Individual Leadership Coaching

Why Individual Coaching? 

Coaching is a collaborative partnership between a coach and a willing individual which connects at the deep personal level of beliefs, values and vision. It enables, through a process of discovery, goal setting and specific action. It is for the realization of extraordinary results. It is based in a body of knowledge, technology, and a style of relating that focus on the development of human capacity. 

Areas of Coaching:

Relationships: The relationship of the people in the company is the human glue that holds the company together and allows it to operate at its maximum capacity. A coach helps you get to really know your people, their needs and what motivates them. 

Emotional Awareness: Briefly this has to do with being able to handle situations with compassion through self-awareness and self-discipline. The best managers score high in emotional awareness and intelligence. 

Feedback: This ranges from active listening to formal assessment tools and reports about an executive’s performance, behaviour and possible blind spots. Feedback enables the executive to create development plans that increase performance, sometimes through behaviour modifications. .

Listening: Listening is the key to being an effective coach. It can be lonely at the top. An executive may need a listener and effective dialogue to sort through issues and decisions. A coach knows the kind of questions to ask that lead to insights and to openings for action for the executive in his or her accountabilities. 

Stretch and Risk: We will push ourselves outside of our comfort zone with the support of a great coach. 

Commitment: Re-examining goals and values from a holistic approach. Being a CEO, president, or manager is not who you are in life. It is only one aspect of a full life of friends and family and interests. How do we keep harmony in all of these areas? 

Effective Communication: The gift of language is a tool. Speaking and listening do only one of two things in life; they create or destroy. Know the difference and honour the tool. 

Personal Power: Where does it come from, other than knowledge? 

Passion: What is it - and what is yours? We think our passion as those things we love to do. We say those things are an expression of our passion, that our passion is our gift, what we make available in the world; our purpose. What will be your legacy? 

Strategic Design: Creating and implementing personal or corporate Vision, Mission, Purpose and core values.
