Leadership Coaching

Realizing individual and team potential

Through coaching, targeted assessment and development, leaders become more adept at navigating transitions, increasing situational awareness, influencing others and making the shift from functional/technical to business leader.

As coaching practitioners, we are singularly skillful at developing leaders who are transitioning into positions of greater power and broader organizational scope.

  • GRL's coaching approach is results-focused and grounded in real business experience, catalyzing individuals and teams forward

  • Coaches bring decades of experience in business, guiding top executives toward increased confidence, self-awareness, and demonstrable organizational and strategic influence

  • Global expertise enables us to work across cultures and borders

  • Multi-disciplinary approach draws on applied anthropology, organizational psychology, leadership theory, mindfulness and deep industry expertise.

GRL coaches apply specific practices and actions to develop effective executive awareness, communications and strategy execution. Coaching engagements may take the form of one-on-one leadership coaching, group coaching focused on a specific set of development competencies and team coaching to address interpersonal and group dynamics such as trust, decision making, accountability and collaboration.
