Stakeholder Centred Coaching
Helping successful founders to become even better leaders
Developed by renowned coach and author Marshall Goldsmith, stakeholder centred coaching specifically aims at more advanced and highly successful leaders. Their experience of continued success makes it harder to change behaviours when the situation, such as a step-up in leadership responsibility or fast expansion in scale and scope of the business, requires.
The proven method enlists a leader’s stakeholders such as direct reports, peers, board members and others who directly work with her. Among the unique features of stakeholder centred coaching is the ability to quantitatively measure progress through stakeholder surveys, which also accommodates success based compensation for the coach.
