Realizing Career Aspirations
We guide executives in navigating personal, professional, and organizational realities en-route to realizing their career aspirations.
Our Executive Coaches are engaged when business leaders face significant career setbacks, many of which directly challenge their sense of purpose, confidence, and self-esteem.
Perhaps the most frequently cited triggers of this self-doubt and uncertainty are the loss of a job, being overlooked for a long-anticipated promotion, and business failure. Paradoxically, starting a new position, securing the long-sought-after promotion, and achieving tremendous business success are also common triggers.
Engagements begin with open discussions about skills, successes, challenges, and goals. We explore organizational and other contextual factors to understand the obstacles encountered. Various assessment instruments including the Hogan, Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0), Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), The Leadership Preferences Inventory (LPI), DiSC Profiles (Workplace, Management, Work Of Leaders) and 360 Degree Feedback instruments are completed to hone in on strengths and challenges. When appropriate, managers, peers, direct reports, and customers are also.
Ultimately, salient feedback themes, insights gained through the assessments, guided introspection, and extensive discussion are distilled, documented, and analyzed. An Executive Development Plan outlining robust cognitive and behavioral strategies to maximize overall effectiveness and realize career goals is crafted. That's the easy part!
Executing the Executive Development Plan is far more complicated and requires discipline and perseverance. We provide the ongoing one-on-one coaching support and guidance necessary to realize the prioritized goals.
Motivated leaders who accept and act upon the objective and constructive guidance provided achieve significant gains in a short period. Are you ready to start your executive coaching engagement?
