Building Champions
Business Description:

When amazing athletes seek to become the best in the world, they find a coach who knows how to draw out the very best of what already lies within them. For over 20 years, Building Champions has been doing just that for business leaders. Many leadership development companies focus only on what leaders do – their behaviors. At Building Champions, we focus on the beliefs and the behaviors of great leadership, equipping and inspiring leaders to build dynamic cultures that drive organizational excellence and extraordinary results for all stakeholders.
Better People, Better Leaders
We believe that self-leadership comes before all other types of leadership. Backed by science and experience, we start by helping clients understand the stories they tell themselves that define their leadership effectiveness. Then, we help them build plans to live and lead with purpose so they can make an exponentially positive impact at work, in life and in their communities.
Real-World Experience
Our team of executive coaches brings the perfect combination of coaching knowledge and practical leadership experience. Having led successful careers and companies, they share their insights to help our clients achieve their biggest goals.
Built for Impact
With the heart of a boutique firm, we craft customized solutions to deliver meaningful ROI to our clients. And with over 20 coaches on staff, leveraging tools and processes developed over two decades, we have the ability to foster lasting impact at scale.

Executive Forum
Business Description:

Executive Forum helps organizations turn the “what” of leadership into “how” for their leaders. Our programs are practical, experiential, and time-phased—resulting in greater retention and tangible ROI. Our Leadership Pathway provides organizations a systematic approach to building leaders at every level.

At Executive Forum, we believe learning is enhanced when individuals are able to apply new skills to current real-world situations. Our leadership development offerings combine specific behaviors with a framework for using these new skills, giving participants the opportunity to become more comfortable in their roles and more confident in their new behavior.

Leadership is about facilitating understanding—whether it’s organizational goals and objectives, technical and regulatory processes, or how individual roles fit into the organization. A leader’s job is to help others understand and connect in order to engage. Great leaders are connectors.

Our approach to leadership emphasizes this connection through collaboration, self-awareness, and taking responsibility for the direction and development of others. By promoting successful professional and personal growth, agility, inclusion, and resilience, individual leaders are prepared for the future needs of the organization.

We believe leadership development is a strategic choice—whether the organizational focus is team building, individual skills, or executive coaching. It’s a commitment to the future that balances the need for action with the necessity for taking time to learn.

For over 30 years, we’ve worked with organizations throughout the Northwest to build strong leaders, manage change more effectively, and construct a more productive, engaged workforce. We assess requirements, evaluate solutions, and construct plans to develop leaders with the skills needed to motivate teams, discover new opportunities, and support sustainable success.
