Executive Coaching for Managers, Senior Managers, Directors, and CFO’s
As an introduction to outlining the “take-away’s” relevant to Executive Coaching, it is important to clarify that Coaching is a soft skill. It is not a technical one and applies to any organization, seniority, and role. Below are some key characteristics of the discipline.
Coaching addresses many issues: e.g., a) when organizations are in state of transition and where the market maybe becoming more complex and also moving at a fast space b) where employees are being asked to change the nature of their role by, for example, adding value to their existing one c) where technology is changing the nature of the employee’s role d) where new outlooks and mindsets are needed to be in line with changes to the functioning of the discipline.
These situations present challenges and identify gaps in behavior that the organization and its employees have to fill. Specific objectives need to be defined for each client and the desired behaviors and outcomes signed off by the relevant stakeholders: Client, Line Manager, HR and Talent. They are tailored made to each individual. After this course, participants should be able to:
• Distinguish the specific behavioral shifts needed to develop new skills and to become competent at executing those skills
• Identify ways to stay outside their comfort zone by ensuring they seek the appropriate support. Being in this zone is a place of learning and clients will then be capable of understanding, in detail, the opportunities for personal development
• Determine how to sustain positive and constructive results by ensuring the Coaching Objectives contain a framework that will allow the client to coach other members of their team
• Recognize that limiting beliefs weaken the client’s self-confidence. Understanding this negative dynamic will enable the client to challenge their disruptive thinking and create a platform for new possibilities
Bullet points listing major topics covered.
