Delivery Approaches

PACE Coaching

The PACE coaching program is designed to support executives facing critical business challenges and professional growth opportunities. It gives people a chance to take stock of their current situation, understand how they are viewed by key stakeholders, set goals for personal development, and receive coaching support while they take action to achieve those goals.

The program is conducted in two phases. The insight phase includes the following:

  1. In-depth personal background interview
  2. Stakeholder identification and analysis
  3. Confidential interviews with 7-12 people
  4. Full-day feedback and coaching session
  5. Feedback report
  6. PACE matrix to integrate information
  7. Identification of growth opportunities
  8. Co-creation of coaching plan
  9. Three-way alignment meeting with boss

The coaching phase may last 6-12 months, depending on the nature of the development objectives and specific activities in the coaching plan.

Participant benefits include:

  • Compassionate support from a coach who challenges people to shape the lives they want to lead
  • Enhanced awareness about personal capabilities and how to leverage them for success
  • Expanded insight about stakeholder needs and expectations
  • Encouragement and guidance in learning or refining critical leadership skills
  • Opportunities to reflect on business challenges with an objective sounding board
  • Performance acceleration and the achievement of significant goals

Other Coaching Services

We offer a variety of other coaching services that are tailored to the needs of the individual and the company. While some coaches have their own specialties (e.g., psychological assessment, expatriate assimilation, cross-cultural training), all have significant talent management experience as well.

We help organizations:

  • Develop future leaders
  • Grow and retain key staff
  • Leverage strengths in their people
  • Build collaboration and trust
  • Align teams across cultures
  • Cultivate congruence at all levels
  • Foster innovation and resilience

Client Comments

"Katherine was able to analyze my leadership style and guide me to my own self discovery about what was effective and more importantly, what was leading to less than optimal results. Her approach was individualized and focused on achieving tangible changes that produced measurable impact. Several years later I am still referring to the notes from my sessions with Katherine and still growing as a result of my self-insight from her coaching support. It is indeed rare when one can gain a self-sustaining focus on leadership growth and maturity from working with someone for a relatively short time."
President, pharmaceuticals firm

"Katherine has valuable insights into the most effective ways of interacting with different people. Once I could visualize how my "one-size-fits-all" approach would be perceived by people with whom I interacted at work, I could identify what changes I needed to make in order to improve my relationships with each of them."
CFO, financial services firm

"Katherine is committed to digging deep with Executives in helping them attain break-away impacts in improved effectiveness. She helps you identify your passions and gifts and gain greater leverage from them for a more effective and rewarding experience."
Regional Director, computer firm

"Katherine does role playing to help me understand the pattern of my behavior. Then she suggests alternatives for me to consider. She is helping me change my behavior with my own motivation, step by step. I have never met such an insightful person. I sincerely appreciate her passionate and intelligent coaching."
President, life sciences firm
