Our tech-enabled, leadership coaching platform supports real-world business outcomes.
Sounding Board Coaches work directly with the employee and their manager to set company-centric leadership goals. Each individual builds a development plan based on feedback from relevant stakeholders, including their manager, HR, peers and team. Our 360° Feedback involves all stakeholders, is outcomes-oriented, and can incorporate your company’s leadership capabilities as part of the assessment.
Sounding Board coaches start with 180° or 360° feedback and a leadership capabilities assessment. Each individual builds goals and a development plan based on feedback from relevant stakeholders, including their manager, HR, peers and team. These plans are business focused and outcomes oriented. All progress is tracked on the dashboard for easy access to measurement of leadership outcomes, organizational insights and business impact.
We start with our internal algorithm that matches a dedicated coach to each individual (with a 97% success rate on the first try!)
Sounding Board only accepts the most seasoned and certified coaches with over 10 years of experience, and in most cases, real-world corporate leadership expertise. Our global reach spans 29 countries and 14 languages, providing consistent leadership development solutions across the globe. Each coach works directly with the individual to integrate organizational goals, and change behaviors that support the development of leadership soft skills that are most effectively learned on the job.
Sounding Board’s 180/360° Feedback, Goals, and Pulse Surveys align the individual development goals to the organizational needs. Through our integrated workflow and dashboard, the Sounding Board platform can be easily utilized to track individual level progress, gather ongoing feedback, and set and share goals. Our tools make it easy for leaders to connect with their coach, and for HR leaders to track overall leader growth, plus broader developmental insights.
Whether it’s employee churn, recruitment, attrition, retention or just promoting people without leadership experience to leadership positions because of fast growth, these issues can impact the bottom line. Because everyone needs a Sounding Board, our platform scales from individuals new to leadership positions, employee on-boarding, and the development of leadership and strategic skills from mid-level up to the C-level executives. Our leadership development philosophy, based on adult learning theory, neuropsychology research and 25 years of frontline leadership development, focuses on shifting thinking, mindsets and belief systems to reveal a wealth of new leadership and managerial behaviors. The coaching process of changing thinking and perspectives creates long-lasting behavioral leadership changes that don’t degrade under stress or pressure. Sounding Board enables each individual to develop the foundation for impactful growth and lasting success.
