Executive Coaching

All Executive coaching goals vary according the individual. Results can include further developing each individual leader’s full understanding of role expectations, supporting their ability to lead strategically, and enhancing each manager’s personal confidence to execute their role. Managers will also hone their abilities to navigate new work dynamics between peers, leaders, and property partners. Each leader also is coached to manage individual barriers to workplace performance excellence.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A COACHING SESSION:

Early on the coaching sessions we discuss the coach-ee’s leadership vision they wish to achieve for themselves and their department/region. We identify the current “pulse” of their division, key players, and dynamics impacting the current status. We also review the goals provided by their leader.

The sessions are presented in a way that the individual eventually recognizes internally about themselves that is also preventing their own progress. I seek through the conversations to learn the coach-ee’s natural strengths, fears, and behavioral patterns that have served and hindered them.

Coaching comes through conversation. I begin with asking my client to share something they wish to celebrate since we last spoke.

Opportunities for growth happen naturally as we discuss current situations, activities, and challenges.
