Management Partners provides coaching for individuals who want to improve their executive skills and become better managers and leaders. Each coaching engagement is conducted in a confidential one-on-one setting tailored to the client’s individual circumstance. Our executive coaching services can be as short as one or two meetings or involve multiple coaching sessions over several months.
Our one-on-one executive coaches work to:
- Establish an easy rapport with the individual;
- Strengthen executive skills such as operational planning, leadership and staff effectiveness;
- Create positive ways to listen and communicate;
- Develop strategies to accomplish individual and organizational goals; and
- Establish meaningful work programs and priorities that can be achieved.
Our approach often starts by conducting an in-depth interview. A self-assessment instrument is then typically used for initial feedback about skills and abilities. When desired, a peer assessment survey also can be used to gather confidential input from others. Finally, we create an individualized work plan to specify the professional development steps that will be taken.
Our successes with this service include the projects highlighted below.

"The fiscal model has given us a powerful long-range planning tool to help guide us through the development and housing downturn we are currently experiencing. The variety of data inputs and number of different variables give the model an unlimited number of potential uses." - Kerry Breen, Assistant Finance Director, City of Brentwood, CA
