Executive Coaching

Everything I do is in service to my client’s mastery and success.

Just as the best sports performers benefit from regular coaching, so do the best business performers.

Think Michael Phelps. Roger Federer. Serena Williams.

As a successful leader you’re required to manage rapid change and lead people to act with integrity in an atmosphere of enormous pressure. In the current slow-growth economy there is shareholder scrutiny of both end-results and the “what” and “how” behind those results.

Today, we know that effective coaching supports the bottom line. Studies show:

  • An average return of more than six times the cost of coaching
  • Improvements in productivity, quality, and organizational strength
  • Better relationships with peers, direct reports, bosses and clients

The Four Phases of a Coaching Engagement

Phase One – Explore the day-to-day issues at work, assessing the values, motives, competencies and managerial styles.

  • Assess the organizational climate being created by the individual. It offers an indication of how well her or she is optimizing the performance of their people.
  • Allows the leader to more objectively assess strengths and any areas for improvement. This increased awareness becomes the foundation for change.

Phase 2: Focuses development and sets objectives and performance measures.  Key leadership communication skills are blended with existing talents while we investigate and transform any behaviors and thinking patterns that may be getting in the way of success.

  • All work we do is learn-by-doing and uses best-in-class leadership communication models along with somatic coaching adapted from theatre and performance disciplines. The approach offers the best chance for integration and transformation.

Phase 3: Through practice, reinforcement, increased self-reflection, and monitoring of productive new behaviors, new habits will integrate. During this phase, we assess the business impact of the new behaviors. We evaluate how well he or she is meeting the goals set out in Phases One and Two.

Phase 4: Periodic check-ups can support sustaining positive behaviors that are transforming relationships and bringing greater results to the business.
