Frequently Asked Questions about Executive Coaching
Usually the core aspect of executive coaching is that individual being coached (known as the coachee) is an executive. The coachee is someone in a leadership position with the responsibilities and commitments that go along with that. Executive coaching is also known as high-performance or peak-performance coaching, is about exploring, and discovering the authentic self of the individual, revealing in the process unconscious emotions, beliefs, and thought patterns that might be blocking them from reaching their full potential. This type of coaching is not only useful in the workplace but also serves to enhance your personal life. Kilburg defines executive coaching as a “helping relationship formed between a client who has managerial authority and responsibility in an organisation and a consultant who uses a wide variety of behavioural techniques and methods to assist the client to achieve a mutually identified set of goals …” (Kilburg, 2007, p. 28)
Executive coaching is about challenging and supporting executives and leaders to help them clear perceptual distortions, build their skills, improve their performance in a balanced way that will ultimately lead to the fulfilment of their vision and increase their resilience to rising levels of stress and overwhelm. These goals are usually related to the organisation sponsoring the coaching but can include the transition of the coachee leaving the organisation too.
There are many layers to coaching from the most basic of overcoming performance issues, dealing with new level of relationship dynamics, learning how to deal with increased levels of stress and discovering deeper layers to themselves by revealing their hidden aspects and blind spots.
Industry professionals are increasingly turning to executive coaches for leadership development, peak performance training and support during the transformative process of self-discovery.
Whether you’re a business owner, manager, team leader or entrepreneur the stakes are always high and learning never stops. There is always something new to incorporate; new strategies and perspectives, different customer types to consider and employees to motivate.
Integrative Executive Coaching teaches you how to deal with complex decision making by understanding yourself and others; your strengths and weaknesses, limiting beliefs and your untapped potential.
If you’re in search of guidance around how you can advance and excel as a human being, not only in your career or business but throughout your life, then what you’re looking for is an executive coach.
You will learn how to focus your awareness, direct your thinking, gain clarity in situations, and overcome stress. You’ll also be equipped to apply what you’ve learned, both in your professional and personal life. The success you’ll achieve is only limited by the level in which you are willing to commit.
Commitment to the process will lead you to:
- Build Emotional Resilience
- Manage Stress
- Stop Overthinking
- Navigate Career Changes
- Overcome Setbacks
- Dissolve Inner Conflict
One of the biggest obstacles an executive coach faces is often the time it takes for the client to open up, let their defences down and share honestly. It is totally natural for most people to want to hide their so called vulnerabilities and weaknesses. This is something that we have all learnt how to do. We hide behind a mask and this is the first layer an executive coach will encourage you to lower. This isn’t always conscious, many of our defenses are unconscious and were created for good reason in early childhood, however now as adults those very same defenses can become the obstacles that limit our success lie.
So, the best way to prepare for your first session is to start by writing down everything you would like to work on, change or improve, those things that you believe are standing in your way and share that with your executive coach in your first session.
Also approach the coaching process with an open mind and an attitude of commitment. To tap into your unlimited potential, you will need to invest in and commit to the process of transformation. Your executive coach is there to help you, so being completely open and honest is only going to help you.
An executive coach acts as your sounding board, motivator and accountability partner. Coaching empowers you to find the answers within yourself by your coach asking you the right questions and helping you shifting your perspective and discover new opportunities.
Coaching for executives and business owners are important because it gives you a greater sense of meaning and fulfilment, which is a fundamental driver in our life. The majority of business leaders have blind spots and need an executive coach to shine a light on those problem areas so you can continue to grow, and your team and family can thrive.
The integrative process usually starts with an Discovery Consultation of 40 minutes, during which we’ll establish how we’ll work together and identify the areas you want to focus on.
As your sessions progress we’ll discover what is blocking you from achieving your vision life while helping you:
- Increase self-awareness.
- Enhance growth opportunities.
- Develop a harmonious relationship with people.
- Improve conflict resolution.
- Increased emotional intelligence and emotional management.
- Overcome limiting beliefs and increase your confidence.
- Resolve past traumatic patterns.
- Grow and expand your creativity and intuition.
Your executive coach will skillfully guide you through the many different layers of your inner world, supporting you and encouraging you along the way. We are here to help you.
The integrative approach teaches you how to master your awareness and emotions and achieve your full potential. The process is fundamentally experiential rather than intellectual, helping you reveal positive change. Lasting change can only happen through the transformative power of integrating your unconscious emotions with conscious awareness. This process will help you to fully experience the full support and power that lies within you.
Executive coaching can be considered as “the hero’s journey” as termed by Joseph Campbell. It is truly a path of opening oneself to the deeper dimensions of consciousness in a hope to discover a profoundly new way of being to bridge certain gaps and transcend challenges within an organization, the world and more importantly oneself.
Of course the quick fix sounds far more appealing after that, and can give a momentary glimmer of a possibility, but nothing sustainable or transformative. That which is transformative is initially disintegrating, disruptive and deeply disturbing, only then does the new self emerge from that alchemy, the transformation of lead into gold. The hero emerges from the journey into depths with the holy grail so to speak, this is the journey your executive coach will guide you through.
