Here are some examples of similar case histories you may find helpful:
1) Talented, high potential professional
The challenge for intelligent, successful, technically strong and creative thinkers, is that it is all too easy as an emerging leader to go through a challenging phase. This frequently occurs when they are identified as high flyers and given developmental moves, which can put them into new contexts with relatively little subject knowledge.
They often need to rapidly learn new approaches, win the respect of new groups and significantly improve their leadership skills.
At the same time, they may become unclear about career direction and especially how to manage work/life balance.
A period of coaching resulted in
- an increase in self-awareness which lead to greater sensitivity in their working relationships
- a more collaborative approach to leading teams
- learning how to better manage senior stakeholder interactions
- achieving significant business results
- gaining the desired career moves as well as obtaining a significant increase in salary.
2) Director of medium-sized business
Two recent clients faced very similar situations. The challenges that they faced were:
- rapid growth opportunities
- young, enthusiastic but inexperienced teams
- a need to re-think and clarify the business vision and strategy
- inadequate processes for managing multiple projects
After a period of time, following the coaching process, both of them
- led their organisations to new levels of profitability
- achieved improved focus and better management of time
- learned to better understand the demands of leading change and introduced new ways to manage performance, enhance engagement and maintain high motivation.
