We believe that every leader deserves someone they can trust, a sparring partner with whom challenges and changes are easier to face.
What attitudes and thought patterns guide you as a leader? These are the ones your business coach challenges you on and questions when they stand in the way of your growth and goals.
The goals of business coaching are defined with you, your manager and your coach so that both you and your employer benefit from them. The same trio also has a discussion at the end of the coaching process.
Together, you will also select the indicators by which the results will be monitored. Some monitor the development of interactions for example with 360 reviews, and others tie coaching goals to business goals and job satisfaction measurements.
The investment pays for itself in many ways: the investments are reflected both in company growth and in the improvement of your well-being at work and in your ability to renew.
Have you been appointed to a senior management position, with a decisive 100 days ahead of you? Or got to lead a strategic project critical to the company? Or maybe you're facing a new leadership challenge? How do you take over a new management team or team?
The future leader will act proactively and be able to lead himself in different situations and operating environments. Past experience may no longer be key, but more important is the ability to renew one's own thinking, unlearn and develop one's leadership. Challenging thinking is a prerequisite for keeping up with changes as well as for leading renewal.
The coach acts as your thinking partner by challenging existing beliefs, insight and sparring. Business coaching helps you set and achieve goals that are meaningful to you.
"Coaching has "forced" me to think about what I want to use my expertise for and in which direction I want to take my career and spend my time. It has clarified my thoughts."
