The UGM approach to executive coaching
Coaching is essentially a series of robust conversations where you explore your personal and professional goals with someone trained in practical ways of supporting you to achieve them. It usually has a quite specific focus, for example, a performance challenge you’re facing right now where some extra help from someone ‘in your corner’ (but objective) could make all the difference. The process is non-directive, results-focused and the responsibility for taking action belongs to you, not your coach. There’s often a trigger for a coaching program, for example, starting a demanding new job, where the first few months could be critical.
You can be confident that your UGM coach is fully qualified and experienced. The coaching models we draw on are based on sound research in the behavioural sciences, coupled with the very latest data on how people think, solve problems and change. We also draw on our work in leadership, culture and strategy to help us be a sounding board for you, supporting you as you work out answers to the challenges you’re facing. At all times, our approach is grounded in respect for you and your values. We believe that coaching can play a unique role in building the self-insight and skills that will enable you to reach your full potential.
UGM views coaching a collaborative partnership between the coach and the coachee. If someone doesn’t want to be coached, then it won’t work. If there’s a poor level of rapport between you and your coach, then that will undermine a successful outcome. Lastly, if a person has long standing social and personal distress, then any results-focused coaching program should be put on hold while they seek counselling, or psychological help with those issues. Coaching isn’t counselling.
