1:1 Executive Coaching

What does Executive Coaching offer? Executive coaching is for the gifted and talented. There is a synergistic and professional partnership between an executive coach and his or her client. The coach is independent, yet subjective, and is there to support the client to ensure success, balance and fulfillment.

Executive coaching helps clients set higher goals based on integrity and true values. The coach supports his or her client to develop language to fully articulate his truth, and to hold himself accountable by experimenting with taking action. This process accelerates growth.

Your Challenges: You know that empowered teams are innovative, but you're not sure how to empower all levels of your organization. You don't have a thorough succession plan - and you have emerging leaders who are ready to step up. You are a technical contributor who is now managing people. You are a founder whose business is scaling rapidly.

Our Solution: We can provide our certified executive coaches directly to you, for individuals within your organization, or create a customized coaching program for teams, business units, or the whole organization.

Authentic Leadership Presence

Not only did I learn to be a better speaker, I also became a better listener and a better friend.” - Shuo Zhang

Contact us to learn more about this online course: Jennifer@berkeleyeci.com

Leadership Presence is the skillset that enables a person to motivate, inspire, and connect to the thoughts and feelings of others.

It is not only for leaders, but for EVERYONE. In our interactions with people at work and at home, we take on different roles in different situations. When you are able to show up in those situations as your authentic self, communicate in a way that engages and connects with others, and align your intentions with others' perceptions, then you know you are bringing forth your Authentic Leadership Presence.

This online course, led by instructors and coaches from the Berkeley Executive Coaching Institute, takes you on a journey to develop your own Authentic Leadership Presence through instructor-led learning, live streamed lectures and videos, readings to provide inspirations and examples, self-reflection, on-the-job learning activities and shared feedback. Designed as an experiential journey, we encourage you to take this course with your colleagues and friends so you can learn more about each other along the way.
