Executive Coaching Services

As a natural extension of our assessment services or as a stand alone process, coaching is the ideal way for companies to help their employees grow and develop in many ways that ultimately impact the bottom line.

Our clients ask us for help in solving workplace problems that are too complex, long standing, or time consuming to be resolved internally. They need our help both in defining the problem and in implementing strategies that will solve the immediate issues and achieve lasting change.

Our clients hire us to coach an individual when:

  • A team member has potential to be more productive with greater impact
  • A person is starting a new position or role to assist in onboarding
  • They are about to promote or have already promoted someone to expanded responsibilities
  • They want to develop future leadership across the organization
  • There is a performance problem they can’t seem to work through
  • A leadership team could use some guidance to work together more effectively

In response to these needs, we developed a simple, effective process of individual coaching. Beginning with an intense period of one-on-one work, we may facilitate meetings with the person’s manager and work sessions with direct reports.

While no two assignments are the same, the basic phases and underlying principles are constant:

Courtney Consulting Group’s consultants are known for combining industrial/organizational psychology principles, research, and knowledge with solid, practical business experience to provide the best possible consultation and insights to our clients.

Our clients are Enthusiastic about the Renewed Energy and Productivity of our Coaching Program Participants.

Executive Coaching

Our executive coaching program begins with an executive assessment and any additional input as necessary such as interviews with board members and clients or an online multi-rater feedback report.

The program continues with a developmental feedback session and then three or more coaching sessions, as needed.

The deliverables for this coaching program include an action plan developed jointly by the consultant and the executive that includes accountability for meeting both behavioral objectives and long-term strategic business objectives.

Management Coaching

Our management coaching program emphasizes leveraging a manager’s strengths and accountability for making progress towards specific behavioral objectives.

This process begins with an assessment of key skills and issues. A developmental feedback session initiates the remaining three to eight coaching sessions. The deliverables include an action plan jointly developed by the consultant and the participating manager. Additionally, the program may include one or more meetings with the manager’s supervisor to discuss the action plan, review progress, and identify support areas.

Development Coaching for Professionals

Development coaching is a very popular, short-term program for professional level employees, supervisors, or mid-level managers.

The focus of this program is to help individuals better understand their style, strengths, and limitations and to identify ways of improving performance.

This program is directed toward a limited set of high priority development objectives in addition to our key accountability features.

An assessment and feedback precede the remaining three to five sessions, during which a development plan is formulated and implemented. The program may also include one or more meetings with the manager.

Career and Career Transition Coaching

A customized coaching plan, complete with goal setting and assignments, can be created for any person at any level.
