The use of Executive Coaching is wide and varied but typical situations where coaching can provide significant benefits include the following situations where there is a need to:
Improve an individual’s performance to achieve better results – by using one-to-one performance and leadership coaching it’s possible to leverage people’s strengths, improve decision making and produce positive business results more quickly than can be achieved alone.
Support the organisation’s leaders – it’s often lonely at the top and a coach can provide an experienced sounding board, a valuable safety net and an alternative perspective not usually available from colleagues and friends. A coach can help provide new strategic insights and support.
Help “high flyers” – a coach can help provide extra “risk free” guidance to younger fast-track executives who have ability but may lack some hands-on experience.
Overcome managerial underperformance – when a manager has some weaknesses which cause internal conflicts or poor performance a coach is often best situated to help them recognise the problem and figure out the best ways to turn things around.
Build high performing teams – coaches help organisations build high performing teams using well proven methodologies and tools to ensure they achieve the key goal of any team – “better decisions – faster.”
Improve communication throughout the business and with customers – coaches often use behavioural profiling and EQ tools to help managers understand their own and others’ behaviour and use these powerful techniques to improve productivity, motivation, business results and to reduce negative conflict.
Improve sales performance – sales coaches provide a valuable alternative to traditional training to improve sales performance and overall customer satisfaction.
