150 of the Global 500:
The Engaged Leadership team were excellent thought partners when it came time to launch our very first coaching cohort program for senior leaders. The team is easy to work with, extremely collaborative, and always kept an open line of communication with us as we crossed major program milestones across our entire engagement with them. They have a very robust group of coaches and a unique approach to 360s that goes much deeper in gathering specific feedback than most other 360 assessment tools out there. I would highly recommend their services to any company thinking of launching a coaching program. By the end of our engagement, we had supported and developed our leaders, had insights into future development themes to focus on and had our leaders asking for more!
Our EngagedLeadership Coach is the best executive coach I've come across in my career. What makes him so uncommonly good is his extraordinary intuition, his ability to listen for what matters, and his down-to-earth, yet infectious personality. All of these aspects have allowed him to build fast trust with our people. In our company, he is well known as a confidante and trusted adviser to many people, at all levels, from executives to entry-level managers. No job is too big or small which speaks to his genuine interest in simply helping people to be their best wherever they are in their journey.
Our EngagedLeadership Coach is not only an inspiration but a phenomenal facilitator. She was able to connect with my team immediately, creating a comfortable, trusting environment for our offsite. Through the Leadership Series and Accelerating Performance, she has helped us become more aligned and we were able to develop a team focus. I look forward to working with her again!
My EngagedLeadership Coach was instrumental to my professional development as a leader. Traits that set her apart from other Coaches I've interacted with are: (a) high EQ and gauge of company and organizational culture (b) understanding of self-awareness and energy management (c) valuing cultural differences and adapting communication styles to both the coached employee and the organization. She was able to learn the leadership styles of my peers and upper management and crystalize how to effectively communicate with these stakeholders. In parallel, she invested time in understanding my team's needs a d work/communication styles, helping me in managing both up, down and laterally.
The workshop provided by Grace went really good to remind us of the fundamental of the value proposition not only by the well prepared contents but also exciting work experience and best practice. With her dynamism, her professionalism, her international experience and her impressive communication skills, she got the whole audience completely interested and motivated by the workshop. This workshop is definitely the one that marketing manager of our organization should have and I absolutely recommend Grace as the instructor.
I've been through several similar sessions on leadership effectiveness. Most assume you're a new manager, but this was different. It really focused on the small changes that ANYONE can make to be more effective. I was skeptical coming in, but I learned a lot I can put to use immediately.
SEED Beauty has been working with Engaged Leadership for several years now. They have partnered with us to create a leadership development program for our middle management team and work closely with our executive team. After interviewing several firms and experiencing how our EL Coach delivered, I can highly endorse EngagedLeadership. This team has become a trusted partner to help us tackle the most challenging talent development issues.
This session consisted of both training/education that was very insightful and valuable long- and short-term. But, more importantly, we leveraged that training the second day to agree to many team protocols and operational efficiencies that we willl start using immediately. It was very successful in that we will use much of what we learned immediately
Our EngagedLeadership Coach has been a dream. His coaching is direct and insightful, yet very empathetic. His insights into leading at the executive level were very valuable in supporting my transition into a new and challenging role. I can't imagine a better coaching combination for someone leading at a senior role.
Our Coach makes effective communication seem like a natural art form. He has the ability to communicate effectively in any situation whether it's friendly or confrontational. I have taken pages of notes trying to emulate our Coach's talent for communicating.
My EngagedLeadership Coach seems to have a natural gift to bring out the best in people. Our conversations are rich in content and deeply thought provoking. I have found myself growing in ways that I did not think possible. He has proven to be a trusted, respected, and insightful mentor for me in areas of personal growth and leadership development. I enthusiastically looked forward to our interactions & feel that I walk away from these conversations knowing myself more thoroughly and being prepared to lead more effectively. My Coach has achieved "speed dial" status on my trusted advisers list!
The best management training session I've ever taken part in. Thought provoking, but yet very practical and applicable at the same time.
One of the biggest challenges founders face in the race to build a tech startup is the leadership challenge involved with keeping up with hyper growth.
Oftentimes, as founders forget that the job is not only about the engineering, the product and growth strategies, but our own growth and development as leaders of the people side of the business. We need to communicate excellently, learn to better inspire of teams and proactively grow our talent.
EngagedLeadership have helped my co-founders and me to see the blind spots in our leadership and understand the threats in our behavior patterns. At the conclusion of our work, we all agreed we had also become better human beings as our self-awareness and skills grew.
I have no doubt that any leader, or person for that matter, would get great value in exploring this coaching work with EngagedLeadership’s’ Coaches. This impact is especially significant as you and your business are in a hyper growth phase.
Our Coach has worked with us over several years and they continue to exceed my expectations. He has worked effectively with all types of executives and helps bring out the best in them. He has a unique open style which makes people comfortable and gets them to really think hard on what they need to do to become better managers and leaders and, to a great extent better people. He's thoughtful and serious with a light touch when required. Most importantly, he cares and those he works with know it.
One of the biggest takeaways for me today was this statement, "People issues are not interruptions for me—people issues are my work."
I met my EngagedLeadership Coach shortly after I was promoted to the role of President at Kabam. In our first session, I was struck by his passion, energy, and enthusiasm; all of which is awe-inspiring and infectious. Over the next 12 months, our work together was transformative. I have gained a very clear understanding of my personal and professional strengths and weaknesses. I have access to a substantially expanded tool kit of battle tested leadership strategies and tactics. I also have expanded confidence in my ability to own and drive results to maximum scale. In short, I look back on my time with my coach and question why I didn't sign up to work with him sooner.
Cathy is a great coach. While she has very deep knowledge on leadership across various dimensions, her real strength is helping people find their own answers by guiding them through tailored and profound questions. Cathy asks questions about “who you are” and helps people find their own strengths to leverage. She emotionally connects and the coaching relationships sustain beyond the on-site process time. She has a deep understanding on cultural differences and she helps people understand how the leadership can be more effective across different cultural nuances. It has been my pleasure and honor to work with her and I am more than happy to work with her again on any critical leadership development needs.
Grace helped greatly our people to enhance their skills as a professional marketer. Our people enjoyed her class that is highly engaging and dynamic. I would highly recommend Grace to support your learning and development for your organization!
Zen and the art of management — Larry's coaching has left an indelible mark on my work. He listens, he cares, he provides deep and meaningful feedback, and concrete ways to "up your game." If you're the type of person who doesn't like to be challenged, Larry isn't for you. But, if you're the type of person who is intensely curious about honing leadership qualities that extend beyond the boardroom and your directly managed team, then Larry is your coach.
