Executive coaching focuses on setting goals, creating outcomes and managing personal change. Other service professions, like consulting and psychotherapy, are based on the wisdom and expertise of the professional. In coaching you—the client—are the expert. My role as your coach is to ask powerful questions, act as a sounding board, provide objective assessment and observations, listen fully and actively, challenge your blind spots, and foster shifts in thinking that reveal fresh perspectives.
What are examples of goals you might address with a coach:
Are you looking for clarity on the next steps in your career?
Do you feel “stuck” on the path to achieving your goals?
Is there an upcoming opportunity or challenge that you want to leverage?
Did you just find out your company will be going through a merger?
Are you preparing for a promotion or increased leadership role?
Other common reasons for partnering with a coach include:
Optimizing work performance
Expanding career opportunities
Defining strengths and weaknesses
Improving business management strategies
Managing work/life balance
What’s my role as your coach?
The most successful coaching partnerships begin with a client who has a clear idea of what they want to accomplish and is open to collaboration and new perspectives.
As a coaching client, your role is to:
Create the coaching agenda based on personally meaningful goals.
Assume full responsibility for your own decisions and actions.
Use the coaching process to promote possibility thinking and fresh perspectives .
Engage big-picture thinking and problem-solving skills.
Take the tools, concepts, models and principles provided by your coach and engage in effective forward actions.
Most one-on-one coaching sessions last from 45 minutes to an hour. They can be held on the phone, on zoom (or similar platform) or in person. The sessions are usually held several times a month for a period of 3-6 months or longer depending on the client's needs.
