Equipping Leaders Within to Retain Top Talent
The work of Marshall Goldsmith has earned him the recognition as the world’s top executive leadership coach and a global thought leader in the field of leadership development. We are dedicated to helping our Human Resource Partners to gain a similar reputation within their own organizations.
Developed by Marshall Goldsmith, Stakeholder Centered Coaching® has, with the help of Frank Wagner and Chris Coffey, worked for over two decades with thousands of leaders to improve their leadership behavior by utilizing their stakeholders to work with them in the rhythm of everyday work.
In the corporate world where success in talent development and retention is key to future success, the Human Resource function plays a critical role. As a Human Resource professional, you desire to equip your leaders with the necessary skills to lead in a future that will undoubtedly bring challenge and change.
In order to be a strategic and effective HR professional, as you transition into the future, you cannot:
- Focus solely on training and ignore the “knowing versus doing” gap
- Spend large dollar amounts on external coaches to serve this development need
- Fail to develop the internal resources to transition needed knowledge into skill
As Co-Founders of Stakeholder Centered Coaching we (Marshall Goldsmith, Frank Wagner & Chris Coffey), grew up in the leadership training & development field providing highly rated leadership training to Fortune 100 Companies. Yet, looking back, we recognize that what we were providing was only the first step in making an impact in leader behavior. Learning is an important first step. The second step is to transition what is learned into disciplined action. Marshall Goldsmith has described this need in the following way: “There is no evidence the world is a better place because of what we know. The world is a better place because of what we do.”
