What is executive team coaching and how could it help your team?
Executive Team Coaching focuses on creating an effective group dynamic rather than on individual development. It is designed to produce high-performing senior teams whose skills complement one another and who work together to achieve overarching business ambitions.
The most effective teams are strongly aligned with the goals of the organisation and collaborate effectively to support team members in achieving those goals.
At the highest level of the organisation, main boards, executive boards and operating boards can all benefit from coaching that helps optimise individual contributions and build a sense of collective team responsibility.
What are the benefits of executive team coaching?
Teams that benefit from coaching often suffer from unhelpful dynamics – be they personal, cultural or institutional – that prevent them from operating as a coherent whole. The coaching process helps identify barriers to effective team performance and puts in place processes and practices that help team members resolve their grievances, value the contribution of others and develop ways of working that bring out the best in all team members.
Benefits of Executive Team Coaching include:
- Identify barriers to greater team performance and work to remove these barriers
- Improve communication among team members and create a greater understanding of how others feel and behave
- Create cohesive, competent teams that work together effectively towards organisational goals
- Give teams the ability to self-diagnose future issues as they arise and take steps to address them effectively
- Drive team productivity and performance which in turn drives business growth
What is the executive team coaching process with AGP?
AGP works with senior-level teams to develop skills and behaviours that deliver exceptional results for their organisation.
Our Executive Coaches will diagnose the team dynamic and identify barriers to optimum performance. We will then put in place a series of specific interventions that help build team unity and coherence.
We create bespoke development plans that identify individual and team strengths, highlight areas for improvement and align with your organisational objectives.
By working in partnership, over time, teams will achieve the self-awareness and adaptability that empowers them to make better decisions, improve communication and enjoy stronger working relationships.
Our unrivalled knowledge of business and client culture allows us to develop behaviours that enable teams to unlock their potential faster and deliver outstanding results for the organisation.
Our programmes are flexible, however we suggest a minimum of four sessions is required to put teams firmly on the path to sustained self-improvement.
Our coaches understand the urgency for some coaching needs and will make themselves available to ensure clients achieve their desired goals, in their given timeframes.
Our clients trust us to find the right person at the first time of asking
I would recommend Tony in a heartbeat.
Tony has a wide network across the UK retail market and knows what’s going on across sectors. Tony is able to match his clients to candidates in smart partnerships with close consideration of cultural fit, which is very rare in my experience.
As a candidate, Tony always kept me updated on the progress of any project and then remained in touch throughout the assignment, providing valuable executive support and advice.
I am always grateful that Tony picks up the phone to me frequently with such interesting opportunities
Following a change in career direction, I was fortunate enough to work with Tony in some 1:1 coaching sessions. Tony’s style of coaching is excellent – he builds rapport easily and asks probing, perceptive questions that enabled me to clarify my thought processes.
His challenging but empathetic style really delivered for me. He encouraged me to self-reflect and recognise my underlying concerns. Once I had this clarity, he really helped me to identify and evaluate potential options and alternatives.
I came away from our coaching sessions with real insight into my concerns and a clear action plan to make the positive changes I needed.
I have known Tony for some time both as a client and candidate and he never fails to impress. He quickly and efficiently understands the brief and then delivers strong candidates who have the necessary skills and expertise.
Tony invests time in both his clients and his candidates even when there is nothing specific to discuss. This is what makes him a great search specialist: he is approachable, engaging, warm and incredibly well-networked.
