Working With a Executive/Life Coach For Men

 

 

 

WHAT IS EXECUTIVE/LIFE COACHING FOR MEN LIKE? blue light bulb

Executive/life coaching focuses on finding answers and solutions to the challenges men face and the goals men have in their career and personal lives. Coaching is a judgment and assumption free, confidential interaction for real world business and life issues in our modern day society; overwhelming or persistent, heavy or light, complicated or simple, old or new! Whether you're seeking general or specific changes on large or small scale, for the short term or long term, quickly or gradually, coaching helps you achieve the success, satisfaction and happiness you want in your career and your personal life!

Every executive/life coaching relationship is a flexible and custom interaction that will be tailored to fit your work schedule and personal life. Coaching typically takes place over a series of 1/2 hour to 1 hour sessions that are scheduled either twice, three times or four times a month depending on your preference and availability. Coaching sessions can take place at an office, your place of work or via telephone from either the convenience of your office or the comfort of your home. 

 

 

 

WHERE BUSINESS/LIFE COACHING STARTS a man with his armsraised

Executive/life coaching is all about reaching success in your career and in your personal life, not someone else's. Hence, coaching starts with a deeper discovery of who you are so you can better reach that success. Understanding and being aware of your needs, strengths, values and personality will help us set the right goals to reach your vision of the future! It will also help enable us to find the best answers and solutions for the challenges you are facing as a unique individual in the unique situations you are a part of!

 

 

the life path of manTHE EXECUTIVE/LIFE COACHING PROCESS 

Coaching starts with a program that involves applying key proven tools and success strategies! These tools include StrengthsFinder 2.0, DISC Personality & Behavioural Assessment, Peak Experience Value Mining Exercise and more.

The next key is to identify the unique issues and challenges in your business and personal life so that the right strategies and solutions can be applied to them. Thus one of the first steps in coaching is to fully explore your challenges more deeply in order to accurately identify the real issue. It is important to do this because sometimes an obstacle is actually something different from what it initially seems. 

 

 

DEEPENING YOUR LEARNINGbusinessman with options

In executive/life coaching we are always in pursuit of knowledge because this is what gives you the power to make successful changes and reach your full potential! This will be done in part through proven tools such as StrengthsFinder 2.0, DISC Personality & Behavioural Assessment and the Peak Experience Value Mining Exercise. However it will also be done by tackling false beliefs, limiting beliefs, fears and innacurate perspectives related to your challenges and goals. These issues act like a cracked foundation effecting everything built on top of them, hence they must be dealt with to ultimately reach success!

MAKING CHOICES AND TAKING ACTION

Information is useless if you don't do anything with it! As your coach, I will make specific and tailored requests for action that will be focused on overcoming your and your department, divisions or teams challenges as well as reaching your and your department, division and team goals. I will also help you to gain insights, realizations and learn from these actions by reflecting on them with you. In that sense there is a continual relationship between learning and action as well as action and learning! 

 

ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY

Accountability is critical to successful change orientated action and for that reason it is an integral part of the coaching relationship. Of course it is also vital that these changes be sustainable and lasting. Thus as a coach part of my job is to train you and leave you with techniques and tools you can continue to  implement in your self and your department, division and team!

 

 

THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN COACHING key to success

More than anything executive/life coaching depends on self realization through co-active techniques. Co-active coaching means both the coach and the client are actively engaged and involved in the coaching process. An effective executive/life coach knows that their clients are strong, resourceful, creative and smart, therefore it is important that the coach fully unleash and utilize this potential in the coaching to make it much more powerful than it otherwise would be. Perhaps you've heard the saying, 2 minds are better than 1, well this is particularly true in coaching!

Self realization is also critical. Self realization in it's most basic sense means that a client truly understands and believes in the answer and solution coaching brings them to as opposed to simply trusting what a coach may say or suggest. In other words, the coach guides, focuses, challenges and asks purposeful and powerful questions instead of just telling the client what to do and when to do it. Ultimately, you should never have to reside yourself to merely trusting that what a coach says is right. It should always make sense to you. That is when you know it is right!
