Quadrant 4 is the space in which leaders are inspired to create step

change. Drawing upon the solid foundation of development from

the previous three quadrants, leaders possess the insight, confidence,

and capabilities to make significant change happens. In Quadrant 4,

leaders trust their own inner knowing that something new is possible

and they learn to draw upon their broad array of capabilities,

like symphony conductors, in order to bring their ideas to life.

Quadrant 4 is truly transformational. Leaders learn to step into their

own power. They take risks. They make mistakes. They sometimes

end up traveling in directions that they never expected. They learn

to trust themselves. Ultimately, they forge their own unique style of

leadership by stepping out into new territory.

Most clients don’t set Quadrant 4 goals as they initiate coaching.

Quadrant 4 goals are often formed as a natural outgrowth of a

client’s development and experiences in the earlier quadrants. Clare

did not set off to lead her team to create a new integrated solution;

she just arrived at that opportunity through her work to become a

better leader. As a natural extension of that work, she saw an opportunity

that she could not walk away from without feeling as if she

had let herself and her team down.When she stepped up to take on

that challenge, she advanced clearly into Quadrant 4. Like Clare,

most clients find themselves invited into Quadrant 4 through their

own desire to create what they perceive to be possible in the world.

Whether they are going after a new market or shifting an approach

to something that is tried and true, Quadrant 4 is the space for original

action. As a result, the goals that clients pursue in Quadrant 4

are often as unique as the person who crafts them. Some examples

of Quadrant 4 goals include the following:

_ Start a new venture

_ Make an innovative change to something that already exists,

such as taking a new approach to marketing or client

development

_ Inspire a team to take on a challenging goal

_ Integrate an artform or other creative endeavor into one’s work

_ Open up a new market opportunity

Whatever the goal, there is an element of transforming something

in a unique way and being transformed into a stronger, more confident

leader in the process.
