Executive Coaching and Team Building

Coaching Built for Your Company.

No investment offers greater ROI than a high-performing and high-trust executive team. You’re counting on them to lead, to manage, to execute flawlessly and to follow-through consistently. Their most vital role is setting the direction built on a clearly defined purpose true to your values and vision. Our executive coaching experts reinforce this role.

Yet even top teams can flounder at times, and it’s easy to understand. A myriad of factors create fissures threatening the team and undermining strategy. Politics seem unavoidable, communication breaks down, poor decisions get made, unresolved conflicts erode trust, and meetings suffer from unclear agendas and poor decision making processes.  

Executive Team Coaching

Executive coaching for teams begins with team building to engender the high-trust relationships vital to success. A common challenge is that the roles and real work of the executive team may be unclear or misunderstood.  We address that with creation of a shared picture of the most valuable role as well as agreements that promote authentic dialogue. We sharpen effective decision-making processes and provide practical tools and methodology to make meetings efficient, effective and productive. 

We also coach members to build trust-building behaviors – listening, mutual respect, tools to address conflict productively and understanding of different styles and strengths.  Trust is the foundation for everything you want- smart strategic decisions, strong commitment and follow-through, reliability and collaboration.
