 Executive coaching

 

Many leaders of businesses or teams turn to executive coaches to optimize their approach. The coaches are confidential and neutral partners. With them, CEO's and managers can consider their business-related topics and issues at a distance to broaden their perception and develop new ways of thinking and acting. Our executive coaches are thoroughly trained and have valuable business experience and various backgrounds, making them strong thought partners for leaders who wish to: 

  • Have an external sounding board and challenger for ideas and vision

  • Wish to grow their own personal development and leadership skills to lead their business/team with more ease and impact

  • Seek perspective beyond or a different approach to their current professional activity  

  • Clarify the purpose in their work and life, translating the outcome into a higher performance

  • Develop a stronger work-life balance, manage stress more effectively, etc.

  • Work with a sparring partner to develop a strategy, e.g. to increase sales, manage complex projects, convince others, improve or expand internal or external relations, strengthen team or individual motivation

  • ...

 

By the way, working with a coach who does not know the details of your business, is often experienced as an advantage by clients.

 Tailor-made workshops & webinars

 

The performance of a team or group of employees can be enhanced by a workshop or webinar on a specific topic, facilitated by one or more coaches. This can take place after an assessment that identified a need or gap within the business or a team. It can also cover a theme that is of interest to several employees or the business performance overall. Examples of such themes are: 

  • Building a stronger and more effective team, based, for example, on Lencioni's team dynamics, such as trust, conflict management, task commitment, accountability and common goals (cfr. our team assessments)

  • Stress management

  • Giving and receiving constructive feedback

  • Personal leadership and resilience

  • Relationship building (with internal and external stakeholders) 

  • Coaching skills for leaders  

  • etc. 

Our workshops and webinars are always tailor-made for your business after an intake discussion and are therefore an effective tool to tackle specific hurdles and strengthen your team's performance and wellbeing.

 Team assessment

& coaching

 

Genuine teamwork typically does not come naturally. It requires hard work and investing in the team members. Our tailor-made program for team development helps you cover this need, and is based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Lencioni Team Development framework. These give you the necessary tools, techniques and insights that, in combination with targeted team coaching, will enable you to build a high performing team. The coaching has the following specific aims for your team(s):

  • to understand their personal styles and increase their awareness about the other team members' styles

  • to become more cohesive

  • to function as a trusted and aligned group

 Interpersonal skills development

 

Emotional intelligence is increasingly recognized as an indispensable skill for work and life. The benefits of well-developed self-knowledge and (inter)personal skills are multiple, both for the individual and his/her professional environment: 

  • Continuous self-development contributes to confidence, well-being, growth mindset and personal and professional performance

  • Strong (inter)personal skills help strengthen both internal and external relationships

  • Employees, especially of younger generations, increasingly wish to develop themselves at work

  • ...

This type of coaching focuses on an individual's personal development topics that have been identified following an evaluation, e.g. self-confidence, fear of failure, cooperation, client orientation, etc. In business, it is also possible that an employee expresses the wish to develop certain skills to feel more at ease in and perform better in certain aspects of his/her job or life. Clear agreements on a desired outcome are formulated between the client (employer), coachee (employee) and the coach.
