Senior managers - advantages of coaching over six 90 minute sessions
We have been coaching senior managers for over a decade, across industries as broad as television, the music business, education through to marketing, sales and finance. Our two senior coaches - Dr Tony Evans and Doug Osborne bring a cutting edge psychological approach alongside a cast iron awareness of the intrinsic pressures of the commercial environment.
We wanted to share with you some of the key areas that our clients have identified over the past few years.
Things our clients noticed
An increase in both personal and professional success
An appreciation of an external third party to discuss "political matters" within a confidential environment
A noticeable expansion in choice dealing with complex interpersonal issues
A greater appreciation of the variety of valid approaches to problem solving within their teams and reports - and a greater flexibility in allowing their teams to deal in their own way with challenges
Greater power to influence successfully
A more relaxed approach to work
Greater time efficiency and better time boundaries
Growth in their ability to "work smarter" (not harder)
A shift in their view that "coaching was for problem busting" toward coaching as a ongoing support vital for increased productivity and wellbeing at work
