Executive and Leadership Coaching
Executives and emerging leaders are faced with leading in a climate of rapid change and growing complexity. The skill set needed to navigate through this reality is significant. The environment in which they lead is shifting – higher rates of turnover, globalization, greater workplace diversity and all this while doing more with less. Charged with developing people, leaders must first model self-development. Executive and leadership coaching provides a space for honest feedback and dialogue that focuses on maximizing one’s potential and developing the creativity needed to thrive in the modern business environment.
Some areas that the executive coaching process can cover is:
- Transitioning into leadership
- Defining and articulating ones leadership style
- Defining leadership vision and goals and implement practical strategies to bring them to reality
- Develop greater leadership presence
- Improve executive communication and interpersonal skills
- Develop and enhance creative leadership skills
- Identify and move past “blind spots”
- Manage conflict effectively
A team functioning at its full potential is essential for an organization to be creative and competitive. Nothing can be more invigorating than when a team is working at its full potential. However, all too often employees are frustrated at the performance of their team. Many point to wasted meetings, unclear roles, team conflict, mediocre participation, broken or absent decision-making processes and a low level of commitment. We use two cutting edge tools, The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team and The Right Conversation to assess team performance and map out a process for team development.
Some of the areas that could be focused on during team coaching include.
- Elements of successful teams
- Assessment of team performance and team communication
- Clarification of team purpose, vision and roles
- Running effective team meetings
- Effective team decision-making
- Resolving team conflict
