Coaching process

Who do we work with

Typically you may be a senior executive assigned a new position of greater scope and responsibility.  Your leadership style, behaviour and mindset needs developing to ensure you have the capacity to meet the greater challenges of your role.

Or you may be need to manage multiple stakeholders and learn new tools and strategies within a complex social, political and rapidly changing environment.

Or you may be struggling with relationship issues or personal or legal situations, stress and overwhelm that require strategies and support to manage while keeping up with challenging demands of your job.

Process

The first month involves initial meetings with the coachee to understand history, and create a working relationship and outcomes are established.  In-person interviews with 8- 10 people are conducted with colleagues, peers, direct reports,  Board, or senior executive and family.

Common themes emerging from the interviews, including both strengths, areas for development, reliability, integrity. Two or three areas are chosen to focus on.
