Our coaching for CEOs is specifically shaped for those who lead their organisations. We understand that the pressures at the head of an organisation are unique. Perpetually in the limelight, constantly ‘on-call’, at the centre of perceptions and the politics of the situation.
The demands on your time and the responsibility that you hold, means that you need to get it right more often than not. The buck stops with you. Potential business success and the risk of failure are your constant companions. You are under scrutiny every second of every day. Making sure your business gets results is forever in your mind.
Our coaches are intelligent, business savvy and informed professionals whom you can trust. Providing the space for you to show up honestly and just be you, no matter how you feel or what is happening in your world. Their role is to be there for you when you need them most.
We realise that you are responsible for managing numerous stakeholders, maximising the collective output of your people and setting the strategic direction. We have worked alongside CEOs for over 25 years. We understand how pivotal your role is and how important it is for you to handle it all effectively.
We understand all these complexities and that it can sometimes feel isolated and lonely. Our coaching offers you the opportunity of someone to talk to when you need those significant conversations. Our coaches will support and challenge you, be a sounding board and strategic thinker with you.
Our coaching is also be informed by our distinctive Story-making Leadership framework. Our approach to leadership is premised on our insight that a key strategic capability for all leaders is to improve their narrative literacy – their capacity to read the stories that swirl around the organisation. It is about purpose, communication and engagement. It is about create compelling new stories and then communicating them succinctly and clearly to every stakeholder group.
Our leadership coaching will also help you identify areas of potential weakness and provide strategies for mitigating against these blind spots. It will go to the heart of your leadership resolve and strengthen your courage to lead effectively and do whatever the role requires.
We will also help you plan your succession. Do you have key people you want to see grow? As CEO, it is your responsibility to have a plan in place for the organisation after you leave. Working with us you can ensure all your potential successors are firing on five cylinders. You know it’s part of your brief to develop your immediate colleagues, to prepare them to take over when you eventually go.
