What is executive leadership coaching?
Executive Leadership Coaching develops skills and behaviours that create effective leaders who in turn deliver exceptional results for their organisation.
Our Executive Coaches help identify leaders’ individual strengths and key areas for development and create bespoke plans to harness their skills, improve their weaknesses and help them sustain effective behaviours and high levels of performance.
We focus on developing critical competencies such as communication, influence and emotional intelligence that hold the key to an effective leadership style.
Our collaborative, creative coaching is tailored to the specific individual and business need. We work with clients to understand your expectations for the coaching programme. We then develop tailored plans that align with the objectives of all stakeholders and deliver the desired results for the organisation.
Through 1-2-1 sessions with our Executive Coaches we create a strong and trusting partnership that builds personal confidence and provides individuals with the tools and techniques they need to become expert leaders in their field.
We also focus on fostering more inclusive leadership styles that can respond to individual needs and drive team performance.
Benefits of Executive Leadership Coaching include:
• A challenging but supportive coaching environment which encourages self-learning and improvement
• The ability for senior executives to discover and develop their own authentic leadership style
• Tools and techniques that can be used to develop and then sustain an effective leadership style
• The confidence to inspire and motivate teams and build productive working relationships
What does leadership coaching include?
Self-learning is at the heart of our approach. We create bespoke development plans that identify individual strengths, highlight areas for improvement and set personal and professional goals.
By working in partnership, over time, senior leaders 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 people to unlock their leadership 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 executives firmly on the path to sustained self-improvement. We also offer a complimentary discovery session prior to any leadership coaching, to explore how you and your coach might work together.
A session normally lasts for two hours. We think of the process in terms of a two-way conversation during which our coach will ask powerful questions and challenge current thinking, feelings or behaviours. Our carefully curated questions help you self-identify your own solutions, so you instinctively know the actions you need to take to improve your performance.
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.
