Executive Coaching – It´s lonely at the top.

Being a senior manager is tougher than ever before. Competition is usually strong, customers are more demanding, margins get squeezed. The need for new ideas and change is increasing. Employees seek new and more engaging leadership from their bosses. A trusted advisor who has done it himself, who understands what it takes and who has worked across different industries in many countries can provide the support that will make a difference.

Most leaders at the top level receive either very little or no feedback on their behavior. Without that feedback, however, it is almost impossible to change the way we do things.

And if we do not know what it is we want to change, it will be hard to get there.

A typical Coaching process will look like this:

  • A Chemistry Meeting will decide whether Coachee and Coach will want to work together.
  • A specific needs analysis will be put together. What are the Coachee´s expectations, which areas does he or she want to address? What does the Coachee´s Manager expect, what are the expectations of the organization?
  • Which goals should be met towards the end of the Coaching process? How would the investment in time and money yield a good return?
  • If needed: how do peers, direct reports and others see the Coachee´s strengths and development areas?
  • The individual topics will be thoroughly analyzed.
  • Options for behavior changes are developed and tried out.
  • Progress is measured, setbacks are analyzed and solutions developed.
  • Success gets evaluated and anchored.
  • In a Wrap-up Meeting the Coachee, the manager, HR and the Coach discuss the goal achievements of the Executive Coaching process.
