Since the mid-1980s, there has been a massive growth in executive and leadership coaching. Firms offering these kinds of services often employ energetic and charismatic people who promise to increase performance, build confidence and provide guidance in all matters related to running a company.
However, as highlighted in this research by Harvard Business Review from 2002, these services didn't always drive the right change or provide the expected results. This problem has persisted until today, as illustrated by this more recent article.
How do we help our clients?
Primus inter pares
Our team at Cognition Shared Services LLC has decided to provide a more structured and specific set of services aimed at providing executive and management teams with the skills and knowledge to run resilient and well-structured businesses.

Structured review of your business processes, data and risk

We can also organize dedicated training sessions for yourself or your team in the areas of:

How do these services work?
We work with our clients' companies on large projects or transformation programs and apply smaller-scale sessions, focusing on a single team or a person.
Depending on the program's goals, our offer ranges from 1h consulting session to 1-2 day training programs to 6 months of regular coaching engagements.
