Executive coaching is about momentum, identifying goals, removing obstacles, generating options, planning action and succeeding with the plan. By highlighting successes and learning from mistakes, the process brings about an enhanced level of personal effectiveness.
Through a series of specially designed sessions, you work with your executive coach to achieve your goals. The coach helps you identify and leverage your individual talents and strengths in the workplace. The result is that you operate more effectively and confidently and contribute to a stronger bottom line for the company.
How does this work?
Personal abilities: Executive coaching helps you learn and develop abilities such as self-awareness – understanding how others perceive you and being able to perceive yourself. With more self-awareness, you are able to identify and correct unhelpful behavioral traits or thoughts that are limiting your performance or leading to conflicts.
Self-management skills: You learn how to deal effectively with stress, make constructive use of feedback you receive from others, manage your time and set goals. You can also develop better working habits that result in more job satisfaction and higher self-esteem.
Behavioral abilities: You may have excellent technical expertise, but were not really taught important personal and interpersonal skills. Executives sometimes try to make do with what they have learned randomly through experience. But wouldn't you benefit from learning what has been demonstrated to work best? Improving your leadership skill can dramatically enhance your performance, results and job satisfaction.
