Boldly Quiet Strengths Coaching
You know you have what it takes to be successful in your current role or even the next role you would like to pursue. But perhaps you are struggling to make others see your potential. Boldly Quiet Strengths Coaching is a program designed to help you more fully understand your unique, innate talents and begin to reframe your professional story through the lens of strengths.
If you enroll in the Boldly Quiet Strengths Coaching program, you will receive Gallup’s CliftonStrengths® full assessment and three 1-hour coaching sessions which can be conducted at your convenience (including evenings or weekends) via telephone, videoconference or in person, depending on your location and what works best for you.
Boldly Quiet Mentor
Perhaps you were just promoted into a new leadership role and are struggling to build your team. Or perhaps you want to raise your visibility with your boss and peers and need a sounding board. How can you more effectively prepare for a 1:1 with your boss or for a presentation to the leadership team?
The Boldly Quiet Mentor Program provides up to five hours per month guidance and feedback, tying in strengths coaching and leadership mentoring, to help you achieve your performance goals, raise team engagement, and be a valued member of the leadership team.
Leaders who enroll in the Boldly Quiet Mentor Program can strategically use their five hours per month before or after key meetings, or to wrestle through specific issues. These mentoring hours can be conducted at your convenience (including evenings or weekends) via telephone, video conference or in person.
Emerging Leaders Program
Do you have a cohort of high-performers recently promoted into leadership roles? The Boldly Quiet Emerging Leader program is a combination of 1:1 coaching and group workshops that tackle topics new leaders must quickly grasp in order to be effective in their new roles, such as:
What is leadership and how do I use my innate talents to be successful in my role?
How do I interact with my boss and my peers differently as a leader?
How do I build a high-performing team with a trusting and collaborative culture?
This program is highly customizable based on the specific needs of your corporation and is not limited to only introverts. However, the theme of appreciating the various aspects of diversity is woven throughout the program.
Real feedback can be harder to come by the higher a leader is in the organization, and this can be even more so for introverted executives, who may not be perceived as approachable. Yet this feedback is critical for executives who are committed to continuing to grow as leaders.
This executive coaching program is strengths-based, utilizing Gallup’s CliftonStrengths® assessment and includes interviews with 15-20 constituents (Board/senior executives, peers, direct and indirect reports, strategic partners, customers). The program will generally last 9-12 months and include at least six coaching sessions after delivery of a comprehensive feedback report.
Leadership Transition Program
A leader taking over a new team can easily become overwhelmed, feeling pressure to quickly build a high-performing team while, at the same time, trying to learn the team’s key processes and maintain—if not improve– team performance. For introverted leaders, quickly building trusting relationships with their new team can sometimes be daunting.
The Boldly Quiet Leadership Transition Program takes a unique approach to accelerating trust between the newly appointed team leader and team members, through 1:1 coaching and a full-day team workshop focused on understanding and appreciating each other’s strengths, and learning how to maximize team strengths.
This program is highly customizable based on the specific needs of your corporation and is not limited to only introverts. However, the theme of appreciating the various aspects of diversity is woven throughout the program. The program is also not limited to first-time leaders.
In today’s complex business environment, transformational change is now a common occurrence. How an executive leads during times of change directly influences the success of the change initiative. Introverted executives under stress can often withdraw at the very time the organization needs them to be visible, potentially putting change initiatives at risk.
Navigators help a captain plan a journey and avoid hazards along the way. In the same way, the Boldly Quiet Navigator helps introverted executives embrace and lead through VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity) in ways that bolster employee morale, inspire confidence, and create sustainable change.
This program is highly customizable and can include on-site shadowing, focus group interviews, collaboration with Human Resources and change management leaders, and individual coaching.
