Coaching for Leaders, Managers, Spokespersons and Communicators

Leadership compassLoeb Group executive coaching is one-on-one time with an expert who is 100% invested in your success. The coaching relationship builds skills, challenges existing mindsets and introduces new perspectives, and boosts confidence.

Coaching relationships are typically short-term: often three consecutive months, or quarterly for a defined set of time, depending on the client’s needs and schedule.  The coach and client, with input culled from a self-assessment and the client’s supervisor, identify concrete desired outcomes.

Trust between the coach and client is hugely important and each relationship is discreet.  The descriptions below are potential areas of focus for one-on-one coaching, but as each individual’s needs and goals are different, so is the scope of the coaching relationship.
