What We Did
The initial sessions of this executive coaching programme focused on exploring the cause of the executive’s presenting issue, both from the perspective of his leadership style, the organisational culture he had entered and the dynamics of the team he was now leading.
Referencing Deep C’s model for building high-performing teams, subsequent sessions identified the relevant behaviours, tasks and conversations that the executive needed to undertake to encourage greater flexibility and a willingness to experiment within his team.
Behavioural assignments were set up between sessions and systematically reviewed in terms of outcomes and overall impact. The executive coach was periodically able to gather qualitative feedback within the business on the impact of the changes that the executive implemented; data which was used to further inform the ongoing coaching process over the six-month period.
