Transform Your Leaders with Emotional Intelligence and High-Performance Leadership Coaching
By starting with emotional intelligence, you will see an immediate return on your investment by unlocking their potential and tapping into a higher level of performance.Call To Action
At Black Diamond Leadership, we know that the foundation for successful leaders starts with emotional intelligence. That's why we prioritize it when developing your leaders, empowering them to understand themselves and others better and make decisions with empathy.
From there, we move on to more complex concepts such as critical conversations, building trust, and fostering psychological safety - all of which further equip your leaders to foster motivation, satisfaction, and peak performance among their team members.
Developing leaders with emotional intelligence is an important step in achieving organizational goals. Here are four steps to do it:
- Establish the importance of emotional intelligence and critical conversations among team members.
- Facilitate communication between leaders and team members to develop trust and psychological safety.
- Encourage leadership to be mindful of their own emotions and those of their team members and create a safe environment for dialogue.
- Focus on developing individual strengths, helping others find solutions, and problem-solving collaboratively to foster collaboration, growth, and high performance.
The Focus Is On The Outcomes
Coaching programs “begin with the end in mind.” The coach is continually helping clients clarify the outcomes they want. As such, the focus of coaching is on creating the future rather than getting over the past.
Helping clients articulate the outcomes they desire guides the entire process, whether setting goals to achieve a larger life vision or solving day-to-day problems.
Coaching has been demonstrated to achieve powerful results when you, the client:
- Are willing to learn, make changes and take responsibility for your personal situation;
- Can identify a gap between where you are and where you want to be;
- Have patience and persistence to do what it takes to make progress.
Goals of Coaching Programs
◆ Visioning and taking action (“Forward the action”). Coaching is designed to get you into action and move you forward to the accomplishment of your vision. The structure of the coaching relationship encourages you to have a forward-looking view of your life and take initiative to make positive changes. This is especially true for business coaching programs, where the conversation focuses on exploring the outcomes you want and then the actions you will take to achieve those outcomes. Coaches not only support the client but also hold the client accountable for taking positive action.
◆ Learning and self-discovery (“Deepen the learning”). The coaching relationship is an opportunity for you to learn about yourself. Such learning is not just a by-product of coaching but an end in and of itself. Learning brings balance and perspective to the goals and actions associated with accumulating (having) and accomplishing (doing). Through self-discovery found through life coaching programs, you ground yourself in a higher level of emotional maturity (being) so that your vision and goals become more fully aligned with who you truly are.
◆ Transcending key moments. Coaching is also used to help you learn new responses to your key moments. Key moments are those situations and events that hold you back from taking positive action. It is often necessary to identify your habitual patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving when in your key moments in order to “forward the action.” Transcending key moments integrates both learning and self-discovery with taking action, allowing you to use leadership coaching programs as the stepping stone to success.

"I engaged Robert Grossman, owner of Black Diamond Leadership to help me with a speech I gave at a charity gala. I never enjoyed speaking publicly and I was really nervous about this speech.
Robert worked with me to understand my fears, where they were coming from and gave me some tools to relax and deliver one of the best presentations in my life.
Robert is understanding and kind, but very rigorous. He would not let me off the hook and he made me feel comfortable and I completely trusted Robert throughout the entire process.
I highly recommend Robert as a business coach if you want to improve your business, learn to be a better leader and of course, own the stage during a presentation."
