Executive Coaching

The Situation

Coaching is a stimulating, disciplined process that helps leaders achieve results. It allows clients to examine their work in a strategic context and refocuses their efforts for maximum impact. Coaching helps many types of leaders, including those who:

  • Have technical skills and are learning the people side of leadership
  • Have a tactical focus and are learning the strategic side of business, or
  • Need a boost to reach or return to high performance.

Our Solution

Coaching is an excellent tool that develops the capabilities and unlocks the potential of leaders. Coaching works because it provides leaders with two resources:

  • Real-time, one-on-one attention to immediate challenges, and
  • Time and space outside of daily pressures to think and reflect on strengths, development needs and lessons learned.

Coaching Process

Even though each coaching case is unique, our coaching process follows the steps below:

  1. Understand the Person We start with an assessment of the client to help identify the individual’s strengths and areas for improvement. Various tools can be used at this step, including interviews, 360° Feedback, personality tools or ability measures.
  2. Create the Coaching Plan The assessment information is reviewed with the client to understand current strengths and development needs. Next the coach and the client discuss where the client wants to go. Goals for the coaching relationship are set, and the coaching plan is created.
  3. Coach and Develop Talent Coaching follows this plan and typically lasts for six months. After six months, progress is reviewed with the client to determine if goals have been met and whether to move forward with further coaching.
