Leadership Coaching


Executive & Leadership
Coaching

Executive coaching can have profound results for the individual and for an entire leadership team. The typical format is one-on-one for a specific project, skill set, or time frame, but it can also include working with a company's or organization's entire leadership team on an ongoing basis to help resolve problems or take the organization in a direction over time. A coach will be able to look at situations objectively and give guidance and instruction where it is best needed.

 

Executive and leadership coaching can be used to bring new managers and leaders up to speed in an organization and help them prepare for the challenges of leading others in the organization. A coach can also be utilized by a board of directors to help facilitate communication on the board level or build unity around an organization's common core concepts. An executive and leadership coach will be able to work with the individual or team to help both grow in the skills needed for better future results.

  • New leaders and managers sometimes struggle to find a balance when they start leading the people who used to be peers. A coach can help bring clarity to new roles and to give guidance on how to start and structure a new relationship and culture.

  •  Leadership is a constant learning experience; however, having a sounding board and coach can help make the transition positive and speed up the learning curve to a positive and productive relationship with others in the company.

  • Facilitating change in an organization through management can be an excellent way to change the culture in an organization. An executive leadership coach can work with a senior leader or leadership team to develop the skills and systems to bring about change in an individual, department, or entire company.

Executive & Leadership
Coaching Scenarios
  • A new leader is promoted in the organization who has the technical skills but needs help in the people and cultural sides of leadership.

  • A small business is growing and the leader is not sure how to make the transition from owner and day-to-day-worker to strategic leader working on the business and not in the business.

  • There is a concern by a board or CEO that one of the middle or upper managers is not where they would like them to be and need a seasoned leader to guide and direct their performance.

  • A leader is transferred or promoted to a new team and does not have the connection that they are used to having or the new team is not responding to the leader.  A coach can help assess the situation and suggest changes or skills to help align the leader and the team around a common vision and core principles.

  • The next generation has taken on the family business and struggles to make it their own while preserving the culture that was successful in the past.  A coach is able to walk with them through the transition and into the future working with the leader and company to find the balance between past and future.
