Achieve Your Career Goals Faster with Executive Coaching
Depending on your specific needs, your co-created plan may include strategies to enhance your daily productivity, influence, and effectiveness. It could include building interpersonal skills for deepening your understanding of your colleagues and partners, identifying and hiring the right players, or forming, coaching, and leading high-performing teams.

This is an action-oriented program where you get most of your goals accomplished between sessions. The meetings will be used to check progress, ask questions, challenge “stories” and assumptions, recommend additional resources and support, and get you back out there. 

Consider your coach a caring accountability partner who is committed to enabling you to enjoy a fulfilling life and make your dreams come true.
What Our Executive Coaching Offers
Whether you are a senior executive or a mid-career individual contributor, by getting regular coaching on a schedule that works for your needs and budget, you will accomplish 3 important career objectives:

  • First, leveraging talent optimization principles, you will get to know, precisely, what kind of organizational culture you are working with.
  • Second—and this is so critical to the fulfillment of your 3-to-5-year goals—you will proactively set, manage, and exceed the expectations of your leadership.
  • Third, you will enlist every stakeholder to enthusiastically help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be. 
The result, over time, will be higher pay, more responsibility, work-life balance, and easily moving to your next target position.

How Executive Coaching Benefits You
While in these programs, you will meet with your executive coach every two weeks, monthly, or quarterly. In these meetings, you will leverage a set of time-tested tools and have accountability to a partner who will help you set your goals and act on them. Your coach will also help you come up with effective strategies to overcome your daily challenges:
  • working with uncooperative colleagues 
  • motivating staff
  • getting leadership to sign off on your initiatives
  • optimizing your effectiveness to accomplish more while limiting the hours you work
You will be able to operate with 20-20 vision of what is happening in front of you, as well as behind you. As a result, you will gladly take responsibility for what comes your way. You’ll have few surprises and plenty to celebrate at each milestone you set for achieving your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who should consider career advancement or executive coaching?
Whether you are a mid-career individual contributor or an executive leading other professionals, you can benefit from our executive coaching program. In the following section, we will cover a broad range of scenarios where you can benefit from engaging an executive or career coach. (The title of the coach just depends on where you are in your career.)
When does it make sense to hire an executive coach?
Here are some scenarios in which executive coaching can have a significant impact on your career:

Setting Yourself up for a Promotion or New Job

Olympic champions hire coaches because their goals and ambitions in sports go way beyond people who just dabble in a sport. Similarly, if you are serious about your career goals compared to other individuals at your level, you need to do what it takes to set yourself apart. Someone with a long career in coaching can help you assess where you are, where you want to get in your organization, and what is the best course of action to take. They will also stay with you as an accountability partner to make sure you keep your eyes on the prize.  

Long-term Career Planning

Similarly, you may be looking beyond your current position or even profession and are wondering what kind of work will get you excited. A career or executive coach can lead you through a process of determining this. Once you decide, you’ll need to know what will be required not only to make a transition but also to excel in your new profession, and a good executive coach can help with both. Or, if you are seeking a higher-level role in your existing profession, you’ll want to determine how to achieve that. Again, engaging someone with a successful coaching career can help you stay focused on those goals and navigate around the challenges you will encounter. That is how an executive coach can help not only with your plans but also with making sure you achieve your goals in record time, while enjoying that journey of growth.

Managing Up

According to Harvard Business Review, managing up is about “being the most effective employee you can be, creating value for your boss and your company.” Engaging an executive coach can help you turn your daily work into a healthy, successful, and rewarding endeavor. This endeavor will not only benefit everyone involved but will also inspire them to become your champions who advocate for your rapid career success.

Leading People to Achieve Goals

President Eisenhower defined leadership as “the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.” An executive coach can help you master this art, applying it to your self-mastery, as well as to motivating others to fully support the achievement of your goals.

Resolving Interpersonal Conflicts at Work

Becoming emotional about personal conflicts drains your energy, and the first casualty of that energy drain is your ability to creatively resolve conflicts to everyone’s benefit. Your executive coach can help you step back from the stress of those conflicts and discover new perspective on how you can get what you want—not at the expense of others but with their full support.

Working Effectively with People of Different Styles

One of the first benefits of executive coaching is an appreciation of your own personality style—your strengths and pitfalls. Your executive coach will help you develop a keen eye on how to observe these traits in your daily activities and how to act in a way to fully leverage those strengths. But even more importantly, your executive coach will help you become more aware of other people’s styles, by mastering talent optimization practice. The benefit of this is that instead of approaching differences emotionally, you can leverage those differences to build a high-performing team to work with.  

Taming a Toxic Workplace

As a team leader or an executive, there can be nothing more frustrating than inheriting a toxic work environment. Your executive coach can help you introduce the practice of talent optimization to such a workplace. Using scientific people data, you will not only quickly determine the roots of dysfunction but can also implement strategies to overcome them. If you are an individual contributor, your career coach can give you ideas for presenting your leadership with talent optimization solutions. These solutions will help them transform a toxic workplace into a harmonious one or an under-performing team into a high-performing one, and you will be the hero who inspired this.

Growing from Feedback

Becoming aware of our blind spots is a good start, but proactively leveraging that awareness is essential for growing as a professional. Someone seasoned in career coaching will introduce you to new strategies to leverage feedback in a constructive way, even if it was delivered in an unconstructive way by a manager or colleague.

Harnessing Your Strengths to Overcome Obstacles

Our career coaching practice is provided by professionals seasoned in coaching careers who are armed with scientific people data. Harnessing this combination leaves no guesswork in charting a path where career growth equates with daily happiness, as well as financial rewards. Every obstacle will become another fun opportunity to sharpen your skills and expedite your career success.

Cost-benefit Analysis on Getting More Qualifications

Should you invest tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention invaluable hours, in training, certifications, or a higher degree, or are there better strategies to accelerate your career success? Your career coaching partner will leverage years of experience working with other executives and professionals in your situation, as well as objective data to help you make this decision. They will help you conduct a realistic trade-off analysis as to what path would make the most sense for your unique situation.
What is the difference between career strategy coaching and executive coaching?
The previous question and answer described most scenarios in which hiring an executive coach would make sense. Career strategy coaching, on the other hand, is solely focused on helping you land your next position, potentially an unadvertised role in the hidden job market, while leveraging traditional as well as unconventional strategies, like executive access. 
What is the difference between career advancement and executive coaching?
Career advancement coaching and executive coaching in many instances are very similar. The distinction boils down to whether you are an individual contributor or an executive.
What do you do in the coaching sessions?
  1. Prior to the first session, you complete three items: personality assessment, Career Strategy Assignment 1, and your career worksheet. In case of career advancement or executive coaching you may also complete the Predictive Index assessment.
  2. Using this information and our conversation, we identify your strengths and weaknesses, career preferences, skills, timeline, etc.
  3. Using your personality information and your goals, we jointly agree on your branding strategy and an implementation plan that works for you.
  4. We teach and coach you on leveraging tools such as Predictive Index to learn more about your team, your leadership, and other stakeholders and be able to motivate them to support your goals.
  5. We identify where you are stuck, make course corrections, and use our Inner Game technology to make sure you remain motivated to succeed.
  6. We continue to work your plan with you to ensure  your job satisfaction, exceptional performance, and rapid promotion..
