Learning Program Support Coaching

Research shows that adding coaching into a learning program increases retention of the learning and increases the application of that learning for long-term, positive behavior change.

Executive Coaching

The company will also provide one-on-one coaching for directors and C-suite executives, using a proprietary methodology and process, which combined with FranklinCovey content, can enable high-performing executives to take advantage of opportunities or overcome tough challenges, such as:

  • Executives who seek to boost their professional and personal growth through an aggressive, results-oriented program
  • Executives who are preparing for a critical succession move or who have recently moved into a key, new role
  • Executives with a leadership style or approach that is not producing desired results

Robert Gregory Partners will also continue to offer other services, including leadership development consulting, cohort coaching, and transition acceleration coaching and consulting.
