Individual and Cohort
Operating from a common base of experience and a shared philosophy on the drivers of human growth, our coaches bring a love for people, strong business acumen, practical insight, robust knowledge, and a strong commitment to the discipline of coaching (asking, not telling or selling) to every coaching relationship. Whether adjusting to a new role, breaking old habits, developing a top-performing team, or striving to become more strategic, decisive, or influential, coaching is the fastest way to accelerate your growth and close the gap between the current and desired reality.
The sooner you invest in human development (yours and others), the longer you reap the returns.
Coaching transforms frustration into achievement, helplessness into control, and stalling into success. Our pLink Executive Coaches help clients become more effective leaders – better versions of themselves, improved colleagues, stronger team builders, and creative problem-solvers.
Relationship – a human process to ensure a strong match between coach and client.
Credibility – our coaches maintain a PCC or higher level credential from the International Coaching Federation, have organizational backgrounds, are continuously trained in our bespoke methodology that fuses the science of positive psychology with the discipline of leadership, and perhaps most importantly, are employees and part of our pLink Leadership family.
Feedback – because leadership changes when context does, every coaching engagement begins with current feedback gathered with the 360 assessment, The Leadership Circle Profile.
Some people have had poor experiences with 360 assessments. This is not one of those experiences. The Leadership Circle Profile™ is an evidence-based assessment that “magnifies why leaders do what they do and how they can transform.” We love it because it is built on a solid evidence base, it highlights mindsets and behaviors, and, perhaps most importantly, it illustrates what a person can move towards rather than away from.
Realistic – 10 hours of coaching over 6 months in one-hour bi-weekly video sessions. Includes: defining outcomes for the coaching, the LCP and debrief, the creation of a feedback-informed Leadership Development plan, exploration of values and strengths, ongoing coaching, pulse surveys to track progress, and a final session to bring it all together. Most clients complete their first series within six months, with many opting to renew.
Coaching Impact Brief – we measure, and share back with each client, their progress across 20 metrics that impact leadership effectiveness and well-being.
Over time, I have delegated more than a quarter of my job, freeing up time to lead in powerful ways that have made the project and me qualitatively more successful. The coaching process made a real difference, not just in how empowered I feel, but in real outcomes.

Coaching the Cohort
While individual leaders can be highly effective with their own teams, that dynamic does not always translate to highly effective organizational leadership. This gap becomes one of the great frustrations of high performers.
We created our pLink Forge offering for collective leadership, to elevate a group of leaders simultaneously and to address challenges such as physical distance and functional silos. Forge members gain inspiration, guidance, connection, and most of all, ongoing accountability to strive.
Each Forge is a cohort of leaders (either like-level or affinity), led by a dedicated pLink Executive Coach and supported in a private Slack space and with curated learning resources. Forges meet monthly and only get better with time. Rolling enrollment allows organizations to support new and rising leaders immediately.
Impacts include stronger relationships, improved communication, increased systems awareness and collaboration, higher levels of trust and professional courage, and greater clarity of vision and priorities.
There are so many “leadership development” experts and consultants out there that it’s hard to know who can actually help. Only pLink, in my experience, takes the time to connect with each participant and understand their true struggles in order to help. Their materials are realistic and helpful and never rely on platitudes or formulaic “solutions.” Our entire leadership team has benefited from our time with pLink, as has the staff.
