Leadership Coaching & Development

For Companies Investing in their Future

Leadership Coaching | Leadership Development

Leadership coaching and leadership development benefits the leader and their employees. When you invest in a leader, their development and actions create a ripple effect throughout the organization.

  • Are your high performers ready for the next step your organization?
  • Would they benefit from a leadership coach? Perhaps someone they can confide in who would help them see things from a fresh perspective?

The stakes are high. High performers can get stuck too when they step in as a new leader. When emerging leaders or high potential employees work with a coach, their performance can improve dramatically.

When you pair your emerging leader with a coach quickly, together we work on growing capabilities. If time lapses without support, the focus can shift to filling performance gaps which stalls forward movement.

Through leadership coaching, Lynn supports emerging leaders in


Increasing Self-Awareness

The transition from being a technical leader to being people leader can be challenging. How someone shows up as a leader emanates from their own personal beliefs, strengths, and openness to explore and develop further.

Integrating Expanded Responsibilities

Promotions or expansion of roles for a manager or director can be overwhelming. Setting priorities, multi-tasking, focusing, learning a new system and developing new relationships can stall a leader’s advancement without clarity on how to balance demands.

Honing their Communication Style

How you communicate with others directly impacts how they communicate with you. Learning how to read non-verbals, change cadence, manage tone and ask questions without judgement or assumptions will affect other’s interactions with you.

Building Strong Relationships

The relationships an emerging leader cultivates in early and mid career will support them when they reach senior leadership. Stepping on their peers and subordinates along the way can torpedo their leadership trajectory. The healthy leader learns to manage up, down and sideways.

Defining their Leadership Style

Exploring who you are as a leader develops the platform for your future development and growth. Think about: are you a manager, leader or coach? Do you know how to use each role effectively? Are all roles important, if so when? How does your organization’s culture support or hinder your preferred style?

Translating Vision to Action

Many of the common challenges leaders face include: managing change, setting goals and holding people accountable. Personalities, unclear priorities, poor communication and other roadblocks impact a new leader’s ability to deliver results.

Leadership Breakthrough offers comprehensive programs designed to meet the unique challenges of the individual. Leadership coaching builds your competitive advantage in people talent development. As the aging and seasoned workforce begins to leave the executive ranks, there is a noticeable gap in talent readiness. What is your plan to address it?

Newly minted leaders are promoted rapidly and face significant challenges in managing new relationships, broader scopes and rapidly changing business landscapes in a world-wide economy. It makes business sense to invest in leadership coaching for your talent because they are your future leaders. Most of all, your business will depend on them being successful.


Our company sponsored leadership coaching engagements are for one year. It has been our experience that programs less than one year do not yield sufficient ROI.

The Leadership Coaching program is designed for leaders in Manager and Director roles who are new leaders or have taken on significant responsibility. These new leaders are in the final testing ground before entering the executive ranks. Seasoned leaders who are refining their skills will benefit from our Executive Coaching Programs.

If you are looking to combine leadership development (skills training) with leadership coaching, contact Lynn to learn more about our Leadership webinar series.
