Executives & Management
Is blood really thicker than water?
Depending on the size of the business, chances are you have a solid mix of both family and non-family executives and managers on board. Despite playing a crucial role in family business success(ion), there are fewer resources and support geared toward you - whether you are a non-family or family player.
As your executive coach, I provide the confidential, objective, external sounding board you need to help you navigate the complex family business playing field. When it comes to work talk, there is only so much your family and friends can take.
- Are a family member in a management or executive position
- Just joined the management team and sense the workplace culture is "different"
- Are a long-time executive and succession planning in on your mind
- Notice your non-family staff is having issues with family member employees
- Are mentoring the next generation and assisting with succession
Executive & Management coaching provides the support you don’t necessarily find at work when you, your colleagues, or your boss belong to the same family.
Packages & Programs
Not sure which option is best? Call me at 250.891.4330 and we'll see what makes the most sense for you.
1. Just-in-Time Coaching
Makes sense if: You are curious about coaching and have short-term goals where a little nudging does the trick. Just-in-time coaching is also great if you feel a storm brewing or an unexpected decision needs to be made - an objective sounding board to help clarify your dilemma may just be what you need.
Commitment: 30-, 60- or 90-minute coaching sessions on an as-needed basis, about once every 3 to 6 weeks.
2. These Boots were made for Walkin' Package
Makes sense if: You have upcoming commitments and important conversations to prepare for, or specific results you'd like to reach. This is about walking the talk with strong support from an accountability partner to get you there.
Commitment: 60-minute coaching session 1 x week for the first month and every two weeks for the second and third month. Minimum 3-month commitment.
3. Structural Integrity Package
Makes sense if: You need to maintain a strong foundation and cracks are starting to seep in. For example, if the next generation is being introduced to the company (or you are the next generation being introduced), there are significant changes planned or being implemented in terms of management/ownership succession, or conflicts are brewing (even escalating) due to family business dynamics, an objective outsider can talk you through the issue.
Commitment: 60-minute coaching sessions 2 x month for a minimum of 3 months, ideally for 6-12 months during a transition.
