Are you looking to be a better leader and wonder if coaching can help? Leadership coaching takes you from where you are to where you want to be, fundamentally assessing strengths and developing your potential. Curious? Is it for you? First session is complimentary.
It is through deep self-awareness and authenticity that we uncover our leadership talents. Leadership coaching helps you challenge yourself, setting and achieving your leadership goals. Changing leadership behaviour or examining and adjusting your leadership strategy are realistic results of leadership coaching. I work as a confidential thinking partner, holding a focus for you. You become the leader you want, learn better how to grow other leaders, as well as lead for results.

Do you want to improve your leadership skills? DP Leadership Associates will help you identify the skills you have through a leadership assessment process, determine the skills you have and want and work with you to determine your leadership growth and development strategy. Approaches include leadership feedback through structured interviews, 360, and various instruments.In addition we design and facilitate custom leadership development programs for teams and also cross-functionally within and between organizations.

My focus on leadership development touches team intervention and team development, policy and strategy development, program and course design, career services, facilitation of management retreats, execiutive legacy, and customized workshop design and delivery. I also use the
Tri-namics System, MBTI, and other assessments in my work.

Seeing your own organization clearly and objectively is challenging at best when you are immersed in urgent operational requirements. An external viewpoint provides new eyes and new ideas; helping you frame or reframe your talent management approaches; and can save you significant resources when your leadership and talent strategy frameworks work effectively. Contact DP Leadership for confidential consulting and a development or review of your talent management strategy.

Debbie has extensive experience writing curriculum, proposals, papers, articles, including a thesis. Do you need someone to write and research a report, article or proposal? Prepare a presentation? Debbie loves to research and find information on many topics. Ask her, if she is not able to help she will pass you on to someone who may.

Do you want to build a collaborative team? First we define collaboration for the team, then collaboratively work together to create something important, then we debrief the process. This helps us see ourselves well. We also work with new teams, executive teams, project teams, action learning teams, and other groups who are looking to raise the bar on their results and effectiveness.
Debbie's Masters Thesis was on Collaboration, where she explored the meaning and value of working collaboratively with a diverse group of people.

What are you doing about succession planning, how are you growing your next leaders? Both small and large companies need to address this. DP Leadership Associates customizes the approach based on your needs and draws on considerable experience creating and implementing a succession planning process in a mid-sized utility.

Organizations of any size have end to end processes that flow between various jobs. These processes over time often get covered up, lost or have bandaid solutions created so that they become inefficient. By using an approach of mapping the existing process, looking for opportunities and efficiencies, then creating a new process we can increase productivity improving communication and relatioships through this approach.
DP Leadership Associates can help you by facilitating this mapping process and working with your organization to create better, more effective processes.
