Executive Coaching

These sessions range from both operational coaching on a regular (say, once per quarter) basis through to ‘emergency’ meetings where an immediate issue with high emotional charge needs to be addressed urgently.

Flexibility is a key feature of this service…

  • You may select a one-off intervention for a specific need, or a planned programme of longer term, regular meetings
  • Sessions can be face-to-face (usual approach), over the telephone/Skype or via email.
  • We can provide a one-day open session on your premises, for any employee to book a slot

For those organisations wishing to establish access to an external coach, the process is very simple:

With the sponsor

  • We confirm a contract of confidentiality so that the individual can be assured that there is no feedback to his or her employer unless specifically sanctioned by the coachee.
  • We identify with you, if appropriate, what the desired outcomes from any coaching relationship are from the sponsor’s perspective.
  • Because there is no minimum contract, you have absolute flexibility in terms of how often you access the service.

With the coachee

  • We confirm the confidential nature of the coaching relationship
  • We agree initial desired outcomes – this will normally be for the first session only (two hours normally) unless the coachee already knows that they want to undertake a series of meetings

Recent projects in this area include…

  • Intervention in a fundamental dispute between a line manager and senior team member within a Private Healthcare Company leading to breakdown of the relationship.  We conducted a two-phase approach, with private individual discussions followed by bringing the two parties together. The result has been a deeper understanding of each other’s preferred approach and attitudes and, whilst not particularly liking each other, they have maintained an effective working relationship for over 12 months.
  • Private consultations with two co-Directors/Owners to identify key personal drivers for future direction of a successful business. This led to identification of the critical similarities and differences that ensured an agreed strategy.
  • Intervention with senior Pensions Manager in a large IT Company to help him improve his interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence. This has resulted in an improved relationship with his Director.
