Notre Dame Executive Coaching

Notre Dame Executive Coaching

Development As You Need It

By providing a wise perspective, Notre Dame Executive Coaching gives you insight to build your leadership capacity, resiliency, and confidence. Notre Dame’s personalized executive coaching focuses on clear outcomes that lead to improved, sustainable business results and authentic happiness. Developed for leaders who have taken our Executive Integral Leadership course, or those who want to invest in coaching only, the coaching options are designed to build on your experience and your story. Each will help you develop as a professional and as a person.

For All Leaders

Do you seek an expert perspective on the leadership challenges you face? Are you curious to gain systematic feedback from others who have a stake in your leadership? Or are you hoping to build on the insights you gained during your Notre Dame Executive Integral Leadership week?

The best part of coaching is having the ability to apply change theory to your own business case.

—Al Gutierrez, President & CEO of Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center Mishawaka, IN

Executive Coaching is for any professional seeking a one-on-one partnership to gain clarity on next steps for his/her leadership development. Executive Coaching through the Stayer Center for Executive Education offers a personalized, one-on-one approach to help you improve as a leader. Built around our trusted 360° feedback instrument, the Leadership Circle Profile®, Executive Coaching will help you further develop your strengths and create a roadmap for your future.

"The 360° feedback and executive coaching validated my own honorable way and different style; I don’t have to be combative."    

—Executive Coaching participant
