Supporting your professional growth
Leaders today are expected to be multi-talented. They have to lead and motivate their team, manage complex projects with tight deadlines, think and act politically within the company, manage the daily business in between countless meetings, develop new strategies, and always have an open ear for employees, superiors and management colleagues.
Balancing all these competing demands requires not only professional expertise, but also mental and emotional capabilities. This is where executive coaching comes in, by helping you develop and entrench the behaviours, skills and mindset needed for impactful, sustainable leadership.
The Purpose of Leadership Coaching
The results of coaching are naturally very individual and depend on your personal goals and challenges. Following are some examples of the results and benefits our coaching can deliver:
Our coaching helps you build your presence and impact as a business leader. This includes consistently dealing with superiors, colleagues and employees in a constructive and goal-oriented manner. We guide you on your journey from boss to leader.
Often, executive coaching is about the ability to relax quickly and in a targeted manner. You will learn effective methods to manage your personal energy level in a focussed way, resulting in increased satisfaction and happiness.
One of the “side effects” of coaching is often a noticeable increase in efficiency. This is the logical consequence of more inner clarity, focus, assertiveness and clearer communication.
Clarity and Focus
Through executive coaching, you achieve clarity around your personal goals. Examining your own values enables you to develop effective strategies for achieving your goals.
Depending on the specific situation, a result of coaching can be a more relaxed and confident handling of any conflicts and difficult situations you might encounter as a manager (e.g. employee conversations).
The Benefits of Executive
In many companies it is now considered best practice to hire a coach for executives. From the perspective of the coachee and the company, integrating a professional and experienced executive development coach has several advantages:
Individual coaching allows for a focussed approach, resulting in improvement in key competencies within a short period of time
The executive benefits from our clear and undistorted external perspective
Our coaches bring many years of experience as executives in well-known, respected companies
Based on our experience, we know how to support our clients most effectively in achieving their desired professional development
We are effective sparring partners who recognise the importance of building trust and taking a goal-oriented approach
As a rule, we start with a telephone conversation to better understand your needs Thereafter, the first coaching session lasts about two hours. It can take place either in our offices or on your premises. In the first session, we jointly define the goals for the coaching engagement and already work tangibly on them.
Depending on the situation, a coaching engagement can sometimes be completed within two or three sessions. In other cases, a longer-term approach is recommended in order to entrench the desired changes.
