Just as professional athletes use experts to reach and maintain peak performance, career coaching is a way to facilitate your journey to professional growth and development. Executive coaching builds a platform of mutual trust and respect with the goal being to enhance your self-awareness, helping you gain clarity on your personal vision and goals and being a trusted sounding board and guide.
Coaches are not therapists or counsellors, they should be qualified specialists holding an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. A coach with an executive or leadership background themselves provides a deeper layer of understanding and empathy for your journey.
When engaging an executive or leadership coach, it is important to be clear about what type of engagement you are seeking. It is quite common for Coaches to take a “fireside chat” approach to working with their clients, and this will suit some people.
When I am working with you, I am your accountability partner and I take an engaged and strategic approach to bring energy and momentum to our sessions.
I get how difficult it is to invest time for your development. To deliver value, I facilitate the session to cover off your front of mind issues before we open the session to reflection & review, challenges & accountabilities, opportunities & pivots to take you forward. After each coaching session you receive from me a comprehensive set of reflections, notes and actions . Using a mix of tools and methods, our coaching sessions are always forward looking and keeping you in the driver’s seat.
