Services

Are you a top executive wanting to have an even greater performance edge? Are you, or do you want to be on your company’s “fast track”? Are you responsible for developing top talent and “high potentials” in your organization?

Executive Coaching

Our Executive Coaching services support your top talent in leveraging their strengths, honing their skills and optimizing their leadership performance.   We offer engagement structures designed for middle managers, senior leaders and C-level executives.

COACHING SKILL TRAINING - Any individual who has people responsibility can benefit from learning basic coaching skills. We offer coaching skill training workshops in one- and two-day formats customized to meet your organization’s stage of development and business needs.

NEW EXECUTIVE ONBOARDING

Over half of new executives fail within the first 18 months of entering a new position. This is a staggering statistic that speaks not only to huge wasted investment but dangerous organizational turmoil – all of which are unnecessary if your new executives are supported properly during their time of transition and acclimation. Six months of dedicated executive coaching support can provide a new member of your senior team a partner in their adjustment process – a safe sounding board and experienced navigator of politics and people – to set them up for success.

We Can Help You:

Develop high potential employees – your “top talent” – who are on the fast track to future leadership

Support subject matter experts or technical professionals who need to become people leaders

Create your organization as agile, forward-thinking, and able to act in new ways.

CAREER MANAGEMENT

Your high potential people are often too busy doing the work to be thinking about their career path and as a result may not be appropriately preparing themselves for their next move. Our executive coaches work with high achievers to help them get clear on what they want and what it will take to get them there. Executive coaching is often used instead of conventional outplacement services for senior level individuals particularly when a change in career direction is being considered. Our transition management process supports the personal reflection and consideration of alternatives that is critical to re-establishing oneself on the executive track – or off it, if that’s the best course of action.

RESUME PREPARATION AND REVIEW AND LINKEDIN PROFILE CREATION/REVIEW - Whether you’re seeking a new role internally or externally, or even if you’re not considering a move in the immediate future, a current and powerful resume is a critical marketing document.  Let us work with you to ensure your resume, as well as your LinkedIn profile, works as hard as it can to position you for career success.

Technical Leaders

Our workplaces are increasingly populated with subject matter and technical experts - many of whom never envisioned “people leadership” as part of their career path. Supporting the development of an extraordinary technical leader to become an equally adept people leader is best done in partnership with an external coach.

We assess your technical leaders, identify their strengths and areas for development, work with them and their executive stakeholders to set objectives, and set up a structure of ongoing meetings, real-time observations and feedback sessions such that they learn how to coach rather than tell, how to develop their team members and how to create successors such that there is more leader capacity in the overall system.

COMMUNICATION AND PRESENTATION SKILLS TRAINING - We are professional communicators no matter whether we’re working one on one or speaking in front of a large audience. We are available for training your people, no matter what organizational level, on the basics and the finer points of constructing a compelling presentation and delivering the message with impact.

“When the concept of executive coaching was first introduced to me, I immediately saw an opportunity for those in my department to benefit from the wisdom of a third party professional, assisting them to straighten out work and family issues. There was an expectation that once the others were ‘fixed up’, my job would be that much easier. Acting as a good role model, I too participated, albeit not fully convinced that personal coaching could really help me, given that I felt grounded and satisfied in my work.

I would have to say however, that the personal coaching I received helped me immensely, not only in my professional life but in my personal life as well. Understanding priorities, recognizing/rewarding my talents, working on weaknesses, preparing for important meetings, committing to personal improvements, have all gone to strengthening my character and creating a more relaxed ‘me’. My staff and family thank you.”
