Executive Coaching for Your Team or Organization

Pushing Beyond Conventional Standards

For more than 20 years, Jody Michael Associates has been pushing beyond the conventional standards of executive coaching to incorporate technology, human behavior, neuroscience and psychology.

The result: Deeper, systemic change that can profoundly transform a leader’s perspective, performance and bottom-line results. We’ve coached executives, high potentials and leadership teams from Fortune 100 companies to small businesses.

We can help you or your leaders:

  • Improve leadership skills and performance to increase impact and influence
  • Successfully transition to a new company or role
  • Enhance the execution capacity and interactions of a team
  • Increase self-awareness and emotional intelligence
  • Foster a greater commitment to accountability in order to help achieve results more quickly and communicate more effectively
  • Address derailing behavior that stands in the way of advancement

… a rigorous process focused on real results.

I’ve worked with Jody for multiple years and she’s been tremendously helpful to me and my team.  Jody is a great executive coach with a rigorous process focused on real results.

… brings credibility, a great track record and expertise in coaching top leaders.

Exceptional, impactful, superb communicator are the phrases that come to mind when I think of Jody. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jody for the last year as an executive coach. She brings credibility, a great track record and expertise in coaching top leaders in the fast-moving tech sector. Her process, clarity and the workshops will undoubtedly have a strong impact on anyone who works with Jody. Her prior trading leadership background allows her to relate to fast-paced, high-stakes, action-based tech sector.

Targeted Support to Expand Leadership Capabilities

Our executive coaching supports — and challenges — leaders in reaching new levels of performance and results.

Corporate executive coaching engagements are generally contracted in six-month intervals. Sessions are offered in person, on the phone or as a combination of both. They are available on-site at your corporation, at either of our two Chicago locations, or through our Atlanta and New York offices

Our executive coaching process includes:

  • Pre-coaching qualitative and quantitative 360° phone or on-site interviews, ideally involving the leader’s supervisor, peers and direct reports to set a baseline for performance
  • Post-coaching qualitative and quantitative 360° phone or on-site interviews with the same stakeholders to measure performance improvement
  • A half-day initial assessment to deeply understand the executive’s personal and professional history and current environment
  • A cultural interview with HR, coupled with review of pertinent internal 360° reviews, to conduct a gap analysis
  • One-on-one coaching sessions to target the leader’s individual perceptual, developmental and leadership needs
  • Participation in two full-day workshops: Accountability Mirror™ and MindMastery™
  • Communication styles assessment and debrief
