Leadership Development Coaching

The Value

At the Iris Group, we believe that excellent leadership does more than achieve organizational goals. It achieves them in a ways that inspires, includes, and innovates. We believe that one-on-one coaching is the most time-efficient approach to developing strong leaders because the experience is completely customized to the coachees unique personality, skills and context. By investing in your leaders, you have the opportunity to improve leadership effectiveness, avoid unhealthy conflict and reduce turnover.

The Approach

At the Iris Group, we recognize the wide range of skills that are required of leaders, particularly during times of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA). We work with leaders at all levels of an organization which means that Iris Group coaches are flexible and agile. We take a strengths based approach without ignoring weaknesses, and we integrate the organization’s context into the engagement.
