Leadership Coaching

Intentional, professional coaching with the most important topic there is: YOU!

One-on-one coaching sessions include 2-4 hours per month of dedicated time, and may be weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on your needs. Meetings will be held in person in your office, Authentic Development offices in downtown Chicago, via Skype, or via telephone. 

Coaching is a specific process of interaction over a period of time that encourages a shift in who you are, what you do, and how you do it. This transformative, curious form of conversation and listening expands your ability to make significant changes, move forward in new areas and have more of what you really want in your work and your life.

Typical topics:

  • Communication
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Important Life Relationships
  • Stress
  • Career Advancement
  • Connecting Purpose to Work

You can expect your coach to:

  • Commit to an open, honest, collaborative coaching relationship. 
  • Be a partner in bringing out the best, the deepest, and the truest in you. 
  • Provide safety, encouragement and support; an environment in which you can relax and explore. 
  • Respect the confidentiality agreement.
  • Expand your view of what is possible and promote discovery of new insights. 
  • Give you input, straight feedback, and operate as a sounding board. 
  • Listen carefully to what you say and ask questions to provoke awareness.
  • Be a resource for you to use in accomplishing your goals.

Your responsibility as the client is to:

  • Cultivate a core honesty with yourself.
  • Commit yourself to goals that are truly meaningful and significant to you. 
  • Experiment with new approaches and practice new behaviors. 
  • Provide ongoing feedback on whether the coaching is valuable and meeting your needs. 
  • Be open to hearing feedback and letting your coach know whether it fits. 
  • Take ownership for your progress and accomplishments.
