Executive Coaching

The role of executive coaching

Leaders and senior managers are faced with five major contemporary challenges:leadership challenge

  • The increasing rate of change and volume of “information”
  • vvvIncreasing performance demands in ultra-competitive markets
  • Pressure to find, develop, connect with and retain exceptional talent
  • Personal and organisational reputation management in harshly judgemental environments
  • Continuing “leader loneliness”, even in the most open of organisations



Common triggers for engaging a personal coach include:

  • As a non-judgemental, safe sounding board for ideas, problems and solutionspersonal coach
  • As a provider of personal self-development training for those seeking to reach their potential or who have taken on a new role or responsibilities
  • As a facilitator of goal-setting and the pathways to achieving them
  • As someone who is given permission to respectfully question assumptions and preconceptions, so as to broaden perspectives and reveal new ways of thinking and problem solving
  • As an unconditional personal supporter in stressful and challenging environments


Solution-Focused Coaching
Closely linked to solution-focused psychotherapy, true solution-focused coaching has proven to be very effective in recent years, working on the principle that most people are the experts in their own lives. It is the role of the solution-focused coach to help turn problems and challenges into goals, and to help identify the pathways to achieving them by drawing on the client’s past successes, resources and other supports.



In its purest form, solution-focused coaching:Solution based coaching

  • Helps clients to set their own goals and plan how to achieving them
  • Aims to reveal and provoke thoughts and explore possibilities, but not to teach
  • Draws on existing competencies, strengths and supports
  • Seeks to facilitate emotional and behavioural change progressively but quickly
  • Is unconditionally supportive




Neuropsychotherapy recognises that for permanent emotional or behavioural change to occur there must be a change in neural pathways and, to some extent at least, brain development and functionality. How we think, react and behave are the result of the physical design, connections and processes of our brain, and so it is impossible to change one without changing the other. By helping clients to understand how their thoughts and brain processes influence and shape one another, they will be better able to create, manage and sustain the positive changes they are seeking. Common outcomes are improved self-awareness, self-management, problem-solving and relationships.

Key components of neuropsychotherapy include:strong work team

  • An unconditionally safe environment and therapeutic relationship
  • Sharing of feelings, perspectives, challenges and goals
  • Principle of change within the brain as a prerequisite to creating permanent solutions
  • Sharing of neuroscientific information about underlying causes and solutions
  • Seeks to facilitate long-term brain, emotional and behavioural change progressively but quickly


Neuropsychotherapeutic Solution-Focused Executive Coaching

By combining solution-focused coaching with neuropsychotherapy, clients receive the best of both, helping them to identify challenges and goals, and then plan the actions that are most likely to successfully achieve them – and to do so in ways that result in long-term, broad-reaching, positive change. At the same time, clients are able to take more control of their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours, so as to better understand, support and gain the support of others.

Expected outcomes of neuropsychotherapeutic solution-focused coaching are:

  • Improved emotional well-being, awareness and management
  • Improved decision making through management of reactive, intuitive and rational thought
  • Improved clarity and success in setting and achieving goals
  • Improved confidence, communication and collaboration
  • Improved relationships, workgroup and organisational performance
