Organizational Leadership coaching
Our Organizational Leadership Coaches are members of the International Coach Federation (ICF) and certified through the Columbia University Coaching Certification Program or the UT-Dallas Coaching Program. Quicksmarts offers several different coaching packages to include volume coaching. We are focused on YOUR agenda as the client and partner with you to develop a package to achieve your organizational goals.
We coach and develop agile and adaptive leaders who think and learn more quickly and effectively in their daily leadership roles. We call this Quicksmarts. Managers and executives accomplish the organization’s mission and purpose through effective leadership. A leaders ability to influence others, or derailing behaviors under stress are examples of what could get in the way of effective leadership. Improving a leaders performance starts with self-awareness. Quicksmarts partners with organizational leaders to gain that awareness and build from that foundation.
Organizational Leadership & Talent development programs
Leaders develop and learn through experience. That is why Quicksmarts offers a number of leadership development experiences that range from classroom workshops to outdoor scenarios. We design a challenging, engaging, and fun environment where participants learn leader skills and then get a chance to practice them. In addition, we provide follow-on coaching packages to help reinforce the learning.
design thinking: leading innovators
Leaders influence innovation and change in organizations. With the right leadership, your team—and the innovators on your team—has the potential to become a creative powerhouse. Design Thinking is a way to tap into that creativity, to open your team to collaborative interdisciplinary thinking. You can lead and influence your team to solve problems together using the iterative design thinking process.
We offer workshops and coaching based on our professional experiences and what we learned at the Stanford d.school that teach the basics of the methodology tailored to an organization’s needs. Our follow-on coaching packages reinforce the learning and help integrate new skills into the organizations innovation processes.

organizational culture development solutions
Organizational culture can be a competitive advantage! If leaders do not take steps to shape the culture, the culture shapes itself. For leaders wishing to develop and build a positive organizational climate and culture, we offer solutions for leaders to understand the social context of the organization. This includes identifying core organizational values and associated behaviors, establishment of hiring and on-boarding initiatives and integration into organizational leader development and coaching programs.
By focusing on establishing a positive organizational culture, organizations can be better prepared to handle complexity, and the rapid change needed to remain relevant in today’s environment.
