Leadership Coaching for Guaranteed & Measurable Leadership Growth

The Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Leadership Coaching Programme is highly effective in providing leadership growth according to a worldwide study of 11,000 business leaders and managers.


We’re so confident in the results from our leadership coaching that we offer 12 months’ coaching on a No Growth, No Pay basis.

That’s right. We know our leadership coaching works, so we offer you a 12 month programme on a No Growth, No Pay basis, subject to the agreed programme process. At the end of the 12 months, if there is no evidence of improvement, you don’t owe us anything.

We can work on individual assignments or put together an international team.

Guaranteed Results

We guarantee measurable leadership growth results throughout the coaching program using Marshall’s confidential Leadership Growth Progress Review (LGPR mini survey).

No Growth – No Pay

At the end of the year-long coaching programme, your payment is subject to seeing measurable growth in leadership effectiveness, based on a confidential survey with your stakeholders.  You only pay us after the 12 months when the leadership improvement has been confirmed.

Highly Effective and Time Efficient

The coaching program is a real-time, on-the-job process. It makes leadership growth an integral part of the leader’s daily interaction with stakeholders. The whole coaching program is focused on behavioural change to enhance leadership effectiveness. The major challenge, often faced by executives today, is not their understanding of the practice of leadership, it is practising their understanding of leadership. This process turns theory into practice and then into results.

Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching is proven

Ninety-five per cent of executives who applied MGSCC measurably improved their leadership effectiveness. These results are based on a study of more than 11,000 executives and mid-level managers from multinationals (including GE Capital, Agilent, Intel, Dell, Johnson & Johnson) across various continents, cultures and industries.

Real Time & On the Job

The leadership coaching program is a structured process that involves the leader and his/her stakeholders (boss, peers and direct reports) and integrates the coaching process into the daily activities of the leader and his/her interactions with stakeholders. As a result, this coaching process creates lasting leadership effectiveness growth and performance improvement on the job.

Where to start

We recommend that each programme has an HR owner and a business sponsor. There should be an initial 45 minute meeting with each of these before moving on to phase 1 and the coachability assessment. After that, we expect formal commitment to the programme. For clients that want further support with the decision making process, we offer two different Executive Team Workshops:

  • A 2 hour Executive Team Workshop with a senior coach to explain the benefits, process, give the participants some experience, and answer any questions that may arise. The investment is just your time and the coach’s travelling expenses.
  • A 4 hour Advanced Executive Team Workshop with a senior practice leader to ‘jump start’ your programme. This has all the features  of the Executive Team Workshop with the added opportunity to quiz one of our most experienced practice managers.

“MGSCC helps people to re-focus on what is truly important in our lives as leaders and as human beings.

Ultimately it is the human spirit that drives change and growth in an organization.

Stakeholder Centered Coaching helps us understand how we can nurture that spirit.”

Chuck Presbury, Director, Executive Learning and Development, Pitney Bowes

“While many experts are effective in creating awareness and interest, MGSCC  addresses the topic personal improvement in such a way which kindles the required motivations to drive to action.”

Charles J. Corace, Director, Management Education & Development, Johnson & Johnson  

“I have experienced that the MGSCC program is highly engaging and it teaches practical and actionable ways leaders can get better.”
