Content is customized to address your specific leadership aspirations.
Face-to-face and on-line meetings are used for developmental exercises, coaching assignments, and to discuss readings.
You will create personal and/or work-related action plans.
Expect improvements in 4-6 sessions.
Progress is determined by your commitment to the process.
Build a supportive community of curious colleagues by referring 3 people that I can contact about a Strategic Curiosity® coaching or consulting engagement. In return, you will receive a complimentary coaching session.
What do you do differently as a result of Strategic Curiosity® coaching?
I noticed that it’s easier to detach emotionally to voice disagreements and when speaking the truth. When I see examples of what we’ve talked about, it clicks!
What new capabilities have you acquired? What do you do now that you didn’t do before?
I listen more. I pause and think about things more broadly more. If I’m presented a problem and I have the time in my office to reflect on it, then I can do it. If I’m presented a problem with a group and we’re working on it as a team, I reflect more before going into a meeting before I work with them. And I think more about the questions that I ask .
How has Strategic Curiosity® helped you grow professionally?
The nature of what I do -- I can consume a lot of details. I think I would process them too quickly. So,...[our process] or thinking about it very specifically forces you to pay attention to details that I might have overlooked that might take some more time. I don’t know if I missed details but I might have missed the meaning of the details.
How have changes in your leadership impacted your team?
Different ideas have come from the team than what I would have proposed. They’re thinking about it. The staff is thinking more. I don’t have to do as much.
