Executive Coaching


What is coaching?


Coaching challenges the client to be conscious of his/her behaviours. It is a very effective method of changing behaviours and accomplishing specific goals. It focuses on specific development needs or on enhancing individual skills. Through goal setting & action planning, the client experiences fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities, enhances his/her decision-making skills, performs greater interpersonal effectiveness, and increases his/her confidence in carrying out their work roles. As the client engages with new learning, we ask him/her to listen to their emotions and look at their attitudes, beliefs and values. The client can expect to see appreciable results in the areas of productivity and personal satisfaction.
