into the role of a coach, leaders help their team members discover what barriers they are facing when it comes to reaching their goals and how to overcome them.
