EXECUTIVE COACHING


Kavita Lobo

Nishant Hari, 40-year-old executive is employed in banking & insurance sector. We began coaching to work on his personality development. In our first session he described himself to be self-loathing, feeling inadequate as compared to others at workplace. Organization is sponsoring the coaching intervention, they see potential in Nishant, he is required to be now readied for leadership position.

Over five sessions, using structured coaching model, we defined our goals, prepared the action lists, understood the patterns for negative self-talk, mitigated options and rolled up our sleeves to get going. There were several deep questions, hours of listening to spirit behind words, planning, checking on commitment levels and self-reflective home works. He stayed put in the journey. His vocabulary changed from “I am not capable” and “I never have time to build my skills” to “I am enough” and “I am an explorer”.

Nishant, today, is a different person, he is more driven, focused on end result, up for a much-awaited promotion.


Do you see yourself in Nishant’s shoes? Or it could be on similar lines. Executives seek coaching for several reasons. They could feel ‘stuck’ or want to get ready for new job roles or perhaps are looking for change or simply need to know how to move ahead in the organization. Executive Coaching is a structured process to converse with clients, understand where they are and where they want to go in the organization. It is a distinct form of learning, here the individuals take onus of their personal growth and effectiveness in real time, with the help of a coach. It is believed that “the more an individual is involved in identifying problems, in working out and applying solutions for them and in reviewing results, the more complete and the more long-lasting the learning is. This form of self-improvement tends to bring about learning with a deeper understanding than learning that is taught.”

The percentage of respondents citing that particular reason is as under:

The return on Investment in coaching is impressive, individual’s specific need is addressed, the client comes back to workplace with increased motivation and productivity. Note it is not about correcting of a problem but empowering individuals to develop management skills that impact the entire organization.

Let us be clear, who doesn’t want to step up in their career?
Who will not prefer a thought partner or a sounding board to discuss ideas and challenges?
I work with a premise that everyone is able, creative to find their pathway, I stand next to them during the navigation holding the torch.
