EXECUTIVE COACHING

Maximize your performance and grow your organization by harnessing the power of Executive Coaching. Through one-on-one growth development, build on your strengths and breakthrough limiting habits and beliefs. Create the right behavioural changes that lead to improving your ability to impact bottom-line business results.

Executive Coaching is not counselling or therapy, but rather a support structure similar to an athletic coach. The coach supports and helps the executive think through and tackle their own problems. Behavioural assessments are used to help the executive become more self-aware, reduce and manage stress, and improve interpersonal skills.

Coaching accelerates the development of leadership, communication, and productivity skills.  ”In a recent study, training alone improved leadership skills by 22%. When combined with Executive Coaching, improvement jumps to 77%." ― Fortune

TEAM COACHING

Multiply the power of team through team coaching.

A popular approach with our clients, team coaching is a combination of team building and individual development. Through the utilization of Birkman multi-dimensional assessments, we focus on strengthening the understanding of oneself and others both in and out of the workplace.

Larger organizations utilize this accelerated team building approach through their many teams to speed up the timeline to get a team up to full productivity. By using this approach across teams, departments, and locations, they are able to infuse a healthy organizational culture that attracts and keeps great employees.

Smaller organizations use team coaching to create alignment on goals and infuse purpose and company values into their organization. Clarity around roles and responsibilities can be fuzzy with growth and slows down future progress. Communication, roles, and a healthy leadership team become pivotal to expansion and succession.

ACTIVATE YOUR TRAINING

performance coaching

“However excellent your classroom training, without good coaching you are probably wasting 87 cents out of every skills dollar you spend!”

- Neil Rackham, The Coaching Controversy

Research by Manchester Consulting shows that coaching dramatically improves working relationships between supervisors, direct reports, and their respective teams, resulting in a 5:1 return on investment. We agree. Where possible we pair our training with performance coaching to create a just-in-time learning environment to activate new skills. This leverages an organization’s training dollars and allows learners to practice the behavioural changes learned in the classroom.
