Executive Coaching

Many of the most successful business executives in America embrace the idea of working with an executive coach.  Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Alphabet, Inc. (formerly Google) said the best advice he ever got was “to get a coach.”  Bill Gates opened a Ted Talk in 2013 by saying, “everyone needs a coach.”

What does an individual and an organization gain from working with an Executive Coach?  Some of the gains that have been sighted in studies are:

  • Developing the leadership skills of high-potential individuals
  • Improving the odds that newly promoted managers will be successful
  • Developing management and leadership skills among technical staff
  • Helping leaders resolve interpersonal conflicts among employees and/or co-workers

Executive Coaching is a targeted, customized method for leadership development. Frequently, it is a collaborative partnership among an upper level executive, his/her organization, and the executive coach. This approach implies that the coaching takes place within the context and on behalf of the organizational strategy, objectives, and mandates. The organization is the client; the benefactors are the executive and the organization.

 

Onboarding New Leaders

We want our new leaders to ‘hit the ground running’ yet on day one we may not be able to locate the ground they are standing on, how do they engage the employees, the business, the history and manage to the future?  Golden Career Strategies will engage your organization and coach the new leader through the intricate web of big picture, details and history to help them join the flow of the business while helping to set the new course.

Successful onboarding is fundamental to the success of the new executive and your organization.  A new leader that is not properly supported in entering the organization is bound to fail, over 50% fail in the first 18 months, can you afford that.

Call GCS for an in-depth complimentary review of your next new hire plan; let us help you to manage to success.

 

Pre-Employment Assessments

Assessments are an important part of executive selection, for the employer and the prospective employee.  Assessments are not a decision tool, but rather insight to apply during the interview process and explore the potential match of applicant in the position.  GCS utilizes Strong Interest & Skills Inventory and the CPI 260 to support the selection, on boarding, training and planning for your team.  Let us demonstrate how these tools are an investment in long term success.
