Executive team coaching

In times of change, crisis, or transition, Executive committee coaching allows the team to redefine its vision, governance, or its capacity for cooperation and transformation - despite different styles of leadership and diverse ways of thinking. To accomplish these goals, Turningpoint proposes methods and actions appropriate for each team.

Challenges

An efficient organization is lead by an efficient executive team. With the example coming from above, the collective leadership of the executive team is crucial for the overall excellence of the organization.

An executive team is made up of persons with dynamic personalities who must develop a real capacity for cooperation.  Each person functions in a particular manner, but is not necessarily aware of his personal preferences, and is rarely aware of the ways others in the team function.

An executive team is the convergence point of diverse ways of thinking that exist within the organization.  All are necessary, but can also be harmful if tensions between them - sources of excellence when well managed - prove to be paralyzing.

The executive team sets the course for the entire organization thanks to ability to develop commitment.  The consequences can be dramatic if the course chosen is not the right one or if the cohesion of the executive team appears weak or even fragile.

Therefore, the efficiency of an executive team hangs in the balance when its leader changes, when the company vision requires adjustments, when it needs to collectively promote a transformative project that implies changing habits and interests, or when it is in the middle of a crisis of cooperation.  This can be unsettling not only for the  team, but for the organization as a whole.
 

Impacts

The executive team will identify the vision it wants to impart to the organization and will be able to collectively promote this vision. It will Define its method of governance and its mode of functioning in order to be more efficient in its actions. 

It develops its ability to work as a team to better serve the organization, putting to good use the different personalities and talents found within the team.  Become a model of cooperation, it favors the expression of the organization's potential.

Approach


Turningpoint proposes a 4-step process:

 

  1. Turningpoint meets with the leader of the organization.  He or she is the sponsor, and who, with the help of Turningpoint, will identify the challenges that the team faces and determine how to respond.

  2. Depending on the needs of the team, the team will participate in one or more seminars lead by Turningpoint coaches.

  3. With Turningpoint, the team leader clearly defines his or her position during different workshops: directness, openness, support..., and makes it known to his team members before each session.

  4. A monitoring system that is decided upon by the leader with the help of Turningpoint is put into place and can rely on certain team members or the team as a whole when anchoring change.
