One-on-One Executive Coaching
Executive Coaching for Leading in Turbulent Times
Seven Stones’ one-on-one Transformational Coaching program is geared toward supporting senior executives and high-potential leaders as you strive to accomplish real, lasting, sustainable change for yourselves, your organizations and your world. Leaders at organizations big and small are asked to jump from being visionaries, to strategic thinkers, to managers. This work is at once isolating, thrilling and overwhelming.
Working Together for Common Outcomes
Group coaching acts as a catalyst, helping to spark the transformation of ideas, insights, and intentions into sustainable improvements in group behaviors and outcomes. The power of group coaching derives from the combination of three things: your current work context, leaders from across the organization building competencies together, and real-time interventions from Seven Stones coaches.
All meetings in which group coaching occurs are fully owned by the group members, not by the coaches. This means the group drives their own learning, sets their own processes and holds their own outcomes collectively. The coach acts as a guide, who provides frameworks to support the group to chart their own collective learning journey.
Continue Your Learning Journey
True transformation requires that any team do more than acquire useful tools, learn new ideas or skills, or achieve specific short-term results. The team, whether an intact or cross functional team, must develop and maintain fundamental new patterns of behavior and ways of working that produce lasting long-term changes.

Tools to Support Our Work
Insights Discovery is a validated psychometric tool based on the theories of Carl Jung. The tool is built to help people understand themselves and others, as well as to make the most of the relationships that affect them in the workplace and beyond. Insights Discovery explores preferences and describes probable patterns of behavior rather than fixed traits. It uses a simple and memorable four-color model to help people understand their style, their strengths and the value they bring to the team. We call these the color energies, and it's the unique mix of Fiery Red, Sunshine Yellow, Earth Green and Cool Blue energies which determines how we behave. The instrument is validated and is based on Jung’s Theory of Psychological Type.
The Leadership Circle Profile is an assessment tool created by leadership expert, Bob Anderson. Based on his Universal Model of Leadership, the Leadership Circle Profile assesses your Management Style and Personality, Competencies, and Underlying Tendencies and provides you with feedback. Many other profiles focus on only one of those aspects. By combining all three of these areas into one comprehensive, accessible tool, the Leadership Circle Profile provides you with competency feedback while acknowledging the underlying assumptions causing your patterns of strengths and limitations. The Leadership Circle Profile is supported by metrics, measurement, and research; and has been applied with a track record of success by thousands of organizations around the world.
The Enneagram is a highly sophisticated system of nine personality profiles that are meant to help us know ourselves and others, as well as how others “see” and experience us. Each Enneagram type can help individuals navigate their ongoing personal growth and ultimately build more satisfying and collaborative relationships in both work and personal life.
The Enneagram is a comprehensive system that describes how personality and character structure are formed in three centers of our human existence: mind, heart, and body. The course Building Collaboration and Trust Through the Enneagram is an opportunity to work with all three centers in pursuit of deeper personal awareness, and in building trust-based relationships.
