Large and small life challenges are important catalysts for change. Without challenge, an individual loses the impetus to learn and grow.
It is impossible, and perhaps even undesirable, to remove or eliminate all stress, but what is important is how we react in stressful situations. Our reactions can positively or negatively affect how we feel about ourselves and those around us.
Meeting stressful situations successfully increases our confidence in our own abilities and this confidence can keep us engaged and fulfilled in our career and with our family and friends. Feeling that stress has not been handled well can undermine self-confidence and compound existing difficulties.
Part of the coaching process is to learn more about yourself and to develop new skills to reduce stress and facilitate success.
There is no single solution that works for everyone, but coaching can assist executives to assess their individual and team options. Much like a personal trainer at the gym, the corporate coach can help top-level executives continue their own training to improve outcomes.
Expected coaching outcomes:
An examination of the sources of stress, the stages in the stress response, and how arousal (high levels of stress) affects performance. Concentrating on effective coping strategies and how individuals can stay ahead of stress. Attention is paid to the body component of stress by finishing with a progressive muscular relaxation, a technique focussing on contracting and then relaxing muscle groups in a systematic way.
Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator inventory in business is an effective method for examining an individuals preferences in decision making, learning, information processing and communications. A half-day seminar is constructed to help senior managers and executives fine-tune team building and problem-solving skills. Subsequent one-to-one sessions supplement the group session and provide privacy for working on individual work-related issues.
Understanding Interpersonal Relationships
This seminar provides a context for why it is important to understand the patterns that affects our relationships with others. Participants identify their own relationship template to reveal how these patterns affect business and home life. We examine some of the cultural forces that reinforce certain stereotypic patterns of relating and outline a basic strategy to change patterns you are unhappy with.
Communications and Team Building
This seminar focuses on what makes good teams with an emphasis on developing clear communication skills. We examine open versus closed information systems and integrate this information with a fun, effective communication exercise.
