Case Study: Preventing a High-Potential Female Leader from Leaving
Updated: Feb 15
A fast-track executive was dissatisfied with her career path and was close to exiting.
Her boss was distressed when he learned that the company may lose her.
Her boss strongly recommended coaching, and then they'd let the chips fall where they may, once the Candidate went through the entire process.
An in-depth coaching process ensued.
The Candidate immersed herself in a comprehensive discovery process.
The Coaching identified the sources of her career path dissatisfaction (she had been selling herself short). She also acknowledged a blind spot that, if it had gone unattended, almost certainly would have either stalled her career or derailed it.
In collaboration with management, the Candidate set and then achieved a major “stretch goal.”
Achieving this stretch goal reoriented her career path and re-energized her.
She did an exemplary job of addressing her counter-productive tendencies.
This high-potential leader remained with the corporation and has become a role model for the organization.
