The majority of senior leaders receive little to no professional development each year. Yet, it is
their skills, behaviors and decisions that will ultimately make or break the company.
How many of the following challenges do you face?
• “The business is reaching a critical inflection point and I’m worried that I may be missing
things in my strategies.”
• “Because I spend so much time running the business and managing my direct reports, I’ve
had no time for my own development.”
• “It’s extremely difficult to get objective feedback on my ideas because very few people
internally will risk disagreeing with me.”
• “I’m inconsistent in finding the discipline to block out time in my schedule to think, discuss
and develop fresh new ideas for the business.”
Ask yourself if you’re as good as you could be in areas such as:
• Making strategic trade-offs to better prioritize initiatives
• Effectively matching your time allocation with your goals
• Evolving the business model to meet future customer needs
• Understanding the dynamics of competitive advantage in your market
• Championing strategies throughout the organization until successful
• Crafting a simple, concise and easily understood strategic plan
If one or more of the challenges rings true and you
believe you can improve, then you may find value in
expert Strategic Coaching. As CEO of the Strategic Thinking
Institute, a former Chief Strategy Officer and professor of strategy,
Rich brings the unique combination of real-world strategy
experience and the expertise of a New York Times & Wall Street
Journal bestselling author on strategy into your corner. He has
provided Strategic Coaching to C-Suite executives, Presidents,
General Managers and Vice Presidents to help them more
strategically lead their groups.
Strategic Coaching
Rich Horwath, CEO
Strategic Thinking Institute
Strategic Coaching has the following benefits:
• Enables you to confidently set strategic direction and minimize risk because you have the
opportunity to discuss a range of strategic options with a strategy expert prior to decisions.
• Gives you a safe harbor to“think out loud”without having to carefully edit each thought as
you do when speaking to colleagues within your organization.
• Provides a wealth of developmental tools and activities to build your strategic capabilities.
• Allows for honest, objective feedback because Rich has no internal political agenda.
• New source of strategic insights to help you achieve your business goals.
Rich Horwath’s Strategic Coaching Process includes four elements:
Discover: Understanding your unique needs and goals.
Dialogue: Open and honest conversations about your key business issues.
Develop: Enhancing your strategic capabilities through insight exchanges, business updates,
plan reviews, and applicable strategy exercises.
Direction: Transforming the insights gained through dialogue and development into confident
strategic direction for you and your business.
Great leaders including Steve Jobs (Apple), Alan Mulally (Ford), Eric Schmidt (Google) and Jack
Welch (GE) all worked with an external coach/advisor. Join them and other leaders from
world-class companies that Rich has engaged with including:
Discover Dialogue Develop Direction
Rich Horwath does an exceptional job of quickly understanding your
business and then applying the most effective and efficient strategic
tools to add significant value to the organization. I would very much
recommend Rich to any leader that is looking to improve their strategic
thinking, planning and execution to help enhance both top and bottom
line. His Strategic Coaching was a great experience!!
