As an Executive Coach or corporate therapist I am utilised by companies and individuals to assist them reach their maximum potential. People who take on leadership roles need to commit to being the best they can be. It may be news to some however being the best you can be requires some work and this work is on self.
During an executive coaching session we leave no stone unturned, we approach subjects such as problems managing up, communicating with your team, dealing with conflict and confrontation. We also address the wider complexed issues such as why did the issue come up now? Believe it or not a client’s childhood plays a significant part in how he/she performs when on the front line eg: making decisions, pressure, confrontation and negotiation to name a few.
It is common for those who are at the top of their tree to become stuck, they have been in a fast race to the top and they are usually over achievers. The over achievers find themselves at some stage during their career struggling to keep their momentum. If an over achiever is left to wallow in their own thoughts, they find themselves quarrelling with team members and generally unhappy sometimes even disruptive. We know the domino effect this has...
Once they have stepped into self-sabotage mode, they find themselves leaving organisations and stepping out into SME or some other adventure. You may argue that these people were ready to move on? However, I will ask you “what if you invested in these people and they stayed?”
We all know the cost of turnover, we all know the importance of wise counsel in a company. Leaders are just that, Leaders they are in their position for a reason “To lead the field” this requires them to be mentors for the up and coming, to share the vision of the company and to ensure the company legacy lives on through the young and upcoming executives.
My job is to figure out what’s not working and what’s working for the individual and create a map. This map will allow them to acknowledge, confront and work through what is really holding them back on the ledge of their career. There are many levels on which we work, however as Emotion is the primary driver of every human being, I find we work mostly on this level for some time.
Whether the person is from Africa or Australia their show stoppers usually come down to a few universal issues.
“Tell me about your childhood” It may seem an odd question for me to ask when I first meet with an executive. It is however where all learned behaviours and beliefs start. Now it is not my intention at this point for you to pull out the tissues and confess your inner most thoughts to your colleagues in the hall way or across the board room table.
My coaching techniques are designed to bring out the best in a broad range of people. As a matter of fact, most of my executive clients are some of the most together, successful people in their field. So you ask what do they need coaching? And why is a ccoaching session organised within the office in the middle of the day?
Companies at the top of their game know that cultivating leadership is paramount to the success of the company’s future. A lot of companies talk a good game but when you look at their percentage of investment in their leaders, it is just that talk! A company who invests in their leaders go far and beyond the initial hand shake of welcome to the company.
