An example of my executive coaching experience was with a CEO who wanted to improve leadership and interpersonal skills with her staff. After administering a series of assessments, feedback was provided and specific goals set to increase communication, morale and team work. Over a nine month period we had frequent coaching sessions both in person and via telephone as well as some monthly meetings with the staff. Our focus was evaluating her commitment to the business, creating her vision for the future both short and long term, removing internal and external obstacles, creating life balance and developing options and action plans to move forward. The results included an increase in employee morale, greater team work in producing sales, retention of key employees, and increased career and life satisfaction for her and her staff.
