EXECUTIVE COACHING

Leading a business and a team can sometimes feel like a lonely place, especially as you’ve so much to do. Decisions to make, problems to solve, people to see…the list is endless. There may even be days when you find yourself wondering whether you’re going about things in the right way, or if things could be a bit easier.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Just because you’re the Leader, doesn’t mean that you don’t need someone on your side to give you the support, guidance and coaching that you really do need.

Let me ask you a question…can you relate to any of this?

  • You’d like to be more pro-active and strategic, but don’t currently have the head-space?
  • You’d describe yourself as: juggling too many balls; spinning plates; treading water or running on a hamster wheel?
  • You’d like to be more effective as a leader, and get results from yourself and your team
  • You’d like to know how to be more effective during the day so you get more done.
  • You feel that you spend your days making decisions, and solving problems that your team should be able to do?
  • You’d really like some more time to spend with your family or doing things you enjoy.
  • You’d like to role model positive behaviours and not someone who works long hours consistently.
  • You’d love to know an easier way to influence and grow your team so they can be more self sufficient?

HOW WE WORK TOGETHER

Although I call myself an Executive Coach, what I really offer is a healthy fusion of coaching, mentoring, and training all rolled into one. In conventional executive coaching the answers would all come from you, which is fantastic. However, what I’ve noticed over the years is that sometimes ‘you just don’t know what you don’t know’, and rather than wait until you do, this is where I jump in to give you some support, guidance and development along the way. This way you leave every session with clear actions and having made a real leap in the right direction.

I’ve worked with literally hundreds of leaders, from Business Owners to Managers, to help them get the most from their teams and themselves. As a result we tackle issues that you’ve probably just gotten used to putting up with. Things like…working long hours, not communicating consistently, not getting the results you need from your teams; having a list to do as long as your arm, and not being as effective as you can be.  I can show you an easier and quicker way resulting in quite a lot of A-HA moments as you discover the answer is a lot simpler than you thought. Let me help you with a tailor-made executive coaching service.

“Barbara is incredibly down-to-earth and easy to relate to; which makes for more than just a pleasant experience with her …

Barbara is skilled in creating a space for development to evolve in a way that feels almost like osmosis, and I always come away from our discussions enlightened and energised to take the next step.

Whether you are manager, senior leader or CEO you need Barbara on your team!”

Let me give you the details…

How long is each coaching session?
Sessions are 60 minutes long and tend to take place once a month. This is so you’ve enough time to implement the actions we discussed.
How many coaching sessions do I get?
Initially, the we start with a block booking of 6 executive coaching sessions spread over 6 months. However, once those are up if you decide to keep going that’s fine too.
Where are they held?
If you’re based in the West Yorkshire area in the UK then we can arrange a face to face meeting, if not, they’ll take place over Skype.
How do I get the most out of each coaching session?
Before we start working together we’ll discuss what success looks like for you. What is it that you want to do differently, and where do you want to improve. We’ll then use that as our ‘North Star’ throughout the executive coaching programme. It’s also helpful if you have a think about what you want to discuss before each session, and in between times the people who really see results are the ones who take action.
What do we discuss?
I’m all about helping you get the very best out of your team and yourself, and be a confident and effective leader so there are lots of things that we can discuss. Just to give you an idea of some of the areas in my tool box:  Looking at your productivity, and how you manage your day; Replacing any bad habits with some that are much more beneficial. Exploring exactly how you’re leading your team; building in core strategies that will really make a difference to you and your team, improving the way you communicate so that you’re always giving your team what they need; and supporting you to build the culture you want resulting in habits and skills that really work for you, your team and the growth of your business….the list really is endless.
What are the benefits of executive coaching?
Executive Coaching is a great way to get the focused attention you need without the distraction of other people on a programme, or going through a set agenda, and you can really tailor each session to suit exactly what you need at that time. As with anything the more you put in, the more you’ll get out…so it’s a good idea to always practice what we talk about in between meetings so that you’re moving towards your desired end goal and you start to see the results you want.
Barbara has worked with the senior leadership team here at the Bone Cancer Research Trust for the last 6 months. She has provided us with flexible and tailored coaching to meet our needs as a new leadership team working through a time of change. Her sessions, which have been both 1-2-1 and as a group, have been invaluable – we have become a more efficient and effective team as a result, with what will hopefully be a long-lasting impact.” Liz Eatock
