An Executive Coach as your Trusted Thinking Partner
How can a Thinking Partner help you?
Let’s face it, we are not our own best listener...your brain is wired to agree with you! And...it is hard to find an objective colleague who has the guts to be totally truthful within your company.
A Thinking Partner Will Push You To:
Focus and clarify changes you need to pursue
Wrestle with key challenges
Consider and test new options
Take bold actions
Speed you to meaningful results
Working With a Thinking Partner is Not a “piece of cake”. Prepare For Some Discomfort as You Are:
asked tough questions
pushed to view things in new ways
It’s a 2-Way Street to Focus**Action**Results**
Focus and clarify together
take ownership for new Actions
So, What Happens Next*?
Our work together will be based on:
Focus – the first step is to clarify your transition. We’ll do that by bringing data to the table, use existing or suggested assessments …we’ll sift and sort to make sense of it
Action – explore options, set milestones, make a commitment and be accountable for taking action
Results – it’s all about getting a return on the investment you make
Note: *Each engagement is tailored to suit your schedule. Typically we set a minimum of 6 months and our time together consists of either two or four scheduled sessions per month, and can be a blend of face to face and virtual meetings
