Executive Coaching

The importance of having an executive and business coach to work with you cannot be understated. A good coach will be a reliable sounding board, a great listener and add some impartiality to your company.

How does an Executive Coach add value to my business?

Think of an executive coach as your right-hand person. If you’ve ever seen the excellent TV series Billions, you will have seen Wendy Rhoades as Bobby Axelrod’s in house performance and business coach, who is also a psychiatrist. Essentially, Wendy provides some key interventions, observations and advice to help the business and employees perform to a high level.

Most executive coaches will meet with their clients once or twice or month and develop an ongoing coaching plan in line with the client's requirements. Depending on the scope of the coaching, we can often liken this approach to being a non-exec director, whether you sit on the Board or not.

Why should I use an Executive Coach?

One of the most important aspects is to be a trusted third-party advisory who adds value to your client's business. An executive coach should encourage clarity, vision, and goal setting. Using tools like Preferred Learning Styles and Emotional Intelligence will help the client to develop a greater understanding of what makes the company tick. These are essential tools for any senior executive and will build more productive relationships overtime.

Executive coaching also provides focus, stability, and the opportunity to work with someone who is passionate about helping individuals (and ultimately businesses) grow. There is no greater feeling for a coach to see the results of a successful program and to see how coachees develop. A coach will become your trusted advisor and someone you can turn to when you want to explore your own personal development needs.

I want to work with an Executive Coach, what’s the next step?

We work to a tried and tested Coaching Process that has seen much success over the years. Each coaching relationship is geared towards maximising the output for the client. No two coaching programmes are ever the same, so each plan is tailor made for the client following initial discussions.

The Coaching Process

1. Pre-Coaching Session to establish the parameters.
2. Coaching Programme (minimum of four one-hour structured sessions).
3. Post-Coaching Session to review and reflect.

In addition, free email support will be given for a period of one month following the final session, within reasonable exchanges. In the current world where COVID-19 may prevent face to face meetings, executive coaching will be performed via Zoom or Skype. Documents will be sent in advance to support each coaching session.
