Executive Coaching

Developing your ability for complex thinking and effective response

Senior leaders and executives are often in unique situations in their organisations. The stakes are high and the expectations are equally high, they are often always on stage and yet potentially isolated at the same time. 

  • Better decision-making and strategic planning ability

  • Leading in times of change, complexity and crisis

  • Ability to fully motivate teams and communicate effectively

  • Managing stress, resilience and conflict

  • Improved work/life balance

  • Successful role transition

  • Increased confidence, self-belief and enjoyment

  • Better understand your goals and hold yourself accountable

  • Gain self-awareness and ability to influence

  • Achieve development objectives

  • Unlock potential and develop creativity and intellectual freedom

  • Give yourself time and space for your own growth and learning

Executives need to present a controlled image while the world they operate in becomes increasingly complex, unpredictable and unstable. Executive coaching can be short or long term. It is a learning approach that creates self-awareness, helps drive transformational change, and provides critical challenge and support. Executive coaching focuses on you as an individual and also on your role and the success of your organisation.


Some of the benefits for your organisation include:

  • Increased motivation and commitment from your teams, higher engagement and staff retention

  • More creativity, empowerment and ownership unleashed in the business

  • More effective and sustainable implementation of organizational change

  • Greater efficiency from teams acting with more agility and collaboration

  • Increased ability for complex and strategic thinking within your organisation

Fundamentally I believe there are two approaches to coaching: situational and developmental. Both are important at different moments, and both inform each other. Situational coaching is based on exploring the situation at hand by developing and exploring the available options and perspectives, as well as their consequences and how they could be implemented. Developmental coaching focuses on your own development to become capable of more complex and flexible thinking and reacting. By focusing on developmental coaching, even when assessing current situations, you will become more able to handle challenging situations in the future. At the same time, having someone to work through current situations and challenges with is a great support and a key part of the coaching relationship. Developmental coaching often involved being challenged in the following four key areas (Dr Darren Stevens) which enables you to grow through experience.
