Key Areas of Professional Coaching
Executive & Professional Coaching
Executives want breakthrough results. Successful leaders need to quickly adapt, apply strategic thinking, communicate effectively, and lead groups to solutions. The way in which leaders do this can mean the difference between an abrasive leader and an effective leader.
Executive coaching is an action-oriented process that mixes self-discovery and self-awareness with your goals. This involves using assessments and data to increase self-knowledge and confidence as you approach your work. There is a powerful difference between thinking you know what you are good at versus actually knowing your strengths and maximizing them. As your thinking partner, we help you quickly get to the core of your concerns, apply strategic thinking and action-planning, and ask powerful questions to provoke reflection that creates insight, growth, and pathways forward.
Most of our executive coaching work begins when leaders are managing a transition, are digesting difficult feedback, or want to dial-in when to use emotional versus nonemotional communication with others. Through coaching packages, we use a process that includes assessments, leveraging strengths, planning success factors, accessing inner resources and implementing strategies to overcome barriers. Many clients report a much greater level of self-efficacy necessary to accomplish their goals and manage relationships more effectively.
Learn about and Leverage Emotional Intelligence
Understanding emotional intelligence and the ability to leverage emotions appropriately is a key indicator of performance and potential. Emotional intelligence influences the way we express ourselves; the way we develop and maintain relationships; and the way we cope with challenges. Using EI effectively means you can better manage yourself and others in a fast-paced world of demands and distractions.
EI can change over time and can be developed for success. Take the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQi 2.0) to identify development potential, along with targeted strategies for becoming more effective in your interactions with others.
Lead with Compassion
Compassion is a key ingredient of a professional culture, along with accountability, competence, respect, and integrity. The new reality, backed by research, is that a compassionate leader will get more powerful results than a tough leader. Bringing out the best in others and being aware of one’s own impact are critical skills for leaders shaping a workplace culture of engagement and wellbeing. Blending compassion with a task-based focus increases effectiveness and helps prevent burnout. What do you need to do to bring more compassion into your leadership style?
Architecting Work-Life Fit
Pursuing a healthy work-life mix is really about aligning every aspect of your life with your values and with what’s meaningful to you. Sometimes personalizing your work-life approach can be more complex than making daily, intentional choices. Is something in the way?
Work-Life Coaching is assessment-based personal coaching that helps professionals reconnect with their values, align their goals with their time, address burnout and workload capacity, tap into resilience, prioritize wellbeing, and rekindle energy for work.
Work with a Work-Life Perspective for Supervisors, Managers, and Leaders
Working with a work-life perspective means building an awareness of the ways in which you work and the impact your behaviors have on others.
Many supervisors are constantly connected to work, moving projects forward and resolving challenges as needed, without adherence to the regular work day schedule. In a fluid technology-rich environment, supervisors often say that it’s easier to handle concerns as they arise.
Team members often believe that what supervisors model is what supervisors expect from others. So, how do you foster a culture of hard work and work-life flexibility? How do you discuss healthy work-life boundaries for your team without taking on even more work yourself? How do you maximize technology use with your team yet still build strong interpersonal relationships? And, what about your own work-life mix?
Work with a work-life perspective coaching provides a unique look at the way you work, the way you integrate work and personal boundaries, and the impact this has on others, especially your direct reports.
Living a healthy and joy-filled life that you love depends a lot on self-acceptance, mindfulness, curiosity, letting go of stories that don’t serve you well, living your values, gratitude, and many other practices. Wellbeing coaching draws upon your inner strength and resources to thrive despite challenges and setbacks.
It takes time and effort to rebalance wellbeing. We start where you are, help you take charge of your choices, and find a sustainable pathway to wellbeing and the life you want to live. Your pathway to wellbeing will rest securely on your values and strengths.
