This offering means that leadership coaching is not just for the lucky few senior executives. It is now attainable for anyone who is committed to their own self development.

As executive coaches at the MIT Sloan School of Management, we have decades of leadership coaching experience all over the world and we have seen all shades of leadership. We have consolidated the essential lessons and guidance into this audio coaching program.

Over 6 months, 24 weekly audio episodes (each one 10-20 minutes in length) are automatically delivered to the user’s mobile device.
There is an intentionally specific sequence that follows a best practice for optimal growth and sustainable behavior changes.
In each episode we provide an explanation of why a particular skill is important for leadership effectiveness, very practical tips about how to develop that skill and stories about executives we have worked with who either excel or not at that skill.

Another unique feature of this coaching experience is that diversity awareness is woven into most episodes. Our belief is that diversity and inclusion are not separate from what it takes to be an effective leader. So, we constantly address all types of difference in the context of individual, team and relationship development. This makes the program particularly applicable if you have a DE&I plan.

a 6-month commitment to leadership coaching
Our exclusive executive leadership coaching program is designed to facilitate your learning about yourself, other people, and how you show up as a leader. This coaching is designed to maximize your impact as a leader, and covers all stages of leadership careers, whether you a first-time team leader or you are a newly-appointed CEO. The coaching is delivered by Nicki and/or Gavin. Nicki is the Head Coach, and Gavin is on the coaching faculty, at the MIT Leadership Center, part of the MIT Sloan School of Management.

The Leadership Coaching Experience Roadmap

Why This Is Different

First, we have found a way for you to benefit from our combined decades of experience for an affordable price.

Second, we have designed this experience with a few elements that you’d be hard pressed to find with other leadership coaching services.
Lightning bullet point

The starting point is to help you become more compassionate and humane as a leader. We know that the best leaders know themselves, understand others and make meaningful connections. The episodes are sequenced to help you gradually deepen your awareness and skills in these areas.

Lightning bullet point

In addition, you can see from the episode list above that we challenge you to explore aspects of yourself that don't receive enough attention in most organizations, such as surfacing the underlying biases that impact your leadership style, how you use and share your power, and how important it is to create really strong relationships.

Lightning bullet point

Finally, we have worked with scores of leaders and we share real stories of their ups and downs in each episode. Stories that we know you will relate to.
