The past Coaching assignments include numerous Senior Executives at levels of Senior Vice-Presidents, CXOs and Directors. The people I have coached are typically of 22+ years of work experience, and are running teams of sizes varying anywhere from 300 to 1200 people.
The on-going Coaching assignments comprise 8 CXO-level people (3 CEOs, 1 Executive Director, 2 Directors of Operations, 1 Director of Global Sales and 1 Deputy Managing Director) and 9 other Senior Executives at VP and Associate Director levels, across Bangalore, Hyderabad and Mumbai.
The total Coaching experience aggregates to over 2500+ hours of Executive and Sales Coaching.
The example areas of intervention that the Coaching assignments have addressed include the following six assignments that were completed over the last 8 months:
Preparing a successful Senior VP for the Global Marketplace, and in replicating his success as the Head of Engineering Center in India.
- Helping a Senior Director to adapt herself to the vastly different culture of the organization that she has joined 10 months ago.
- Getting a Sales Director (heading multiple Sales and Marketing Teams in the Company) to balance his good skills at ‘Managing Up’ with the required finesse for ‘Managing Down’ as well.
- Putting together and implementing a high-impact 100-day plan for a Chief Financial Officer who has taken on a new, high profile position that reports into the US headquarters.
- Inspiring a highly successful CTO to job-sculpt her new role to utilize her potential to the full, while avoiding the boredom that she was slipping into.
- Helping the Head of India Operations to present his center in a more favourable light, to win the kind of projects that the engineers in India would most like to do.
In keeping with the principles of Executive Coaching, all Coaching assignments have a metric that impacts organizational performance parameters. Typically, the person coached will end the assignment by making a presentation on a PAP (Personal Action Plan) to the Board of Directors and/or a group of peers.
