Results Based Coaching
Business coaching is about assessing your current situation to confirm alignment or dissonance and guiding you suitably in achieving your leadership goals.
I work with physicians, executives, directors, managers and individual contributors in healthcare and across other industries. Regardless of whether you are an early careerist, in mid-career, or contemplating life after retirement, we’ll work together so you realize your highest aspirations.
I develop a complete picture of your current reality by having an in-depth conversation with you and then soliciting feedback from key stakeholders in your life. You and I then use the alignment or dissonance revealed through the process to create a metrics-based action plan, tailored to your unique leadership development needs.
It is important to note that some of the best companies and leaders in the world rely on business coaching to achieve optimal performance.
1-1 Coaching Engagements
How It Works
We will have a conversation to determine what brings you to coaching, if you have clarity or need help in identifying your aspirational goals. Just as importantly, we will see if we have a mutual connection.
Through our candid 1-1 conversations, stakeholders’ interviews and more, we will co-create an outline of your current reality and also assess your commitment to change. This process will enable you to integrate these learnings and define your aspirational goals and needed behavior changes with clear success metrics.
We will leverage the stakeholder feedback as well as your self-assessment to identify your strengths and the obstacles in your way to realizing your vision. Our focus here will be on these two areas:
You will work on the coaching goals with my support and solicit periodic feedback on progress from key stakeholders. This process may lead you to recalibrate your goals and refine direction.
We will assess the overall effectiveness of coaching, develop a long-range plan, and establish on-going support for your continued growth.
Coaching On Demand
All of us can benefit from an objective perspective when faced with a quandary, whether professional or personal. This option offers focused coaching session(s) to address your specific concern.
How It Works
We share your issue, the urgency & your desired outcome. We coordinate schedules, etc.
We discuss the issue in detail, your goals for the session, identify viable options, and end with concrete next steps you are willing to take.
We discuss how you felt about the steps you took to address the issue and your learnings for the future.
In today’s complex world, transformational leadership requires the leader to engage the commitment of all major stakeholders, especially employees, to radical change. This means winning the hearts and minds of team members. Not an easy task, by any stretch.
How It Works
We start with collaborative sessions that promote vulnerability and trust. This allows teams to highlight on the job opportunities while keeping an eye on the long-term.
We will discuss the current reality of your team in terms of strengths and opportunities and the alignment with the organizational imperatives.
Through individual and collective conversations with the team members we identify their perceptions of team effectiveness compared to stakeholder feedback. This defines the scope of our work.
We will engage the team to confirm that everyone is clear on and supports the purpose, goals and deliverables. Then through interactive and collaborative dialogue we will ensure that the team is fostering a culture of openness, learning and hi-performance.
We will debrief about the team’s progress both during and after our work together to ensure resilience and forward momentum.
Why It Works
More than anything, I believe Business Coaching is about a genuine connection between me as the coach and you as my client. This allows us to build trust which enables us to have authentic conversations about your leadership aspirations, your strengths as well as your current obstacles and blind spots.
Before we proceed, I ask you about your level of commitment to making the necessary changes to achieve your goals, if you are not fully dedicated to making the changes, we respectfully part ways. However, if you are willing to put forth the effort & get out of your comfort zone, we create a customized leadership development plan for you. I both inspire and respectfully challenge you when you falter, giving you in the moment feedback as you make progress, eventually becoming the leader you chose to be on our results-based journey.
Coaching calls are confidential telephone conversations to help you think through the best solutions to your personal, professional, or leadership challenges so that you know with confidence what to do next.
We will structure our session as follows:
