Tailor-made coaching and facilitation for you and your team
The answers to the most important questions facing an ELT are most often found in the room, and the challenge is to ensure that the best answers see the light of day.
We work with ELTs to help them formulate and implement strategy in creative ways that are most relevant to their situation.
We are not tied to one particular approach to strategy (at last count we have documented over 20 different definitions and approaches to business strategy). Our goal is to assist ELTs get to a point where their strategy is clear, in their own language, responsive to changing circumstances and practical to implement.
It's lonely at the top. Even the most experienced CEO needs someone to act as a confidential sounding board and to provide unbiased feedback.
As seasoned business executives, we understand what it feels like to hold the expectations of thousands of customers, employees and investors. We use this perspective, in combination with our extensive experience and training in coaching, to help bring out the best in leaders.
We build long-term relationships that develop clients’ insight into their own typology – shedding light on motivators, triggers and blind spots. Our clients look forward to our coaching meetings and many say that our work has become an integral part of their success.
Every ELT can benefit from a tune-up. Executive team coaching is quite often a natural extension of one-to-one coaching with the team leader. With some clients we have become an extension of the ELT, joining in meetings periodically to reinforce agreed upon behaviours and priorities.
In cases where coaching the leader and the team concurrently becomes challenging, we work with a small group of associates that we can call on to participate in team coaching.
Often, this work highlights gaps and blind spots on the team, and this can inform the process of talent development and succession planning for ELT level roles.
