EZRA AND LHH REDEFINE EXECUTIVE COACHING WITH LAUNCH OF EZRAX



LHH, a global business unit of the Adecco Group and leading talent solutions provider, moves to deliver its executive coaching services virtually through EZRAx.


"Our vision for success is developing leaders who are agile, collaborative, empathetic and effective in the ways today's workforce needs them to be. Leaders today have a lot riding on their shoulders and are responsible for not just business outcomes, but the wellbeing and livelihoods of the people they employ and communities they operate in. - Nick Goldberg, co-founder and CEO of EZRA.

EZRA, a leading virtual coaching provider powered by top talent solutions company LHH, has announced that it will now deliver all LHH executive coaching services through its new, executive coaching platform, EZRAx. This move makes it possible to scale access to world-class, individualized leadership coaching in real-time.


Launched in 2019 as an incubator in the LHH ecosystem, EZRA was created to democratize coaching beyond the C-suite. After growing from delivering just 12 sessions per month to 15,000 in the three years since its inception, EZRA's outcomes-based model will now power all executive coaching previously offered by LHH through its modern, high-touch executive coaching experience for leaders navigating today's fast-shifting landscape.


"LHH is in the business of change and to help transform organizations across the globe, we must continuously innovate and evolve our service offerings. From the start we believed in EZRA's mission to democratize coaching and since launching EZRA within our walls it's been proven beyond doubt that its model is the future of professional coaching," said John Morgan, President of LHH Career Transition & Mobility and Leadership Development.


EZRAx, EZRA's executive coaching offering, has among the highest industry standards for coaches operating on the platform, working exclusively with those who are ICF Professional Certified Coaches (PCC), have completed a minimum of 500 coaching hours, hold 5 years of executive coaching experience and 20 years of industry experience in senior management roles and have been field-tested in LHH's ecosystem. EZRAx's highly tailored, convenient and metrics-based delivery model is already helping organizations boost employee loyalty by 77%, retention rates by 14%, promotion rates by 11% and overall managerial performance improvement by 58%.


"Our vision for success is developing leaders who are agile, collaborative, empathetic and effective in the ways today's workforce needs them to be," said Nick Goldberg, co-founder and CEO of EZRA. "Leaders today have a lot riding on their shoulders and are responsible for not just business outcomes, but the wellbeing and livelihoods of the people they employ and communities they operate in. EZRAx exists to make sure executives, as well as every other person they'll impact day-to-day, can truly thrive. We know that won't happen if leaders keep running an old playbook and through our work with LHH, we're unlocking greater potential in them to drive the levels of change people are looking for in the workforce and beyond."


For a seamless experience, EZRAx allows users:

  • Unlimited coaching sessions that can run up to 90 minutes

  • Access to reports and dashboards that map data-backed progress to-date

  • Tripartite meetings so third-party stakeholders and managers can be brought in to align on goals
