Executive Coaching and Mentoring for Sustainable Results

Executive Coaching and Mentoring for Sustainable Results

What is Executive Coaching?

Executive coaching is making successful leaders even more successful by driving positive transformation for outstanding outcomes. The process empowers leaders to add more value to the organization they lead and the people around them.

Leaders leverage on their strengths, talents and passions to drive changes for the better. Executive coaching opens the way for leaders to tap deeply into themselves to build upon past wins for greater achievements.

They are also transforming or improving on vital behaviours by closing the gap between performance and expectation. Leaders who overcome their internal and external derailers and roadblocks emerge from the process better positioned for future growth.

Those who experience positive behavior and habit transformation multiply their value exponentially. They powerfully drive their teams to accomplish more to achieve big wins for sustainable success as their influence increases.

Changed leaders become role models for others. By positively transforming their behaviours and habits, leaders make an even bigger impact on their organization, stakeholders, family, friends and the community. They make the world a better place by transforming themselves to multiply the goodness they have.

How is Executive Coaching done?

Executive coaching typically begins by gathering feedback. This feedback is obtained from bosses, direct reports, peers, stakeholders and direct reports anonymously. The information reveals to leaders the strengths they can leverage on to transform and any potential areas for improvement.

Leaders are then coached to focus on the areas they want to transform. This could be a personal development goal or a business goal which is aligned to the organization’s goals. It is measurable and sits within a timeframe.

Employing powerful questions and motivational techniques, the executive coach works to unleash the potential of the leaders and helps them set breakthrough goals which challenges leaders to bring out the best in themselves.

Leaders are coached to tap deep in their creativity to come up with innovative solutions. Doing so allows them to formulate winning strategies for sustainable competitive advantage as well as identify potential roadblocks.

All these powerful ideas are generated by the leaders themselves. These are captured in a coaching log. This log serves as a record and “success diary” throughout the entire coaching journey.

The executive coach will also assist leaders to create a personal accountability system, establish strong support structures and formulate scorecards to ensure leaders stay the course to obtain the desired results.

5 Ways Executive Coaching benefits leaders

1Empowerment

Leaders are empowered when their potential is fully unleashed. A potent combination of trust, great questions, intuition and influence is used by the executive coach to unlock the power of the leader. Leaders are also coached to set breakthrough goals which brings out the best in them and are challenged to take full ownership of the goals they set.

2Alignment

Aligning organizational goals to leaders is vital for sustainable success for both parties. By keeping in sync with the organization, leaders ensure their efforts are contributing to business results. This enhances their credibility at every level of the organization as bosses, peers, direct reports and stakeholders see and experience the value they add from their achievements.

3Clarity

The executive coach coaches leaders to become mentally clear. A clear-minded leader knows what needs to be done, how it needs to be done and when something should be done. They are aware of the required strategies, tactics and actions needed to get the job done successfully as well as overcoming roadblocks along the way.

4Collaboration

Leaders are made aware that wins come when they can optimize collaboration across all levels to achieve the desired results. No one wins alone, even an elite Olympic runner requires an entire team for support in winning the gold medal. Similarly, executive coaching helps leaders to tap on the strengths, talents and passion of people around them for big wins.

5Systems

The executive coach coaches helps leaders to have a strong support structure to ensure plans are executed effectively. Scorecards and follow-up systems would be established for strong accountability and sustainability.

These are just five of the many benefits executive coaching has. Partner with an executive coach and mentor and discover much more benefits.

Executive Coaching: A Case Study of John

John was a sales engineer of a leading equipment supply company who had accumulated a number of customer complaints. In this snapshot of the conversation, see how John benefited from being coached as he was empowered to pursue his goals; aligned with business results; obtained clarity on what needed to be done; collaborated with others; and scheduled another session to put in place systems to ensure success.

John was highly motivated; he made changes and he took action to produce results. This was an effective coaching conversation that clearly demonstrates how a coach uses the positive relational influence of asking questions, listening, and caring, rather than using position.

Where does Executive Mentoring come in?

There are cases where the executive being coached is looking for a subject matter expert and role model in a specific area the executive coach specializes in. If the executive and the executive coach agrees, the executive coach could then play the role of a mentor by engaging in executive mentoring conversations to add value to the leader.

Learn about about mentoring in the book Becoming an Effective Mentoring Leader co-authored by Dr Peter Chee and Pennsylvania State University Professor William J. Rothwell.

Becoming an Effective Mentoring Leader: Whether they need to boost productivity, increase profits, or both—executives are relying more heavily upon mentorship programs for employees in order to improve performance. As a management strategy, it’s a critical tool leaders can use to connect with the workforce, troubleshoot, and build teams. And leaders who mentor make more money, get promoted more quickly and enjoy greater career success than leaders who don’t mentor.
