Leadership Coaching

Expert, customized leadership coaching programs and individual sessions.  Participants gain: Improved communication skills, more self-confidence, and a greater capacity for motivating teams and improving productivity.


Leadership Coaching Programs & Individual Coaching Sessions

Whereas traditional training focuses on building knowledge from a professional development perspective, leadership coaching focuses on building knowledge and skills from a professional and personal development perspective. Leadership coaching uses self assessment, goal setting, support of the individual’s direct supervisor, real-life practice, and action planning to help the leader make sustained changes in leadership skills and abilities. Individual coaching programs and individual coaching sessions are completely collaborative and can be customized to meet your individual or company needs.

  • Individual assignments in-between sessions to emphasize learning.  

  • Each program starts with a self- assessment, goal setting, and feedback is gathered from the participant’s supervisor and direct reports as appropriate. 

  • At the end of each program, we measure the participant’s progress and create a plan for sustained change.

Working with Skye….

“I immediately felt comfortable working with Skye. She has a calm, but lively and engaging demeanor that helped me feel connected to her. She stands out as a coach because she’s able to understand what’s not being said and brings this into our session so that we can discuss this together. She simultaneously pushes me to think about what’s possible for me as a leader and helps me feel supported in breaking from workplace norms that aren’t aligned with my values.” - Nariah Broadus
