Employee Engagement Innovator Workplace Options Launches Executive Coaching Program to Elevate Human-Centered Leadership and Enhance Business Outcomes


RALEIGH, N.C., July 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a technology-driven world and ever-evolving workplace, where AI is often a part of daily life, there remains a need for human-centered leadership – executives who are self-aware and compassionate. Workplace Options (WPO), the world’s largest independent provider of holistic wellbeing and employee engagement solutions, announced the launch of an innovative Executive Coaching Program offering individualized coaching designed to propel leadership development for teams and organizations. The new global service is composed of Consultation, Invitation Package, Leadership Assessment, and Executive Coaching sessions, where eligible members attend 12 sessions of Executive Coaching, via telephone or video, delivered by the selected Executive Coach.

“Our Executive Coaching is a catalyst for advanced leadership development, enhanced engagement, and increased commitment within teams,” said Alan King, President and CEO, Workplace Options. “Recognizing that successful leaders require more than just expertise in their respective fields, coaching is emerging as a preferred approach to empowering organizations and their employees effectively.”

When an individual begins the exclusive Executive Coaching Program, they complete a self-assessment to evaluate 25 key competencies to increase self-awareness, understand strengths and opportunity for growth. This helps with the focus of the coaching to support the greatest outcomes. Individuals are matched with an executive coach who will best strengthen their specific leadership skills and help them gain new perspectives and increased self-awareness. Every Executive Coaching Program is customized to connect with each executive’s values, goals, and potential. The program was developed to produce measurable results: tangible and sustainable improvements in leadership effectiveness, decision-making, performance, and overall wellbeing.

“WPO took the ‘democratization approach’ to coaching and made it available to everyone in an organization,” said Debbie Jongkind, Senior Vice President of Coaching and Leadership, Workplace Options. “We are proud of the impact we have made on organizations by making coaching so accessible to all. Now, we want to deliver a world-class solution designed specifically for senior leaders of organizations. When these executives engage in our new coaching, they maximize their leadership potential, expand their confidence, and develop a strategic mindset – resulting in personal growth and positive organizational impact.”

WPO strongly believes in the powerful impact of coaching and supports its own staff and leaders with access to executive coaching, success coaching, and professional coach training. For the past 15+ years, WPO has provided wellness and life coaching for employees around the world.
