Craig Stanton, an Executive Leadership Coach and organizational development consultant, has been coaching leaders since 2010.  His approach to coaching is informed by years of experience supporting individuals at all levels of personal growth, from emerging leaders to C-suite executives.  His practice is informed by developmental theory, and typically includes partnering with clients to see their own situation more clearly, and support them in identifying behaviors that accelerate or detract from personal effectiveness.  His style is a blend of unusual honesty and curiosity, warmth, deep listening, powerful questioning, and non-judgmental connection. 


As a faculty member in the Georgetown University’s Institute for Transformational Leadership (Coaching Program Director of Assessment & Co-Director of Curriculum), and previous faculty member in the Rutgers and American University Coaching Certificate programs, he is also committed to teaching and training others to use the foundational skills of coaching. 


Craig works with clients across the U.S. and Europe (in the U.K., Belgium, and Russia), and most recently in South Korea. He is typically engaged to work with leaders who are actively seeking to expand their capacity for managing complexity and pursuing personal growth and outcomes in new areas, high potential leaders, leaders who have assumed a new position and are in transition, and individuals who are seeking support to meet the demands of their current situation. His clients have included: Facebook, Google, Luminis Healthcare, Disney, Penske, Dahlberg Global Development Advisors, and 10+ Federal agencies.
