Coaching with Dr. Smith Gets Results
Here are just a few snapshots from client case studies:
New President, Turn Around
A newly-hired division President was brought into the organization to lead a major business turnaround. Coaching with Dr. Smith supported him when his leadership behavior and communication prevented him from making progress with the existing team. Through coaching, he was able to foster the leadership relationships and develop needed strategies to successfully turn the business around with only 8% attrition, thereby preserving the division.
Successful CEO Transition
Dr. Smith worked with the outgoing CEO of a large commercial real estate company and his successor transitioning into the CEO role. While holding strong technical skills, the successor's leadership skills were lacking. The coaching process with Dr. Smith began with tough 360-feedback and an ambitious development plan resulting in strong commitment by the successor. Success of the coaching initiative was measured by the strength of loyalty and trust conveyed and transferred to the successor, thus preserving the brand for the future of the organization, stronger now by the depth of leadership.
Maximizing Business Positioning During a Downturn
The President of a global manufacturing company began the coaching initiative with Dr. Smith for himself and his team during an economic downturn. By raising the levels of leadership with coaching in the executive team, the company was able to strategically shift the customer base, align the team with minimal siloing, and enter the upturn in the economic cycle with a maximized business position.
