Coachee Situation:

A Partner with a leading management consulting firm wanted to explore coaching as an opportunity to transform himself, his team, and his organizational results. He was confident of his job but he felt he could do better in specific areas. He wanted to engage in coaching to focus on building gravitas, breaking silos, and balancing his priorities.

Coaching Engagement:

In addition to SMART Goal setting, we brought in Pearson’s Heroes and archetypes into the coaching conversation. We were able to guide him to situationally tap into his emotions. For example, he was able to unleash the ‘Warrior’ showcasing preparation, gravitas, and strength as he approached key leadership meetings. Understanding, acknowledging, and bringing forth various archetypes helped the Partner improve his situational fluency in leadership settings, to a degree that he is now comfortable leading conversations at a higher level.

We utilized Neuroscience of Relationships to build on his ability to get his team to showcase vulnerability and then move to trust, accountability and results. The ability to dissolve silos also helped him to identify the next set of leaders who could be potential successors to his role.

We utilized a Life Balance tool that allowed the coachee to record and reflect on his various life roles, time spent and results achieved thereof. Weekly reflections helped him identify “time sinks”, take control of his most important priorities, and assign time accordingly.

Coachee Results:

The ability to bring in specific tools and concepts into the coaching discussion provided the coachee with the intellectual richness and execution rigor to make progress on his goals. His transformation with coaching with us was so powerful that he now works through us to address some of his customer’s coaching requirements. Most of his team members have also been referred to us and many have them been promoted to Partners in his team now.
