Leader Development
Courageous leaders exist in every successful organization.
Our leadership coaching approach focuses on helping leaders improve their performance and the performance of their organizations too. 

Berlineaton provides Executive Coaching services to emerging and seasoned leaders who want to increase their leadership effectiveness, explore new ways of leading, and help their organizations achieve their goals.  Executive Coaching can take several forms including:  career coaching, performance coaching, new-assignment coaching, debrief and feedback coaching, presentation skills/communications coaching, team coaching and succession coaching.  

We coach senior leaders and executives in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, and use assessment tools including: Narrative and Online 360 Degree assessment instruments, the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), Myers Briggs Type Indicator, Lumina Spark, Hogan and Cevey Assessment systems.

Berlineaton is prequalified to work with the BC Public Service through its Executive Coaching Corporate Supply Arrangement.
Our coaches have between 10 to 20 years of experience working with the BC Public Service.  We are familiar with how government functions, how the political levels influence and direct the bureaucracy, and how the bureaucracy gets things done.  

Berlineaton's executive coaching practice aligns with the International Coach Federation’s philosophy and code of ethics.

We follow a six-step process for executive coaching engagements:

A good, trusting 'fit' between the coach, the leader, and the organization. 
A formal Coaching Agreement that specifies the terms of the relationship, including confidentiality.   
Assessment tools that are used to establish baseline information about the leader.  
The goals of the coaching engagement, including how to measure progress.
Progress towards goals through action-focussed coaching sessions that strengthen the leader's current and future leadership capacity.   
A co-developed, "next steps" plan that is a catalyst for the leader's long-term growth and development.

Will your organization exist five years from now?
Organizations that thrive excel in three areas: 

  • Direction: a clear, widely shared, and aspirational vision of the future and a compelling road map to get there.
  • Process: clear, effective and efficient steps that create meaningful outputs. Daily tasks and deliverables yield their best results when processes are clear and strong, and aligned with organizational objectives. Processes facilitate the alignment of action with direction.
