Executive Development Coaching
The number one focus area that female leaders ask for at the start of our Executive Coaching programs, is improving how they’re perceived. They want their great work to be noticed, they want to be trusted, they want to be heard. They want greater executive presence.
This is not the only reason people engage an Executive Coach, but it is such a sore point that we created a video series to help with it. Keep reading, you’ll see that in a moment.
Ever noticed how some of the most accomplished women are also incredibly humble? We have. We’re always astounded at how many of us suffer from ‘Imposter Syndrome’, how despite having a wealth of experience, we’re still drawn to our own flaws and shortfalls.
Yes, I know you do too. I know that you have a list of skills you’d like to be stronger in. Our Development Coaches are expert at objectively defining where your skills gaps really lay and more importantly, what skills you can leverage for max benefit to you and those around you. Then we get to building those skills, through harnessing past training or resources and applying them in your every day.
Executive Coaching works so well because you learn by applying, reviewing and applying again. You use the muscles to make them grow stronger. Your confidence grows along with your skill set.
Our Executive Coach programs are bespoke, rather than defined time periods. They start with assessments for objective direction setting and typically last from three to twelve months. Executive Coach pricing starts from $450 per session, dependent on the Coach and the length of program.
Gender Gap Gone Executive Coaches are generally in high demand, so you may need to wait some weeks to get a space in a diary. Programs are via video call with your webcam, so your coach effectively comes to you, with cost and time savings.
