Executive Coaching

I was feeling quite low recently, had a 1-2-1 with Andrew at 4N Durham and we arranged a time to look at ways forward for me. Andrew helped me to achieve more change in 90 mins than all of the 16 hours of coaching I had done with another consultant last year. He is compassionate, perceptive and kind.

Executive coaching is a structured and outcome-focused approach. It enables you to find your way through business problems and challenges. By challenging your beliefs about what you hold to be possible, generating solutions and evaluating options you will decide on a final compelling course of action to achieve outstanding results. This approach is widely recognised as a highly effective way of developing key skills such as:

  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Influence
  • Decision-making
  • Confidence
  • Motivation
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Self Regulation

Executive coaching has been shown in studies to be more effective than traditional courses and development programmes. It works because the coach works with you to deliver exactly the results you want. Whilst there are clear outcomes set, how to get there is flexible, both in terms of techniques and timing. This could be managed in two-hour slots over a period of time or a more concentrated approach, depending on your own availability.

Many leaders find that all the right processes are in place but that that is not enough to ensure success. Once the leader is aligned and behaviour is congruent, interpersonal relationships are transformed. The team becomes inspired to succeed and the performance of those you manage and those they manage are transformed.

Many successful people find themselves at a mental crossroads from time to time. When this happens it can feel like there is something missing that you cannot identify and it does not make sense. In senior positions it is often difficult to talk about this scenario for many reasons - not least of which is time! Using a coach for a few hours can produce profound benefits in both your professional and personal life. For busy people who need to be at their best or better, this approach is both efficient and highly effective.
