“Coaching is unlocking people's potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.”
― John Whitmore
The IL Executive Coaching
The IL Executive Coaching journey begins with a short meeting involving the executive (high-potential, manager, director, vice president, senior executive, and C-level) and “sponsoring” executive/team if necessary to discuss the goals of the coaching experience, provide context and background, and discuss the proposed “roadmap” and coaching schedule.
360 Degree Interviews
I supplement these assessments with 360-degree interviews involving key stakeholders and constituents (board members, other C-Level executives, direct reports) as well as survey a larger population of employees using my Strategic-Tactical Leadership Index 360-Survey or the organization’s sponsored 360-Survey.
Built In Shadowing
I almost always build-in one day of shadowing, in which I observe the executive in action—on calls, in meetings, etc.
The Balance of The Day
The balance of the day then shifts to the executive and I getting to know each other both “in the office” and “out” over lunch and/or dinner. My objective over the course of the day and following day, if necessary, is for us to build a foundation and bond of trust and rapport. Ultimately, I will assess the strength and vibrancy of both their “inner-core” and “outer-core” capabilities utilizing my general observations as well as a combination of a structured “in-depth interview” and objective assessments, including my own executive maturity assessment.
Identify General Observations
I will then identify from my general observations, assessments, interviews, and shadow days, the executive’s leadership strengths and development needs.
Fully Day Debrief
Typically, we schedule a full-day to debrief and discuss the themes and results of the assessments.
Introduce the Executive
I then transition to introducing the executive to their Core Purpose and creating their Core Purpose Statement (CPS)
One of the most powerful methods for cultivating a leaders passion for the vision “of the essence” of the person they must become (even “bigger” than what they want to become), is having them create and live by a core purpose statement, philosophy, or creed.
