Korn Ferry

Are your leaders operating at

peak performance?


The need for effective leadership has never been greater. Success will depend on how rapidly and decisively your organization is able to respond. Are your leadership teams properly equipped to lead the way?

Korn Ferry’s Executive Development and Coaching practice provides leaders with the capabilities they need to rise to the challenges and maximize the opportunities facing their organization now and in the future.

Drawing on the richest portfolio of assessment tools on the market and combining standardized methodologies with a highly tailored approach, we have an unmatched ability to enhance effectiveness at the individual, team, and organizational level.

Coaching inside out and outside in.

We believe the best approach to executive coaching is a combination of “inside-out” and “outside-in.” Inside-out coaching focuses on individual drivers and goals: we help leaders clarify their goals, and gain insight into how their beliefs, values, and motivations drive their behaviors at work. Outside-in coaching focuses on organization goals: we help leaders better understand what their organization defines as a success profile and how others perceive them relative to that profile. By integrating these two coaching elements, we are able to help leaders transform performance at a personal, interpersonal, and organizational level.
