Executive coaching provides leaders an opportunity to increase self-awareness, make choices about what they want to do and to see how those choices will benefit their career success and overall happiness in life.
Being in executive positions can be lonely and often others don’t provide them with direct enough feedback for the executive to clearly understand where they can improve in order to excel as a leader. Working with a professional certified executive coach helps support leaders to uncover these areas and to strategize on ways to improve their performance and reputation with their teams and other stakeholders in their business.
Our professional certified executive coaches will help you to increase your self-awareness, challenge you to think outside of the box for solutions that benefit you and your stakeholders, and take accountably and ownership for your future through conscious forward thinking action. This will lead you to the success you are passionate about at work and in life.
A typical starting place for executive coaching includes a six-twelve month engagement involving consultation to determine a customized approach to meet the leaders’s needs, assessment, stakeholder input and regular one:one interaction with a professional certified executive coach.
Cheryl Stafford and her colleagues are highly experienced and gifted educators. Their one-day coaching workshop offered a really nice balance of formal instruction, with solid materials and background reading, and informal, spontaneous exercises where participants were able to test elements of coaching and learn from others. I will use the skills that I gained often.
Cheryl is a dynamic, strategic and focus HR professional and it was an absolute pleasure for me to have an opportunity to receive training and coaching from her while we worked at BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Her expertise in leadership training and development was instrumental in shaping my career. Her ability to pinpoint behavioral strengths as well as areas of improvements has enabled me to grow in the most effective manner. Coupled with her warm and welcoming personality, she was a joy to work with and to learn from.
It’s truly a pleasure working with Cheryl. She’s an attentive listener and takes a true interest in her clients, their goals and objectives. She’s helped me diagnose a number of challenges and opportunities and has made my work more effective day-to-day while providing me with insights that will forever guide my career development.
It is truly a challenge to pin-point the greatest impact Cheryl has created in me — where do I start? Within a short period of time, Cheryl went beyond helping me gain clarity on my career path and consistently challenged me to assess circumstances under different lights, enabling me to become a more happy and optimistic person. The EQi she has introduced me to had a phenomenal impact on both my personal and professional life. It has allowed me to have a more in-depth understanding of self, and to make better choices when interacting with others.
