What is Coaching

Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative process that will inspire you to maximize your personal & professional potential.
Executive coaching focuses on setting goals, creating desired outcomes, and managing personal change.
Unlike consulting and psychotherapy, the coaching client is the expert.

Your coach’s role is to:

  • Ask powerful questions
  • Act as a sounding board
  • Provide objective assessment & observations
  • Listen fully and actively
  • Challenge your blind spots
  • Foster shifts in thinking that reveal fresh perspectives

Your executive coach will be your accountability partner on your journey toward identifying, clarifying, and achieving your goals – both personal and professional.

What Can Executive Coaching Do For Me?

  • Unlock your leadership potential
  • Improve decision making
  • Maximize your performance, and that of the organization
  • Improve self-awareness and self-management 
  • Gain valuable observations & feedback for continual improvements

The coaching partnership is based on confidentiality, rapport, trust, and a commitment to be open to learning.

What’s Your Role?

The most successful coaching partnerships begin with a client who is open to collaboration and new perspectives.  As the coaching client, your role is to:

  • Create the coaching agenda   
  • Use the coaching process to promote possibilities and fresh perspectives
  • Engage big picture thinking, and problem-solving skills
  • Take the tools, concepts, models and principles provided by your coach to engage in effective forward actions
