Executive Coaching: Finding & Closing the Skills Gaps for Leaders

Written by: Jennifer Jimbere | Productivity & Profitability Coach for Business Leaders

How is your professional development plan looking for 2022?

If your organization is ready to see improvements in leadership effectiveness, I am happy to help!

There are four commonly used tools for improving human performance: Coaching, Consulting, Training and Therapy. Most workplaces do not offer therapy, however, many more are starting to offer coaching, consulting and training and there are important differences between them.

Here are six benefits of many to executive leadership coaching;

  1. Leading change to create high performing, results-driven organizations.
  2. Personal and organizational transformation.
  3. Developing future leaders for the organization.
  4. Learning how to be coaches to their employees.
  5. Creating organizational cultures that value continuous improvement.
  6. Vulnerability, showing that on-one is done learning and growing.

As your coach, I can give you an honest assessment of your skills and where you can improve as a leader. As a certified Extended DiSC trainer, I can share a detailed assessment of your behaviour styles and discuss your strengths and opportunities with you.

As a trained Executive Coach, I can see things that you may not be able to, sometimes it is just best to talk through ideas with someone who is detached from your program to provide fresh insight and a unique perspective to your ideas. Your organization could benefit to partner and find out what skills gaps are can be closed for your leaders to be more effective.

I can also provide a safe and secure outlet for leaders to vent and share their struggles.

Everyone gets frustrated at times in the office, but you need to be extremely careful where and when you chose to vent. By having a space that is judgement free, you won’t jeopardize your current position, lost organizational support, and develop an unfavourable image at the office. We are all moving at too fast a pace these days and there will always be things that frustrate you, including the juggling act you perform each and every day. Together, we can create a plan and discover the possibilities that inspire you to flourish in your current role and prepare you for your next opportunity.

Are you looking to find a better way to reduce stress, increase effectiveness, and sill have a great life? As a coach, I have worked with hundreds of other professionals, potentially facing the same challenges as you. As your coach & consultant, I can use previous experience to make targeted recommendations and provide suggestions on how to best improve a suitable work-life integration.

Leadership is taxing and you take on a lot of different stresses, by having someone to help process the information, you can have more clarity of thought and make an informed plan of action.

Ideally, to improve human performance within an organization every situation warrants a proper review by a professional and may require a combination of tools. I am proud to have a breadth and depth of tools to assist with vast experience in coaching, consulting and training I know when to pull which lever to assist. It is important to know when to hire a consultant ( a subject matter expert who knows what should be done based on a series of assessments), a trainer ( someone who focuses on skill and knowledge transfer – the how), and a therapist (someone who supports resolution of emotions, intrapersonal, and interpersonal issues – the why), it is equally important to know the when and why for using a coach.

Looking for One-on-One Coaching Help?

Are you tired of going it alone and could use some help when it comes to building your skills?

We want to ensure that by partnering together you become more self-aware, take action and focus on the right tasks that will have you standing out as an effective executive. I have a proven model for sharing feedback along with many other tools and strategies that I will use to support your efforts.

Coaching is never an expense. It’s one of the smartest investments any business will ever make when it comes to building a successful business. Gain access to improved self-awareness and become a more effective executive.
