What is 'Desired Self' focused Coaching
The ‘Desired Self’ focused Coaching program aims to develop the glide-path towards your Desired Self, with you and your immediate ecosystem at its core. Your definition of the leader you aspire to be and your commitment towards the same will be the foundation of our coaching relationship.
While the coaching process is custom designed for each client’s unique situation, it is also inspired by Stakeholder Centered Coaching approach championed by Dr. Marshall Goldsmith – the most successful Executive Coach and the foremost Management Thinker in the world.
How does it work?
To be a successful early adopter of pioneering business trends in their industry, we coach our clients to be exceptional at :
- proactively understanding the pulse of evolving customer expectations
- seizing opportunities from emerging technologies to add significant value
- having the right expectations on the staff members to lead the industry
- setting a compelling and engaging vision for organizational alignment.
We will do that through a five-stage approach:
- deep dive assessment of the current status through personal interviews with stakeholders
- defining a Desired Self across all facets of leadership, required to thrive in a rapidly evolving technology-centric business ecosystem
- develop an integrated action plan covering stakeholder feedforward and the latest leadership research, to reach the defined goals in the prioritized areas
- delivering to the plan over a 9-18 month period with active coaching and regular communication with the stakeholders
- personalizing a mindset of growth spiral by the end of the coaching process, so that you are able to coach yourself for continuous growth.
What is the role of the coach and the coached?
The role of the coach here is to share proven tools, strategies, processes, and habits that can help you progress towards your desired self. You will choose the approaches that resonate the most with you and start adopting these in your routines with regular tracking. The coach will be helping you through the journey with course corrections, non-judgemental feedback, accountability checks and cheering for your success.
At the core of this approach is your full buy-in into the process and commitment to make the full journey. Towards this, the first two stages will be completed for free as a groundwork to assess the mutual fit for a longer term coaching partnership.
