Executive coaching provides a uniquely challenging but supportive working partnership that benefits individuals and organizations by improving performance through developing skills, confidence and focus.

At IMCL, we are strategically positioned to coach leaders, directors and high potential senior executives in a wide variety of sectors.

Our coaches create robust, strong and confidence-building working partnerships which are underpinned by sound coaching principles and well validated techniques.

Once a relationship based on trust and rapport is established, the IMCL coach challenges thinking and assumptions to support the individual in their goal setting. Key elements of the coaching include:

  • A short introductory meeting – to understand the individual’s context and goals. The coaching process and confidentiality are discussed and this meeting provides an essential ‘chemistry check’ – to ensure a strong relationship will develop.
  • Defining the individual’s coaching objectives – encompassing both short term goals and longer term aspirations. Where appropriate the individual’s manager will be included in a three way meeting at the outset and on completion of coaching.
  • Flexible structure – A format determined by the client’s agenda and needs, but often 5-7 sessions lasting two hours spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
  • Bespoke interventions – to raise awareness, reflect on strengths and challenges, and focus action. Coaches draw upon an extensive range of psychological tools and methodologies to ensure the desired outcomes are achieved (including Myers Briggs, stakeholder feedback, and positive psychology).
  • Constant evaluation – to produce realistic and effective strategies for action, ensuring sustained change long after their coaching has finished.
  • Ongoing support – Added value of phone and email support that an individual can tap into as required.
