Coaching Excellence in Organizations

Coaching Excellence in Organizations (CEO) is a multi-year, graduate-level program for experienced coaches.

It empowers coaches to deliver greater value to clients by showing them how to identify and address the underlying concerns and opportunities in their organizations.

“Our success, or not, in business or in life is a function of the conversations we’re having, not having,  and how well we are having them.”   —Bob Dunham

In CEO, external coaches gain a competitive advantage in a crowded marketplace.  Internal coaches will add significant ROI to their organizations.

  • Deal productively and creatively with overwhelm and capacity (theirs and their clients)
  • Explore the skills, abilities, and wisdom needed to lead and organize with today’s speed and complexity
  • Develop your emotional capacity and work with your clients to do the same
  • Measure the impact of your coaching
  • Explore the crucial dimension of moods and emotions in organizational life, and their role in leadership impact
  • Add value to your offer as a successful executive coach
  • Be supported by a team of high-level peers in a challenging environment
  • Using the very best practices for coaching leaders and teams, CEO-trained coaches learn to increase their performance AND their well-being
  • Earn ICF CCEUs upon completion

“There has never been a moment in history when our leaders have encountered the pressure, expectations, and commitments as they are today, As coaches and confidants, it is a unique privilege to support their commitment to the future that leaders believe in.  The CEO Program does this through rigor, living examples, and current material relevant in today’s organizational environment.”   —Bob Dunham
