Coaching for Chief Executives
The role of Chief Executive can be a lonely one. You are in a unique position surrounded by high expectations from everyone – the Board, shareholders, customers, staff, the city and the public.
As CEO you are relentlessly on stage and everything you say and do is magnified. You no longer have peers or others alongside you. You have a Board to manage, an executive team to lead and an organisation to direct.
Everyone has a view about what you should be doing or focusing on. Yet these views can be mired by personal agendas, politics and turf wars, or worse still are the ‘yes men’ who say what they think you want to hear, not what you really need to know.
Trusted advisor for long-term success
Georgina works with CEO’s on a retained relationship basis, unlike traditional executive coaching, which is often structured around a pre-agreed number of sessions. This means that she is your coach for the whole time that you need her and “on call” should she be required.
You work together as much or as little as needed, in person, by phone, email, Skype, Facetime or other virtual means. The measure of success is value added – in other words, what you are getting from Georgina’s coaching is greater than the cost.
The coaching focuses on resolution and resilience – making sense of the system you are in and developing the strength to face any challenge. Georgina’s relationship with you is founded on a deep sense of trust, developing and growing over time and she often works with CEOs for several years.
Georgina’s clients are very successful and self-reliant, so this is not about dependency. It is about having a trusted advisor who is not internal to the organisation and who has no agenda other than your success.
