Coaching

What is Executive Coaching? 

 

Coaching targets professional development, focusing on improving skill sets and ultimately, business results. It is typically comprised of a series of structured one-on-one meetings, over a 6-month timeframe aimed at enhancing the client’s performance on two levels:

 

  • Individual Performance

  • Organizational Performance

 

What is Accomplished through Coaching?

 

  • Identifying strengths and development areas

  • Unlocking potential

  • Setting professional development goals

  • Developing an action plan

 

What tools are used in coaching?

 

  • Questioning techniques

  • Homework assignments

  • Neuro science techniques

  • Self Awareness assessments

    • Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

    • 360 Feedback surveys

    • Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI)

    • StrengthFinders

    • Emotional Intelligence

 

Coaching is not therapy or psychological counseling.  All coaching conversations are confidential, except in the case of real or imminent abuse, harm or unlawful behavior.

Testimonials

 

Margie has a special way of helping people find their own answers.  When I worked with Margie I was in the middle of a personality conflict with a colleague. I saw no hope of things getting better, however, with Margie's coaching, I was able to envision and transform the tension into a successful working relationship that got results for my team and organization.  This was a huge professional milestone.

Margie is a great executive coach!  In the year we worked together as a part of a leadership program, Margie helped me with a break through to better understand my values and how to use them to prioritize my time.  She helped me develop a decision matrix so I can confidently say NO to some requests of my time - so I have room to say YES to the opportunities that will help me stretch and excite me.  I highly recommend Margie if you are looking for someone who is able to cut to the chase, ask tough questions and hold you accountable until you can hold yourself accountable.

As a newly promoted supervisor, I had challenges supervising the guys who had been my co-workers.  Through my coaching sessions with Margie I learned how to become a more confident and balanced leader.

I was unhappy in my job.  Margie helped me sort things out and gave me the courage to seek employment elsewhere  I left that job and am now extremely happy in a position that better suits me, my goals and values.
