Higher Ground Leadership® Coaching
Higher Ground Leadership® Coaching is a rigorous approach to helping leaders achieve high-performance -not just in business, but in all aspects of their lives. It is a one-to-one dialogue that seeks to discover and enhance personal and professional performance – and joy. It combines inner wisdom with innovative learning.
People hire coaches to inspire them to grow from where they are to where they aspire to be, and a great coach sees through where a person is, to where they can be. Lance Secretan
Who Can Benefit Most?
Higher Ground Leadership® Coaching is a method of helping leaders discover their strengths, clarify their values, focus and direction, successfully meet challenges, build leadership skills, create inspiring relationships in all aspects of life and assist in discovering one’s Destiny, Character and Calling (Why-Be-Do) and living the CASTLE® Principles in rich, meaningful, impactful lives. Our clients tend to be successful executives and senior leaders, often dealing with transition and change, committed to personal breakthroughs, and whose organizations support their coaching needs.
Our unique approach to Executive Coaching (Higher Ground Leadership®) helps leaders think, envision possibilities, make wise decisions, wrangle strategic decisions, identify and nurture talent, nurture creativity, integrate work, life and well-being, and clarify paths that lead to resolution of quandaries – and above all, to achieve breakthroughs and aspirations that, until now, have remained dreams. We support clients in transferring their learning into effective behaviors and actions that lead to enhanced personal and organizational results – in other words, breakthroughs that change their lives – and the world.
How does it work?
The coaching relationship begins with a dialogue with the client to determine the best format, schedule and plan for the client and the Higher Ground Leadership® Coach. The coach then interviews a group of colleagues who know the client well, to learn about the client’s strengths, challenges, opportunities for growth, etc.. The client and coach then schedule an initial session called an “Intake Session” which normally takes between 1½ to 2 hours. Future appointments between the client and the Coach are then scheduled—2 per month, usually for a minimum of one year (real change takes time!), each session lasting 50-60 minutes.

"Lance is interested in self-sustaining and dramatic improvement: what creates a positive energy that cannot be depleted? Lance teaches how inspiration and inspiring behavior transcend motivational fad, raise the game to the highest level, to the most people fastest; and are wholly integrated with one’s life (rather than seeing work life as separate from home life) thus creating a genuine, complete, and virtuous cycle."
