There are 2 types of coaches – supportive and experts. A supportive coach will assist through asking questions and validating feelings. Expert coaches like us are more like elite sports coaches – we can actually offer solutions that work for you, in your unique situation.
What you can achieve with our coaching:
- Significantly increase your level of self-awareness
- Develop flexibility in using non-preferred leadership styles
- Improve your listening, communication and influencing skills
- Develop increased personal authority and confidence
- Improve your strategic thinking and decision making
- Learn how to navigate organisational politics
- Become skilled at having difficult conversations
Our approach is honest, insightful, supportive and focussed on getting leaders more effective and happier in their roles. The basic idea of coaching is to have expert assistance with building skills in relation to leadership, management and commercial acumen to either solve current problems or to set you up for future success. Through working with a coach you are able to recognise and address patterns of behaviour that are usually impossible to see in yourself.
As coaches, we provide you with a feedback loop that bypasses your ego defenses, enabling you to grow and develop. Because we can explain what we observe, you can make sense of your own and other people’s behaviour with our help. You will be able to see the benefits of learning new patterns of behaviour and we will guide you on taking the first steps.
How to Select Your Coach
Coaching expertise comes from experience and reflection and we have honed our coaching skills over 19+ years. You should select a coach who, like us, coaches full-time (less than 1 in 10 do!). In addition, select a coach who has many years experience in coaching people at your level. Your coach also needs to demonstrate their capacity for understanding you, not sticking to a formula they might have learned from a certification course.
We are well known in Melbourne for our ability to solve even the most difficult leadership issues. Our ability to ‘get’ people almost instantly has been remarked upon by most of our clients. We have been coaching full-time longer than most and we work with senior managers and executives, including CEOs.
With over 5,000 hours combined experience in executive coaching, you can be confident that we will be able to propel you towards leadership excellence and career success.
