We like to use analogies in our work and to express how unique coaching is for those who experience it, how much it helps in a very concrete manner to move forward and reach one’s goals as an individual, a team or an organization.
Have you ever seen a tree shrinking ?
The nature is meant to grow, bloom, surpass itself. So are human beings! And sometimes, as plants, they need a good gardener, not to grow them by force of course. It is totally useless to pull at a blade of grass to grow it faster!
But to bring some compost to the ground, clean weeds, pour water on the good seeds or allow each branch to breathe well, grow and express its full potential.
This is the beauty and the purpose of Coaching: provide the support and guidance needed to Grow, move forward and surpass oneself thanks to a limited, punctual and professional support.
In a punctual and tailored way, we guide you to build a vision, discover and deploy your inner motivation and potential, elaborate winning strategies to achieve your personal, strategic and operational goals, enhance your global performance.
What does a Coach-Executives Coach do?
You need someone external – your Coach, a trained professional and facilitator – to see you and guide you towards your real you.
Our role is to provide you with structure, foundation and support so that you self-generate the positive changes and reach the results you want.
We develop a tailor made process that enables you to gain clarity about who you are, where do you want to go and who do you want to be.
We create a safe environment, a fully impartial and confidential relationship in which you will see yourself more clearly.
We help you to clarify your ideas, set goals, mobilize strengths and resources, break your own barriers, identify gaps between where you are standing and where do you want to go, between who you are now and who do you want to become.
We guide you in developing a solid strategy and action to plan to reach your goals.
At Coach-Executives we guide the construction of the structure, accountability and support you need to ensure sustainable commitment and results.
Coaching is not Consulting, Mentoring or Therapy
We are not consultants
The Coach works on the awareness and the development of your inner motivation, qualities, competencies, resources, whereas the Consultant/Trainer aims at downloading information, bringing new knowledge, selling expertise, bringing solutions to fill a gap or perfect a knowledge.
We are not therapists
We do not dig in past, diagnose, heal or have a problem focused approach. We do not do into “Why that does not go”, but “How to make things better and move on”. The process of coaching favors awareness of what is conscious and accessible to change.
We are not mentors
The mentor typically is an expert in a field, industry or in a company who acts as an advisor, a guide. The mentor aims at downloading information, correcting, showing solutions, protecting, teaching. It is more of a one way, training-driven relationship.
