Executive Coaching felicitation icn


Coaching Philosophy and Methodology

Our coaches adhere to evidence based coaching (EBC) principles, which include working at the intersection of research-based methods and knowledge, the context of the client, and the advanced coaching skills of the coach. Every engagement is customized in collaboration with the client and the coach to create a process design that ensures effective achievement of the client’s goals. All of our coaching services are based on foundation of trust and confidentiality. Our coaching methodology includes contracting, rapport building, skill and personality assessment, awareness building, action planning, and managing accountability.


Assessments and Methods for Coaching

We are certified in a large assortment of assessments, methods, and tools that quickly enable deep insights into our clients’ interests, needs, leadership styles, values, and skills in many areas related to leadership, organizational effectiveness, and team development. In collaboration with the client we draw upon our extensive experience with instruments to select the best options for each coaching program.

Our executive coaching process typically includes at least one personality profile (such as the Birkman, Hogan, MBTI, or Enneagram) and a 360 assessment.
