Lead is an Executive Coaching program aimed at future and current Executives who want to create extraordinary relationships in the workplace. To qualify for this program you need to be a “manager of managers”.

Senior leaders in organizations face tremendous pressure in meeting their targets when relationships at work are at odds. Elements like understanding a VUCA world, different generations within the work place, digital advancements, the Fourth Industrial Revolution and globalization all contribute to relationships becoming really complex. The strategies and tactics that worked up until a few years ago, are just not cutting it anymore.

Each program is designed to meet organization specific needs and is aligned with the overall organizational strategy. It is vital that CEO and Board Level support is provided for the leaders on this program. The Leader’s Dashboard serves as a personal and professional guiding system to ensure alignment between leader and the organization. A series of themed coaching conversations are crafted with the input of the relevant leaders. The focus of the coaching program is to create time to think and apply new insights on real world problems. This program is facilitated by experienced coaches, with a strong  background in people development and leadership.

Comprehensive assessment

Part of our coaching program includes comprehensive psychometric assessment. We believe it is essential for each leader to know what their strengths are so they can capitalize on them, but then also have an understanding of weaker areas, so they can hire for those areas of weakness. Each leader is provided with specific feedback regarding their Emotional Intelligence Level, Leadership Style, Thinking Style, Decision Making Style and Risk Profile.

Structure of the program

This program is facilitated over 6 months and includes the following:

  • Intake session

How do we create extraordinary relationships?

A recent study by The Boston Consulting Group found that, overall, workers continue to be more focused on intrinsic workplace rewards, such as those provided by good interpersonal office relationships, than on compensation.

In addition to the shifts in the world’s willingness to work abroad, the survey also highlights another reality for companies: the emphasis that workers globally put on good relationships with colleagues and superiors and on issues surrounding work-life balance. The emphasis on these “softer” job elements—versus financial compensation, which ranks a relatively low eighth among all job satisfaction factors in the world—hasn’t dissipated since our 2014 survey. And it will force companies to make changes if they are to continue to amass the skills and attract the types of talent they will need in the future, the report’s authors say.
