Leadership Coaching

We offer values-based leadership coaching for individuals who seek to improve their leadership skills, cultivate collaboration, and enhance performance.

In particular, we help leaders develop the mindsets and disciplines associated with servant leadership. This approach to leadership empowers followers and builds healthy cultures that promote service excellence.

Servant Leadership

When approaching leadership through a service mindset, leaders use their power to serve the needs of followers first and create collaborative relationships among themselves and their followers that allow everyone to lead and to serve.

Service-minded leaders value and develop the people they lead, build a strong sense of community, provide and share leadership, and consistently display openness and authenticity.1 

Benefits

Research demonstrates the benefits associated with practicing servant leadership.
Results include increased:

  • well-being
  • performance
  • innovation
  • service excellence

and decreased:

  • burnout
  • turnover intentions
  • negative workplace behaviors.2

For these reasons, organizations led by servant leaders financially outperform businesses and organizations led by traditional leadership styles.1

 

 

 

The Servant Leadership Coaching Process

 

Leaders who seek to serve others will benefit from servant leadership coaching. This approach is powerful because it supports leaders as they integrate the servant leadership mindsets and disciplines into their day-to-day context.

The process starts with a complementary conversation that explores your interest in servant leadership. This conversation helps us get to know each other better and to determine if there is a good fit. 

The next step is to engage in a longer discovery session. This conversation helps me get to know you, your situation, and your context more fully, and any goals you have associated with leadership development.

After the discovery session, the agreement is formalized and we begin the standard coaching sessions, which are  conducted virtually. At this point, you will also receive an overview of the servant leadership development process and the first handout in that process.

Note: You may choose to participate in this process individually or with other people on your leadership team.

Over time, we will explore a variety of servant leadership concepts: the fundamental motivation and mindsets, the developmental mind shifts, and the servant leadership principles and disciplines. When a bi-monthly format is followed, all of the concepts are covered within a year.

Coaching sessions are bi-monthly for forty-five minutes. You will be coached on a topic of your choice with a view to how a servant leader would address it. This approach allows you to focus on your current challenges while developing servant leadership skills.

We recommend participants complete their choice of leadership assessments before the coaching sessions start. The results can help leaders determine where they want to focus and provide a baseline for measuring improvement. Leaders can choose to take self-assessments of their:

1) organization’s health,

2) leadership, and/or

3) leadership and management strengths.

 

Through our partnership approach, you will  gain awareness, explore your mindsets, choose new ones, and develop your leadership skills as you progress toward becoming a servant leader.

Because the choice to become a servant leader can grow out of one’s faith, leaders who wish to discuss their leadership in light of faith and spirituality are encouraged to be in touch.
