"How will you know whether your coaching is effective?”

Good question.  A good way to answer this would be to look at our results. 70% of the leaders coached by Maya were promoted during the coaching engagement or soon after the coaching was completed.
This is precisely why the Stakeholder-Centered Coaching by Marshall Goldsmith is unique from other coaching methodologies.
We measure the coaching results, both quantitatively and qualitatively on a regular basis. Coachees are evaluated by the stakeholders who work closely with them day in and day out, so the feedback is objective, timely, and brutally honest.  It holds the leaders accountable for their actions, and engages stakeholders throughout the development process.

    “Developing people is a critical component of managing teams, yet a very tricky task when faced with myriad cultural differences among team members. Rarely does a one-size-fits-all approach work for everyone in the team. Maya’s experience and level of engagement in this topic was inspirational to our people, and Maya challenged them to think critically about their own leadership style and how to adapt it to achieve results. She is approachable and funny, and has a knack for making different personalities all feel comfortable in the class, which results in meaningful discussion throughout the day. We are looking forward to future sessions with Maya.”
