Executive Coaching

What got you here won’t get you there

Most successful executives today have a good intellectual understanding of the various management tools required to lead an organization successfully. But experience has shown that the same behaviors that contribute to initial career success often do not guarantee future leadership success

The ™BIGFISH coaching method has been influenced by ™Marshall Goldsmith’s Stakeholder Centered Coaching approach, in line with which we are working with stakeholders to help highly successful people make a positive long-term change in their (leadership) behaviour using a methodology that is highly effective and time efficient

 

Solving management issues
When personal / leadership issues are standing in the way of efficiency: we touch on the executives individual career and even personal life issues but the outcome is always linked back to the overarching goal of the sponsoring organization

Preparing for transition
Enhance maximum performance: prepare your high-potential mid level manager for transition to C-level or anticipate for possible future positions

Objective external soundboard
Coaching at the highest level: by challenging, reflecting or maybe in saying just those things you don’t want to hear or nobody else dares saying

Individual Coaching

During the Coaching we touch on the Executive’s individual career and even personal life issues but the outcome is always linked back to the overarching goal of the sponsoring Organization.
