There are three critical components to a successful coaching relationship:

  1. Trust between the coach and the leader. 
  2. A willingness by the leader to be open to hear feedback and experiment with different ways of leading.
  3. A clear plan for the coaching with mutually agreed goals and measurements to know when they have been reached.

Our approach is to initially build trust by ensuring there is a good connection between the coach and the leader.  Following this, develop a robust coaching plan. 

Each coaching arrangement will vary depending on the situation and business context.  A range of solutions will be developed accelerate the goals of the coaching plan.  This may include any or all of the following:

  • One-to-one coaching in person, via video conferencing, telephone or even email or text message. 
  • Observing a leader at work.
  • Face to Face 360 feedback – not your standard 360, but a customized qualitative and quantitative view taking into consideration personal areas of focus and the business context.

What will you gain from a successful coaching relationship?

  • An independent view on how you are showing up as a leader, (the good, the parts we know but try to hide, and maybe a few surprises along the way)
  • A mirror will be held up for you to look in and see how you are impacting those around you.
  • You will hear what you need to hear, not always what you want to hear.
  • Successful strategies to improve your personal effectiveness.
