Stakeholder Centered Coaching

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Coaching is gaining prominence as a key tool to help people grow and improve behavior and performance. In fact, many progressive companies are using coaching to replace the onerous performance management systems of the industrial era that no one loved and virtually did little to improve the performance of many. Our guest, Chris Coffey, is a leading leadership development expert who has made coaching a central part of his development efforts. He has leveraged the Marshall Goldsmith method and created a process that really does help good people become better. He has the facts, because his process measures the impact of coaching on behavior change. Join us as we talk with Chris on this powerful development tool that is taking over the corporate world.

Chris Coffey started his career teaching Situational Leadership for Paul Hersey at the Center of Leadership Studies in the early 1980s. He later worked with the consulting firm of Keilty, Goldsmith, Boone and did leadership training at IBM, Warner Lambert, Coke, McKinsey and Company, MetLife and GE.

For over 30 years, Chris has been in the leadership development world and has worked with and coached hundreds of key leaders and successful individuals – helping them develop the leadership to become even more effective. Chris’s coaching style is direct and well-defined around the Stakeholder Centered Coaching Process he co-developed with Frank Wagner and Marshall Goldsmith.

Chris has coached leaders in Fortune 100, 500, 1000 companies, as well as those in startups and non-profits. The common denominator for all the individuals with whom Chris has worked is that they are all successful, high-potential leaders whose organizations want to accelerate their development by having them work closely with a seasoned, dynamic, and effective executive coach.
