Executive coaching tackles the fast-paced changes occurring within organizations by providing an executive with time for reflection and contemplation, both of which are key components of the coaching process. Executive coaching provides a strategic partnership to the leader and potentially teams they lead who want to develop and advance leadership skills, innovative and strategic thinking as well as deepen learning with real-time issues that are faced. Because leaders represent the foundation of an organization’s strength, investing in coaching opportunities which guide the professional development of leaders pays large dividends. Executive coaching allows the leader to develop those skills in a supportive environment in order to target specific developmental needs which lead to alignment of strategic vision and values throughout all levels of the organization.
Executive coaching offers a variety of benefits including strengthening and enhancing business strategies and performance; improving relationships; transitioning through roles and changing careers; improvement in emotional intelligence; building leadership and communication skills; balancing work with personal life; and gaining greater clarity about mission, values and purpose.
The Imago Process begins with a 360° assessment of the executive in order to establish both baseline information and direction for the coaching. The needs of the executive are interwoven into the feedback obtained from the instrument. Additional assessments may be used to surface information necessary for the growth and development of the executive.
