C-SUITE

We work with international CEOs, 3* Generals, Civil Servants, NEDs and executive teams helping them evolve their executive impact. The CEO role is unique. Switched on 24/7, called upon to forge collective direction from fragmented thinking, make unpopular decisions, set the pace and strategic direction whilst coaching others to perform to their best.

Our C-Suite coaching programme is designed to augment the board-level skills of new and existing Board members to support you and the Board as you collectively build the best organisation you can.

BOARD EFFECTIVENESS

New joining Board members and the re-configuration of Boards to address growth shifts in the business are useful opportunities to review and raise the effectiveness of Board interactions. We work with Chairs and CEOs to help executive teams and Partners  step up to operating at Board level.

CELEBRITY + FOUNDER

Having reached the highest levels of success have you begun to ask yourself ‘what next?’ Celebrity and Founder Executive Coaching is for those who may feel conflicted or hollowed out by the demands of sustaining their professional identity.  The costs of sustaining your efforts is becoming unacceptable but the ways of letting go are unappealing.  This coaching support is particularly suitable for celebrities, business owners, Professional Services Partners; company directors, professional athletes or media VIPs.  We provide full discretion to enable you the space and time to explore new possibilities with our professional coaches. Our individual and team coaching programmes help those engaged in rapidly growing firms. Our work with Founders often helps them to step back from day-to-day operations, improve well-being and get their businesses ready to pursue exit strategies.

LEADING CHANGE

Sponsoring and leading change projects create different challenges for leaders. Leading change well requires insight, planning, and a keen understanding of how both people and cultural systems respond to perceived disruption.

When leading change, you will have your own needs to meet alongside the wider change agenda, and you will be more effective if you are able to pay attention to these needs within the transition. This often gets lost in the complexities of supporting everyone else through the process. Our executive coaches are ideally placed to provide discreet, confidential support to enable you to manage and lead change exceptionally.

We also offer Supervision for OD and change management consultants engaged in complex systems helping them to better understand the often unconscious dynamics at play.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Our Choice Not Chance® coaching approach builds the agility of leaders to think and work differently with complexity and people. We spark curiosity, challenge limiting mindsets and help as you navigate the power and political structures of your organization.

Great leaders are skilled at projecting influence at executive levels and cascading an engaging worldview across layers of management. You will need to develop the ability to diplomatically manage diverse stakeholders, effectively build senior team capabilities, forge new cultures, foster portfolio strategic thinking, and address reoccurring patterns of behaviour.

Leadership development is complex and fraught with potential pitfalls; our executive coaches can help you find alignment with your own, team and business priorities to succeed.

CROSS-CULTURAL INTEGRATION

Proving yourself in different cultures and markets in order to progress to global general management is often deeply exposing.  Acceptable weaknesses in previous positions now become career blocks.

Our executive coaches have extensive experience in supporting executives and senior leaders to build global relationships.  Finding new ways to engage with local teams whilst remaining visible and collaborative to remote Head Office. Building and managing your global reputation as you progress in the business is critical if you are seeking global board positions – we offer a strong partnership to support your international leadership journey.

4 to 6 coaching sessions are typical to rapidly progress key changes with ongoing conversations with your sponsors.
