Executive Coaching

Leadership Is A Contact Sport

The challenge for HR is not helping executives to better understand the practice of leadership; but rather getting them to practice their understanding of leadership. In other words improving leadership effectiveness is not so much a matter of more ‘Know-How’, but in most cases more a matter of ‘Show-How’.

This is a critical insight for HR and business leaders. It is the basis of the Stakeholder Centered Coaching methodology. Marshall Goldsmith’s acclaimed Stakeholder Centered Coaching process quickly identifies tipping point behaviors and leverages a clear process enabling leadership growth to become embedded in day-to-day interactions on the job.


Who is it for?

Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching is designed for successful executives who have been singled out by their organization as top leaders and high potentials.
