Cultural shift, a serious and often necessary piece of change management, is often the root cause for bringing in coaching support. The key reason that any kind of executive coaching support or training is successful, is when the coaching is regular, ongoing, challenging and supportive. There is no quick ‘sticking plaster’ approach to coaching yourself or your leadership team, and impartial executive coaching should be seen a good practice for any executive. Because every individual or company’s needs are different we suggest starting with a conversation with our MD Steve Nicholls.
Our professional life and career is a very important aspect that requires attention, passion, dedication and a zeal to keep learning and growing. We are never too old to learn something new and none of us can ever know everything! Successful people understand the need to seek new learning opportunities, broaden your knowledge and understanding, and strive for continuous growth. Thus, Leadership Coaching is essential for anyone who strives for complete career success.
Executive leadership coaching is a 1:1 coaching that enables a person to work on individual skills- weaknesses and strengths- to maximize your potential.
Executive leadership coaching can only be successful when the coaching is ongoing, challenging, and supportive when provided by a leadership coaching company.
Executive Connexions is a reputed and trusted name in the field of executive, career, and leadership coaching. With many years in the business, we understand the specific needs of our clients and provide tailor made solutions to suit a broad range of budgets.
The First 100 Days, also referred to as the First 90 Days, is the critical early stage in a new role in executive coaching and leadership development, particularly at a senior level. It’s the time to make a good impression, take some impactful decisions, absorb the culture, align with the needs and different personalities of the business. At this stage, most executives need an external support to cope up with all the new changes, challenges and responsibilities. We can support this critical phase of a new role, and also add this input to a career coaching programme tailored to help you land your next big role.
Coaching in leadership with Executive Connexions maximises your potential, improves your skills and puts you in a position ahead of everyone else. This is not done by investing into your average executive coaching, it occurs when you develop your personal leadership skills, building more relationships and communications, and meeting more defined goals faster with coaching leadership development.
Executive leadership coaching benefits include the following coaching leadership skills gained:
Your leadership coaching is tailored directly to your own needs. However, here are some of the reasons you may need it:
Before I started to work with Executive Connexions, I successfully worked as CFO and CEO in a small stock listed distribution company (sales: €36M) in Singapore for five years. As the main shareholder decided to change the strategic direction and my term was not renewed, he offered me another role in which I could contribute my financial skills.
However, this was far from equivalent to the scope, responsibilities and action radius I had before – so I was very frustrated and decided to look for approaches in the job search I have never used before. Additionally, I was looking for a way to increase my then rather poor networking skills – as before in the pure financial roles I was never interested in it, but I knew this was a weakness.
I connected with Steve through LinkedIn and found him to be easy to speak to and flexible to my schedule.
His way of working matched more of who I was and how I worked, so working together through some hard topics was much easier.
I have a direction where I want to go and I have been working to adjust my skill set and education to get me to where I want to be. I have already received invites for lecturing events and plan to continue that in the future.
Although my redundancy had been anticipated for a long time and hadn’t been a surprise, I was determined to use it as a chance to launch a new career.
The problem was, however, that there is a big difference between what I imagined going through redundancy would be like in theory and what it is like in reality.
I secured support for career coaching and the “Be Found” programme as part of my redundancy settlement. Delays to the redundancy process also meant that I had 6 month’s notice (effectively gardening leave), which having been continually employed for over 30 years was a very new experience, and at times very unsettling.
