What Happens in a Leadership Coaching Session?

Have you ever wondered what happens in a leadership coaching session? If so, check out this list.

After beginning work with a new client, I often spend a few months helping them understand how to best use my coaching support. There is a period of presenting options for deeper work together. Over time I’ve started capturing the various topics I’ve worked on with my clients in our coaching.

If you are a curious voyeur or tire-kicker here is a partial list of ways I’ve supported my clients:

  • Prepare you to give feedback to an employee or colleague by providing a specific format, prepping a script, and doing a practice run.

  • Review and provide comments on a pitch deck for potential investors.

  • Help you understand how intense experiences from your past impact how you are leading your company and creating your life and then work towards integrating them.

  • Prepare you to ask for a new title and/or a raise.

  • Overhaul your schedule to get more focused on the most important things.

  • Give personalized meditation and yoga practices for your unique body and mind.

  • Conduct interviews of your closest collaborators and give you actionable feedback about how you are perceived by those around you.

  • Provide support and structure to consciously end a relationship with a long-term life partner.

  • Help you envision and map out your ideal leadership team to help scale your business, then support you as you execute the hiring and onboarding plan.

  • Help you bring more passion and juice into their marriage.

  • Prepare you to compassionately fire an underperforming employee.

  • Help you let go of the burden of leadership in a way that honors your desire for ease and abundance.

  • Help process and make sense of losing a loved one.

  • Support women entrepreneurs as they navigate the mine-field of gender dynamics and sexism in their field.

  • Provide thought-partnership and skills on how to deal with assholes in your company.

  • Facilitate conversations and repair between feuding co-founders.

  • Craft a plan to deal with the cultural aftermath of sexual harassment in a company.

  • Receive and revise the structures used for meetings throughout the organization. Provide templates for 1:1 and team meetings.

  • Help create a culture that is safe and ready for a more diverse workforce.

  • Help you see blindspots in your leadership style that are limiting your effectiveness.

  • Help you to become more aware of how your emotions provide vitally important information for leading your company.

  • Helping you think about ways to vet potential investors, board members, and advisors.

  • Help you use the work of running a company as a path to self-awareness.
