Executive Coaching

“a strategic process adding value to the people being coached and to the bottom line of the organisation’”

‘Marshall Goldsmith’

We believe the process of understanding others starts with knowing yourself. To us ‘Executive Coaching’ is the discipline of working one-to-one with professionals to significantly develop their talent, skills, understanding and awareness.

Together we will work on the things that are important to you, for example;

  • performance and financial targets being met more quickly and efficiently
  • improved levels of employee retention and satisfaction
  • increased creativity around problem-solving and better decision making
  • leaders being poised and ready to deal with the demands arising from a rapidly changing business climate

“Employers are shocked at how high their ROI numbers are for coaching.”
Alastair Robertson, Manager of worldwide leadership development, Accenture

In terms of personal benefits, executive coaching can:

  • significantly reduce stress levels and burnout as leaders make use of their executive coach as an objective and non-judgemental third party or sounding board with whom they can offload, reflect and talk through any work or work-life balance issues. It is all too true that the more senior you become, the lonelier you can feel, and an executive coach can offer a valuable and entirely confidential support
  • provide the opportunity for honest, open and candid dialogue – without damaging the individual’s self-worth – and a clarity of view/insight which it is often difficult for those inside the organisation to achieve. By so doing, they are better able to recognise their own thinking and behaviour, get to grips with any discrepancies between how others see them and they see themselves and start to engage in positive behaviour change and a shift in mindset
  • result in greater engagement with work, more energy and improved job satisfaction and heightened confidence as leaders recognise what they are good at and begin to address the challenges and capitalise upon the opportunities they are facing, by finding and drawing upon their own internal resources
  • enable successful employees to develop the necessary skills for leading others, resulting in a better understanding of how to inspire, manage and motivate staff, improved team performance, effective management and maintenance of performance during periods of rapid change, greater clarity around priorities, improved delegation and a renewed passion for team development and management
  • drastically improve communication skills – be it talking one to one, managing a meeting, presenting to a group or addressing an audience company-wide. Through coaching, a leader can better understand their impact, how their behaviour aids or prevents their message from being heard, received and understood and what changes they might make to improve
  • elicit a high commitment to personal change and development and an increase in the employee’s satisfaction as they recognise the investment their company is making in them by providing executive coaching. This, in itself, can add to confidence and energy levels and help to create a sense of balance and reduction in pressure. It may also provide clarity over career direction/decisions
  • help normalise difficult working relationships and enhance other important business relationships

If you want to develop key individuals, create new leaders and effective people managers, get new employees up to speed and on board, manage return to work and accelerate performance in specific personnel, Executive Coaching should be part of your plan.
