When to seek out an Executive/Business coach?


 

  • Merger & Acquisitions: Coaching can be crucial during  big changes in the organization change(i.e. adaptation to changes in the market or in the environment).
  • On Boarding: This is when an individual commences a new job or position. This helps the individual have a successful start in his/her first year.
  • Rounding: Coaching high potentials creates accelerated development, which assists the individual to move up to the next level or when there is a lack of clarity where one is heading. Our coaches can help your high performers acquire the necessary new skills as they move to positions of greater authority and responsibility.
  • Leadership Development - This is essential for both high potentials and senior leaders. It is an ongoing process for the success of individuals and organizations. One has not recognized his/her core strengths and how to leverage them.
  • A coach can facilitate and accelerate acquisition of new leadership skills such as delegating, efficient team management, public speaking, listening skills, charismatic presence, ect…).
  • Senior Team Coaching - Team building and leadership development start at the top. The senior team of an organization must be the example of what the brand of the organization is trying to achieve. It is important that all of the senior leaders are heading and supporting the same direction.
  • Performance Coaching - Sometimes there is a behavioral problem that needs to be ironed out. The individual may be very successful; but behaviours may need to be addressed.
  • We also prepare individual for international transition when assigned to different location (expatriation and relocation).
  • Coaching is one key tool for use by both organizations and individuals to help achieve success in this new reality. Coaching focuses on the individual as a whole, their needs and the work they want to do, balanced with the requirements of the organization at that time. Through increased planning and communication from both perspectives, coaching helps ensure talent flows to where it should be, ultimately promoting enduring shared success for the organization and individual.
  • Coaching results include retention, accelerated development, succession planning, skill development, integration, performance improvement, assessment, and reducing barriers and behavioral problems. Coaching is designed to provide clients with a greater capacity to produce results and a greater confidence in their ability to do so.

Our executive coaches are former senior business leaders with success coaching senior managers on business strategy, change management, leadership, culture change, people interaction skills and performance management that have led to the identification of key competencies that form an effective base for: assessing improvement areas, targeting action ideas and the preparation of development plans for the executive coaching process.
