Coaching Amplified


New science and technology platform for mobile leader development

Randy_Marcove

Earlier this year, I was invited to advance my leadership skills by our company’s founder and CEO.  He introduced me to Dr. Matt Barney and his LeaderAmp program, and I have been thoroughly impressed.  

Specifically, the program commenced with a detailed self-assessment to identify my leadership strengths and areas that could be developed further.  Other key components to my development in his program were eCoaching and Journaling.  To the former:  always having direction/input/suggestions at my fingertips, and to the latter: notes and reflections of applied principles and their effects.  Having these resources were invaluable to the advancement of my leadership skills.
Additionally, Dr. Barney conducted weekly online group coaching sessions. These sessions followed agendas designed to deliver leadership skills such as persuasion, grit, and charisma.  These were interactive lessons where the group member’s personal experience and comments were always welcomed, discussed, and enhancing the lessons learned.
Lastly, I am very impressed with Dr. Barney’s intellect, as well as his instructional design.  He is able to convey his research, worldly knowledge, and expertise into a concise package that delivers practical tools and applications to develop/increase the intangible skills of leadership.  I am fortunate to have participated in such a fine and outstanding program! Randy S. Marcove, Client Partner, BMGI, USA

Swaroop Kumar

My initial reaction to LeaderAmp was 'wow! can I be a part of this?' Having practiced 'quantified self' through digital apps for fitness, LeaderAmp was welcoming for my leadership development. Self assessment, goal setting and 360 degree feedback from my relevant stakeholders are the highlights.
Daily e-coaching tips which are so relevant for my chosen area of development push me to stretch, followed by reflection through journaling made this process two way and most importantly the weekly group coaching directly from the founders helped me to make the best of both science & technology of LeaderAmp. With continuous support from LeaderAmp's mobile application and weekly online coaching, I grew my "Growth Mindset" several levels from 'Apprentice' to 'Expert'. 

I strongly recommend this for every leader who is serious about their self development. Swaroop Kumar, Management Student at XLRI - Xavier School of Management, India.

Impressive and very useful. So much of development when you're a leader can feel so personal and yet it needs to be so networked and socially supported. Your app manages to hit both sweet spots very well!  Mandy Chooi - Global Head of Talent & Learning, ING Bank, Amsterdam, Netherlands

LeaderAmp is doing really important work. It's best likened to Bill Gates more scientific, rigorous approach to philanthropy, but Leaderamp is taking that approach to understanding what works and what doesn't in Leadership development. Take note because it's an important part of the future of leadership development. Don Jones - Founder and President, exper!ence it inc, Toronto, Canada

As a psychologist coaching senior leaders for over 20 years I have seen numerous technologies designed to assist with leadership development. Most are well marketed but do not have a solid research base and therefore I do not trust their efficacy. My experience with the LeaderAmp app is that it has been designed from a rigorous evidence base, dovetails well into a coaching framework, will be extremely easy for leaders to use, provides an excellent support mechanism to assist leaders to comply with journaling reflection requirements and has useful information. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this app to leaders who want to continue to develop and to coaches who value resources that are well research.  Paul Martin - Organisational Development Psychologist, Assure Programs, Brisbane, Australia.

For more than 60 years, researchers have worked to improve and fine-tune the science of mental measurement (psychometrics). Dr. Barney’s work with LeaderAmp is one of the most novel, unique and exciting applications resulting from that body of work to date. Using state-of-the-art psychometric science, Dr. Barney is able to measure abstract leadership concepts with similar precision to measurements routinely taken in the physical sciences. Kenneth Royal, Ph.D. - Associate Professor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and Editor, Rasch Measurement Transactions

Patent pending innovations

LeaderAmp is the first expert system in the world to combine engineering-worthy measurement with mass-personalized coaching powered by the latest science.  This is crucial to

a) guide leaders toward appropriate developmental goals;

b) ensuring that our expert system's psychometrically calibrated coaching is neither too easy nor too hard for each unique leader; and

c) determining quarterly progress.

We calibrate our instruments to the style of each stakeholder, and remove this bias from the resultant information using a technique originally pioneered with clinical pathologists, and other forms of expert ratings.

And this is just the beginning of our innovations.
