Executive Coaching is about bringing out the best in people and conveying them from where they are now to where they want to be. It is a highly personalised learning process that is tailored to the learner's knowledge base, learning style and pace. It raises self-awareness, uncovers blind spots and enables the executive to accomplish more than otherwise he or she would have.

Outplacement and career transition
A lot of the standard outplacement offerings in the market are heavily focused on 'outer game' issues such as CV preparation, interview techniques and such. I believe that the outplacement process needs to go a lot deeper than this. This comes from my own experience with career change, career transition and the experience of exiting the corporate world and the challenges all of these present.
The most significant issues for people in these situations are 'inner game' issues such as handling the grieving process, dealing with resistance, finding meaning and strength finding. While these issues may not readily be apparent and in some cases not even understood, this is where the support of a good executive coach is invaluable.
It's not how good you are it's how good you want to be! Gandhi once said 'the difference between what we do and what we have the potential to do could solve most of the worlds problems'. So what holds us back from reaching our potential? Usually fear and self-doubt. Use performance coaching to explore and resolve these issues whether at work or on the sports filed Coaching for Performance works.
