Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching is an inquiry-based approach to personal and professional development that is aimed at creating awareness, generating action, and facilitating learning and growth.  At Alethia we understand that Personal Enhancement is a comprehensive strategy made to fit each person’s strengths, disciplines, personality, and success motivators.  Before benchmarks can be set, we define each individual’s behavior, attitude and background by getting to know the person.

Executive Coaching involves:

  • Gathering and giving feedback
  • Identifying development opportunities
  • Building awareness
  • Facilitating solutions by asking powerful questions
  • Setting goals and creating action plans
  • Facilitating learning
  • Supporting and encouraging over the long term
  • Monitoring progress and holding others accountable

Executive Coaching is not:

  • Telling, teaching, or giving advice
  • Counseling, therapy, or consulting
  • Correcting mistakes
  • Managing performance
  • Solely focused on fixing problem behaviors
  • Mentoring

The benefits of Executive Coaching include:

  • Enhancing performance and increased productivity
  • Increased self-awareness
  • Increased self-regulation
  • Greater empathy and emotional intelligence
  • Flexible thinking replacing rigid thinking
  • Higher levels of motivation
  • More effective leadership
  • Improving morale
  • Reducing turnover
  • Attracting talent
  • Increasing self-esteem and confidence
  • Leveraging of talents
  • Building new skill sets
  • Increasing likelihood that goals will be reached

Project Definition

A typical executive coaching engagement is about 6-12 months in duration, but can be anywhere from 3-24 months, depending on the situation.  The greater the change that is needed, the more coaching is required.

Executive coaches are often brought into organizations to work with:

  • High potentials who need additional support to reach the next level
  • Managers who are valuable to the company but have key performance issues to address
  • Executives who have been recently hired or promoted and need to make an immediate impact

Project Process

Executive coaching engagements typically follow these steps:

  • Intake and assessment (including DISC, Motivators, Hartman Value Profile, Learning Styles, EiQ2 and 360 feedback)
  • Goal setting
  • Ongoing coaching and skill development
  • Measurement of results

Cost

Engagements can vary depending on time, location and duration.  If the coach is certified, experienced and has a track record of great results, the price will typically be higher than coaches who do not possess these attributes.  All engagements and costs are custom to each clients needs.  We will be happy to give a complimentary consultation to determine how to fit executive coaching into your budget.
