The Marshall Goldsmith Approach to Developmental and Performance Coaching was developed by Dr Marshall Goldsmith, a world renowned Executive Coach and Leadership Thinker, and enables successful leaders to achieve positive & measurable change in leadership behaviour as well as providing a system for continuous improvement for themselves and their teams.
This coaching program is unique as:
- It guarantees measurable results for executive leaders and the organisations they work for;
- The coaching program is a real time on the job process that is highly effective and time efficient.
The program is focused on behavioural change to enhance leadership effectiveness. As Marshall Goldsmith states, “the major challenge faced by executives today is not understanding the practice of leadership, it is practicing their understanding of leadership.”
Stakeholder Centered coaching focuses on measurable leadership growth. Prior to the commencement of coaching, a mixture of 360-degree assessment and behavioural interviews with key stakeholders (manager, subordinates, peers) are used to determine current performance and to identify areas for performance enhancement. From these outcomes 1-2 leadership growth areas are defined in conjunction with the leader’s manager.
Throughout the coaching process, we measure leadership growth every 3-4 months using the Leadership Growth Progress Review (LGPR mini-survey). This is a short survey to measure the stakeholders’ perception of the leadership growth in the predefined leadership growth areas. Marshall Goldsmith research shows that 95% of the leaders who consistently involved their stakeholders in the process measurably improved their leadership effectiveness.
