||Need to sharpen your leadership abilities?
||Want to discover your unique competitive advantage?
||Need to create a strong leadership presence during times of change?
Your ability to lead in a courageous, effective, and dynamic manner has
a direct effect on your executive leadership team’s performance, your
manager’s productivity, your employee’s motivation, and your company’s
Executive coaching is one of the most effective tools available today to
help you enhance your leadership skills, build your leadership presence,
and increase your executive wisdom.
SOME OF THE PROVEN BENEFITS OF OUR EXECUTIVE
COACHING AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT INCLUDE:
BUILDING THE BUSINESS CASE: WHY YOU SHOULD DEVELOP YOUR PEOPLE
With the economic downturn, every company is seeking new ways to
increase revenues while decreasing costs. Some companies believe one of
the easiest ways to do this is to cut their leadership development or
management training budget. However, businesses interested in long-term
viability recognize that to be successful they must continually develop
their people, especially their leaders.
COACHING NEW EXECUTIVES
Would you like your new executives to progress more quickly and deliver
consistent results faster?
Many organizations find it takes an average of 9 to 12 months for a new
executive to become effective and reach their full potential. A full 40%
do not function to their full potential for the first year and research
has found a significant percentage of new executives leave their
position within the first 20 months because of their inability to adapt
and produce significant results.
Coaching can be particularly effective when key people are moved into
new roles or hired externally. It can help your new executive:
||increase the speed of integration into the leadership team
||cut their learning curve almost in half
||build early loyalty and longevity
||ensure any critical success factors are addressed early on
KEEPING KEY TALENT MOTIVATED AND PERFORMING AT THEIR PEAK
Are your rainmakers performing at their peak? Are you retaining your top
You probably know who your key people are—they are the ones who are
intelligent, motivated, ambitious, adaptable, and team players. The top
20% of your people bring in more sales, create more innovative ideas,
motivate their people to produce more, communicate more effectively, and
are either currently in a top leadership position or on the fast track.
However, key people require regular attention. One-on-one coaching of
key people is critical to the long-term ability of your organization to
attract and retain top talent.
Not developing your people creates two big problems:
||It leads to a “brain-drain” on your company. Top performers are always
looking for the extra edge training and development can give them. If
you refuse to provide it for them, they will find a company who will.
||You lose the competitive edge in business. The biggest competitive
advantage you currently have and will have in the future is neither the
product nor the service you offer—it is the people you have managing and
leading your company. By not developing their people, many companies are
failing to tap into their biggest source of new revenue producing ideas.
“If you look to lead,
invest at least 40% of your time managing yourself—your ethics,
character, principles, purpose, motivation and conduct.”
—CEO of VISA

IMPROVING CHANGE LEADERSHIP
Do your executives demonstrate capability in the critical change
leadership competence areas?
In today’s turbulent times the importance of solid change leadership
cannot be understated. Change is not going away—it is accelerating.
Companies are constantly restructuring, merging, downsizing and
|Three primary reasons why these techniques often fail to produce lasting
results is due to:
||decreases in morale
||employee productivity slips
||ineffective change leadership
Executive coaching can help your leadership team avoid the common
pitfalls that change and transition create and successfully navigate the
turbulent waters of organizational change and economic transition.
In spite of all their efforts fully 60% of restructures and mergers do
not result in a positive bottom-line improvement. Almost 70% of
organizations who downsize see an immediate decrease in productivity and
more than 50% fail to realize an improvement in profitability a full
advancement that I have seen in my own career and leadership
development is amazing. I highly recommend Stephen and Today's
Leadership Coaching for every executive serious about
improving employee performance.”

ASSISTING IN THE TRANSITION FROM TECHNICAL OR SALES
POSITIONS TO MANAGEMENT POSITIONS
|Do you have an individual moving from a technical or sales position into
a management position?
Many companies believe the best way to keep skilled technical or sales
people motivated and performing is to promote them into management.
However, these same top performers usually require additional training
and a different skill set to effectively move into these new positions.
Executive coaching can effectively provide the training and leadership
development necessary to significantly reduce the learning curve, keep
your top performers productive, and ultimately persuade them not to take
their skills to one of your competitors.
coaching, you helped me to quickly spot a real ‘deficiency’ in
my relational style. You helped me become aware of it and
develop techniques to express myself more efficiently. You
also tactfully informed me when I was slipping back into my
old habits. Your coaching helped me because it was a
personalized analysis and a tailor-made-solution that was
specific for my needs.”
MENTORING SENIOR EXECUTIVES
|Do you want someone who can give you objective, independent, and
completely confidential input?
It is lonely at the top. More than ever today’s executives and leaders
face challenges that require courage, inspiration and making tough
decisions. Our experienced Executive Coaches can provide you with
outside, confidential input and help you lead out of your developed
strengths with confidence.
“Working with CEO
Coach Tom Horne has helped me move several steps closer to
being the person I want to be!”
CREATING HIGH PERFORMING TEAMS
|Are your teams performing at their absolute peak?
Many of today’s top companies use teams at every level, often with less
than satisfactory results. A team’s productivity is influenced by many
things including: individual motivation, mutual respect, solid goal
setting, and continuous improvement.
Executive coaching increases a team’s productivity, helps them overcome
conflict, and discover how to use each member’s unique strength’s to
achieve maximum results.
“You make the big
difference in our company by creating an environment where
it is safe to share our professional experiences, our
feelings, disappointments, and discouragements. I want you
to be my coach!”
