HIgh Potentials

Executive Coaching for High Potentials is an accelerated development program for middle managers who need to get ready for the next-level challenge quickly and efficiently


  • Fast-growing and fast-changing organizations often require leaders to make large changes in the scope of their roles, and they need to develop quickly and learn on the fly
  • Organizations with many long-term employees are facing a tidal wave of retiring “Baby Boomers,” leaving huge gaps in the organization chart that need to be filled in a hurry
  • Fast-paced organizations don’t always have time to provide close support, one-on-one coaching or mentoring for their up-and-coming managers

You Need Executive Coaching for High Potentials When

  • You have important, high-visibility or high-risk leadership roles that need to be filled quickly by managers who are proficient but not fully ready at the time of promotion
  • Your organization is moving in a new direction, breaking new ground, performing new operations that require leaders to learn and adapt with unique dexterity
  • You have leaders who work in a matrix organization with multiple “dotted-line” relationships but little direct support for their development

You Get

  • An initial consultation to confirm the choice of development options and an introductory meeting with the client to judge interpersonal fit
  • A comprehensive assessment phase, including an Individual Executive Assessment (i.e., interviews with superiors and stakeholders, 360-degree feedback, and online leadership profiles), joint analysis to determine the focus of the coaching, and initial feedback coaching during the data assimilation
  • A three-, six- or 12-month coaching phase, including bi-monthly one-hour coaching sessions by phone, Skype or in person that provide select leadership principles, targeted resources, learning assignments, role playing exercises, and organizational consulting

So That

  • Your fast-tracked executives are made successful in spite of any dramatic changes in scope or role
  • Leaders being sent into unknown territory or doing unfamiliar tasks get the support they need to adapt, overcome and succeed in their new – sometimes-unprecedented – roles
  • Politically complex roles are made clearer, the leader learns coping skills, and the high-potential manager learns how to balance multiple responsibilities with multiple bosses, peers and other stakeholders
