WHY WORK WITH US?

Coaching for Leaders

Through its action-oriented coaching process, Third Stream Leadership accelerates the development of leaders to be more achievement-oriented and relationship-focused.

Becoming a better leader entails gaining increased awareness of effective leadership competencies and unproductive tendencies or blind spots.

Our coaching process identifies specific strengths and blind spots, helping to focus the coaching effort on the development opportunities that will yield the most positive results.

Expanding Leadership Capacity and Effectiveness

The skills, talents, and motivations that have brought you to your current position in life are a key part of what has made you successful. But ironically, they may not help you achieve your next career milestone.

At times, it is important to expand your mindset to think differently about challenges, to reframe problems, and to understand and solve issues from a more holistic perspective. The executive who expands their insights and experience on complex issues is more likely to find solutions that work systemically.

At the same time, a leader’s effectiveness will also hinge on the development of the more tangible management skills required to implement systemic solutions, such as more effective prioritization, communication, and delegation.
