The way we work has permanently changed

Retaining and engaging great people is now one of the most pressing workplace challenges, with disengagement alone costing a company with 1,000 employees a minimum of $6 million annually.

A lack of leadership, burnout due to high staff turnover and poor company culture are commonly listed among the top reasons for employee dissatisfaction.

If organizations are going to continue to improve their results in a post-pandemic world we need to start leading people differently, in a way that has an organization-wide impact.

Rather than relying on conventional 1:1 coaching that focuses on improving individual outcomes, it’s time to equip all of your people leaders with coaching skills and provide them with ongoing support to sustain this learning to empower their teams and positively impact company culture.

This is the power of The Coach-Like Leader Experience™

We upskill everyday people leaders with foundational coaching skills that help them improve their own performance and that of their teams’, too.

I’m Lisa Martin, a Professional Certified Coach and the founder of The Coach-Like Leader Experience™

I’ve been in the business world for 25+ years and have coached thousands of leaders across hundreds of organizations.

A few years ago, I began to notice a real pain point in the coaching industry; Coaching leaders 1:1 wasn’t having a big enough impact organization-wide.

I knew there had to be a better way for organizations to implement coaching training that was sustainable and scalable with a high ROI. That was how the idea for The Coach-Like Leader Experience™ was born, my 12-month leadership training program for the modern workplace to help organizations grow and keep their best people.

When employees have access to Coach-Like Leaders, engagement, performance and retention all increase, impacting organizations’ results for the better.

What Our Clients Say

"I've taken other coaching workshops, but The Coach-Like Leader Experience™ is the best coaching skills program out there. The online platform was robust and easy to navigate, plus the videos and visuals were really useful. And the Coaching Pods really brought it all together so we could practice and integrate what we learned from the platform."

“I loved how this course was broken up into bite size pieces that were very easy to digest and apply. The content was concise and valuable and has made a difference in how I lead. I feel I have a much better sense of when to use coaching and how to ensure I do it everyday!"

“I loved the step-by-step approach in The Coach-Like Leader Experience. Each piece built on the previous piece and then came together — so that I felt that I understood coaching and was able to apply it."

“The Coach-like Leader Experience by Lisa Martin is a fantastic program for managers who want to up their leadership game and add coaching as a skillset. The program format and platform was great and interactive: a video lesson, questions to reflect on and answer, as well as tweaks to work on each week, with a weekly 1 hour group discussion to wrap it up. Each chapter built on the last and each week, I came away with practical and relevant techniques that I could incorporate on a daily basis. Last but not least, as a busy working mom, I appreciated that the workload was manageable. I have taken a few of Lisa's programs and she is an amazing facilitator."

“I really enjoyed the combination of the self-study and face-to-face design of The Coach-Like Leader Experience. I liked the micro online learning and I could fit it in at my convenience. I love the concept of tying coaching in as a tweak to what’s already working with my leadership style. My greatest learning is to stop giving advice and ask questions instead to ensure I don’t unintentionally undermine people’s sense of self-worth.”

The proof is in the data

When organizations embrace a modern coach-like workplace culture … results improve.

Organizations that have strong senior leader and cultural support of coaching have superior results. Organizations in which senior leaders “very frequently” coach had 21 percent higher business results.

High-Impact Performance Management: Maximizing Performance Coaching, Bersin & Associates / Stacia Sherman Garr, November 2011

Leaders who are good coaches have fewer employees thinking about quitting. More than 60% of employees reporting to a manager that is not a good coach are thinking about quitting, versus 22% reporting to the best coaches

Zenger Folkman Study 2015/2019

According to our research, employees would like to receive a good deal more coaching from their manager than they currently receive.

Zenger Folkman White Paper 2019

Coaching provides personalized learning and support to meet each person’s specific development needs, when and how they need it. BetterUp Member data demonstrates that coaching can improve individual performance by 104% and team performance by 137%.

Better Up Study 2021

The Insurance Institute estimates that it costs employers around $5000 per employee when they need mental health services and that the return on investment for these counseling and coaching services is 4:1.

Research from the National Safety Council and the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago, 2021

Weekly one-to-ones with managers during uncertain times lead to a 54% increase in engagement, a 31% increase in productivity, a 15% decrease in burnout, and a 16% decrease in depression among employees.

O.C. Tanner weekly pulse surveys, 2021

Gallup research shows that productivity among highly engaged teams is 14% higher than that of teams with the lowest engagement -- and that employees who are not engaged cost their company the equivalent of 18% of their annual salary.
