Cutting edge, state-of-the-art training built to improve individuals – one at a time. This one on one program will take the learner to the next level.
The primary goal of the Executive Coaching program provided by 21st Century Leaders is the intrapersonal and interpersonal development and improvement of the person being coached. This program does not focus on strategic matters, such as budget, staffing, planning, incident command, but rather focuses on all things relative to the participant’s relationships – with themselves and with others.
Program components include
|Time||The program is delivered in 16 sessions over the period of one year. The activities and personal one-on -one interaction with the coach/facilitator initially occur at two week intervals during the first three months, then occur at three week intervals during the second three months and at four week intervals during the last six months.|
|Sessions and Structure||
The program will contain 16 sessions, which will each include assignments, feedback and a live video Skype session (1 hour) as well as a commitment to respond to email communications within 24 hours during each session. Each session will focus on a particular set of skill assignments and/or self-assessments using the Ellis Rational Emotive Behavior model.
There will be a total of two (2) EQi assessments completed twice during the coaching period – at the beginning and end of the coaching program;
|Emotional Intelligence||Emotional Intelligence is defined as…a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

The Albert Ellis Rational Emotive Behavior model will be used by the participant as a tool, to be processed at least once each session, to reflect on at least one outcome that was less than optimal during the session and provide an opportunity for the participant to change their response to the activating event that will cause the outcome to be more optimal in the future. This model is the de-facto change tool used in cognitive behavior change.

|Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits||
Over the past 25 years Covey’s 7 Habits have proven to be a set of constructs that enhance an individual’s personal growth from being dependent to independent to the ultimate goal of becoming interdependent. The constructs are as follows:
Independence or Self-Mastery
The First Three Habits surround moving from dependence to independence (i.e., self-mastery):
Take initiative in life by realizing that your decisions (and how they align with life’s principles) are the primary determining factor for effectiveness in your life. Take responsibility for your choices and the consequences that follow.
Self-discover and clarify your deeply important character values and life goals. Envision the ideal characteristics for each of your various roles and relationships in life. Create a mission statement.
Prioritize, plan, and execute your week’s tasks based on importance rather than urgency. Evaluate whether your efforts exemplify your desired character values, propel you toward goals, and enrich the roles and relationships that were elaborated in Habit 2.
Interdependence (Working with others)

|The Coach / Participant Relationship||The Participant
In the coaching relationship the participant sets the agenda.
You determine which areas of your business, career, or life and what projects or issues require clarity, direction and goal setting.
The Role of the Coach
As your coach, I will be your partner in this process. I will listen to you and help you focus when focus is needed, clarify when clarification will help the learning, and support you throughout the process.
The Coach-Participant Relationship
The coaching relationship is designed to help you uncover the power within you. Together we will set goals and I will encourage you in achieving these goals. And as you achieve your goals, the small ones as well as the large ones, I will celebrate your accomplishments with you.
