An Executive Coach is someone who is qualified to support, encourage, challenge and motivate you to achieve your goals. As she celebrate your successes, helps you discover how to overcome obstacles, identifies your strengths and weaknesses, and enables you to move forward at a far greater pace than you could achieve on your own, her ultimate goal is your success.
Executive Coaching works because it allows you to focus on exactly what you want to achieve and helps you get there at an accelerated rate. Everyone has a "busy" life but what are we actually getting accomplished? By using an Executive Coach, you will be working with someone who is 100% dedicated to you and your future. As you stay focused on what you want to accomplish, your Executive Coach will continue to identify options available to you in order to achieve success.
People who hire an Executive Coach are looking to gain self-awareness, achieve financial and personal goals or they are looking for improved team dynamics and productivity in the workplace. They see career and business development as strategic imperatives in being successful.
During each session we will recap on the actions set and achieved from the last session and look at general progress and successes. We will then set a ‘session goal’ to clearly set out what you want to achieve by the end of the day’s session. We then explore where you are at the moment with that particular goal; what you have tried; what has worked and any obstacles you have come across along the way. We then explore all the possible options in achieving that goal, using lots of techniques to really extract options that you have never thought of before.
Executive Coaching sessions take approximately 50 minutes. These sessions can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly, whatever suits your life and the speed at which you can take actions to achieve your goals.
This depends on what you want to achieve with your coaching. Most people come to a Executive Coach with a goal in mind. In order to achieve this goal, we will create an action plan that is unique to each individual. For some people the action plan may take as little as 3 to 6 sessions and for others it will be more.
In the majority of cases the coaching will take place over the phone, with the client phoning the coach. This has proven to be the most convenient way for individuals to fit coaching into their busy lives. Other than the phone, you will need a quiet room with no distractions where you can totally focus on the conversation. Face to face coaching or coaching by Skype sessions are all available.
Coaching costs about the same amount of money as seeing any health professional. Sessions prices are as low as $200 per hour and last approx 50 minutes. This really is a very small price to pay for the life changing experience that you desire.
To get the best from Executive Coaching, you need have a positive attitude towards the achievement of your goal. You need to be totally open, trusting and honest within the coaching relationship. You need to have the time and commitment to complete the actions that you will set yourself at the end of each session. These actions are what will move you closer to your overall goal. Ultimately your level of commitment will directly influence the speed and extent to which your goals will be realized. To help you with all of this, the coach provides boundless motivation, support and encouragement within a confidential and non-judgmental environment.
The biggest benefit of Executive Coaching is that you will have someone that is solely dedicated to you and the achievement of your goals. Executive Coaches keep you focused on where you want to be and moving forward in the right direction all the while being non-judgmental, supportive, encouraging and motivational. An Executive Coach will help you get to where you want to be, much faster than you could on your own.
Coaching and counselling are similar in the sense that both counselors and coaches ask the client questions, sometimes requiring a lot of soul-searching. Neither a counselor nor a coach will give advice but they will listen to what you say and direct the conversation with further pertinent questions. However, whereas the typical counselling session will be dealing with emotions and issues in the past affecting the present, the coaching relationship is focused on the future and deals with optimizing the opportunities in your life for you to ultimately achieve greater happiness.
