Executive Coaching supports senior leaders in leveraging their assets by refining these skills and enhancing their leadership performance. It is a confidential partnership between a professional coach and an executive dedicated to personal and professional growth.
There are many areas executives may focus on in their coaching conversations. Some examples include:
- Clarifying thinking on complex strategy or people issues.
- Communicating effectively with a wide range of audiences so messages get heard.
- Testing ideas or reasoning, using the coach as a safe, confidential sounding board.
- Developing a success strategy as a new executive in the first 90 days on the job or honing skills as a seasoned leader.
Whether face to face, or by telephone, coaching creates a safe, confidential environment, with well-developed listening skills, powerful questions, and a sense of humour. Using the executives’ real-life situations, the coaching discussion is fluid and interactive and enables the person to come away from these discussions with practical next steps to implement right away.
