Coaching As a Fast Track to Success in Your New Role
Congratulations on your new job! You worked hard and there are people excited to see you succeed, make an impact, and contribute to the organization. They believe in you!
And aren’t you smart to know you will proceed more sure-footedly and faster with an Executive Coach by your side. Our regular meetings will support you as you navigate your first months on the job.
By looking at how the new role is different, together we will create strategies to acquire the skills and relationships that you need.
By regularly checking in for honest and impartial support, you will grow out of your old habits and responsibilities, and form the behaviors you now need.
With an experienced coach as your guide, we will find the hidden pitfalls and navigate them before they become a problem. Don't wait months to hear about things in your performance review-- uncover and recover quickly.
My Success by Design Process will lead you through an examination of what you need to succeed.
Together we will explore: What does the new role demand that is the same? Different?
Who will you build alliances with? What are the seen and unseen relationships you need?
How can you acquire the skills, knowledge, insights and relationships you need? How can you track your progress and learn from your mistakes?
And with increased awareness, we'll work through a plan to make this situation a success.
Here are some comments my coaching clients have made at the start of our coaching. Do these sound like you?
"There’s a whole new area of knowledge I don’t understand!" (I’m a creative! Financials are a mystery to me!” or “I’m embarrassed to admit I don’t understand the newest digital technology”)
“It’s like there’s a hidden protocol here. I just don’t get it”
“I found out there was a really important person not on the org chart. Who knew the office manager was all powerful?!”
“I’m supposed to leave my old responsibilities to my successor, but people keep coming to me for help.”
With me as a coach you will notice and deal with these and other issues before they become setbacks.
“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; now put the foundations under them.”
