Executive Coaching is a whole-person-focused process that helps you define and achieve your professional objectives, consistent with your most deeply held personal values.
Coaching typically begins with a free 30-minute consultation/exploration over the phone. During that meeting, your coach will ask questions designed to help you define and visualize “Point A” (your current starting point) and “Point B” (where you want to go). This exploratory/assessment session results in a written summary that will steer the coaching process if you choose to move forward. Most executive coaching occurs over about 6 telephone sessions (with carefully tailored homework in between to catalyze progress), and takes anywhere from 9 to 18 weeks. This is flexible.
Benefits of coaching include:
One-on-one COACHING sessions are distinct from writing and strategic consulting services in the following ways. Coaching:
...noticing that you are feeling gaps or imbalances in both personal and professional areas of your life that you’d like to address and improve holistically
...looking to build your personal/professional awareness and strengths
...aiming to realize your full potential
...willing and able to do substantial personal and/or professional development work between coaching sessions (at intervals that you co-establish)
...aiming strictly to solve organization-related problems without any desire to focus on parts of your personal or professional life that may be out of balance (e.g., health, relationship, time management, etc.)
...looking for direct collaborative assistance, leadership, and/or help “lifting” during a specific project, or over a longer duration
...aiming to engage a reliable partner
...willing and able to gather information, data, or documents needed by a consultant (in a deadline-sensitive way), so we can help you achieve your objectives while reducing your and your team's workload
