Leadership Coaching

Slade & Associates provides leadership coaching for established leaders, emerging leaders and high potential individual contributors. Our coaching creates long term effectiveness for you and your organization by increasing your ability to achieve results and build healthy relationships. We help you stretch into your best self as a leader.

We assume that you are the expert on your own leadership. You define success and drive the focus of the coaching conversation. Our role as your coach is to draw out your leadership expertise through inquiry, curiosity and gentle challenges.

Leadership coaching increases your effectiveness by:

  • Helping you target key behaviors to continue, do more, do less, start and stop doing to increase leadership effectiveness.
  • Involving your direct reports, peers, managers and customers as appropriate in the process of increasing your effectiveness.

Together, we can measure your improvement with ongoing feedback on your targeted leadership behaviors.

Types of Leadership Coaching

Coaching for achievement maximizes your performance in your current role. The leader wants to move from good to great. Your Slade & Associates leadership coach will help you focus on the behaviors and thinking necessary to supercharge performance. Typically, the client has been in their role long enough to have learned the ropes (6 months or more).

Coaching in transition helps you adjust to a new role so you can have a fast start. Your Slade & Associates coach will help you focus on making sense of your new role (learning the ropes).

Rapid sense-making will help you adjust your behavior, thinking and expectations to accelerate maximum performance in your new role. Transition coaching may start before, during, or soon after the leader has moved into a new role.

Coaching in crisis is designed to turn around an unsuccessful situation. The leader’s performance is unacceptable in one or more ways, and the leader and the organization want to improve the situation. Successful crisis coaching requires the leader, HR and the leader’s manager to agree to have mutual candor, commitment to change and the expectation that things can improve.



What Our Clients Say…

I had the opportunity to have Dr. Allen Slade as a mentor and professional coach while attending the College of William and Mary. Dr. Slade's coaching sessions were invaluable to my personal and professional journey while at William and Mary. Dr. Slade is thoughtful, intelligent, and able to provide insight and guidance for nearly every situation. Our sessions were one on one and I always left feeling peaceful and re-invigorated about whatever situation was going on in my life. Dr. Slade provided coaching to me on my professional career path, conflict resolution, ways to work effectively in a team, and more. I would highly recommend Dr. Slade for any of your coaching needs.
