Coaching for CEOs & Leadership Teams Seeking Real Change
You know that change needs to happen within your business or organization but you’re feeling overwhelmed and not sure how to make it happen.
Perhaps you’re spinning your wheels, just trying to keep your head above water with today’s ever-dynamic business environment, and the uncertainty of what’s next.
It may feel like you’re spending all of your time putting out fires and dealing with issues that go back to communication breakdowns, rather than focusing on leading and developing your business or organization towards a greater mission.
Please know that you’re not alone.
If this sounds like your life as a CEO or other group leader, you’ve come to the right place.
Leslie Jones is a master executive coach who helps committed CEOs and other leaders who want to continuously improve with dramatic movement towards your end goal of productivity, happiness or success, however you’ve defined it.
We both know the draining impacts of feeling stuck leading a toxic environment that’s infiltrated by gossip, complaints and distrust.
You may have already tried to implement change within your team but the results weren’t dramatic or long-term. They didn’t stick.
Despite your best intentions you’ve found them slipping back into old, unhealthy habits and you just can’t understand why.
Want to know what’s missing?
An outside perspective.
As a CEO or member of a leadership team you’re looking to expand potential with higher levels of productivity, happiness, and success.
You’re desiring real change in your business or organization that not only drives financial outcomes, but also develops a strong culture within your business or organization that focuses on leading from the heart.
Most importantly, you are seeking a balanced, holistic approach to life and business.
“You just earned your total fee for the month in 15 minutes of conversation. Our discussion today resolved a very difficult situation with one of my employees and my plans for my ‘big event’. Sometimes I am way too close to a situation to find an answer and it became so clear to me after our discussion today. You probably saved me an employee and who knows how much money in poor performance and/or replacement costs.”
~ Tom Schmitt CFO, a Comcast Company

Our CEO and Leadership Coaching Method is Based on Four Steps:
While there are four steps involved in the CEO and leadership coaching method, not all four happen in a linear fashion, and not all are needed for every situation. The approach will be based on your personal needs and goals
Discovery & Assessment:
In the discovery and assessment stage we’ll explore benchmarks for success with your team. What’s working? What’s not working? We’ll identify new patterns of communication which will greatly help success. We’ll also explore the team from an outside view. What have you been missing?
Vision & Planning:
In the vision and planning stage we’ll get input straight from the mouths of your team with personal discussions. This is not a top-down approach, but one that gets feedback straight from those in the trenches. The planning that happens then will come from a coaching perspective, from the team and you, as the CEO or leader.
In the buy-in stage you’ll learn how to facilitate meetings that are designed to create new understandings, possible solutions and commitments to be made.
In the sustainability stage we’ll decide on the structures to sustain work, create and keep agreements. You’ll be encouraged to test various structures to learn which works best for your organization.
“The year I hired Leslie, I generated a 54 percent increase in total revenue; it was one of my best years ever. My goal for next year is a quantum leap - a 100 percent increase - so I have hired Leslie again this year!”

Within our one-to-one CEO and leadership coaching sessions we’ll focus on the following four factors.
We’ll focus on priorities and projects that most contribute to success in a 6 - 12 month period and letting go or postponing others for a later date.
Rebuilding Trust ;
You’ll learn how to create safe conditions for making, keeping and updating agreements between individuals and parts of the organization. Ultimately, as the CEO or leader you will be encouraged to model trust-building behaviors.
You’ll learn how to open up your organization with robust communications that will foster collaboration, inclusiveness, faster pace and overall happiness. You’ll learn how to cultivate conversations that are more complete and direct, while the fear of being wrong is reduced.
You’ll learn how to improve processes and structural components to get work done efficiently, productively, and at sustainable higher levels of performance.
Openness to the leadership coaching process is a critical success factor.
When we work together you’ll see that significant effort is put into the people and relationship side of your business, and the same will be true in our relationship together.
You will achieve your target results when you communicate in advance, co-create a work plan, truly ask for what you need or want, and show up in honesty, trust and vulnerability.
All you need to do is show up, be willing to trust and implement the guidance you’re given, and be open to practice and experiment. Once you do, you’ll start to see results right away.
