Coaching Executives for Leadership and Presence

We organize our approach to executive coaching around two things:

  • The work that business owners, managers, senior leadership, and the CXO suite do to move the company forward, and
  • The personal skills, habits and attitudes needed to make those happen.

Executive presence can be an even more elusive concept than leadership. Presence is a mix of credibility, trustworthiness, charisma, composure, and similar characteristics. This includes identifying, measuring, and improving your specific emotional intelligence capabilities.

Who Are You?

CEO or Business Owner or Senior Executive

Executive work includes staying current with industry trends and the competition, creating a vision (3-5 years), deciding on short-term goals (mission, next 1-2 years), organizing and delegating goals to staff, deciding on compensation / benefits, and more.

The skills needed include strategic thinking, negotiation, communications, teamwork, delegation, accountability, self-management, relationship management, to name a few.

Of course, people throughout the company can benefit greatly learning and using the same skills, but at higher levels, those skills drive 90% of your success.

Only 10% of your success comes from the expertise in the area you started your career with (engineering, manufacturing, finance, etc.).

On our Leadership Coaching page towards the bottom, our “Navigating the Skills Curve” presentation illustrates this concept.

What Brings You Here?

As an executive, chances are you’ve been to leadership programs, seminars, workshops, and retreats covering those topics, especially if you were considered a high-potential employee.

Even if you attended one of those courses just last week, as soon as you walked in the office, it’s highly likely you had to put the class binder and your notes on the shelf. People were waiting for your input, problems were bubbling up from your team, and your boss needed an update yesterday.

Or maybe you did have a chance to try a few of the things you learned, but you didn’t quite get the results that the course facilitators or trainers talked about. Now you aren’t sure what went wrong or how to get back on track. And there’s no one to ask.

What Do You Want to Work On?

You want to spend your time on activities that have the highest payoff for the company and your team. That means employing your highest and best talents and avoiding or delegating those things that require your weaker talents.

But which is which? Are you managing yourself well, but it’s managing relationships that is the problem? Are you confident that what you want to delegate is accurate but you aren’t communicating well with your direct report? How do you develop people to eagerly accept accountability for their work?

How Will You Get There?

We work with you to lay out a plan.

For example, the diagram below shows one of our fundamental approaches to help people get a grip on the flood of to-dos, priorities, and projects. It works at every level, personally and professionally, and in all types and sizes of organizations.

As with all diagrams, we don’t assume that life and business happens this neatly or sequentially. Still, we have used it to guide our clients (and ourselves, for that matter) for years with great success.
