My coaching process is a holistic and strength-based approach. I believe that a balanced and effective professional begins with a healthy person.
The coaching process will focus on deepening your awareness and understanding of your primary strengths and discovering ways to bring them forth in your leadership.
We will focus on strengthening your leadership abilities, increasing your resiliency and flexibility, and improving your tolerance for challenges and ambiguity.
I follow what I call the 4 Cs of Executive Coaching:
CAPACITY – This focuses on increasing your ability to be self-aware and to instill a growth mindset. Employing mindfulness as a personal practice, understanding deeply your intentions and values, discovering what is aligned and misaligned in your life, and recognizing your own agility and resiliency.
During this stage, you will take assessments and begin doing reflections to deepen your awareness of your strengths and opportunities for growth.
CULTIVATION – During the life of the coaching, you will learn new strategies and skills to strengthen specific areas of growth . You will be introduced to evidence-based strategies that will make you more effective, productive, and successful, building your ability to take in new ideas and new ways of being.
You will practice new behaviors and overcome the uncomfortableness of stretching and changing.
CONFIDENCE – During this time, the focus is on building your ability to take in new information, behave in different ways, and to pivot with greater ease. You will do “mini experiments” each week to become more comfortable with new strategies and behaviors.
The focus will not be on trying to be 100 percent effective immediately. It is an opportunity to learn, whether from failing or succeeding, and to strengthen your comfort with introducing changes. Each opportunity making you a more confident professional.
As you take actions and develop skills, you will build new “behavioral muscles,” leverage the support and resources available to you, and the skills for working through the complex challenges within today’s workplace.
CONTINUOUS – We will create a plan together for your continued growth and success, for after the end of the coaching relationship. You will walk away knowing exactly what you need to do to sustain your new skills and behaviors.
