EXECUTIVE COACHING

A key part of Logos Consulting Group’s client work is conducted via the Logos Institute for Crisis Management & Executive Leadership.

 

“Logos helps leaders to engage the people who matter to them when it matters most,”

– Helio Fred Garcia

At the Logos Institute for Crisis Management and Executive Leadership, we empower leaders through our executive coaching practice to take their leadership to the next level.

From managing a crisis to launching a product, from leading employees to speaking with reporters, leadership itself requires the same rigor as other parts of business. But, too often, when the time comes to engage stakeholders in pursuit of that success, leaders abandon that rigor. To engage stakeholders effectively, leaders need clear goals, a clear understanding of the people who matter, and the discipline and tools to engage their stakeholders effectively.

We have coached more than 400 CEOs and thousands of other senior executives in large corporations representing a variety of complex fields. We have helped leaders in industries as diverse as pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, technology, financial services, religious organizations, and not-for-profit advocacy groups.

Our executive education programs include classroom-style sessions ranging in size from 5 to 500, as well as team-building exercises and simulations on a variety of modules. We employ the most dynamic instructional methods, combined with the latest research from our idea laboratory, to provide a core grounding in best practices.

We also privately coach leaders on how to manage relationships with their boards of directors and other critical stakeholders, and how to communicate more effectively with multiple audiences. Our coaching is driven by the individual needs of the client, and can include ways to manage relationships with superiors, peers, and subordinates; succession skills development; and assessment of colleagues’ aptitudes and abilities.

We also coach executives identified as high potential, but whose presence or interpersonal style doesn’t position them well for a top spot. We work closely with such executives to help them build self-awareness, understand how they’re perceived, and re-calibrate their style to prepare them for the next level of leadership.

Our clients tell us that the Logos way of coaching and teaching is intellectually stimulating, emotionally resonant, immediately applicable, and foundational – allowing them to continue learning and applying our lessons long after the sessions end.
