What To Expect
We strive to develop trusting, long-term relationships with each client we serve. While you may not know us yet, our hope is that the following will give you a sense of what you can expect when working with our team:
Transforming Leadership understands the importance of prompt and professional communication. We are committed to providing response times to emails, calls, texts or other at a speed that will help our clients make confident and efficient decisions.
Transforming Leadership is genuinely passionate about what we do and that passion is represented in our expertise, experience and care for our clients as individuals and professionals. Our offerings portfolio combines expertly crafted internal solutions such as our Intentional Leader-Manager Workshop, with world-class behavioral-based assessments, all purposed with helping clients achieve the outcomes they desire.
Transforming Leadership respects our clients time and we appreciate each moment we have with them to help foster personal and organizational growth. Regardless of the size of the engagement or whether we are serving a CxO or lower-level manager, we take pride in showing up on time, following up and following through on all commitments.
No one understands the subject matter of your business and the dynamics of your specific role as well as you do. Transforming Leadership understands that you already have numerous leadership attributes that are creating positive results for your company. When engaging with Transforming Leadership, we focus on empowering our clients, co-creating solutions and never making them feel inadequate. We look at ourselves as expert collaborators, tasked with unlocking our clients potential.
Transforming Leadership is committed to being a trustworthy partner with sensitive organizational, departmental and personal data. Some leadership development sessions require co-workers to rate one another on various scales to help identify leadership gaps. We understand that can sometimes cause momentary concern for those implementing the rating exercise. We take every measure to ensure ratings and evaluations of co-workers are handled with confidentiality and professionalism.
Partnering with Transforming Leadership has enabled us to appropriately measure leadership development at all levels. Micro-managers are now properly delegating and holding others accountable. Executive's are communicating more efficiently which has created more trusting relationships. Our engagement with Transforming Leadership has produced clear ROI's and I would recommend them to any organization that would like to help their people grow and thrive.
Transforming Leadership is a wise counsel who has an innate understanding of the art of corporate leadership—and has the sense of management ethics that few coaches fully possess. If you need someone to sift out the chaff of your organization to get to the wheat, they’re your guys.
Transforming Leadership does a great service for us on the training side, but they are also a valued partner that understands our business and, more importantly, our commitment to our people.
I had the pleasure of working with Transforming Leadership during a rapid growth phase of my company. Their leadership acumen and ability to read people and the situations around them was like a super-hero talent. They walked me though the process of how to effectively lead as an operator, CEO and ultimately, the face of the brand. Transforming Leadership's wisdom and friendship has made a lifetime impression on how I look at life and my future.
I have known and worked with Transforming Leadership for fifteen years. I was so impressed with their work with my previous company, where I served as COO, that when I transitioned to CEO of Ply Gem we contracted with them immediately.
With over a fifteen year relationship, the most important thing Transforming Leadership brings to our company is trust. Our team knows that they can trust everything Transforming Leadership says and does.
Transforming Leadership has served us in two critical capacities. First, they provided us with the insight to develop a much stronger and more effective team. And second, they helped me personally to identify growth areas in my communication with my team. We plan to continue to use Transforming Leadership at every opportunity.
We have found Transforming Leadership to be a valuable partner that we would recommend to anyone. It has been our experience that there is no partnership relation that we have that is as consistently applauded by our personnel as that with Transforming Leadership.
What makes Transforming Leadership different than other coaching or leadership development firms?
Four primary areas:

Tactical elements of strategy focus on “what” needs to be done and behavioral elements focus on “how” goals can be achieved through positive behavior change – we are behavior change experts.
