Everyone needs a coach. — Bill Gates
Moving up the corporate ladder takes a special kind of expertise, knowledge, and skills that are hand-picked from those who know what makes a great leader. If you’re considering changing careers or setting the groundwork to get a promotion, executive coaching can help you prioritize and strategize the moves you need to make to realize your goals. These skills can be learned and developed with the help of an executive coach.
Executive coaching is different than typical employment counseling. Executive coaching is the supportive relationship between an individual in a leadership position — or one who is aspiring into leadership — and a professional executive coach.
As your executive coach, I will partner with you in a thought-provoking and creative process, to help you get inspired to maximize your personal and professional potential.
What you get with executive coaching
Develop greater self-awareness: Leadership is about more than on-the-job performance. Your self-awareness is integral to moving up in your company or organization. An executive coach will help you develop greater self-awareness so you can build on your strengths and become aware of where you need to grow.
Support: Leadership skills can be developed under guidance. Executive coaching gives you support in a non-judgemental environment. As your coach, I am 100% on your side and prepared to help you succeed. In addition to this, as your executive coach, I am coming from a place of experience and knowledge. I have worked in upper management and executive positions, and have experience in professional coaching and training others to become leaders. Click here to read more about my experience.
Development of leadership qualities: An excellent employee does not always excel in management and leadership. For many of us, leadership is not something that comes naturally; it’s a quality we need to develop and strengthen over time. Understanding the psychology of ourselves and our unique skillsets can help us make better decisions. Coaching can help you obtain a more accurate point of view regarding how to use your strengths to navigate the challenges that come with management and politics in the corporate world. If you are feeling stuck in your job, we can plan and develop the skills you need for a promotion or career change.
Communication coaching: Communication skills are important for every relationship you will have, both in and out of the workplace. Becoming an effective communicator allows you to get your message across clearly to those working under you, as well as higher management and company stakeholders. Communication strategies and skills will ultimately help you get what you need accomplished and enable you to reach your goals, both in your current job and in your personal life.
Working through problems that may be keeping you from success: We don’t always acknowledge it, but what is happening in your home life has the potential to greatly affect your work performance. Together, we can work through issues from your past, current family challenges, or other factors impacting your ability to succeed.
If you are ready to move up in your career, executive coaching is a wise investment. Even if you’ve already landed the position you wanted, you may be facing a whole new level of performance expectation for which you feel unequipped. I’m here to help you take the opportunities you have and flourish.
