The objective of a coaching intervention is to help the executive to take full advantage of his/her qualities and overcome pitfalls that may hinder his/her effectiveness, in the pursuit of challenging and meaningful objectives.
Coaching is action-oriented in that it helps the executive define and achieve concrete objectives. The process builds upon the executive’s successes and helps reach higher levels of performance and fulfillment.
The coaching process invites the executive to act upon his/her self-awareness about, in particular, leadership style, interpersonal behaviors, preferences and motivators.
The program spans over a period to be agreed upon (typically six months or one year) and implies a significant commitment from the executive.
The sessions are scheduled by the executive and the executive coach at mutually convenient times, usually face-to-face (with a typical duration of two/three hours each), and possibly over teleconference (e.g., Skype) if appropriate.
Moreover, sessions can also be organized (typically at the onset, mid-term and at the end) take place with the executive’s manager, with the HR referent, the executive and the coach. These meetings help ensure that we can all be aligned on some of the program objectives (i.e., those connected to making a positive difference at the executive’s company) and all parties work in concert to support the executive’s leadership development effort through regular feedback exchanges.
Each intervention includes:
- reviewing the company’s background information,
- providing an in depth assessment using a range of psychometric instruments (as appropriate), as well as
- design and preparation time.
The executive coach is flexible and as much as possible, available when urgent coaching is solicited: for example, to bounce back ideas or seek guidance before an important meeting or presentation.
Strict ethics are obviously applicable. The sessions are confidential. Rosinski & Company will not divulge the content of the sessions, nor release personal information/data about the executive coach unless given explicit authorization by the executive. This allows creating a safe environment where candid exchanges and authentic exploration can take place, which leads to genuine commitment and resolute actions, resulting in greater impact.
