Benton + Bradford develops individualized coaching and leadership development plans that guide executives and middle managers to progress with relevant, actionable insights.
Coaching sessions can be conducted in person or online. Benton + Bradford performs assessments (360º and Hogan Assessments) and establishes goals with the business that fuel a collaborative coaching plan.
Our customized leadership development programs guide teams through a deep evaluation of their composition and values, and how to translate their identity into improved business results.
Through regular review sessions, we can work together to monitor progress and allow for reassessment of goals and focus, including:
Our client, a leader in the communications and content space, engaged the firm to assist a key senior leader with a mid-career transition. While historically a star performer, this leader’s performance had declined in the new role. The organization needed this individual to deliver strong results with their new team for the division to be successful.
We met with the VP HR and the leader’s manager to understand the needs of the organization along with the individual’s performance strengths and areas of development. We then assessed the leader with the Hogan and a 360º assessment with Emotional Quotient. From these assessments, focusing on evident strengths, we charted a course to improve individual and team performance. The interventions included biweekly coaching, reviewing business strategy and discussing ways to gain collaboration from peers with clear alignment within the team.
Our efforts resulted in the leader rapidly improving individual performance and advancing team performance beyond executive leadership’s expectations. The leader was better able to collaborate with peers, lead a diverse team more effectively and communicate desired results in a manner that enabled the team to take action. The leader and their team successfully delivered needed results for the division, solidifying a high-performance position within the organization.
A senior HR leader was promoted from within the company.
The HR leader enjoyed a successful transition, as measured by the rapid adoption of a new HR structure that increased both the resolution of employee relations issues and the speed at which the organization adopted change.
