New Leader Coaching

The effect of a manager and direct report's relationships are vital to the success of a company. A recent Gallop study revealed that 50% of exiting employees cite a poor relationship with their manager as the cause. You are making your company's talent a top priority: savvy investors invest in teams before products, millennials want professional development and career pathing as part of their employee experience and your culture is built on the one to one and one to many connections being fostered by interpersonal communication every single day. 

Let's get real though. Who in your organization is focusing on strengthening your people potential? Books and courses might provide some of the basics, but where learning meets application is in the day to day. Give your company a real competitive advantage that no one can beat by fortifying your emerging leadership and management team with one-on-one coaching and watch as your KPIs really start to blossom.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Talent Collective coaching and a relationship with a manager?

Like a relationship with a manager, coaching may mimic a healthy one-on-one meeting, with, most often, some big differences. Firstly, in coaching, judgements and performance indicators are suspended, creating a safe space to flail or fail. Because your Talent Collective coach isn't measured based in any way on your performance, the relationship dynamic is one where you can share anything and everything. We will hold what you say in the strictest of confidences. Other differences often include where the focus is, and that is on you, the whole person, empowering you to solve the problem or perform the task at hand. When tough questions or explorations come up, we jump in, right with you. We'll ask you the hard questions and be with you as you explore what's getting in the way of being your best self at work. 

Is coaching something my organization will support?

Some companies have professional development budgets that can be accessed (and we'd encourage you to book a complimentary call with us to see how you could build your case for certified coaching). And some companies retain a coach for leadership teams, emerging leaders and individual contributors.

What can I expect from 30 minute complimentary call you are offering?

We like to think of this session as the first step in our relationship which starts with getting to know each other. You can expect questions about you and your career background, your goals and your struggles. And you can expect us to share more about coaching, how our programs work and who we are.You will have the option to do another complementary follow up session to experience coaching in action so you can decide if it’s the right fit for you and your career journey.
