EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP COACHING
10 REASONS TO PARTNER WITH AN EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP COACH
- You’ve inherited a new team and want to get off to a great start and/or change direction.
- You want to accelerate your career and/or shift it.
- You love your leadership role and are striving to be the leader you know you can be.
- You are enjoying your leadership role far less than you had hoped or expected.
- You want to improve the culture in your team/organization.
- You have trouble transforming conflicts into positive outcomes.
- You want to navigate the “politics” of your organization successfully.
- You are brilliant in your area of expertise, got promoted to a leadership role, and find yourself unprepared to lead people.
- You received feedback that there are some blocks getting in the way of being as effective as you need to be.
- You want to do a great job without working 24/7.
IF ONE OR MORE OF THESE ARE TRUE FOR YOU, LET’S TALK!
Executive Leadership Coaching IS about discovery, learning, and exploring what you believe about your own leadership potential and moving toward those things in strategic ways. It is about helping you to enhance your effectiveness and truly enjoy your work.
Executive Leadership Coaching is NOT therapy or counseling. While our approach is holistic and takes into account how you came to be in this moment, our coaching focus will be on the professional results you wish to achieve.
Today’s financial and social realities, the challenge of retaining top talent, and the imperative to lead with grace while producing positive results…all make top notch executive coaching even greater and more urgent than ever.
The art of leadership is more than mastering the ability to wield power and influence over others. It is a set of learned human interaction skills that lead to improved performance, increased engagement and productivity, more opportunities for service, and reductions in costly and ineffective practices. It requires an awareness of one’s impact on others, emotional intelligence, and being mindful of your actions and behaviors.
The science of leadership is as important as the art. Neither functions well without the other. The science of leadership requires focused alignment of mission, vision, and values, the right data, processes, policies, structures, and methodologies to support and advance the vision and mission. We need to fully understand why and what we are doing (mission) and where we’re going (vision) in order to get there.

IF ONE OR MORE OF THESE SOUNDS LIKE A WINNER TO YOU, LET’S TALK!
There are THREE PHASES in building a successful coaching relationship and several steps within those phases. While some of these may happen within the same conversation or get revisited, the Step list below provides the general structure for the overall “arc” of the process we will explore together.
PHASE I – Setting Up For Success
STEP 1: Fit – our first conversation is learning about each other to ensure we are comfortable moving forward with our coaching partnership. It’s about connecting on both a human and professional level, thereby understanding how we might work together.
STEP 2: Expectations and Goals – we will agree upon clear mutual expectations and what I like to call our “coaching contract” – or how we will treat one another, our “ground rules” and what specific outcomes you want from this coaching partnership.
STEP 3: The Situation – this is when we explore the situation (s) on which you wish to focus, learn why this is important to you, and determine what outcome (s) you want. Choices will be made about what actions you will choose to take to reach your desired goal.
PHASE II – Digging In
STEP 4: Self-Discovery – this requires a personal inventory that may include various instrumentation and possibly anonymous 360 feedback to give you a fuller picture of your leadership opportunities and challenges. This is also an opportunity to clarify your personal mission, vision, and values, and to learn about perceptions and beliefs.
In this phase, we will work with your motivations – only those where you have high clarity and high commitment – identify your strengths and weaknesses as they relate to the situation you’ve identified. Assuming you are doing your work in our coaching partnership, you will see positive results; your heightened awareness and focus will quickly impact the way you make decisions and choices.
PHASE III – Getting it Done
STEP 5: Charting the Course – we will work on specific actions or inactions that impact your work life. Your goals will be developed to meet your concrete objectives. This phase also converts your commitment to yourself into solid and achievable action plans, with milestones and timelines. This is the phase to ensure your success. Accountability, actions, and attitude are aligned.
STEP 6: Making it “Stick” – This is the support and “sticking to it” phase. Your desired outcomes and actions are tracked and documented as new habits and new behaviors are cemented. We plan for solid checks and balances and feedback loops. This is also the time when we determine how much, if any, more work we want to do together in our coaching partnership.
While all of these steps and phases are anchored within our coaching sessions, progress toward your goals can only be propelled forward by your personal commitment and choices. You are the ‘driver’. I am your ‘tour guide’. I will point out the signs in the road, reflect on your choices, and offer you challenges during your journey. A successful coaching partnership requires both parties to give it their “all” and I promise to do exactly that every step of the way.
