Executive Coaching

  • Executive coaching for high-performing leaders who have a current leadership challenge and a desire to take action and create a plan through an interactive process of learning and applying new behavior. These engagements typically last 6 months and include a 360-degree assessment.
  • Onboarding coaching helps foster a smooth transition into a new senior level position for both internal promotions and external hires and is a partnership between the coach, the new senior leader, and their manager. Senior-leader onboarding coaching helps newly placed faculty leaders and executives navigate areas most critical to their success. These engagements typically last 6 months.
  • Short-term coaching focused on a very specific leadership challenge that can be addressed in a 3-session engagement is offered for university leaders grades 59 and above.
