Personalized leadership coaching for a profound professional transformation
Sounding Board is changing leadership development with our tech-driven approach that delivers high-impact, 1:1 personalized development at all levels – from your frontline managers to your senior executives.
Best-in-class coaches and cutting edge technology deliver high-quality, high impact leadership development.
Sounding Board delivers valuable learning to the employee AND the company through our global network of leadership coaches and technology. We don’t just take any coach. Our coaches go through a vigorous 3-step vetting process, that includes a live coaching session to demonstrate their coaching skills. They are required to have the highest level of professional leadership coach certification, 10+ years of experience, background in organizational learning/psychology, and real-world leadership, operational expertise, and experience at companies like Genentech, Google and Lyft, to name a few.
The Sounding Board ROI is clear; measurable up-leveling of talent directly impacts business outcomes; helping to attract and retain exceptional leaders.
Unlike other companies that focus on bettering your “feelings” or providing personal “therapy”, Sounding Board leverages adult learning theory, neuropsychology and 25 years of frontline leadership expertise to deliver a professional transformation of thinking . Our Sound Coaching solutions generate more productive leadership and managerial behaviors that can immediately be applied to current work situations.
