We believe that the best way to accelerate growth for leaders and their organizations is to focus on and leverage their unique strengths. We have implemented and adjusted Best-In-Class coaching processes to tailor them to the distinct needs of high achieving executives. Our clients are CEOs and Senior Executives who have each developed their own success formula but also embrace the philosophy of continuous improvement and learning as a part of their growth process.
According to Stanford University’s 2014 Executive Coaching Survey, coaching is proven to be an accelerator of results and more than 30% of CEOs now have a coach.
Executive coaching is a growth accelerator and often used to help leaders promote and implement collaboration and integration:
  • 57.1% of CEOs are receptive to leadership coaching and feedback. This is good news for leaders and shareholders because senior executives understand that the ability to embrace productive change that increases long term ROI could be the difference between a good organization and a visionary one.
  • According to a study in the Manchester Review, executive coaching’s ROI is estimated at 5.7 times the initial investment in coaching.

Coaching goals are carefully crafted based on an in-depth Discovery Session that ensures that the Cadence coaching calls are anchored in concrete measurable objectives. Mandates typically begin with a 6-month minimum time frame. Here is a preview of some typical outcomes from coaching:
The support of a trained coach can help you to make the space in your mind and in your agenda to create new levels of impact. You discover where and when to say NO to the multiple demands on your time to ensure you deliver on your priority YES goals.
Our coaching process puts a lot of emphasis on discovering, carefully articulating, and writing very specific, measurable and thrilling goals for you and your organization. All our clients have achieved new levels of leadership that are conduits to consistently deliver on longer term strategic objectives without sacrificing short term goals.
Breaking silo habits comes from the top. Working with a coach helps the leader to see and seek new perspectives, which can foster the optimal levels of cooperation required to enable your different departments and divisions to align and engage around common goals.
As you reconnect with your own core values and begin to use them as your decision making G.P.S., you become completely aligned and exude a new level of contagious energy. This has a direct impact on the people you lead.
