The Sounding Board coaching methodology is scientifically-designed and based on six decades of validated and relevant research. To drive long term behavior and actions that result in up-leveling leadership mindsets and practices, our coaches develop the individual leader to have a greater organizational impact on business growth.
Every employee is matched to a dedicated coach for a specified engagement via an A.I. coach matching algorithm. The Leadership Roadmap, our scientifically designed, agile learning platform adjusts to the learning style of each participant for maximum results. Coachees create leadership goals; tracking the insights, actions, and results they are experiencing from their coaching sessions, related to the development of that goal.
We start by analyzing your corporate vision, values, culture, structure and more to gain a deep understanding of how a leadership development program can help meet your goals.
Next we help identify the right leaders for enrollment, aligning each individual to their ideal coach using a 6-point matching system based on cultural fit, functional area, management level, experience, social style and our proprietary matching algorithms.
We incorporate key learnings from our analytics model to create a continuous feedback loop that drives individual progress and corporate ROI.
Sounding Board delivers valuable learning to the employee AND the company through our global network of leadership coaches and technology. Our coaches go through a vigorous vetting process. Not only are they required to have real-world leadership expertise, but have the highest level of professional leadership coach certification.
Our expert coaches combine top notch coaching, business acumen and organizational savvy to truly become your leadership “Sounding Board”. Sounding Board coaches are all industry certified and strongly vetted going through a 3 step qualification process and receiving ongoing supervision and development.
