For Executives and Leaders

 

Leadership coaching supports clients in bringing out their strengths as a leader, overcoming challenges, and moving to the next level. During coaching, clients create insights, build on strengths, and move into action.

Is Coaching Right for You?

Purposeful coaching conversations lead to greater clarity about your goals, strengths, challenges, and next steps. Coaching may be right for you if you are ready to step back and objectively assess yourself and the results you are achieving. This involves looking at yourself in new ways, being willing to question your assumptions, set goals, and challenge yourself, with the support of your coach.

 Coaching may be right for you if you are ready to:

  • Prepare for big challenges and role changes

  • Move confidently from operational to strategic leadership

  • Lead with presence and authenticity

  • Clarify your goals and move into action to accomplish them

  • Make a successful transition

  • Build and maintain better relationships

  • Set clear priorities for better work-life balance

  • Move from a technical role to a broader leadership position

  • Overcome obstacles or perceptions that may be holding you back

Coaching provides you with an opportunity to pause and reflect, thinking deeply about your unique situation.  Research demonstrates that coaching is one of the most effective methods to accelerate your development as a leader.  

How We Work

Conron Coaching’s coaching approach is focused on achieving the client’s desired outcomes, while cultivating his or her unique leadership style.  Each engagement is highly customized to the individual, not “one size fits all.”  We use a four-phase coaching model.

  1. Envision the future. What do you wish to create that is different from the current reality? In this phase, you focus on reflection, self-awareness and exploring different perspectives. Self-assessments and feedback from others are considered. 

  2. Build motivation and resilience (ability to use new habits under pressure). In this phase, you tap into innate motivators, hone your focus, build your resilience, and experiment with different approaches.

  3. Plan. In this phase, you identify clear goals and create an action plan.

  4. Achieve.  In this phase, you practice new approaches and debrief outcomes with your coach. When setbacks occur, they are discussed and progress is regained. The focus is on keeping strong momentum as you move into higher levels of accomplishment on your goals.

A Typical Coaching Engagement

Each coaching engagement is customized to the client's needs. A typical engagement includes a series of 8-12 coaching sessions, approximately two per month. Coaching may take place in person, by telephone, video, or a combination of the three. The first session is usually a two–hour, in-person meeting to clarify the objectives for the engagement and gain a thorough understanding of the client's challenges and goals. An interview-based 360 process may be used, or other assessments.  A mid-point check-in and close-out meeting are used to stay on track with goals.  Email and phone support is available between scheduled meetings, as needed.
