What is Executive Coaching, and how can it help your business?
Consulting augments gaps in leader knowledge, whereas coaching emphasizes the transfer of knowledge and professional wisdom from expert to learner.
As business leaders face the challenge to both deliver short term performance results and develop skills to think and act deeply amid often new and complex leadership issues, they often need support. This support can come from outside the organization and can help ensure timely leadership development. By having an experienced adviser, who has a depth of knowledge and prior demonstrated results on these topics, allows the learning curve to be shortened, delivering both performance and organizational learning simultaneously. It is our intent to work ourselves out of a project – to achieve success with the client both on results and development of their internal bench strength.
Typical project goals include:
- Benchmarking of critical tasks and objectives
- Executive and team alignment
- Leadership style gaps and team gaps
- Peer and 360-degree feedback techniques
- Metric and goal setting
- 1×1 support and mentoring
We work with each client and situation to choose the most qualified coach and develop clear milestone targets and a development plan that meets both the at-hand business needs as well as develops expertise in the individual and the team.
