Good episode? Give it some love!
Truly grateful for the opportunity to publicly thank one of my newfound mentors, Chris Coffey, who was instrumental in my radio/podcast sponsorship partnership with, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching! Executive Coach, Chris Coffey, is one of the best of the best whose specialty is working with “hard-nosed” leaders!  A Not-To-Be-Missed Show on my C-Suite Radio / C-Suite Network !! Chris Coffey is very driven in to “help successful leaders get even better, sustain it, and have others recognize and acknowledge it” and he is uniquely masterful in working with “hard-nosed” leaders. As he worked with Marshall Goldsmith for over three decades he is also a major contributor to the development of Marshall’s Stakeholder Centered Coaching methodology. As an executive coach he has impacted the professional lives and careers of high level executives and their teams from a diversity of industries and cultural contexts in transformative ways. Chris is an exemplar of leadership development due to his decades of successfully coaching executives and his use of well-placed humor and irony. Chris’ charisma inspires positive and forward looking solutions and turning challenges into opportunities. Chris is exceptionally gifted in telling powerful stories and cases in which he integrates management theory and best leadership practice and wraps this into actionable bundles of change. At the start of his collaboration with Marshall, Chris took part in the development of the highly successful Excellent Manager Program for IBM. This flagship leadership development program for IBM was later adopted by various other firms like Warner Lambert, Citibank, Apple and many other Fortune 500 companies. Later on Chris co-founded Marshall Goldsmith: Stakeholder Centered Coaching® with Frank Wagner and Marshall. Chris is dedicated to engage high-performing leaders whose organizations want to accelerate their development, build bench strength, and create a coaching culture. Chris’ coaching style is straightforward and is built around nourishing the behaviors of successful people. Naturally curious and a life-long learner, Chris has the ability to take in the whole and synthesize out the essential. The underpinning of his coaching developed from this ability to understand the belief set of successful people and then determine how successful people get even better. Chris tailors this insight combined with coaching skill creating a custom developmental process advancing the positive aspects of leaders’ beliefs while overcoming the aspects that hold them back in order to assure measurable and sustainable growth. Chris is the author of the best seller “Secrets of a Leadership Coach Guidebook” along with Marshall Goldsmith and Daniel Farb. This work imparts wisdom from executive coaches to help increase personal and communication skills resulting in better leadership, personal interactions and team-building. His newest book ‘The New IQ, Leading up down and across using Innovative Questions’ is centered around Peter Drucker’s philosophy of “The leader of the past knew how to tell, the leader of the future will know how to ask”. Leaders learn the skills of using various types of questions and statements that will help them change the course of interactions, engage in more productive conversations, and create the impact they are looking for.
