It's about your relationship with your chosen stakeholders, and a simple way to support each other's growth. The coach is not an expert on you or your business. The coach is a humble facilitator to help you get rapid insights in a simple pragmatic way.

Most executives need practical on-the-job learning rather than more intellectual leadership training. Marshall Goldsmith's acclaimed Stakeholder Centered Coaching process quickly identifies tipping point behaviors and leverages a clear process enabling leadership growth to become embedded in day-to-day interactions on the job.


Executives are busy people, time is their most valuable resource. Investing in coaching only makes sense if there is a guaranteed return on that investment. Stakeholder Centered Coaching GUARANTEES results. Our coaching fees are subject to measurable leadership growth.


95% of the 11,000 business leaders who have been through our coaching process measurably improved in their leadership effectiveness.


Challenges typically facing HR concerning executive coaching include a lack of visibility and no clear ROI.

Contrasting with traditional closed-door coaching approaches, the transparency and clear process behind Stakeholder Centered Coaching means HR business partners have total visibility into what their leaders are working on whether they are improving. Combining this with our ‘No Growth, No Pay’ guarantee, all ambiguity and risk is removed from the equation.
