Senior/Executive level coaching

Executives need ‘thinking spaces’ in which they can step back from the pressures and be able to work out what’s important to them and what they need to focus on.

Some of the areas coaching can help you with are:

  • Developing the talent and potential of your leadership
  • Improving the performance and effectiveness of your managers
  • Significantly improve the culture and therefore motivation of your people
  • Facilitate change in attitude and behaviour to ensure your people deliver the desired results
  • Build effective teams that ultimately contribute to bottom line improvements
  • Manage the transition arising from internal promotions
  • Provide a sounding board for senior management
  • Tackle deep rooted patterns of behaviour which may inhibit growth

My coaching style is client-centred, solutions focused and success orientated. As a Director I work in high-achieving organisational cultures and although never directive when coaching I still possess the essence of an ‘achievement’ style. I admit to wanting ‘to succeed’ and that is precisely what I want for my clients….for them to succeed too.

Profound empathy, active listening and focused questioning/discussion are the three cornerstones of my coaching. Additionally, as appropriate, I may use a number of developmental resources i.e. Feedback instruments, psychometric testing etc, to help provide us with an even greater insight about you and your relationship with others.

A typical coaching programme would involve a minimum of six coaching sessions lasting no longer than two hours each. Prior to the sessions commencing each senior leader/manager is asked to reflect on coaching outcomes and objectives. These are then used to create a coaching plan which is utilised to track progress and maintain focus.
