What is Executive Coaching & Mentoring?
Put simply, executive coaching is a really effective way to develop your business and yourself to overcome challenges.
It’s bespoke. The programme is designed around your business and you to achieve your specific goals, often that can be learning to manage difficult interpersonal relationships – perhaps with a senior colleague, Board member or Corporate Governance team. Another common area is career development, for example, how to position yourself for promotion and prepare for the new role or how to handle the workload and stress that comes with a senior position. Strategic planning also features up there as you might expect but that’s not it, the examples are almost endless and are always shaped by you.
Coaching gives focus and clarity, it helps those being coached to make decisions and it get things done.
Coaching and mentoring are not the same thing; Mentors answer the questions you ask, they offer advice and examples and we will do this where it’s appropriate but Coaches ask questions for you to answer. Those questions are designed to help you find the best solution to your problem, to examine options, make choices and provoke thinking and will leave you in a significantly better place after the programme. Those who are being coached make substantial changes and improvements to their current situation, they find ways to overcome their challenges and they have new skills and ways of working which will benefit them, and your business, in years to come. Those being mentored learn from other people’s experience.
