Manager Coaching

Meeting with a Wherewithall coach is like having a one-on-one with a manager who cares deeply about, and is invested in, you and your own growth.

One-on-One Coaching

Wherewithall's coaching practice leverages four primary skills in a blended approach. Your coach will provide:

  • Coaching: using open questions to help you deeply introspect and understand the shape of your challenge, before moving into problem-solving mode
  • Mentoring: giving advice, sharing our perspective and what we've seen work/not work, if we have familiarity with the topic
  • Sponsoring: advocating, making introductions for new leadership opportunities when we have potentially helpful connections
  • Feedback: routinely sharing clear, specific, and actionable feedback to help you continue to grow

Group Coaching

Roundtables are a safe space for a group of managers to meet and talk through recent dilemmas, workshop challenges they’re facing, and continuously strengthen their management skills.

Participants can see the different ways others may approach a problem, and acquire new skills they see demonstrated like reflective listening, leveraging open questions, and holding a difficult conversation.

Working with Lara is the best thing I’ve done for my career. She challenges me, encourages me, and gives me new tools for approaching my work. I leave our conversations with renewed energy, clarity, and focus, and have become a much stronger manager and leader through our work together.
