Executive Coaching

Training & Leadership Success has a proven track record of helping executives hone skills and strategies to increase their impact and deepen the value they bring to the organization through coaching.

Our customized coaching programs have a significant impact on leadership performance, succession management, executive onboarding, and business results.

Why Choose Us for Your Coaching Needs?

We Understand the Challenges Facing Leaders Today

All our coaches come from industry and have held leadership positions. This knowledge, coupled with decades of coaching experience and professional training gives our coaches a unique perspective and effectiveness. We truly understand the challenges your leaders face.

Our Focus on Results

We use reliable, objective assessment methodologies to illuminate what shifts will have the greatest impact. We employ tools to measure tangible progress throughout each engagement and the coaching’s impact on the leader’s performance and your business.

We Create Sustainable Value for Your Organization

Every coaching program is tailored to the unique needs of the leader and aligned with business goals. We include input from key stakeholders and always include organizational context, culture and performance goals.

Our Proprietary Approach Includes Four Proven Phases

ALIGNMENT

At the start of each engagement the coach meets with the organizational sponsor, the executive and their manager to determine priorities for the engagement and ensure everyone is on the same page. 

We also get a “lay of the land” and gain an understanding of your organization’s priorities, challenges and how the executive’s growth fits into them.

ASSESSMENT

We interview the executive, their manager, and stakeholders to assess perceived strengths and development opportunities. Psychometric assessments are used to reveal personality, behavioral preferences and values that contribute to self-awareness. The coach can also “shadow” the executive at work to gain valuable insight on strengths and gaps. The coach then shares with the leader their custom assessment results. Then, along with the sponsor and their manager, sets engagement goals, identifies measures of success and builds a customized coaching plan to achieve results.

ACTION

Leaders must experiment and step outside of their comfort zone to grow. The executive and the coach meet regularly over the course of the project to help the leader practice new tools and approaches. Video-coaching, real-time feedback and other methods are used to fine-tune his or her behavior and approaches until desired results are achieved.

ACHIEVEMENT

A midpoint and endpoint meeting is led by the coach with the executive, their manager and Human Resources sponsor to discuss progress against goals. The executive’s growth is validated through a development tracking survey at the end of coaching and a plan is created to sustain their ongoing development and success.

Our Signature Coaching Programs

One-On-One Executive Coaching

The executive experiences an in-depth diagnostic interview, a customized 360° assessment and psychometric tools are used to gain valuable insight and deepen self-awareness. The coach also “shadows” the executive as they go about conducting meetings, delivering presentations and interacting with internal and external stakeholders at work.

Afterward, the coach unpacks the custom assessment results with the executive and a tailor-made individual leadership development plan that leverages their strengths and addresses their development needs is created. In-depth coaching sessions help the executive leverage their strengths and create meaningful change to deepen their leadership and business performance. The executive is encouraged to use their stakeholders throughout the process to gain powerful insights about their leadership strengths and gaps. The coach also uses both mid- and end-point surveys to obtain feedback from stakeholders to determine if the leader is improving in those areas identified as critical to the business and their individual leadership development plan.

Investment Options: 6- and 9-month coaching programs are available.

Targeted Performance Coaching

Sometimes an executive will have a specific need or skill that they want to target. The common needs TLS supports are to deepen: public speaking skills, executive presence, feedback skills and influence. After an alignment call with the executive and Human Resources sponsor, the coach creates a proposal detailing the number of sessions that will be required to develop the executive’s specific performance needs.

Investment Options: Typically, 4 to 6 sessions are scheduled.

Team Coaching

TLS’s team coaching enables leadership teams to develop beyond their current, collective capabilities and hone their communication, deepen their performance and resolve conflict. Although a group, it becomes a synergistic experience for individual leadership development as well. Group coaching creates intimate collaboration and creative thinking to address complex issues. TLS utilizes individual and team assessments to identify common group behaviors, demonstrate gaps in communication and perception and provide opportunities to work together to increase effectiveness.

High-Potential Leaders

This accelerated program is geared toward organizations that want to engage their high-potential or emerging leaders in coaching but do not want to commit to a longer engagement. It is also used in conjunction with our Leadership Academies, as an integrated coaching component. Like our One-On-One Executive Coaching Program, it leverages our proprietary coaching process: Alignment, Assessment, Action and Achievement, an individualized leadership development plan and in-depth coaching sessions and mid- and end of engagement measurements. It is faster and still highly effective.

Investment Options: 3- or 6-month programs are available.

To schedule coaching for your high potential leaders or add a coaching component to your leadership development program, contact us today.

Executive Onboarding

Training & Leadership Success reviews information on strengths and development needs gathered during the selection process. We then conduct an online or face-to-face 360° survey/interviews with key stakeholders and utilize psychometric assessments to gain insight and self-awareness. The goals of the onboarding coaching sessions are to: develop strategies for effective cultural assimilation, practice new behaviors, achieve small wins and work on action plans for successful integration into the executive’s new role.

Loren led four amazing communication workshops, spread over two different dates for our University this Spring Semester which were so well received and incredibly helpful for our students. She engages so well with people and has a teaching style that is fun and very impactful. These workshops were unusual for a Career Office to sponsor, but I am so glad we went in this direction with Loren-she gave over 100 students just the tools they needed to be a successful team member, network effectively, and market themselves. Thank you Loren, we look forward to having you back!

I was a participant, along with 27 other managers, in a leadership development program where Loren led 12 seminars. We benefitted a great deal from her knowledge about leadership and management skills. She is full of energy, has a highly engaging teaching style, invites everyone’s opinion and helps all parts of the room participate. Loren has a gift for using storytelling, role-playing, “fishbowls” and many other interesting and meaningful activities that helped us process and practice innovative ways of leading our teams.

I’ve attended many training classes over the years, and without a doubt Loren provides an ideal atmosphere for learning. I consider myself very fortunate to have had her as a trainer. It’s not just the skills I’ve learned from her but the confidence she instilled in me that have made me a much better leader.

Loren is an incredibly gifted executive coach. She challenged me in ways that truly helped to me to grow as a leader and helped to guide me through my transition into a new executive role. I appreciate the structure and guided conversations we shared through my first 90 days (and beyond) and believe our work together gave me the confidence to transition to a new organization and new leadership role.

Loren is a trusted confidante and I look to her for continued development. She is insightful and thoughtful in the areas of personal growth, leadership development and feedback. I always looked forward to our coaching sessions as I knew they would be filled with opportunities for me to reflect on my recent accomplishments and include strategies for me to tackle upcoming challenges. Our coaching conversations were thought-provoking and dynamic. I believe I am a better leader, colleague, and mentor because of our work together.

Loren is a wonderful facilitator. She led a 4-part team development program for our senior leadership team, focused on deepening trust, communication and collaboration. Even though our journey as a team has just begun, she has aimed us in the right direction and given us tools to succeed. Thank you!

Loren is able to anticipate organizational training needs and has strong curriculum design and facilitation skills. Loren designed and developed many of the leadership and professional development programs for our corporate university and facilitated these sessions virtually organization-wide. She engages her participants with her delivery, energy and excitement and I always looked forward to attending her sessions. If you need of a dynamic facilitator with great depth and knowledge of leadership development and executive coaching skills look no further.
