Glen Ellyn, Illinois — Leaders often find themselves in a lonely spot longing for a strategic advisor and coaching companion.
The importance of a companion on the leadership journey, especially as one climbs higher on the corporate ladder, cannot be stressed enough. A true companion understands the loneliness and the pressures to perform flawlessly as well as the need to be a trusted strategic advisor bringing clarity and building confidence on the leadership journey. The Leadership Companion is the perfect solution to uncover the leadership fire within and to keep it burning.
One of the unique aspects of the Leadership Companion is the depth and breadth of the expertise of founder Rachel Bouman, who has served in leadership roles as a Deputy Counselor in a general counsel’s office, as the head of an Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, and as the Chief Human Capital Officer for a government agency.
Years ago, when she began her own leadership journey, Ms. Bouman was fortunate to meet a leadership coach who helped her uncover her own courage and became a trusted confidant of hers. Ms. Bouman says the value of her coach helped her zero in on the next step in her career. “I remember being at a crossroads in my career and not knowing which way to go — should I continue in employment litigation or step into a management position? Along came a coach who helped me understand my talents and get clear on my career goals. And he kept helping me uncover my courage whenever an obstacle presented itself on my career path.” Ms. Bouman now helps leaders do the same in their careers.
The Leadership Companion offers in-person and virtual solutions for every level of leadership, from the executive to the first-time supervisor, as well as for businesses looking to build high-performing teams. An Academy Companion is set to launch in September and will allow leaders to grow their leadership competencies in a small-group setting with like-minded, high-performing leaders. Interested leaders can visit www.theleadershipcompanion.com to put their names on the wait list.
Any leaders looking for a trusted leadership companion to join them on their journey will be well served by scheduling an appointment at www.theleadershipcompanion.com to talk with Ms. Bouman about their needs.
