Develop your skills to adapt to the ever-changing business landscape

We recognize that leadership of a team or organization can be a lonely journey, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Executive coaching provides a safe and collaborative environment that supports you in navigating the unique challenges that come with being a leader. Whether you are looking to enhance your leadership impact, align your strategies with your vision, increase team motivation or cohesion, improve corporate culture, or overcome interpersonal challenges, executive coaching provides a space where you can explore issues and situations from different perspectives and angles.

Through one-on-one coaching, we help you shift behaviors and mindsets, maximize performance, foster new ways of thinking, enhance your leadership capacities, and leverage your strengths to lead with confidence and achieve your vision.

Executive Coaching FAQ’s

What is coaching?

The International Federation of Coaching (ICF) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Simply put the essence of coaching is:

  • To help a person change in the way they wish and help them go in the direction they want to go.
  • Coaching supports a person at every level in becoming who they want to be.
  • Coaching builds awareness, empowers choice and leads to change.
  • It unlocks a person’s potential to maximize their performance. Coaching helps them to learn for themselves rather than teaching them.

Who is executive coaching for?

Executive coaching is a highly personalized and thought-provoking experience, suitable for executives, mid-level managers, new leaders, and high potential individual contributors. Ultimately, it is best suited for leaders who are performance driven, development-minded and who have the courage to reflect, receive feedback, experiment, and do the rewarding work involved in transformational change.

What is a typical coaching session like?

A typical coaching session is either 30 or 45 minutes in length. We start by asking you what you want to focus on for the session, whether that’s working towards the goals you’ve set for yourself, talking through a difficult situation or challenge, or something that is front of mind for you in that moment. We guide you through an explorative process to dig deeper in understanding your situation and we support you in navigating a path through to where you want to go. We typically close out a session with a commitment around an action step you want to take so that you can keep your progress moving forward in between sessions. Executive coaching is a powerful process that is best understood by experiencing it for yourself. Reach out to us for a free discovery session to see if coaching is right for you.

How long do people typically work with a coach?

Like most things, it depends! Some people come to coaching wanting to work on a specific challenge that may only take a few sessions to work through. Other people find great value in partnering with a coach for extended periods to support their long term development or goals. And some people work with a coach on and off when they feel like they need extra support. While coaching engagement lengths depend on individual goals and needs, we do recommend committing to at least 3 months of coaching to experience the full benefits of coaching.
