Your executive coach is the one person with whom you can confidentially discuss professional challenges and concerns, brainstorm solutions and celebrate the triumphs within your professional career. In the process, you will have available to you the guidance and coaching you need to make the skillful executive decisions that serve you and your organization. By participating in this process, you will attain your goals by strengthening your competency to lead with authentic and conscious action. Not surprisingly, your personal life and family time will also improve.
As your executive coach, Martha’s primary concern will be to help you develop excellence in your world of influence. As your dedicated partner and mentor, she will assist you to find a new and more empowering way to look at things. Engage in a brief conversation with her and you will suddenly find her describing certain traits of yours that you would think would take hours to discern. She is clearly a quick and intuitive study. Combining these skills and a unique ability to coach people to reconnect with an internal natural wisdom that automatically drives them to achieve, major positive change in their on-the-job performance occurs.
Is Everyone Ready for Executive Coaching with Martha?
No. Martha will only work with those individuals who choose to be coached and who declare and demonstrate their commitment to raise the bar on their own performance. It is critical that the individual is personally willing to discover new ways to be effective and successful.
Who Has an Executive Coach?
Anyone who wants to be their best. The most successful and powerful leaders, athletes and performers have personal coaches. They don’t see it as “I have to ask for advice.” They see it as “I am going to be my best at this thing.” They are willing to do whatever it takes to make the vast amounts of money, get re-elected, win at Wimbledon, etc. This kind of commitment drives them to say, “I want a coach right now!”
Martha’s Coaching Methodology
Executives are complicated people with demanding careers. They need sophisticated methods to achieve change. After 28 years of working with thousands of people, Martha has developed many innovative techniques that have produced significant and enduring shifts in an executive’s ability to manage people, and organize time for a balanced life while achieving greater results. Martha’s approach is based on a combination of feedback: 1) by using powerful 3600 instruments and other assessment tools, 2) the use of an encouraging coaching style that is focused on understanding the executive’s framework of thinking and values that influence his/her decision making and 3) the application of a series of learning tasks designed to create breakthrough in the executive’s competence and capability.
In the old style of corporate America, managers managed, directors directed, presidents presided and hierarchical relationship reigned. Today, however, companies are looking for new ways of interacting in the corporate arena. The key now is empowerment. Develop your people, help them identify their growth and development areas and then coach them through existing challenges so they are more self-sustaining, independent, capable, confident employees. In the executive coaching process, Martha will not only coach the executive, but he/she will be coached on how to coach others. Everyone wins.
