Morneau Shepell Ltd. is working with Vision Coaching Inc. to offer an expanded leadership coaching program to its employer clients.

The program will take advantage of the leadership coaching firm’s online V1 Coaching System, which pairs leaders with a coach and has a structured approach to coaching and tracking progress. While Morneau Shepell traditionally supplies a leadership coach to employers in times of crisis, the services will be offered proactively as a leadership growth opportunity, according to a press release.

“A customer would call and say, ‘I have this issue with this leader, how can you help?’ And coaching would be a solution,” said Denise Richardson, Morneau Shepell’s senior director of workplace learning solutions. “Now we are having conversations about organizations investing in their talent and using coaching as a tool to support employees.

“I also think today, with the war for talent, organizations are starting to understand the value of investing in coaching — especially at the senior leadership level.”
