Executive, Leader and Team Coaching
Coaching is individualized, targeted and accelerated
leadership development. At Stillwater Leadership, we believe that
coaching should happen in the context of business performance,
and that it should develop the whole person to his or her fullest
potential. Our coaches are true partners in helping leaders realize
their personal and professional goals and meet their most important
commitments. We do this by combining support and challenge, skills
development and insight creation. We provide tools and help build
During coaching we often uncover deeply held
beliefs and long term habits that no longer serve clients. Coaches
help leaders to identify blind spots and focus on what is important.
Coaches encourage leaders to try out new behaviors while holding
us accountable – all with unconditional positive regard,
mutual respect, and belief in our ability to grow. As coaches,
we witness what is possible with intentional focus, plenty of
practice and accountability. All of our leadership coaching modalities
listed below have these foundations.
Executive Coaching –
At the top, leaders need thought partners, yet they often don’t
get objective feedback. Our coaches have the top-level experience
and understanding to be thought partners coupled with the courage
and caring to help executives see what is not readily apparent.
High-Potential Coaching –
Do you want to get ready for the next level? We build awareness
of what’s required up there. We provide an honest assessment
and developmental practices and experiences to get ready.
Team Coaching – Not facilitation
and not for the faint of heart, yet powerfully effective. Team
coaching starts with coaching the team leader and then brings
coaching to the leader and team during real working sessions.
We uncover collective habits and patterns that don’t serve
the team; we provide live skills development and resources; and
hold the team accountable for fulfilling their commitments.

us back for years. Once a skeptic, I am now a believer in the
power of a great coach as a catalyst for individual and organizational

My coaching experience was absolutely invaluable.
Not only was I able to attain my professional goals as a leader,
but I was also able to leverage the skills gained to improve my
entire ’self’. I can’t imagine a more productive
use of time for those looking to improve their ability to effectively
lead, be it at work, home, or within their community.
