Executive Coaching

Successful executives master these three things:

 

1. Purpose

2. Presence

3. People

1. Purpose

Successful leadership starts and ends with the leader's commitment to, and communication of a clear purpose. 

An executive's purpose must inspire, motivate, and give people a reason to commit and stay committed. Simply speaking, a purpose puts a 'why' into work that extends far beyond salary, benefits, and personal achievement.  

An executive's purpose is the emotional connection that moves people to get behind a cause, blaze trails, pull together, and never quit.

2. Presence

Executive presence comprises five key elements: 

  • Confidence

  • Character

  • Comportment

  • Communication

  • Appearance 

These five elements determine your ability to instill confidence in others. 

Whether already an executive, or about to make the leap to the 'E' or 'C' level, mastering these five key elements makes the difference between struggle and success. 

3. People

The higher up the ladder you go, the more people-skilled you need to be. 

And the higher up the ladder you go, the harder this is to achieve. To hit the ground running, it's vital you become a 'people whisperer'. No, that doesn't mean learning the art of manipulation. It means learning how to engage people, motivate them, inspire action, and build deep trust. 

 

Executive-level success rests heavily on the ability to instill belief, trust, and commitment in others. 

 

How I help you

As your executive coach, I work with you to unhinge you from what got you here and highlight the behaviours that will get you to where you want to go. Rest assured, you don't have to be a mental contortionist and change your personality to achieve executive success. All it takes is sharpen some elements, and dull others. 

I work with you to develop the art of purpose-driven leadership, executive presence, and people-savvy communication and behaviour.

 

Whether an existing executive or working towards the 'E' or 'C' level, my job is to uncover and zone in on the one or two elements that will make the most significant difference in your executive career. 

Executive Coaching  

I work with independent and corporate clients. 

Independent Clients

The most productive way for you to find out how I can help you is to send me a note or, if you prefer, we can speak live.

The majority of leaders I work with:

  • Are being groomed to make the leap to the 'E' or 'C' level. 

  • Want to develop their executive presence. 

  • Are newly promoted and/or have transferred to a new company with a new culture.

  • Are incredibly smart, creative, and driven but aren't so great at bringing out the best in other people. 

  • Have no idea how they're perceived.

  • Know how they're perceived and want to be perceived differently. 

  • Want to create or modify the culture of their team or organization. 

  • Are under-confident and/or have 'imposter syndrome'.

  • Are struggling to establish themselves in a recent 'E' or 'C' level role.

Corporate Clients

I work with executives from newly appointed to seasoned C-Suite leaders. 

Leaders I work with:

  • Are being groomed to make the leap to the 'E' or 'C' level. 

  • Want to develop their executive presence. 

  • Are newly promoted and/or have transferred to a new company with a new culture.

  • Are incredibly smart, creative, and driven but aren't so great at bringing out the best in other people. 

  • Have no idea how they're perceived.

  • Know how they're perceived and want to be perceived differently. 

  • Want to create or modify the culture of their team or organization. 

  • Are under-confident and/or have 'imposter syndrome'.

  • Are struggling to establish themselves in a recent 'E' or 'C' level role. 

I work closely with the client and, where applicable, relevant stakeholders within their organization. 

 

Each executive coaching mandate is specific to the individual. 

To ensure rapid, consistent, and sustainable growth, weekly sessions are highly recommended.

The Coaching Mandate 

  1.  Establish the Mandate

    •  I meet with the person requesting the mandate to gain a clear understanding of what is required. 

  2. Understand the Objectives 

    • I spend thirty minutes with the person to be coached to gain an understanding of what they believe are their specific challenges, coaching objectives, and desired outcomes. 

  3. Confirm the Objectives

    • It's extremely helpful for me to meet with the first-line manager, senior Human Resources professional, direct reports, colleagues, and other relevant parties to make sure what the client believes are the challenges and objectives are, indeed, the challenges and objectives. Where indicated, the objectives are realigned and agreement is obtained from the client and other relevant parties. This establishes a baseline. 

  4. Statement of Work & Invoicing

    • A comprehensive Statement of Work (SoW) is sent to the client for review and approval. Once signed off, the invoice is issued. 

  5. Begin Work

  • I schedule a 45-minute initial 'expectations and etiquette' session with the coaching client (this session is not a 'coaching session'). Coaching sessions begin thereafter.

The Coaching Process

  • The Sessions

    • Executives have a short attention span: I know, I was one. Therefore, sessions are an intensive 45-minutes. I waste no time and get to the matter on hand quickly. 

  • The Platform

    • Wherever possible, coaching sessions are done via Zoom. Otherwise, they are done by phone. There are many occasions when I attend the organization as a coach/observer, and this is usually (though not always) pre-determined in the mandate. 

  • The Support

    • All executive coaching clients are offered unlimited email and text support for the duration of the mandate.

  • The Follow Up

    • The client receives a written summary following each session. 

    • With full knowledge and consent of the client, other interested parties are updated as agreed.

    • Where applicable, other relevant parties are provided written and/or verbal updates at pre-determined intervals.
