Executive Coaching

To help you understand how we use Executive Coaching, here are some definitions that explain the possibilities that can be achieved through this leader development process -:

"Executive coaching is the process of equipping people with the tools, knowledge, and opportunities they need to develop themselves and become more effective." 1

"Executive coaching is an experiential and individualised leader development process that builds a leader's capability to achieve short and long term organisational goals. It is conducted through one-on-one interactions, driven by data from multiple perspectives, and based on mutual trust and respect. The organisation, an executive, and the executive coach work in partnership to achieve maximum impact." 2

"Executive coaching is a formal engagement in which a qualified coach works with an organisational leader in a series of dynamic, confidential sessions designed to establish and achieve clear goals that will result in improved business effectiveness, both for the individual and the organisation. A good coach helps executives develop clarity of purpose and focus on action." 3

Management Coaching

Management Coaching is specific to a particular management role.  The coach will focus on what the manager is trying to achieve and by the setting of goals, ensure that the manager gets to their destination.

Working with a business focused coach ensures that managers achieve effectiveness through clarity and focus on the outcomes they are trying to achieve.

Management coaching is a personalised management development process, that focuses on the individual and their individual needs.

Working ON their area of responsibility can produce performance improvements, which can be difficult, when on a daily basis they are operating IN their area of responsibility.

Team Coaching

Coaching a team is effective in ensuring that the team are aware of the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for them to achieve success. 

As with one to one coaching, the team has to know what it is trying to achieve and is able to visualise the road to success.

Our team coaching process includes -:

  • The setting of goals and outcomes for the team
  • Establishing the ground rules
  • Highlighting what is working well and areas that are not working so well
  • The knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to achieve the team goals
  • Areas of responsibility and functionality
  • Effective lines of open and frank communication
  • The outcome picture, i.e. what does success look like.
