Services : Executive Coaching

Executives are the most powerful force in improving organizational functioning, as they create the management environment and standards that prevail. Coaching assists executives in examining their styles and impact on the organization. It facilitates awareness of their strengths and areas in need of development. It provides constructive, confidential feedback and action planning around critical issues which block executive effectiveness.

One-on-one coaching has proven to be a cost effective means of providing real support on actual problems. Top executives and managers cannot always find time to go to even short courses to enhance their current competencies. On the job coaching provides the solution.

Coaching efforts can be problem-centered which require reacting to a problem or crisis that has surfaced, or proactive which relates to addressing future challenges and building upon a client’s management strengths. Typical coaching engagements range from six to twelve months.
