Executive Coaching

Our certified executive coaches work one-on-one with your executives to help them identify blind spots, change behavior, overcome limiting beliefs, and improve leadership effectiveness.  To do this, our coaches use a four-phase approach.

 

Phase I: Assessment.  Coach collects data to understand the situation.  Data can include interviews with relevant stakeholders, a validated 360-degree assessment, and performance metrics.

 

Phase II: Design.  Coach designs appropriate coaching agenda based on the results of the Assessment Phase.

 

Phase III: Implementation.  Coach and client work together to improve results.  Results are tracked and measured.  Frequency and duration of meetings vary based on Client's appetite.

Phase IV: Follow up.  Coach provides ongoing follow up to ensure that results "stick."

 

Our typical client faces one of the following issues:

 

  • Gaining more influence in their organization.

  • Launching a new initiative.

  • Getting commitment and building alignment among their executive team.

  • Improving their business relationship with their boss.

  • Implementing difficult changes.

  • Growing their organization.

  • Improving their leadership skills as they ventured into new, unfamiliar areas.

  • Quickly gaining knowledge about new functions (e.g., marketing, finance) where they lacked experience.

  • Making a transition to a new role or organization.

  • Avoiding burn out and balancing work, family, hobbies, and health.

  • Making decisions with incomplete information.

  • Getting clarity about organizational strategy and direction.

  • Making improvements in response to negative feedback from colleagues.

 

Usually, our clients have good instincts about what to do and need someone to listen to their concerns, serve as a sounding board, debate with them, ask probing questions, and—when appropriate—to offer advice and insights.

 

Our executive coaches can help your leaders grow and improve performance, reduce or eliminate their blind spots and be open to constructive feedback, not only reducing the likelihood of failure, and premature burnout but also provide an atmosphere in which the executive can express fears, failures and dreams.  Smart CEOs and progressive organizations now realize the value of a good executive coach.
