Leadership Development & Coaching
Leadership development and coaching both require deep listening to those you come into contact with so it is no surprise that at ODL Business Partners, our leadership development journey begins by listening to you, our client.
The story of your journey and what has transpired that has brought you to this point in your career and life. We learn who you are and what is important to you – or in other words, we learn about your personal set of values and the goals you have set for yourself. We encourage you to see ‘the possibilities’.
Next we work with you to determine your current leadership style and we seek to understand what is working and what is not working.
Your consultant will review many of the various leadership styles and discuss each one with you. During your discussion we will highlight the positive and negative traits of each of those styles. It is not uncommon to create a hybrid leadership style by picking parts from several styles that match your personal value system.
Finally, we create a development program specifically for you, targeting your goals. The program is designed to meet you where you currently are and move your skills toward your goal. Your plan will be like having a college course designed specifically for you and you are the only student in the class! Together with you, we agree upon and create a timeline for the completion of your training. Incremental meetings are scheduled and you have the flexibility of meeting in person, via video conferencing, or by telephone.
Your consultant is always available to assist you as you practice your newly acquired leadership skills. We will celebrate your successes and hold your hand through any difficult transitions! You are not alone; we are always by your side. We stay with you as you become comfortable with your new leadership style.
