Our Executive Coaching Services

 

 

​​Our Coaching Services and Process

 

Our coaching process borrows from a number of different models and processes.

 

  • It is flexible enabling you to address your issues and challenges using different tools  

  • It includes a comprehensive battery of assessments followed by a two–hour feedback session focused on uncovering your leadership strengths and weaknesses 

  • Depending on your needs and challenges, it utilizes a variety of proven methodologies including:

    1. 1. Behaviorism--reinforcing new behaviors

    2. 2. Positive psychology--focusing on strengths

    3. 3. Cognitive-behavioral--identifying self-limiting beliefs

    4. 4. Emotional intelligence--enhancing self-awareness, self-management

    5. 5. Neuroscience--establishing new habits

    6. 6. Mindfulness--focusing on living in the present 


 

Our Assessment Services and Process

 

A typical assessment battery is completed online after the first coaching session and includes some or all of the following:

 

  • 360° assessment – based on a set of leadership competencies, this assessment involves a participant’s manager, peers, direct reports, and self.  Typically 8 – 12 colleagues respond

 

  • Personality assessment – various personality tests are administered selected from the Hogan Personality Inventory, the Hogan Development Survey, DISC Profile, NEO-PI-R, FIRO-B, and Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory

 

  • Motivational/Values instruments  -- Hogan Motives, Values, and Preferences Inventory

 

  • Cognitive ability assessment – including Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal and Raven’s Progressive Matrices

 

  • Optional informational interviews with participant (self-perceptions) and others (may include manager,peers, direct reports)

 

 

 

Our Guarantee

 

If you are contemplating working with a coach, it is essential, of course, to select a coach who is competent and experienced.  But more importantly, you should select a coach with whom you share good chemistry.

 

There are literally 1000’s of coaches out there to choose from—many are very competent and skilled, and many are not!  While we would put our competency and skills in the former category, what makes our services truly unique is not in our skills level, but in our ability to establish rapport, confidence, and mutual trust with our clients. Our reputation is based on integrity—without it, there cannot be any success in working with a coach. 

 

We make a commitment to all of our clients that we will tell the truth!  With that said, we may not be every one’s cup of tea and we will determine that during an initial Discovery/Strategy interview.  If we don’t click, no hard feelings.  We will gladly recommend someone else who might be a better match.

We guarantee that you will attain real results through participation in our Executive Coaching process.  If after active and dedicated participation for six months during which time you apply our tools and processes, you do not see improvement and significant progress towards the goals set forth, we will work with you free of charge to make it work.
