Eliciting Leadership Excellence TM
Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned executive or someone newly promoted to an executive role, Executive Coaching is a powerful resource for leadership development. Executive Coaching is not about “fixing” executives. It is about accelerating the success of individuals who are committed to maximizing their effectiveness as an executive and a leader.
Our Executive Coaching and Leadership Development Program focuses on Emotional Intelligence competencies and strategic thinking. Customized to each client, our executive coaching will improve leadership effectiveness and executive presence. It often includes an initial 360 °Assessment, ongoing one-on-one coaching, and an assessment at the conclusion of the engagement. Additionally, coaching may include on-site “executive shadowing” if the situation warrants. It offers valuable outside perspective and can help an executive move past blind spots holding them back from success. Collaboratively, we’ll assess areas of strength and opportunities for growth, create a plan for improvement, and assess results – both subjectively and objectively.
Our coaching is about getting better results – results to achieve an organization’s strategic goals. Research shows that in order for leaders to be effective they must master:
- Self-Awareness and Management: These competencies include the ability to read one’s own emotions and appreciate their impact on actions, reactions, and decisions. It also affects a person’s flexibility, adaptability and attitude.
- Organizational Awareness: These competencies include the ability to read the attitudes, politics, and networks within an organization.
- Interpersonal Management: These competencies include effectively developing others, becoming influential, resolving conflict, and building and guiding teams.
MBI’s Leadership Development Program is a proven, systematic methodology to assess and enhance leadership abilities. We use a three-phase process to ensure we achieve your goals.
We use a comprehensive leadership 360° assessment which, when coupled with the results of any previous performance reviews and feedback, allows us to gain an objective perspective on a leader’s strengths and weaknesses.
A Leadership Development Plan is created collaboratively with the coach, the leader, and his or her manager to ensure alignment of goals and expected results. This is followed by one-on-one coaching with the leader. The coaching is custom-designed for the individual and focuses on uncovering blind spots, enhancing leadership competencies, and overcoming performance obstacles.
A final meeting is held with the coach, leader, and manager to review results.
