The Executive Coaching Process

1. Chemistry Check

Leader and coach assess their “fit” and explore program goals. Leader completes a Professional Development Profile.

2. Discovery Process

The research and assessment phase includes interviews between coach and key stakeholders, 360° feedback survey (for broader input), and relevant self-assessment inventories (to measure strengths, derailers, personality, and leadership behaviors). If applicable, the leader will also be observed in live work situations or presentations.

3. Feedback Meeting

An integrated review of discovery information is shared with the leader, establishing the foundation of a developmental action plan.

4. Action Planning

A comprehensive action plan is created, focusing on three to five targeted goals, key action steps, and metrics to measure progress.

5. Alignment Meeting

A transparent, three-way meeting is held between coach, leader, and leader’s manager to discuss assessment results and obtain support for the action plan.

6. Ongoing Coaching

A series of highly practical and applied coaching meetings are held, approximately four weeks apart, to build competence and work through challenges.

7. Realignment Meeting

The engagement is concluded with the leader and leader’s manager. Progress is measured and a long-range plan for ongoing development is discussed.

Executive Coaching Options

Enhancing Leadership

Targeted Skills Coaching


Despite all of their achievements, high-potential leaders often have room to improve specific leadership skills that can enhance their overall performance. Targeted Skills Coaching can help leaders develop specific skills required for organizational success.

Key Areas

Examples of targeted skills include communication, strategic vision, developing talent in others, or managing change. By addressing specific leadership issues such as this, managers become far more effective in their roles and better equipped to drive results.

Transition Coaching


New leaders need to start off on the right foot.

For executives making a critical turn in their leadership experience, Transition Coaching can help them achieve rapid business results.

Key Areas

Transitioning to a new job level is a critical opportunity for leaders to assess the realities and priorities of their new role, establish credibility, and drive demonstrable business results. Rather than leaving a new leader’s success to chance, invest in this vital make-or-break time to get a new leader up to speed quickly and accelerate their impact on the business.

Even when they appear to have what it takes to propel their organizations to greater results, a variety of complex leadership challenges can get in the way to achieving ultimate success.

Key Areas

High Performance Coaching can help leaders gain enhanced self-awareness about their impact, become more attuned to organizational needs, understand their strengths and areas for development, create a clear and effective action plan, and drive better business results. The outcome is an obvious business win for all.

It’s not just a single book, study, or assessment…the whole package provides results that are, and will continue to be, life changing.”

Lisa PerfettoDirector, Quality Assurance and Operations Support at Independence Blue Cross

“Stefani is an awesome executive coach, I highly recommend her. I recently had the privilege of getting to know her through an individualized leadership development program that my company sponsored. It can often be difficult to analyze oneself and share core thoughts and behavioral motivations with others; Stefani employs a coaching style that is comfortable to engage with, while also being instructive and intellectually challenging. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her over the past 6 months and found her observations to be insightful and valuable to me on many levels.”
