Coaching is at the core of everything we do, and we take great pride in doing it well. By developing capability within your teams at all levels, you create not only a sustainable competitive advantage but also an organizational snowball effect. As students become teachers there is a compounding effect that can transform the entire culture of your business. That’s why we’re passionate about coaching; contact us to discuss why you should be too.

Coaching & Consulting Range of Offerings

The range of skills, experience, and specialization in our network of coaches and consultants allow us to closely match your unique requirements with the appropriate resource(s), resulting in both efficient and cost-effective solutions. The figure below illustrates a generalized approach to requirements matching: 


Client Need:

  • Large Size Organization
  • Organization-Wide Impact
  • C-Level Contract
  • Complex Issue / Problem
Coach / Consultant Selection:
  • Advanced Education
  • C-Level Positions Held
  • >20 Years of Experience



Client Need:

  • Small Size Organization
  • Departmental Impact
  • Staff-Level Contract
  • Low Complexity Issue / Problem
Coach / Consultant Selection:
  • Post-Secondary Education
  • Middle Management Positions Held
  • >5 Years of Experience

*Information is contextual and does not represent final selection criteria for any contract or consultant

In addition to requirements matching, LLI employs an internal coaching model on every coaching or consulting contract (yes, we practice what we teach!), meaning the actions taken and direction provided by your coach / consultant receive a “second-source verification” in virtual real-time. This not only contributes to the constant development and improvement of our coaches and consultants, but also increases the quality of services you receive.
