Goals for Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching. Make the needed adjustments.

What are your goals for executive coaching? These are the results you want to achieve through working with us … your desired outcomes … those things that really matter and will make the greatest difference moving forward.

We find the goals leaders most often outline break down into a few broad categories and cluster around a handful of key themes.

  • Applying Something – There is a need to focus attention on applying knowledge or resources to a current situation but there is something that hinders it.
  • Adjusting Something – There is some problem to be addressed. Competency, attitude, approach, mindset or strategy needs to be adjusted.
  • Improving Something – Outward circumstances show you are doing well, but you know you can do even better by focusing on specific areas.
  • Leveraging Something – Opportunities exist. Thinking it through and planning how to maximize existing resources and competencies will pay dividends later.
  • Adding Something – Acquiring new personal or professional competencies expands your capacity to be better positioned for future opportunity.
  • What is it that you are seeking to achieve: personally, professionally, organizationally?
