Coaching for Individual Executives
Some key questions:
What is the value of Executive Coaching?
The individuals in any organisation form its most important asset. If you offer them 1:1 coaching, you send them a clear message that they are both valued and supported.
Because the coaching is tailored to the individual and carried out in total confidence, he/she can freely express their personal development needs in a way that is rarely possible in a training or ‘classroom’ context. This means that the coaching partnership can focus on developing the person and customise an approach to meet individual needs.
Which executives can benefit from coaching?
- Those new to a leadership role
- Those facing any kind of change or transition in the role, function or personal life (for example a geographical move)
- Those who need to respond to an organisational change in culture and/or structure.
What does the 1:1 coaching process entail?
Once a need for coaching has been established a coach is assigned to an individual executive. There is an initial conversation to establish whether there is a “fit” of coach to client and to clarify what expectations the client has of the coaching process.
Providing the conversation goes well, the coach then contracts with the individual to work with them 1:1 over an agreed period of time to achieve certain objectives, and to be carried out at specified intervals within that time period.
Does coaching have to be face to face?
Most executives currently carry out a high percentage of their work remotely, i.e. by phone, Skype, video conferencing or via various secure meetings apps/processes. This saves them and their organisations a great deal of money and time and makes the process of decision-making, information sharing and regular communications happen swiftly and effectively.
The 1:1 coaching process can easily follow the same process, using the same selection of communication vehicles, whether audio or video, and can be clotted into a busy executive’s work/life without the need for travel or absence from the workplace. Remote or ‘virtual’ coaching is just as personalised, confidential and immediate as face-to-face, and is proven to have the same benefits.
