What is Executive Coaching?

Executive coaching helps individuals in an organisation in a number of different ways:    

 

 

 

Where the coachee (the person to be coached) is preparing to transition, or has just transitioned into a new role
Coaching for Development

 

 
Where the coachee seeks to improve their overall performance in their current role, but the goals are not specific.
 Coaching for Performance 

           

Coaching for Skills
Where the coachee seeks to improve specific skills, for example, chairing meetings, giving presentations, or delegation.

 

 

 

 

           

Coaching for the Coachee's Agenda
Where the coachee needs support on the most
pressing problem or opportunity that faces
them at the time of coaching.

Although a coaching assignment can be classified into any of the four groups above, the needs of the client are often varied and wide ranging. Typical topics for coaching include: 

 COMMUNICATION

 In our high tech world with multiple modes of communication, it is often the simplest form, face to face, that gives us the most difficulty. Effective performance relies on effective communication, and knowing how to flex your style depending on the situation you find yourself in is key.

Leadership skills are vital in today's organisations, not just for the 'leaders', but for every member of the team, as everyone is empowered to innovate, make decisions and lead in their area of expertise. Some people may be born leaders, but everyone can learn the skills required to make them an effective leader in their role.

LEADERSHIP

 CONFIDENCE

A lack of confidence can hold people back from contributing fully to the organisation. The causes are many and varied, but once a client identifies and understands them, they can free themselves to unleash their full potential.

Conflict is a major cost to organisations through lost productivity, absence, increased employee turnover, and even dismissal. It needs dealing with quickly and effectively to prevent escalation. Many people try to avoid dealing with conflict; few realise that there is a positive side hidden within it - innovation, better understanding of people, personal growth, and resolution of long standing problems.

TIME MANAGEMENT

Are you spending more and more time at work , but able to get on top of it all? Is there always too much to do and too little time to do it in? There are many different ways to ensure you're focusing on the 'essential few tasks rather than the 'trivial' many, to give you back control of your time.

 

One certainty in business is the uncertainty of change, and the likelihood is that the future holds more change for us rather than less. It is important that we understand what change is, recognise what it's effects are, and what strategies we can use to ensure that we reap the benefits.

 CHANGE

WORK - LIFE

Sometimes work can be all consuming, and we lose our sense of perspective about the other priorities in our lives. Increasing our self awareness opens up opportunities to alter the balance of our lives back in favour of all the parts that are important to us.

Stress comes in many forms; an inability to think, indecision, lack of sleep, poor moods, even illness, and it makes us difficult to be with. It's not possible to leave it at work either, and so our family and friends are affected too.
