Behaviour Change Coaching
BEHAVIOUR CHANGE COACH for executives who have completed many courses
For executives that have attended several people, soft-skills, interpersonal-skills,
communications-skills, leadership and change management trainings, courses
and seminars, and
little or nothing has changed. They understand the theory, may very well
understand what they need to do or change, but can't actually do it!
They know ‘what’ to do, but don’t know ‘how’ to do it. We can help them
achieve the desired behaviour, attitude or habit changes needed quickly,
without any theoretical explanations!
Case Study Example
Client: Marketing Research Manager (PhD, MBA), UK subs
of US$50B Multinational Pharmaceutical Firm
Issue/s: Goal Clarification and Focus, and Shyness +159%
Peter is a senior manager, with high-potential (PhD and MBA) and proven
experience, with blocked promotion prospects, due to a flat organisation
and personality factors. Described as hardworking, highly competent in
his current role, well respected and liked by his peers and staff, with
high loyalty and integrity. At issue was to be considered for "a
more strategic and senior role".
- Goal Clarification and Focus - The initial work was sharply
focused on developing goal clarity (if you cannot ‘imagine’ achievement – or
anything else for that matter, you cannot do it), some work on self-perception
(felt uncomfortable and incongruent with his perception of behaviours
desirable for corporate success). To increase Peter’s probability
of success goal clarity, included; specifying what he wanted (NOT what
he did not want – reinforces the problem!). What Peter, and others,
would experience (see, hear and feel) having accomplished this goal.
Together with clearly identified resources, size and scope, time scales,
and first action steps.
- Shyness to assertive self-projection – This work was
directed at expanding behavioural flexibility, from being at choice
to move up and down the MBTI/Type scale from ‘shyness’ to feeling OK
about ‘assertive self-projection’, in a work context. We
used conversational personality profiling, various psychometric distinctions
and cultural imprinting. We also used a handy generative change technique,
that swaps a ‘bad’ (shyness) picture in their ‘minds eye’
for a ‘good’ one, and importantly at the same time, changes
unwanted behaviours and feelings for wanted ones, as well as bolstering
self-belief, esteem and confidence, whilst retaining his natural shyness
characteristics. We also closed Peter’s ‘incongruency’ gap
between his ‘work’ actual self-image and the desired self-image,
whilst safely preserving his ‘private’ image.
Peter has now been able to look forward to fulfilment of his potential,
gaining promotion (which he has achieved) and a more rewarding career.
Coaching time: 14 hours (4 sessions of 3.5 hours).
