EXECUTIVE COACHING FOR BUSINESS LEADERS

“Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.”— Norman Schwarzkopf

executivecoach_300x212Leading is tough work.  At some point, all leaders need a trusted sounding board for their ideas, challenges, and sometimes, fears. Coaching deepens an awareness of your unique strengths as a foundation for greater effectiveness. Insight into how some behaviors can limit effectiveness motivates individuals to make changes. We support this change in a safe, confidential environment.

As executive coaches we are focused on your goals and committed to helping you achieve them.  These goals can include career transition, interpersonal and professional communication, performance management, developing executive presence, dealing effectively with conflict, and building an effective team within an organization.

We employ five research-based steps to help you

  • assess your strengths and challenges
  • determine your desired outcomes
  • step up to a higher level of success and contribution
  • move you out of your comfort zone and explore new ways of being
  • measure progress and create a framework for continued individual development

Effective leadership is a choice; it is intentional. Exceptional leadership comes from building upon those choices to develop a behavioral repertoire of excellence. In short – Leadership Excellence is an Intentional Choice.

“A leader has to be committed to his own personal development in order to change the culture of an organization.” – Richard Barrett

Executive Coaching

As an individual advances to levels of higher authority, truthful feedback becomes more difficult to obtain. An effective coach serves as an objective third party, a truth-teller, to help an executive focus on his or her strengths and to recognize and eliminate limiting behaviors. Because we are external coaches, we provide a type of conversation partner not available within the organization. Importantly, we relieve leaders of concerns about the confidentiality risk of sharing their issues within the organization.

Individual & High-Potential Coaching

We provide individual coaching in two key areas. We assist individuals who need to bridge performance gaps for greater effectiveness and we help high-potential individuals in their development of leadership behaviors. Our process helps to deepen an individual’s awareness of their unique strengths as a foundation for practical behavioral change and personal development. As executive coaches we provide support for that change in a safe, confidential environment.

Team Coaching

Top-performing teams are built by each team member performing a role that reflects their unique, inherent strengths. Team members are guided in the development of their individual effectiveness and impact as they learn to take action as individuals.  Additionally each team member learns to utilize the sum of the team’s parts to bridge performance gaps and maximize team impact. By recognizing team strengths, potential weaknesses and untapped potential, the entire team learns to adapt accordingly to meet organizational goals and deliver peak performance.
