A Senior Executive in a global retail company had reached a fork in his career path and was finding it impossible to choose between two possible options. Focussed discussion raised some significant issues about his personal life which reframed the way this client had been thinking about the problem and explained his ‘procrastination’. The new perspective made the decision very clear.
A Legal and Commercial Director of a leading automotive company had been promoted to a Department Directorship, his first Board-level role. His objectives in coaching were to look at unsatisfactory working relationships. Only a slight shift of perspective, which required him to do some ‘letting go’, was necessary for him to successfully raise his game. This also freed him to clarify his mid and long-term strategies for professional development.
A Senior Civil Servant in a high-profile government department was anxious that he had been over-promoted to his recent role, manifesting in his feeling ill-equipped in terms of knowledge and experience. Focussed analysis allowed him to pinpoint the precise issues that were generating concern and enabled him to recover his equilibrium and play to his strengths.
An Ambassador in his mid-50s needed to translate his experience in diplomacy and negotiation into ‘non-governmental’ language, in order to move into the ‘outside world’. The process of carefully identifying and clarifying his ‘offer’ resulted in an exciting senior role at a world-class centre of learning. From here he was also able to negotiate two much-wanted Non-Executive Directorships.
