Executive Coaching - A few expectations

  • Managers with team members, associates and Customers from across the globe are Service Providers, and more and more is expected from them than ever before. They are expected to deliver personalized problem solving, provide guidance and continually find and facilitate ways to share wisdom across Teams.
  • The methods and practices the Senior Managers need to follow are the means to achieve their ambitions, not the ambition itself. The Manager is a Service Provider to his/her team members, and in this role, is expected to have the essential maturity and humility to make this distinction between means and ends, by building it into the relationships.
  • Harmonized individual ambitions aligned with the organization’s objectives will achieve more in less time. This calls for an approach to issues and decisions that are systemic and use simple tools and a few basic attitudes to guide their plans. The Manager-Leader’s effectiveness is enhanced when seeking alignment with the team members’ clarity of purpose is added to his/her repertoire of skills.
  • Essential Senior Managerial Skills include: i) not being pre-disposed to a position of imposing one’s own world view on the Team Member(s) and other stakeholders; ii) Professionalism, iii) Assertiveness, and iv) Recognition of our role as change agents.
  • In order to win/retain the mind-share of the team, we should not focus on merely the tasks, schedules and other hard parameters of performance, but also provide the required leadership through a repertoire of Life Skills. The Manager-Leader, as a service provider, should focus beyond the transactions on hand, and move to build on Relationships, and possible Partnerships with the receiver(s) of his/her service
