Foster Collaborative Leadership

We help managers uncover their specific role within the company and teach them how to foster collaborative and productive relationships at every level of their organization.

Why Coaching?

Rapid Learning & Application

Coaching provides one-on-one guidance for applying new knowledge to bring immediate benefit to their organization. Throughout our engagements, coachees learn new things, try them at work, observe and reflect on the outcomes, and adjust as needed.

Develop & Retain Productive People

Good managers have an impact far beyond their own efforts. Coaching helps managers communicate with, motivate, and enable the people that report to them. Organizations with good managers attract and retain great employees and are more likely to achieve their objectives.

Align Actions Across the Business

From CEO to front line supervisor, every manager plays a specific role in the success of the organization. Coaching helps managers understand their role and align their actions to the vision of senior leadership, department goals, and the actions of their team.

Expert & Personalized Support

Coaching sessions with an engineer-turned-psychologist give technical managers the chance to ask questions, process their role changes, understand their leadership strengths, and work through questions they aren't able to ask anywhere else.

"After the very first session I knew that leadership coaching with Dain would be career changing. Instead of trying to force me into some template, he has an amazing ability to quickly, and truly, understand me (my personality, my leadership style, and my goals) and to provide me with the tools and support to become the best leader I can be. Not only do I better understand how to lead my team while navigating the tricky corporate landscape, I feel like I better understand myself.”
