Leadership Breakthrough offers comprehensive programs designed to meet the unique challenges of the individual. Leadership coaching builds your competitive advantage in people talent development. As the aging and seasoned workforce begins to leave the executive ranks, there is a noticeable gap in talent readiness. What is your plan to address it?

Newly minted leaders are promoted rapidly and face significant challenges in managing new relationships, broader scopes and rapidly changing business landscapes in a world-wide economy. It makes business sense to invest in leadership coaching for your talent because they are your future leaders and your business will depend on them being successful.


Our company sponsored coaching engagements fall into three categories: High Potential Coaching, Leadership Coaching and our newest program – Cohort Leadership Coaching.

The High Potential Development Coaching program is for emerging leaders who have been identified early in their career. The high potential employee may have been recruited from a university into a formal rotational program or has been identified during the succession planning process as someone to develop quickly for increasing levels of responsibility.

The Leadership Coaching program is designed for leaders in Manager and Director roles who are new leaders or have taken on significant responsibility. These new leaders are in the final testing ground before entering the executive ranks.

The Cohort Leadership Coaching program creates an experience for 3-6 new leaders within an organization to work individually and collectively with a leadership coach by phone and in-person. Additional benefits from this program include deepening of peer relationships and specific group based outcomes generated by the sponsoring leader.
