“I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable. John Russell, Harley-Davidson Europe Ltd.”
Perceptual Reality provides high-impact, outcomes-based executive coaching and assessments which challenge and support you in improving your performance and achieving your organisation’s strategic goals.
The executive challenge
It can feel lonely at the top. As an executive you face challenges on a daily basis, from navigating your first days in a new role to driving transformational change. You have tough decisions to make, internal and external relationships to manage; the need to maximize business potential, embracing change and maximizing your impact as a leader are all in a day’s work.
Executive coaching enhances performance
Our executive coaching provides:
An opportunity to explore your perceptions and the reality of the situation
A confidential, safe and non-judgemental space where you can honestly and authentically explore where you are and where you need to be to achieve your goals
An opportunity to understand your professional impact
An impartial sounding board and strategic thinking partner
Someone with whom to discuss challenges and opportunities
The opportunity to acknowledge how personal motivations and desires impacts professional development
Other factors we consider include your personality, your role in the organisation and the situation that you find yourself in, moment-by-moment. Our role is to support you in developing and maintaining the skills, knowledge, attitude and habits required for sustainable performance.
A [not so] unique approach
To be effective, our executive coaching addresses a number of accepted principles:
It’s about change; often at a deep, personal or unconscious level (and you must want to change)
It is usually challenging and at times uncomfortable
Self-awareness and others-awareness is a critical component
Executives are often faced with difficult or challenging situations. In such cases your ability to handle people is critical
Authenticity is about who you are
Your executive coaching journey
We see executive coaching as a journey to success that aligns your development to strategic business objectives. It is both active and reflective, does not take place in a vacuum and is not a singular event.
The beginning is easy; you talk, we listen. Then, together we design the most appropriate and effective coaching program for your needs. That may include focusing on a number of areas such as:
Supporting you in your new role,
Supporting you with a project or transition
Developing your talent pipeline
Understanding your motivations, values, and personal biases
Identifying the management practices you need to develop
Providing relevant, insightful feedback to you from a variety of observers
Developing your ability to apply the SCARF (Status, Certainty, Autonomy, Relatedness, Fairness) model when communicating with others
Coaching in real-time; observing you in meetings or during one-to-one sessions to provide you with direct observations
Executive coaching is often evolutionary; it adapts to your changing needs as you grow and develop as an effective executive.
