Life and Executive Coaching :
Successful coaching is a series of ongoing conversations that lead to superior performance, higher productivity, sustained improvement, and positive relationships. Coaching is the tool and essence of a company’s cultural change initiatives. A transformed organization is one in which getting the job done and growing people are both vital. When you wholeheartedly believe in the potential of others, you not only bring out the best in people, but also help them go way beyond their perceived potential. Organizations that include and commit to all levels of coaching and mentoring as an integral part of their operations, often report dramatic improvements in employee morale, motivation, retention, and overall productivity.
Our coaches and consultants come from a variety of backgrounds and pedagogies. All of our coaches have earned advanced degrees and many have their doctorates as well. Whether you are looking for life coaching, executive coaching, or career coaching, we have a professional on our team that we can match you up with.
Group Executive Coaching :
Our latest initiative is centered on encouraging organizations to consider “group executive coaching” as a new modality in conjunction with individual coaching. Group coaches and dyadic coaches share some commonalties, but also differ in foci and methodology.
"Executive coaching" is more often than not thought of as "one-to-one" or dyadic. Indeed, most coaching today does follow that same trend. An important distinction must be made between "group executive coaching" (GEC) and other forms of group work such as facilitation, teambuilding, training, and moderation; all of which are sometimes confused with group coaching. Coaching in groups requires a different set of tools and competencies, only some of which are transferable from dyadic coaching. When the setting changes from "one-to-one" to "one-to-many,” the work becomes quite complex and calls for a new set of skills and a deeper understanding of group dynamics; in particular, the “psychodynamics of groups.”
Working with groups offers significant advantages to the client, such as cost savings (as compared with dyadic coaching), a departure from the "silo" mentality, conflict resolution, vicarious experiential learning, and an enhanced understanding of how our own behavior impacts the group primary task and our colleagues in the organization.
Our firm developed the methodology for the course in consultation with world-renowned scholar-practitioners. The program is multidisciplinary in content and draws from diverse fields such as systems thinking, psychodynamics, and appreciative inquiry. Experiential learning requires the use of the self as an instrument for change. Participants can hope to be intimately involved in the learning process. During the course, they will be introduced to coaching and mentoring competencies designed to enhance their personal and professional effectiveness. This will be accomplished through simulated role-plays, exercises in visioning, and hands-on skill building in a group setting.
