Coaching a leader without seeing the leader in action is a bit like coaching a basketball team without being on the court. You don’t have nearly enough data to identify the leader’s strengths and weaknesses, and you have no way of knowing what is the most important first step for him to take in creating a high-performing team, let alone the next step after that.
We have found in-the-moment data collection on leader/team dynamics to be an incomparably rich foundation for effective coaching of leaders and their teams. With this high-impact approach, we observe leaders and their teams interacting in their regularly scheduled weekly business meetings, then immediately conduct 1:1 coaching sessions with the leader. Through a 6-12 month engagement that includes targeted coaching and feedback, as well as spot coaching for team members and the design and facilitation of quarterly off-sites, expect dramatic—even exponential—improvement in the effectiveness and satisfaction of the leader, the team, and the organization.
