A firm’s growth depends on its leadership to be strong and effective. Lisa has worked with hundreds of executives who have outstanding technical skills, and have benefited from the insights and practical experiences that come from working with an executive coach. The following is one example.
Challenge: A partner in a large accounting firm was floundering because of the internal perception from his firm’s leadership. His technical prowess with clients was undisputed, but his job was actually in jeopardy based on their impression of his leadership in the firm.
Solution: The client went through our rigorous self-assessment process to establish a common base line of understanding. Lisa zeroed in on where his behavioral style worked against him and created practical solutions that were applied immediately on the job. In particular, she helped him change the way he presented himself and participated in partner meetings.
Outcome: The client demonstrated substantially better communication with the partner leadership team. The internal perception changed in a matter of months to the extent that his direct manager became his biggest champion. The client’s internal reputation changed so dramatically that he became the gold standard within his department.
