Brad Humphrey and Pinnacle Development Group can help leaders improve their skills through 10 coaching sessions

Leader Talking To Crew Freedigitalphotos

This new coaching series by Pinnacle Development Group (PDG) is developed for the proven leaders who can still raise their leadership, who still seek to maximize their talent, skills and effectiveness.

The following 10 skill areas are presented for coaching sessions prepared for discussion and hands-on exercises:

Championship leading topics:

  1. Strategic Thinking and Planning
  2. Building Effective Teamwork
  3. Facilitation Skills to Lead Effective Meetings
  4. Professional Presentation Skills
  5. Business Development Skills for Non-B.D. Leaders
  6. Peer Relations that Win Respect
  7. Making Tough People Decisions
  8. Preparing For Your Next Role
  9. Professional Etiquette for a Positive Image
  10. The Art of Putting Others First

Each of the above topics is addressed in a coaching situation between a PDG Coach and the individual leader. Each session needs to be 1.5 to 2 hours in length. This provides time for discussing assignments completed by the leader, addressing questions or challenges shared by the leader, and for hands-on exercises, including role-playing and interactive “simulations” designed to reinforce the topic addressed.

To further support the long-term learning of this process, PDG will follow up with the leader by sending additional articles and recommended books, CDs, webinars and upcoming conferences that may be timely and applicable for the leader.

A detailed Leader’s Action Plan will be presented at the beginning of the coaching process, initially identifying areas needing greater attention. The leader receives a follow-up observation “Hi-Lo” brief, from the coach for each session completed. This brief provides observations made by the coach on how he views the session, improvements made and areas needing further attention.

Upon completion of the coaching process the leader, his or her senior leader, and the PDG coach meet to discuss progress made, areas needing further attention and a plan for further development as needed.

The ten topics addressed in this coaching series have been carefully selected for those in leadership facing more challenging situations. For a recently promoted leader, one who is entering the leadership ranks for the first time, it is recommended that PDG’s Presenting a Professional Image be implemented. It is critical that leaders establish a real base of leadership vision that they develop and other foundational issues critical to the new leader.
