Executive Coaching

The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.

- Steve Jobs

No matter the endeavor, when performance is the name of the game, coaching is integral to success. No athlete would dream of trying out for the Olympics without a great coach.

Like an athletic coach, an executive coach assesses current status, understands goals, and helps work out a plan to get there. Coaching takes an individual or team on an exciting journey of self-examination and growth. Our coaches work closely with you, offering insights and encouragement along the way.

Our Coaching Philosophy

Change Management (CM) has coached successful executives for over 40 years. Our philosophy is simple. We believe:

1

Coaching is fundamental to exceptional performance.

2

Coaching is a collaboration, a partnership. You provide the motivation. We provide guidance and tools for growth.

3

Coaching can be taught and learned. We teach coaching skills that are transferable to the executive’s reports, ensuring that performance goals are achieved.

CM coaches accelerate change, the desire to raise the performance bar, and the achievement of business goals.

Executive Coaching Process

CM customizes each coaching program to meet the needs of the individual executive or team and the organization’s business goals. Our process differs from other coaching techniques by using real-time business issues as our laboratory for coaching.

Our process begins with :

  • Individual assessments and feedback sessions
  • Identification of development needs
  • Identification of gaps
  • Formulation of a development plan
  • Ongoing coaching sessions to produce successful behavioral and organizational outcomes
