We’ve partnered with the coaching team at 3D Leadership over the years to deliver high-impact 360-degree feedback debriefs to our most discerning executive education clients, many of them international. At Babson, our standards for affiliation are extremely high, and our clients expect to work with seasoned and savvy coaches who understand the challenges of senior executives, and who can structure feedback in ways that will have a significant impact. The 3D team never disappoints, and our return clients will request that they stay involved in our programs. For these reasons, our first call is always to Angie O’Donnell when we need a coaching partner who can bring a cohesive and insightful team to our most complex client engagements.
Since 2008, the team at 3D Leadership has become my trusted thought partner; they’ve invested the time to understand our leaders, our business and our culture. The result? Powerful coaching and development outcomes for individuals and groups at many levels. Our organization is built around relationships and they can easily navigate the C-Suite in ways that demonstrate their competence and engender trust. Over the years I’ve hired the team for high impact coaching engagements, team coaching, 360 assessments and to participate in our Leadership Institute and will continue to deepen our professional partnership.
I’ve worked with the 3D Leadership team three times since 2008; their work product, integrity, and social intelligence place them in the top echelon of all consultants I have ever hired. They throw themselves into the task and get along very well with students and staff alike, they are imaginative thought partners, zealots about improving year-over-year outcomes – and they are also fun work with. I would hire them again in an instant.
3D Leadership has been working with our entrepreneurial leadership team for three years as we’ve experienced explosive growth and I would highly recommend them to my fellow Founder/CEO’s who are focused on continuously developing leadership as the company evolves. Our fast growing, venture back organization requires a “just-in-time” approach and the 3D team has consistently delivered on creating off-sites, leadership workshops, and customized coaching programs within tight time frames. Best of all, they’re fun to work with and have taken a sincere interest in our people, our products, and our potential.
The expertise of the 3D Leadership team spans the spectrum. Over the past 6 years, I’ve partnered with them in different companies to provide robust 360 degree feedback to both high potential leaders and some more difficult derailing executives and they handled both situations beautifully. They’ve delivered off-sites and consulted on competency models. Their sweet spot is in the coaching and I have great confidence in their ability to interact with the top leadership team on sensitive and highly charged issues. They’re some of my favorite people to work with and I keep hiring them back.
Medical training never prepared me for the challenges of leading and managing a large clinical research team. 3D Leadership Group helped me strengthen my leadership capability – a tool I now carry with me alongside my stethoscope.
Sue has coached several high potential female leaders after they were selected to take on expanded leadership roles. The outcomes we are seeing from the coaching engagements are visible and sustainable. One significant shift has been increased confidence levels as a result of greater self-awareness, skill building, and a robust 360 feedback process which validated the many strengths of these leaders. We hope to continue working with 3D Leadership Group as we expand our leadership capabilities at NFPA.
We brought 3D Leadership in to help us identify and prioritize our needs for leadership development and then to work with us to address those issues. Their thorough approach on the front end gave us a high level of confidence that we were emphasizing the areas that would have the greatest impact on ImmunoGen’s evolving business and leadership needs. We have worked well together through the assessment process which then led to a long-term development program to engage our full management organization around the skills we will need as we continue to grow.
Angie has coached several high potential leaders and these engagements have been career-defining for them. Besides a thoughtful and effective coaching methodology, I believe what sets Angie apart is her business acumen and her ability to seamlessly integrate the daily business challenges of the client into the coaching discussion.
3D Leadership Group is an invaluable and trusted advisor to our entire management team. They have closely partnered with us to integrate business best practices throughout our small but growing business. Their expertise with the issues facing small businesses, coupled with their diligence in creating alignment between our vision, values and business infrastructure, has been instrumental in our success.
