Executive Coaching

One of the secrets to a successful business is having effective leaders. While many business owners understand the basics of operating a company, they may not have the skills needed to lead. SD Mayer’s executive coaching services help to transform business owners into business leaders. Our coaches work one-on-one with our clients, offering support and guidance tailor-made to each individual.

What Is Executive Leadership Coaching?

Executive coaching helps clients maximize their potential. When you work with an executive coach, you build self-awareness through a collaborative relationship. The goal of coaching for executives is to drive transformational change in a business. 

Coaching sessions are one-on-one and can take place in several formats, such as online, over the phone or in person. Throughout the coaching sessions, the coach works to understand a leader’s weaknesses and strengths. They use their understanding to develop personalized solutions to help the leader grow.

Executive coaching often uses one of several models, including:

  • GROW: The GROW model stands for Goals, Reality, Options/Obstacles, Will/Way forward.
  • FUEL: The FUEL model stands for Frame the conversation, Understand the current state, Explore the desired results, Lay out a plan.
  • SOAR: The SOAR model stands for Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, Results.

Each model might take a slightly different approach, but they have many similarities. Each aims to uncover the leader’s reality and perspective, provide different points of views, set goals and determine the best way to move forward.

At the heart of executive coaching is a stable relationship between the coach and the client. The relationship should be built on a basis of trust and understanding. It’s important to understand that coaching isn’t the same as mentoring, nor is it the same as counseling.

With a mentor/mentee relationship, the mentor is typically an individual with more experience in a particular industry or line of business. They form a long-lasting relationship with the mentee, but it’s an equal partnership. The mentor typically has the job of providing their mentee with advice and tips for success.

A counselor typically provides guidance and advice to the people they work with, often with a therapeutic goal. Counseling typically looks backward and asks the individual to reflect on their past while also looking forward and planning for their future.
