Executive Career Coaching
Imagine having your own personal career mentor supporting you to be successful in your career?
Top athletes have personal trainers, wealthy people have financial advisors, and successful people have their own executive career coach. If you are a motivated and ambitious executive or professional choose Denise as your career mentor.
You know you want to be successful, you have goals and ambition, and an executive career coach / career mentor can support you develop and achieve your career goals.
What can a career mentor do?
As your career mentor, Denise can be your confidante, your personal sounding board. She knows that as a senior manager it can be hard to admit you need help and to know who you can open up to. Often you don’t want to burden your family and it’s hard to be honest about concerns with colleagues and bosses. That’s where an executive career coach will help.
From helping you prepare for a new role, to support and challenge all aspects of your business Denise has the credibility to help. Denise understands business, she has held senior roles including Assistant Director, Centre for Business Excellence for Royal Mail. Denise has an MBA and understands business issues.
What makes Denise an effective executive career coach?
Denise’s expertise as an executive coach is called on by senior executives when they need a confidential sounding board and would benefit from career mentoring.
With a counselling background and adherence to the British Psychological Society Code of Ethics Denise appreciates the need for business sensitivity. As your executive career coach, with no investment with your organisation, Denise is free to address challenging and sensitive issues in a constructive and supportive manner.
Denise has held senior roles and alongside actual business experience her psychological and career coaching expertise can help you get the success you want.
“Your professional experience and qualifications made a big difference in my search for an executive career coach, but from the sessions I was pleased to learn that you had made a major career change and had real experience of the challenges faced in doing so – I felt that I was working with someone who had not simply changed career to become an “instant” coach, as was the case for many coaches that I researched.” Alan, London
How can you work with an executive coach?
You may need help in identifying a new challenge, to exceed expectations in a new role.
You may be facing challenges and need a fresh perspective.
We can use assessments and coaching to understand your strengths, deal with blind spots and ensure you have an effective strategy for your goals.
What we do will depend on your needs, an executive career coaching programme will be carefully developed to meet your goals.
You may need support and guidance to achieve career goals. For some it will include – how to get the best out of people (influencing, motivating, and dealing with conflict). For others it is about managing time. Others still choose executive career coaching because inside they lack confidence and need sensitive support to find their inner strength to achieve big goals.
Take some time out start with a 2 hour session to work with an executive career coach to objectively review what is going well, discuss your challenges, focus on your goals, create some new ones and celebrate your successes. Denise can then continue to work with you as your career mentor.
Executive Coach Client Examples
Fliss had taken over as sales director for the Midlands region and whilst successful to date, wanted to make sure that she would make an immediate impact in this new role. Talking with Denise on a fortnightly basis gave her an external perspective, to keep her focussed on business and personal goals.
Barry was noted as a success, but his macho style wasn’t getting the results in his new role. He chose to work with Denise for some honest feedback on how others see him, to develop effective team working, and to ensure that the strategy was accepted by all so the staff worked with him rather than against him.
Let’s talk. Whilst I offer various assessments and programmes, let’s take some time to discuss your objectives so we can work out what will be the best way for us to work together, to enable you to make a significant impact for yourself and your business.
