Leadership Development Services
At Development First LLC, we provide coaching, consultation, facilitation, and curriculum for corporate clients of all sizes.
Here is how Development First LLC helped organizations to achieve their performance objectives.
Coaching, for you, may be an underutilized skill, perhaps because no one helped you understand how to coach.
You may have been doing a great job as an individual contributor and were selected to lead a group of people. By contrast, you could be an experienced people-leader. In both cases, you may never have received formal or informal training on how to lead people, let alone how to coach them.
A certified professional coach from the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching, which is accredited by the International Coach Federation, Walt can help people-leaders understand how to develop the skills of their people and achieve the best results by coaching them.

Walt’s experience allows him to transfer concepts in highly-competitive industries that offer tangible and intangible services. He brings that same experience to designing learning events and tools that help managers and individual contributors drive business results.
Walt has facilitated more than 1,000 face-to-face and virtual classroom sessions, focusing on developing skills.
