What ‘inner circle’ is the CEO, VP or Manager leveraging to drive their own success? Every great coach should have a coach and let’s face it, it can be lonely at the top. Perhaps we have the ‘stuff’ of leadership, but how do we ensure we’re as strong and capable as we can be? Coaching helps focus us on what’s important; to identify gaps and blind spots and to develop strategies to address those gaps.
From first time Manager to CEO, leaders are understandably distracted by the day to day rigor of business and life. Engaging with a coach helps to bring accountability and tangibility to the things that really matter – accelerating the organization or the individual to the target outcome. This process may involve a leadership profile, objective clarification, identification of strengths and gaps, or resume and job search communications coaching. The coach can also be engaged to work directly with intact leadership and staff teams using many of the same tools and approaches that are used in one-on-one coaching. The outcome? Improvement of team dynamics, goal alignment and creation of a common language for interaction.
Establishing trust is paramount in a coaching relationship. The Coaching Co. enlists a discrete process built around one-on-one interactions, honesty, and an understanding that your business and personal life are to be handled carefully and with sensitivity to confidentiality and reputation.
Every great leader and deal-maker is looking for ‘extra’ value. The ‘real world’ business experience of The Coaching Co. offers a foundation that can be leveraged for problem-solving around challenging organizational, business or human capital/human resource matters.
In the best of situations, organizations are lead by strong leaders with clear strategy and pure intentions. Sadly, however, the structure, culture and design of an organization can make the best of ideas and the strongest of leaders fail.
While you can find many definitions, The Coaching Co. believes that organizational development is foundationally focused on how an organization is structured and aligned to execute its strategic intentions – through systems and people.
Some of the services offered by The Coaching Co. in this area include: organization design, organizational effectiveness review, human resources and OD maturity assessment, performance management systems review and implementation as well as leadership coaching and development.
