Marshall Goldsmith’s Stakeholder Center Coaching takes leaders from learning what to do to stopping behaviors that are making them fail!

Coaching in the New World

Leadership is a commitment to constructive behavior. Marshall Goldsmith’s Stakeholder Centered Coaching provides guaranteed and measurable leadership growth by enabling successful leaders to lead and behave more effectively through positive behavior change that is sustained, recognized and acknowledged by others.

At Golden Professional Coaching, we work from the outside in. We identify behaviors that need changing and work with executives to think, feel, and behave differently. We work with the individual’s value system to ensure the change is long-lasting.

Leaders often fall into one bucket. Either they are so self-confident that they already believe they are successful, or they decide they are choosing to succeed or they have a strong attitude that they will succeed. A successful coach meets the individual where they are and helps them overcome the arrogance associated with their current attitude. For example, if an executive says I am already successful, he or she may consistently overrate his/her performance as compared to their peers. They may have difficulty accepting feedback or have opinions that are inconsistent with their image of success.

Peter Drucker once said, “50% of leaders I have met don’t need to learn what to do. They need to learn what to stop doing.”

As leaders, we spend a lot of time teaching others what to do, but virtually no time teaching leaders what to stop doing. The greatest challenge for new leaders is giving up their old familiar tasks and delegating them to someone new for fear the new person will not do the task the same way they did. Even worse, the new person may do it better!
