 Leader Coaching FAQ 

Q: What is coaching, and when or why do I need it?

A: The most successful leaders seek out coaching throughout their careers. With coaching, you have a partner who understands the challenges you face. In sessions, you dissect challenges and move into solution space while honing influencing skills, driving sustainable business results, cultivating strong partnerships, motivating team members, and learning new powerful tools. The coach offers guidance and support, typically bi-weekly, while helping advance the client's biggest goals.


The coach holds the objective space for the transformational process–ensuring the client's accountability, clarity, and confidence.

Q: What is the most common theme you coach?

A: We have clients who come to us for coaching on career advancement, executive presence, public speaking, colleague interpersonal issues, work/life balance, and how to lead in a hybrid work environment. Effective Communication and Relationship Building are what we coach most: influencing or leading others with more ease, better recognizing and playing to team members' strengths, increasing the ability to speak in public, and finding ways to connect and tap into intrinsic motivation with peers and team members.


Effective communication and relationship building are necessary building blocks for enjoyable, effective, and lasting interactions.

Q: What is Neuroscience-based Leader Coaching?

A: The last few decades have brought forth vast amounts of research studies and advanced imaging proof uncovering how the brain works (neuroscience) and highlighting areas people behaviorally approach or avoid (think about giving/receiving feedback as an example!). Neuroscience-based coaching uses traditional motivational coaching tools and integrates the latest research on brain psychology to enhance or modify memory and behaviors.

Group Workshop FAQ

 Group Workshops FAQ 

Q: How do you ensure our team/company has a high Return on Investment in your workshops?

A: Our coaches and facilitators have been in your shoes, leading teams and wrestling with the varied demands on time and attention, and wanting to make sure the investment of time, energy, and money is worthwhile. We get it! The workshops are all designed to offer skills that work on fundamental building blocks for effective leadership and communication. These workshops are customized to your company's culture and include case studies and examples relevant to what you face. All skill practice is done with real-life situations that involve your teams in action-planning and problem-solving.

Q: Are your Group Workshops Neuroscience-based?

A: The majority of skills we offer are grounded in neuroscience-based studies and research. We are tapped into the industry's thought leaders and influencers, and we bring to clients the most recent research. We then include Simplified Coach practical skills so that the important concepts can be integrated into the way a person thinks and behaves. Effective communication and relationship building are the areas in which we thrive.

Q: What are your key clients requesting?

A: Actually, it depends on whom the request comes from… for example:


Learning & Development managers want to foster a productive and engaging work environment, promote learning and transformative leadership behaviors, retain talent, and offer opportunities for growth and promotion.  We work tirelessly to augment their efforts and ensure trainings are designed to impact their organizations and minimize pain points.


Executive Leaders value direct, sharp, and concise communication, desire high-quality results, and want tools to scale for growth and maintain/accelerate motivation/engagement. We work with them to offer skills and tools to differentiate them in the marketplace, driving innovation, strong camaraderie, and resilience.

Mid-Level Managers want productivity hacks, strategies for positively influencing cross-functional partners and tools for cultivating a strong presence with upper-level management and within their industry. We offer ways to foster empowerment, build a team culture aligned with values, create ways to make a unique difference/impact and help foster personal promotability. 

The New/Emerging Leaders want to gain skills, learn new topics to improve their leadership potential, and be an integral part of organizational culture & teambuilding opportunities. Topics such as trust, knowing one another’s strengths and leadership styles, and creating norms for accountability and autonomy all rise to the top of the requests.  We create learning modes that bring together fun, leadership skills, and personal growth.

Q: Are you doing workshops virtually?

A: All workshops in our catalog have a virtual version available and have been designed to maximize the engagement and interaction of all participants.


Hot topics include the following:

·    Virtual Engagement

Managed Services FAQ

 Managed Services FAQ 

Q: When are Managed Services right for my business?


A: Typically, for start-ups and mid-size businesses looking to grow their leaders and build company culture without adding substantial headcount, we work as an extension of your team, like an adjunct Leadership and Development function, offering trained facilitators and coaches to deliver leading-edge curricula grounded in practical application. You have one point of contact, making the learning journey simple to design and execute, and we take care of training and scheduling the facilitators/coaches who are the right match for your learning path.

Q: How do you ensure facilitators will be culture carriers for our business?


A: One of the greatest compliments we have received in working with clients in all industries over the past 20+ years is that we incorporate the company values with intentionality in the design and delivery of content. All materials are co-branded, and we work with you to create case studies and scenarios that are particular to your business. Therefore, the practice of skills is relevant to the pressures you face. We incorporate feedback from learners, and the program continues to be aligned with ever-changing business needs, with the pillars of your company culture creating a strong foundation for growth.


Q: How do you build a learning path that is right for my business?


A: Whether you want to create a learning path specific to new managers or develop a rolling schedule of learning cohorts throughout the organization with a mentorship program, we work with you to design the flow and frequency of learning modules. We meet to discuss goals, schedule, and content customization, and then the program launch is taken care of for you. Each learning path is developed with your industry, needs, and leadership goals integrated into the design.
