Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is the ultimate tailored approach to achieving your goals as a leader. One-to-one leadership coaching with world-class Performance Coaches from the pioneers of coaching.

A fun, motivational and totally unique style of fast-track leadership development that has delivered far more than I thought possible. Through the coaching, I was offered a Directorship after 6 months. If I had known the impact it had, I would have paid for it myself and done it ages ago!
Paul Clements, Commercial Director, Enva Environmental Services

The experience has been enlightening and very rewarding. All other coaching experiences I have had focused purely on the business objectives and the tasks. This coaching experience was also an inward journey. In my position it’s very rare to receive direct inward-looking feedback – this has been so helpful. After the experience of being very open and honest with my coach, I’m much more calm, more focussed on task on hand and much less focussed on professional/personal gain.

Who is executive coaching for?

Leaders in any industry, from C-Suite executives to team leaders and high potentials, can benefit from the fast-track development provided by individual coaching. Our executive coaching is meaningful and impactful to both the leader being coached and to their organization.

We are experts at providing global executive coaching programmes for large organizations, supporting a specific population or strategy. With a global pool of world-class coaches, we provide transformational coaching to leaders in multiple languages and locations, keeping their engagements aligned and on track with our programme methodology.

Our Performance Coaches also work direct with senior individuals and with teams.

When to use executive coaching?

Coaching can be especially impactful for leaders in certain situations:

  • preparing for future role or career changes
  • managing stress, change, conflict or crisis
  • taking on a new or different role
  • accelerating personal development
  • providing an objective and independent sounding board for senior leaders
  • rewarding and retaining key staff

“Performance Consultants ‘get to the heart of the leader’ they are working with. They raise their self-awareness and engender responsibility in them to make a sustainable positive difference in their own lives and the lives of those they work with.”
Matthew Chipper, Organizational Development Manager, easyJet

How does executive coaching work?

We deliver senior executive coaching sessions in person, virtually or a mixture of both formats. We aim to ensure that each coachee is matched with a coach they are comfortable with and who is aligned with their values.

In our best practice executive coaching process, each coachee is taken through an evaluation process to set benchmarks prior to coaching and a final evaluation session to provide details on development and return on investment.

leadership coaching process

For large organizational coaching programmes, regular update reports on coaching progress and status are provided including trends, progress and recommendations, while respecting the confidentiality of the coaching. Our systems keep engagements aligned and on track.

Performance Consultants specializes in evaluating the impact of coaching engagements and estimating the return on investment (ROI). We use our in-house coaching evaluation tool, Coaching for Performance ROI, to measure the baseline at the outset of the coaching relationship and the growth and development that has occurred across the coaching sessions. Depending on the position of the coachee within the organization, it is possible to trace the impact to the bottom line – see our easyJet Case Study for example. Please note that the confidentiality of the coaching is not compromised through this method.

After the coaching, my networks are stronger and I find it easier to influence decisions. More things are happening the way I want, without me having to fight. We make better decisions and will have fewer problems to fix in the next few years. As an organization, the results and outcomes of our decisions are much better.

“We brought Performance Consultants International in to Mubadala to help us launch and deliver an executive coaching programme to the top tiers of our organization. We maintained constant contact throughout the set-up phase. We had a true partnership with Performance Consultants who helped us every step of the way, from concept to launch to implementation and ongoing tracking. The launch event wildly exceeded expectations and the ongoing support I needed was always there. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them for an executive coaching framework in any ambitious organization.”
