STRATEGIC ADVISING – Virtual Executive Coaching, Small Group

Individual coaching sessions with EF instructors enable personalized growth, development, and application of the principles of Extreme Ownership to overcome leadership challenges.

Initial sessions are structured to quickly get the EF Instructor familiar with your company, organizational and positional friction, and areas of focus for leadership development.

In most engagements, EF utilizes a proprietary leadership assessment tool to identify areas of growth for individuals. The tool can be run as both a self-assessment and a 360-degree assessment. Results of the 360-degree survey provide objective insight into leaders’ hidden strengths, weaknesses, and blind spots. The output of the tool is used during strategic advising sessions to focus the conversations to help to increase a leader’s self-awareness, a key skill in the most effective leaders in combat and in business.
