Coaching: Corporate Executives, Field Leaders, Teams
What’s Important About Success To Your Company?
In a highly competitive market place where the speed of transformation increases daily, the challenge of maintaining business responsive has become very steep. The enterprise needs the best from its players. Delays due to inexperience, personality issues, or personnel conflicts are extremely costly to the bottom line. However, the cost of retention is far less than the expense of acquiring a new hire.
Often, all that is needed is targeted intervention. It could be focused tactically or strategically.
Companies often engage a coach for a desired outcome similar to why an individual does. Those reasons include resolving friction or increasing flow among a team, providing new response options for a difficult but valuable executive or employee, even training a group on how to improve client interaction.
You’ve heard it said that often the best proactive step a company can take in business is to stop doing something.
What is the Outcome You Need?
How a company answers the question varies. Whether the firm’s success means best-in-class dominance, enhancing corporate influence, the prestige of excellence, creating exceptional shareholder value, making an enduring difference, being a global change agent, or something else, it is the firm’s meaning.
Corporate coaching is corporate-centric.
Companies Engage a Coach Because:
- They want to expand the potential of a key person. They’re being asked to do more with less. What benefits could be gained by neutralizing their weaknesses and maximize their strengths?
- They need a more effective team or department. Sometimes an outside perspective will tip the scales for a paradigm shift. Are there people or groups that are not adapting as fast as market shifts demand?
- They must remove a behavior that gets in the way. We know some behaviors inhibit the ability to reach the goals we seek. This is especially true of executives and department leaders. Is there a critical habit needing transformation?
Corporate Coaching Relationships Are:
- Results driven
- Targeted at quantifiable development and advancement
- Needs to be a good fit for all involved for any lasting progress to be made
- Requires openness to implement new approaches
- Candid & clear: those being coached must engage for change and progress to happen
The Value Of Coaching At An Enterprise Level:
- Are the changes desired important to your firm?
- If we assume for a moment that, one year from now, measurable progress has come from all those changes being implemented, in a word or two, what would this mean to your company?
- What value would you put on that progress?
