Executive Coaching is a one-on-one experience tailored to your professional needs and goals.
Even top business leaders have their blindspots. It’s a part of being human, but inconvenient or even plain risky for those with a lot of responsibility.
The mounting pressure on today’s executives threatens to suffocate organizational development as CEOs and the executive team tackle greater accountability, visibility and constant technological and sociological developments.
Executive-level leaders face unique challenges; they confront a myriad of issues, uncertainties, and demands every single day. The decisions and actions of these leaders affect shareholders, customers, and employees, so they must work hard to satisfy competing demands—a difficult task even under the best of circumstances. With everything there is for senior-level leaders to do and consider, the need to help them maximize their leadership effectiveness is more critical than ever. No matter how talented, experienced, or knowledgeable these leaders may be, the nature of their work requires that they continue to develop their leadership skills so they can perform at peak levels.
Here are some skills that you can develop during the Executive Coaching sessions.
Communication effectiveness includes verbal, written, nonverbal and digital. This pillar emphasizes skills like:
> Active listening
> Nonverbal communication
> Email etiquette
Your resulting communication style will be more intentional and congruent with your leadership brand.
Emotionally intelligent leaders can identify these feelings and use them as a powerful tool to enhance working relationships. Research proves EI (emotional intelligence) is more relevant than IQ (intellectual quotient) and technical skills combined. Executive Coaching in this area helps you recognize emotions as signals, and establish organizing principles to maintain your best self. Areas covered include:
> Identifying emotions as they arise, and becoming aware of how they govern our interactions
> Discovering how our unfiltered reactions appear to others
> Gaining a heightened attentiveness to and command over social situations
> How to manage yourself before managing others
Increasing emotional intelligence improves relationships and the navigation of complex social situations.
Through coaching, you’ll learn to first see yourself as others see you, and then explore the factors that can influence their perception. Coaching may cover topics like:
> How your personal posture, stance, and mannerisms affect your brand
> Social expectations
> Nuances of professional etiquette from board meetings to business lunches
> The psychological drivers that affect actions, choices and ultimately, reputation
As you explore your executive presence and discover new tools, you’ll find it easier to build and maintain trust with clients, partners, and your team.
You’ve likely developed a signature leadership style. Whether you’re taciturn or aggressive, hands-off or elbows-deep, leadership development provides opportunities to learn new skills and empower your team to reach peak performance. I will help you identify key areas for improvement, including:
> Strengthening relationships and building trust with your team
> Generating and maintaining excitement for your work
> Initiating goal-setting and metrics for subordinate development
> Mediating conflict and aligning disparate points of view
Leadership development coaching can dramatically improve your relationship with your team – and yourself.
Executive Coaching is the opportunity to accelerate leadership development and to objectively treat different complex challenges. If you want to invest in yourself or you want to bring your executive team to the next level, Executive Coaching it’s the perfect next step.
