Leadership Advice and Coaching


Leadership advisory support and coaching involves one-on-one confidential conversations between the leader and Rob where his role is to inspire and enable the leader to achieve personal, leadership and business goals. He helps leaders to clarify their vision, define what they want to achieve, strategize actions and execute action.  This advisory support and coaching also supports executives taking on new leadership positions (See Taking on the New Executive Position), getting control of their time (see Getting Control of Your Time Part 1 and Getting Control of Your Time Part 2 and reducing stress. (see Keeping Executive Stress at Bay)

We live in a volatile environment where the impact of traditional organizational solutions and models is constantly being eroded by the dramatic pace of change. To thrive, leaders need to excel at strategic thinking and move with increased agility that will enable them to rapidly adjust to changing conditions.

Leaders who engage executive advisors and coaches recognize that what got them to where they are today won’t get them to where they want to go. They know they must get better. They are open to change, willing to stretch for higher performance and they are just more positive and fun to be around.

Coaching accelerates your performance and motivates you to new levels of achievement. In an advisory/coaching arrangement with me you can expect a series of scheduled one-on-one confidential conversations between us with the option to contact me at any time between scheduled calls to discuss pressing issues. I will help you clarify your vision, define what you want to achieve, strategize options and execute action. The duration of the coaching arrangement is up to you, however, a minimum of six months is recommended. Our conversations occur in-person, on Skype or by phone.

1. 360 Leadership Assessment

The purpose of Rob’s qualitative leadership assessment is to identify priority opportunities for the leader to enhance individual performance and is an important foundation for the establishment of advisory and coaching goals.  Leaders also complete a Leadership Priorities Checklist to identify areas of priority focus.

2. 360 Leadership Assessment

This one-day workshop substantially increases leadership and organizational performance. It engages leaders from front line supervisors to executives in a dialogue on the four foundational elements that need to be in place if they are going to get the performance they want: clearly defined expectations, sufficient capability, a supportive culture and a positive motivational environment. The key message is that if people are not delivering what is needed or expected then the leader needs to ‘look in the mirror’ to recognize how they are personally responsible for their people’s success.

The benefits of the workshop are:

  1. Leaders will identify what needs to change if they are going to enhance accountability and performance in their organization
  2. Leaders will understand the key elements of an accountability culture and what they need to do to shift culture.
  3. Leaders will assess the accountability culture in their organization and identify priorities for change.
  4. Leaders will be more effective at defining and communicating expectations for change.
  5. Leaders will recognize that the responsibility for change rests with them.
