There are times in the life of executives when it's important to pause and reflect on how they are leading their organizations and what they want in their future. It’s moments like these when engaging an executive coach as an objective sounding board, strategic thinking partner and trusted and confidential advisor can turn feelings of uncertainty, doubt and sometimes loneliness into clarity of focus, increased confidence, greater alignment between best work and organizational needs, and a deepened capacity to lead and affect change.
Executive coaching is most effective for executives who have a desire to change and believe it is possible, are open to feedback, and have a bias towards action.
During key moments in the life of an organization, Gelatt Partners works with executives to address the challenges of leading change, redefine their roles so that they are best aligned with the organization’s evolving needs, broaden their perspectives about vision and strategy, strengthen their ability to communicate about change, and enhance their skill to build the organization’s will to change. Data may be gathered in the form of self assessment or 360-degree assessments to inform leadership development priorities and ensure that coaching aligns with the organization’s needs.
Whether it’s a new leader joining an organization, a leader being promoted to an executive position or a first-time CEO, intentional leadership onboarding has a significant impact on a smooth entry into the role. Gelatt Partners coaches new executives on developing and implementing a learning strategy regarding the organization’s situation and culture, assessing team capabilities and style, developing communications with internal and external stakeholders, building credibility and momentum in the new role, and accelerating leadership and organizational effectiveness and impact.
At various times in executives' careers they may find themselves at a crossroads regarding their best work and how they want their future leadership roles to unfold, whether internally or externally. Gelatt Partners coaches leaders regarding their short and long-term career plans and how to effectively define, communicate and manage leadership transition.
