Executive Coaching


Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching is a partnership, built on mutual trust, which involves exploring the client’s strengths, limitations, and values to increase self-awareness. Building on enhanced self-awareness, the coach and the client co-create and co-manage a plan of action to leverage strengths, minimize limitations, and promote enhanced self-management. The goals are to help the client perform more effectively, build better relationships, and have a more positive influence on his/her organization and community.

Especially considering today’s competitive business climate and tough economic times, increasing your personal effectiveness and the effectiveness of your key people are some of the best investments that you can make in your company’s future.

Possible areas for improvement include:

  • Leading Effectively
  • Communicating Effectively
  • Making Better Decisions
  • Improving Interpersonal Effectiveness (at home as well as work)
  • Increasing Team-Playing Ability
  • Managing Time Effectively
  • Handling Disagreements and Conflicts Effectively
  • Communicating Assertively
  • Creating a Better Work-Life Balance…and many more!

The general strategy involves:

  • Individual Assessment (personality, values, leadership capabilities, thinking skills, personal and career interests and goals)
  • Organizational Environment Assessment (organizational mission, visions, values, guiding principles, role expectations and goals, support systems, key stakeholders, and potential barriers)
  • Analysis of Strengths & Developmental Opportunities
  • Co-Creation of a Developmental Action Plan
  • Ongoing Assessment of Progress and Goal-Setting for the Future

I would be pleased to work with you personally, and/or with any other member(s) of your management team that would benefit from enhanced personal effectiveness.
