Get the Training From L.E.A.P.S. to Be a Coach!

Business coaching is defined as a process of engaging in meaningful communication with individuals in businesses, organizations, institutions or governments, with the goal of promoting success at all levels of the organization by affecting the actions of those individuals (World Association of Business Coaches, 2007). Inherently, this philosophy is engraved in the L.E.A. P.S. business coaching model. In this regard, the most successful approaches to business to business coaching incorporate significant consideration of relational dynamics between the triad of coach, coachee, and organization, and focus on the coaching relationship and its systemic interface with the business environment (Kahn, 2011).

Due to the sheer diversity of business enterprises which exist, we have chosen at L.E.A.P.S. to employ integrative strategies which are developed and structured based on each organization's empirical situational analysis. At L.E.A.P.S we employ what is known as "Coaching on the Axis" (Kahn, 2011, p.195). Dialogical communication is engaged in conjunction with an axial orientation with a view of identifying, differentiating and eventually developing both innate and emotional intelligence.
