Individual Coaching

Understanding Others to discover One-Self

Client industry:
Personal Protective Equipment Manufacturing

Employee Size:
>4000


Coachee Situation:

A family run conglomerate is grooming one of its family members to take over the enterprise. One of the sons, who was poised to become the Managing Director decided to engage with us, so that he could be better prepared to take over the business at the appropriate time. While growing up, he had learnt the ropes but he didn’t have an all-round perspective that was required for the contemporary times.

Coaching Engagement:

The leader in waiting had to be coached to appreciate a number of perspectives – the current leader’s profile, their management style, key stakeholders, business performance, execution challenges, business innovation, change management etc. Our coaching focused on a holistic interconnected and comprehensive approach to allow the leader to define his way forward.

Coachee Results:

The first “aha moment” was understanding how different behavioral styles needed to work together. The current Managing Director was an “expressive” while our coachee was “analytical” and this foundational understanding helped them appreciate the differences and sequence their efforts. Over 15 sessions, the coachee ramped up in their ability to take over and indeed took over as Managing Director a few months ahead of plan.
