How Executives Benefit
As a coach, I specialize in helping executives, managers and entrepreneurs:
- Build high-performance teams
- Develop business and communication strategies to navigate seasons of growth or transition
- Chart a career path that is both satisfying and significant
- Self-assess your personal leadership style and create action plans for your own development
- Evaluate and enhance internal communication
- Identify and expand strategic alliances or networking opportunities
- Develop time management strategies that work for you
- Balance work, family and personal life
The Coaching Process
The coaching process start with a free Complimentary Session, which gives us the chance to meet each other, talk through your objectives, and design the optimum coaching relationship for your needs. It’s a no-obligation opportunity for you to explore the difference it can make to have a coach.
The coaching relationship is comprised of four interrelated components:
- Identifying developmental objectives for both you and your business, and creating an overall growth plan.
- Focusing in on key challenges, obstacles and choke points, and generating options and strategies to impact them.
- Converting general strategies into specific action steps, and developing follow-up structures to ensure timely completion.
- Providing energizing personal support and advocacy throughout the process.
Costs and Deliverables
In a typical coaching relationship, we meet three times per month by phone / Skype for 45 minutes to an hour each time, with free e-mail contact and short “spot calls” of five minutes or less between sessions as needed. In our initial intake session we’ll design the details of the relationship based on your objectives and needs.
A basic executive coaching contract is for three months. After 90 days we’ll have a formal review, and you may choose to renew the contract, go month-to-month or wrap things up. A sample contract and professional references can be provided upon request.
Coaching Benefits: The Research
“In a study by Manchester Consulting in 2002, year-long executive business coaching had a 5.7 times return on investment (ROI). After receiving executive coaching, business executives each were surveyed about the benefits they believe resulted from coaching. The results of that survey were:
- Working relationships with direct reports (77% improvement)
- Working relationships with immediate supervisors (71% improvement)
- Teamwork (67% improvement)
- Working relationships with peers (63% improvement)
- Job satisfaction (61% improvement)
- Conflict reduction (52% improvement)
- Organizational commitment (44% improvement)
- Working relationships with clients (37% improvement)”
