Leadership and Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is an experiential and individualized leader development process that builds a leader’s capability to achieve short- and long-term organizational goals. It is conducted through one-on-one and/or group interactions, driven by data from multiple perspectives, and based on mutual trust and respect. The organization, an executive, and the executive coach work in partnership to achieve maximum impact.

Internal and Organizational Coaching

Organizational coaching aims at fostering positive, systemic transformation within organizations. It is frequently used to help organizations achieve strategic objectives, enhance leadership capability, and create culture change. Broader organizational needs are placed front and center, and the coaching is used to scale-up change across the enterprise. While there is overlap, this broader focus is in contrast to executive or leadership coaching which targets the individual’s development needs and more typically comprises standalone engagements.

Positive Psychology

Positive Psychology is the scientific study of what goes right in life. Its basic premise is: What is good about life is as genuine as what is bad and deserves equal attention from psychologists. Positive psychology is not just Happy-ology. As we will see positive psychology surely studies positive emotions but it goes far beyond this and also covers concepts and theories like engagement, character strengths and virtues, positive interpersonal relationships, optimism, and resilience as well as human flourishing, etc. In summation, positive psychology is a science of well-being that investigates what and how individual organization and community can flourish.

Health and Wellness Coaching

Health and wellness coaches work with clients to improve their health, vitality, and well-being by engaging in behaviors that have been proven to improve health and prevent disease including weight loss, fitness, nutrition, stress coping, sleep, mind-body and positive psychology interventions. The outcome of health and wellness coaching is expanded capacity for lifestyle change and sustainable lifestyle change. Many people struggle with something that is damaging their well-being, e.g. uncontrolled stress, excess weight, life balance, low energy, poor fitness, inadequate levels of positive emotions, or a medical condition. They find it difficult to engage, day in day out, in investing in their health and well-being in order to foster vitality and avoid a preventable illness.

While some people are what behavioral psychologists call “pre-contemplators” – either in denial or at rock bottom confidence levels around lifestyle change, most people can be described as “contemplators.” They frequently think about living healthier lifestyles and weigh up the pros and cons for change. Good intentions and earnest attempts abound. What fails is the implementation - people lack lifestyle and psychological knowledge, skills, capacities, processes, tools, mindsets, and support leading to autonomous, lasting lifestyle change.

Coaches help people overcome the struggle, and build resources such as self-empathy, self-motivation, self-awareness, mindfulness, new insights and perspectives, confidence, optimism, and resilience, and make changes that last. Their new lifestyles become embedded into who they are.

Life Coaching

Life coaching draws upon a variety of tools and techniques from other disciplines such as sociology, psychology, Neuroscience, positive adult development, and career counseling with an aim towards helping people identify and achieve personal goals. Specialty life coaches may have degrees and may have studied psychological counseling, hypnosis, dream analysis, divination, marketing, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Affirmations, Auditing and other areas relevant to providing guidance. However, life coaches are not necessarily therapists, consultants, sports instructors or health care providers, and psychological intervention and business analysis may lie outside the scope of some coaches' work.
