Executive Coaching For Businesses & Organizations
One of the top three concerns of businesses today is filling their leadership gaps which is why more than 85 percent of major companies make coaching a core part of their executive and professional development programs
Executive coaching is a co-active process through which a coach both supports as well as challenges a leader to accelerate their professional development, cultivate emotional intelligence, unlock their full potential and enhance performance.
Through one-on-one confidential coaching sessions and insightful assessments, executive coaching provides leaders with a clear understanding of the behaviors that lead to high-performance and uncover the internal perceptions and beliefs that are limiting potential and derailing the teams they lead.
For executives in new or expanded leadership roles, coaching helps individuals make successful and rapid transitions into new or expanded leadership roles.
An effective executive coach provides an atmosphere where leaders can express fears, concerns and dreams, make important decisions more quickly, reduce costly delays, and provide better quality direction with less risk.
“Coaching really is about supporting people in growing and developing and evolving and changing and emerging consistently into their best self – which isn’t a destination but is an ongoing process.”
~ Karen Kimsey-House, Co-founder and CEO of the Coaches Training Institute
