The VIP coaching conversations by All about Talent offer senior managers a sounding board, tranquility and space to test ideas and be inspired to develop and refine new ideas. If desired also: a mirror, support and neutral feedback on own leadership behaviour.
Many organisations and companies go through continuous transition processes which demand a lot from employees and managers. Line- and in particular HR directors, have an important role to play here. Naturally they aim to achieve the company targets, to support their colleagues and to guide their employees. To inspire them, enable them to grow in their profession, have them cooperate successfully etc. Furthermore that often also involves ‘building mutual confidence and trust’, whereas they are part in the larger whole and find themselves in the midst of the force fields. By no means an easy task.
Although the majority of managers have their internal network contacts well organized, many feel an increasing need to discuss their question marks, reluctances or ‘just – the state of affairs’ with a neutral external professional. For ‘up-and-coming’ managers internal mentors are available in most cases. The more senior your role as lead manager, director or VP, the more difficult and vulnerable it gets to put your questions, doubts and uncertainties on the table.
In my practice I notice that leaders feel a need to regularly:
Your priorities, cases and actual needs will be the departing point of our working sessions. So you decide on the agenda; I will be your sparring partner challenging and supporting you with appreciative inquiry, food for thought and 'building blocks’ which support your ‘themes’. Conversations/working sessions of 1.5 up to 2 hours usually work best to benefit the most from your precious time.
You decide how you want to start and which frequency suits you best. Some want a firm start, meeting with a monthly frequency and later on every five or six weeks. Others prefer meeting every six weeks from the start.
All about Talent offers blended coaching trajectories of five, six and seven Talent VIP sessions, with a maximum lead time of resp. six, seven or eight months. Given that planning is a challenge for senior management agenda’s, our cancellation conditions are modest.
If you feel working with me will get you ahead, get in touch to further discuss your specific goals and needs and get information about further conditions.
