ZDcoach - Executive Coaching

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”

Executive Coaching

Always in service to our clients and designed to complement our core business of search, we offer a myriad of coaching services.

Individual coaching is designed to work one-on-one with executives. Designed to focus on professional development. Your aspirations, your values as a leader and how you “show up” for your team. At ZDcoach, we work together to build upon your strengths and awareness.

Corporate coaching is an opportunity to bring executives of different opinions and strengths together. It’s a chance for senior leadership to gain insight into themselves and how their respective personalities and interpersonal dynamics complement ( or not ), the team as a whole.

There’s a plethora of evidence to support the notion that very few teams are equipped to fulfill their full potential. According to Shirzad Chamine’s work around Positive Intelligence (PQ), only 20% of teams achieve their true potential. However, by working together, we can identify individual and team strengths and create a customized approach that will produce alignment, tangible results, and ROI.

Team Engagement begins with trust. Earning and maintaining the trust of each team member. The methodology we utilize is a combination of behavioral interviewing, assessment, team building and strategic retreat workshops. It is a customized solution, tailored specifically to the needs of your organization and team. ZDcoach assures team alignment, noting that it is critical to the continued success of your organization. Identifying, Instilling, living and leading with strong values result in your team feeling heard, supported, valued and committed.

You may choose to hire a coach for a plethora of reasons. You may be grappling with big life decisions. Or you want to become a better leader for your team. A coach provides you with a confidential sounding board, listening and being present in the moment, asking thought provoking questions to help clarify your thoughts and define your goals.
