Why executive coaching?
Shed your concept of how a leader “should” be and cultivate your own strengths
Shine brighter as you meet increasingly difficult challenges, find your next job, or move up to the next level in the organization
Find clarity, build momentum, and be an effective, inspiring leader for your team
If you are...
Serious about creating positive change in your professional life
Ready to get out of your comfort zone
Prepared to engage in honest self-reflection
Looking to achieve results within 3 months
Where are you now?
Where do you want to be?
What needs to happen to get there?
We'll establish the basics, clarify your needs, and get you one step closer to achieving your goals
We begin our partnership by establishing goals and outcomes. Then we work to objectively understand where you are now and what is required to succeed. Together we move forward towards your goal, uncovering strengths as well as barriers, and developing strategies, skills, and practices to realize your desired outcome. The more open you are to self-reflection and stepping out of your comfort zone, the more effective our work together will be. (More info on my approach and what to expect can be found in my interview with RocketHub.)
An engagement consists of one-hour sessions, held weekly or bi-weekly. Sessions are conducted in person, by phone or via video chat. You will have tasks to complete and practices to employ in between sessions.
The following components can be added to our coaching work to provide extra viewpoints and data. We will examine the results together, discuss implications, and use the discoveries to inform the direction of our coaching.
360-degree feedback: Want more insight into how you are perceived by others? I conduct one-on-one interviews with colleagues from different levels of the organization (direct reports, peers, management) and produce an anonymous summary of the feedback.
Shadowing: I shadow you on-site to observe interactions with direct reports, peers, and management during meetings and informal situations.
Strengths assessment: We use one of the many assessment tools available to establish your strengths and leadership profile.
