Common Challenges that can be
effectively met with Coaching:

and is in an expanded or stretch role.
--Coaching can build skill, bolster confidence, and accelerate
• Leader is a high performer with rough edges that limit
influence and impact.

specialize in this type of work).

Common Challenges associated with the
quality of Coaches and Coaching Practice:
• Many “executive coaches” really provide personal
coaching, without tying the work to organizational objectives
or clearly defining outcomes and success measures - the leader
“feels better” but doesn’t see much impact.
• “Boutiques” often provide access to a limited number
of coaches with widely varying skill, experience, and
training; whereas large agencies are often too expensive and
don’t have enough local resources.
• It can be difficult to find a resource that can not only
provide access to coaches, but also provide the expertise to

How we help you meet the challenges:
1) We work with you to find the right coach.
We draw from a cadre of over 20 NW-based coaches
(Seattle/Tacoma/Portland), as well as many others around the
country. All of our coaches have advanced degrees and coaching
certification or training. They employ standard LE best
practices, while bringing diverse skills, approaches,
backgrounds. Our coaches build strong relationships, clearly
define the work, and measure impact. We take great care in
matching clients according to development needs, styles, and
coach backgrounds. Usually, clients receive at least two
matches and choose their coach.
2) We then get right to your coaching solution.
With a solid plan and a flexible approach to coaching delivery
that works for you...we coach.
3) We stand out because we are also able to partner with your
organization to design internal coaching approaches and “programs”
that integrate with existing core practices and programs while
incorporating best practices to make coaching a truly
impactful organizational initiative.
