The Champion Leader Coaching Process™: Phases & Agreement


The Champion Leader Coaching Process™ provides customized one-on-one guidance for executives and managers who want to develop new skills and/or achieve new goals in their area of concern.


As a result of this coaching experience executives/managers will be able to:

  1. Experience a custom-designed process to meet their current, individual development needs and goals.
  2. Assess their strengths, competencies, personal leadership and communication styles, and Emotional Intelligence skills and behaviors.
  3. Receive anonymous feedback from people in their sphere of influence such as their immediate leader, top leader, board, peers, direct reports, key clients, and family members.
  4. Demonstrate positive outcomes toward achieving their specific goals.

The Champion Leader Coaching Process includes:

Phase One: Assessment

  1. The client experiences our on-line, comprehensive, validated leadership assessments that describe the client’s preferred leadership and communication styles, Emotional Intelligence, and competencies.
  2. A series of 5 to 6 perceptual interviews will be conducted to discover how the client’s leader or leaders, board, peers, direct reports and/or key clients perceive their leadership, communication style and effectiveness. An optional spouse feedback interview is also available.
  3. In on-site/virtual meetings, we debrief the information from the 360 interviews and assessments and create a customized development plan which clearly defines the client’s goals and expected outcomes.

Phase Two: Target Setting

Together we agree on 3 to 5 specific goals to be accomplished in the next six months that show specific growth and development in the areas identified

Phase Three: Implementation and Accountability

  1. Typically this phase entails a series of telephone, Zoom or face-to-face coaching sessions of 60-70 minutes each. Sessions are scheduled approximately every two weeks.
  2. Sessions are set to layer learning and practice new skills and/or behavior. Action Steps will be determined and acted upon to ensure the best results. The client has full accessibility to us during the entire coaching process for quick coaching issues.
  3. During the coaching process, all communication with the client is confidential. The client may determine that sharing information with certain selected others would be helpful.
  4. At the end of three months and six months the client is responsible for writing a learning summary based on the initial objectives, with a copy sent to us at Dr. Alan Zimmerman’s office.
