I first experienced impactful leadership coaching as a client, while struggling to grow my start-up retail service business together with my team of branch supervisors and managers. Our coaches helped us to formulate goals, develop deep insights and encouraged follow-up action that allowed us to build a thriving business with over a dozen branches and over a hundred associates. During this period, I realized the importance of having a growth-oriented leadership team I could count on.
This positive experience led to my personal interest in helping organizations improve their leadership teams, this time as a coach. I work especially well with small and medium-sized businesses, who often have leadership teams that have been promoted from within.
Challenges that business owners, managers, and supervisors often deal with:
Declining personal motivation especially after a series of setbacks, or boredom with routine. Often this shows up as a lack of initiative
Few improvement projects are initiated, and there is a heavy reliance on a crisis to spur new actions
A lack of team spirit and identity, which results in low engagement and, at worst, causes good people to leave.
Poor verbal skills crop up in crucial interactions such as facilitating meetings, giving clear directions, updating management, and providing feedback to team members.
Inadequate coaching and mentoring skills especially with new hires, resulting in the slow development of people and stagnant results.
To address these issues, I offer High-Impact Leadership Programs
The Business Leap Coaching Program
This Coach Leon Signature Program is for hands-on business owners who want to empower their managers and supervisors to initiate and execute impactful projects within their departments. Clients who qualify for this program experience a relatively quick return on their training investment, whilst transforming the mindset and behaviors of their leaders. Clients from different industries have benefited from this program, including Pueblo de Panay (real estate developer), Hizon’s Catering Services, Golden Great Value Properties (mall operator), and Krypton Sales and Services (mining equipment and supplies).
“Everything has been an eye opener for me. I realized that I still have a lot to learn and I’m very thankful that I am able to attend this training. I am amazed at Coach Leon’s energy in sharing with us his experiences. I am excited to share my knowledge with my team.”
