Built on the foundation of Gratitude, Resilience, Integrity and Transformation and further inspired by "The Serving Leader" (Ken Jennings & John Stahl-Wert) and the work of Simon Sinek, among many other thought leaders, the coaching framework of G.R.I.T. came to life to co-create your own dream team. The ICF defines coaching as partnering in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires maximized personal and professional potential.
"The Serving Leader" emphasizes "to be alive is to learn and grow" and identifies three high-level lessons leaders must embrace:
(1) Change always starts with the heart
(2) Our response to failure is key
(3) Work and life must integrate
Our G.R.I.T. Dream Teams develop and strengthen people-over-profit executives and companies, and provide a structured framework for human development that is simply summarized in our six word story (think Ernest Hemingway): Curious challenge, empowering humans, purposeful transformation.
G.R.I.T. Dream Teams align with the principles of "The Serving Leader" and involve showing up with courage and a desire to shift and expand. Leaders who upend the traditional hierarchical pyramid by always putting people first, modeling true authenticity and vulnerability, demonstrating undivided integrity, engaging from a place of gratitude, and valuing resilience and the capacity to expand, experience personal and organizational transformation beyond what they imagined was possible.
