Executive Coaching

 

Executive Coaching

We can design and deliver coaching that can meet the needs of the Executive. 

"Data collected to date reveals that coaching generally does help executives to become more effective leaders and can offer substantial return on an organisations investment." (Nelson and Hogan)

We can choose from a suite of tools - 

  • Benchmark Leadership 360 feedback
  • Hogan Personality Assessments
  • Self-and-peer feedback 
  • Resilience tools
  • Workplace strategies to enhance development

This will occur through one-on-one coaching in an environment that is respectful to the needs of the individual. Each session will bring insight to enlighten them for the future. The coaching can happen dislocated from the workplace or on site dependent on time constraints and workload.

The advantages of awareness coaching:

  1. "Awareness coaching offers participants sufficient time to build rapport with a professional coach.
  2. Awareness coaching maintains scientifically valid personality assessment as its driving force.
  3. Most importantly, participants overwhelmingly cite awareness building, the central focus of awareness coaching, as the most helpful part of any coaching engagement." (Awareness Coaching article, Hogan) 

An old Chinese proverb says "the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago... and the second best time is now".  We believe this can be said about your career too.

    Ashley has worked with an array of leaders who have all demonstrated the many and varying styles of leadership. Through an understanding of leadership profiling and the use of development tools, Ashley has aided in their leadership awareness and effectiveness whilst working in an austere environment. Ashley utilises a fully participative instructional delivery style. His inclusive approach allows all to own the lesson/discussion and thereby draw on personal examples to improve. Ashley is an open and enthusiastic individual. His zest for life creates a positive vibe that encourages people to achieve. Challenging people to move out of their comfort zone has associated risk. Ashley puts safety first whilst still achieving challenging and dynamic environments.
