Work place coaching or Executive coaching is increasingly recognised as one of the most effective ways to create dynamic, focused organisations and foster executive development.
Executive coaching gives people the freedom to use their talents, skills and experience – while at the same time ensuring clear goals are in place and outcomes are achieved. Specifically, executive coaching can assist managers in becoming more effective leaders of their people and helps significantly progress their executive development.
One on one, or individual coaching is a highly customised service. Our professional coaches are fully trained and accredited in the delivery of tailored development programs for leaders at all levels of organisations, in coaching and other workplace conversations. Through the use of adult learning framework our coaches help executives and business professionals identify and remove those interferences that limits executive development. Executive coaching is a three-way relationship between the coach, counterpart and the counterpart’s organisation.
Some common coaching situations our clients seek help with are:
- Promotion preparation/Succession development
- New to Role
- Career planning
- Preparing for retirement
- Enhancing Communication effectiveness
- Enhancing work place relationships
- Leadership Development
- Work quality improvement
- Using Diagnostic Instruments for Coaching Results
A diagnostic instrument provides a sound basis for beginning a personal development or leadership journey. It can also assist with creating self awareness of personal style. Many people don’t have a realistic assessment of their actual behaviour, and a diagnostic instrument is a useful starting point. When used with individuals in a team, or across an organisation it can also establish a common language to discuss leadership styles and desired approach and behaviours.
Individual coaches at HR Imperative are accredited in a wide range of diagnostic tools, including but not limited to:
- Life Styles Inventory
- Leadership Impact
- Group Styles Inventory
- Organisational Culture Inventory/Organisational Effectiveness Inventory
- Survival or Business Simulations
Genos – Emotional Intelligence
MSCEIT Emotional Intelligence
Myers Briggs Type Indicator
The Leadership Circle
How do we incorporate these tools into our coaching programs?
We work with our clients to select the most appropriate tool for the individual, team or organisation at hand. The diagnostic tool can then be incorporated into a larger program, such as a leadership development program, or form the basis of an individual engagement.
