What is executive coaching?
Executive coaching is a process of developing a relationship in which the coach and the client engage in purposeful dialogue based upon rapport and trust. The coach establishes credibility and chemistry with her clients by building trust through openness regarding thier challenges and giving coherent explanations for the coaching principles and techniques during the coaching process.
A good coach asks powerful questions. Our coaches use their intuition and instincts guide them to ask questions which get at the heart of the issues, while respecting the client and creating a safe and fair atmosphere for openness. The coaches employ Positive Direct Communication, a model of communication honesty and respect, during which the client feels understood and heard, while receiving specific feedback.
The coach’s questions unearth what is valuable to the client. The value and power of the coaching dialogue lies primarily in the coach’s ability to question and clarify.
Usually, the executive coaching process begins with the client taking a personality assessment. Further assessments may be recommended during the coaching process.
Executive coaching is confidential. The client may discuss his coaching with others, but our coaches will not reveal, even to the company who hired them, the subject or content of the coaching sessions with the executive client. This policy supports the trust and rapport of the coaching relationship, during which the executive may speak freely about his concerns and challenges.
We do not reveal individual coaching client’s names. However, we do list companies we have worked with, if appropriate.
Why do executives seek coaching?
Let’s face it, it’s lonely at the top and the stakes are high. It’s risky to reveal personal challenges and issues to other management team members in-house. Because of this, executives often feel isolated and overwhelmed.
Executive coaching is confidential and geared to serving the executive client’s needs exclusively. Through the coaching dialogue, executive clients learn to stop worrying and start taking constructive action, with the guidance and counsel of their coach.
Executive coaching works. It offers clients an opportunity to review options, explore ideas, hone in on essentials, test values, and create a vision unhampered by the usual constraints. Most importantly, it ends analysis paralysis and encourages courage.
Why do teams need facilitated coaching?
Teams need coherence, direction and drive. They must operate using an effective cooperation model.
Ineffective teams wallow in finger pointing, hiding the ball, ineffective competition and hidden agendas.
Teams need coaching. Whether it comes from their team leader or from a professional coach, facilitated coaching enhances effectiveness. We teach teams, and team leaders, how to motivate members to operate using cooperative dialogue and interpersonal motivation skills for enhanced team dynamics.
