Executive Coaching and Consulting

Supporting the team at the top

As experienced business coaches and management consultants, we give senior leaders and their leadership teams practical, actionable insights to not only better themselves but also see positive bottom-line results in their business.

Executive Coaching

Before people can make progress, they have to understand what’s standing in their way. Based on assessments that give insight into the obstacles that are preventing individuals from performing at their peak, we provide proven, personalized coaching to address issues at their root and overcome them. Leaders gain the awareness, tools and techniques to change their mindset, leading to different choices, more effective actions, and positive outcomes.

Strategic Business Consulting

The best leaders understand when and where they can benefit from an outside perspective and specialized business knowledge and experience. We regularly consult with leaders peer-to-peer to help them develop, vet, expand or execute their business strategies and plans.

Search and Recruiting

Finding compatible candidates who are ready to contribute to a successful, unified team is vital to establishing and sustaining an effective corporate culture. Our combination of recruiting, business consulting, assessment and leadership development expertise makes us uniquely qualified to find the right candidate to move your organization forward. We have helped companies recruit, assess and hire senior-level talent in a variety of industries, including Education. Our clients find that our use of candidate assessments in the evaluation process greatly enhances their ability and confidence to select the right top leaders for their culture, business needs and goals.

Bottom-Line Perspectives

Value is both qualitative (what people believe they gain) and quantitative (proven by numbers and results). We take pride in delivering both types of value for our clients.

"‘Transformational’ is an obnoxiously overused buzzword, but this experience in Executive Coaching has been transformational. I think one of my biggest issues was just believing in my own ability to be in these positions. But I came away feeling more self-confident and assured, not only after I’d come out of the sessions, but also permanently, believing I’m capable and knowing that I will deal with whatever happens."

Financial Management Deputy Director, Definitive Logic

"We retained Lead Your Way for executive search services because they understood our company culture, how we operate, what our goals are, and they had all this insight about us. As a result, they were able to narrow the field to a few candidates to consider vs. dozens. Having that expert guidance on attracting people all the way through to making the offer took a lot of pressure off of us. It made it easier for us to continue to do business and know that it was being handled professionally and properly."

"I really believe that our most impact from Mike is coming out of our C-suite alignment groups. Getting the entire management team using the same common language, so when we talk about willing, able, committed and available, we can all sit down in a room and discuss things using the same words—it’s a big deal. That small group is really becoming invaluable to the success of the company."
