Executive Coaching

Deep inside us is a desire to make a difference, to make a real contribution, and be recognized as having achieved success. While we sometimes doubt ourselves, or our capabilities, most of us strive to achieve greatness anyway. The seeds of greatness are in each of us, but we must be willing to cultivate those seeds, water them, and bring them into the sunshine to help them grow. An effective executive coach does just that- helps you to understand your own "seeds of greatness" and guides your development efforts to help them grow.

In choosing your own pathway to personal greatness, have you considered what matters most in your life? Who are those people you cherish the most? What is the legacy all your hard work will achieve for others to appreciate? If your life were a portrait, what kind of painting would you be? If you had to choose, what would you paint? Executive coaching provides the individual with a canvas, a pallet, and many brushes from which to choose.

Executive coaching provides an individual recipient the an opportunity to explore defining success on his or her own terms, and create a plan to pursue it. The individual is in control of his or her destiny. The executive coach helps to focus them individual on what is important, why, and helps them build a plan to pursue it.

Executives and senior managers often function under tight schedules with little time taken to assess their own effectiveness. As the leaders of their organizations, they are expected to have both sound business acumen and ‘leadership skills’. The latter skills represent that constellation of qualities and capabilities that encompasses people management, problem solving, decision-making, credibility, discipline, motivation, effective communication, etc.

People are not born with these skills; they develop them over time. This building process begins with an informed, objective source. Taugher Change Catalyst Consulting consultants provide this resource to executives and managers. Because of the breadth and depth of our experience, we offer confidential feedback that is grounded in the real world of business today.

Leaders progressing through the ranks sometimes reach a level of responsibility where the expectations for results challenges their competencies. An executive coach provides a valued service of assessing what the individual needs to continue his/her growth, and helping that person put a plan in place to accomplish it. Individuals in the sports world do this all the time, seeking out the guidance and direction for a sports coach. They know that someone else observing their actions from the outside and helping them alter their approach can make the difference between being an average player and a great player. The process works the same for business executives. A little bit of guidance and coaching can go a long way to help us "see the forest through the trees”, and make that critical knowledge or interpersonal style change that makes a difference in how we achieve results.
