Leadership requires soft skills
Organisations and the people working there are complex to manage. We’re telling you nothing you don’t experience on a daily basis.
How do you weigh decisions about strategy and implementation, manage people and inspire them, or use your negotiating skills to effectively further the goals of your business?
How do you lead people through conflict, and maintain productive relationships with your direct reports, stakeholders and clients?
The answer to these questions lies in your mastery of soft skills
Executive coaching may be used to augment the soft skills you need to create growth and change in your business, effectively lead the people in your organization, and achieve both your personal and business goals.
Our expertise lies in advising you on what soft skills to use, and how your leadership may benefit from integrating the right use of soft skills fitting with your personal style.
N.B. We specialise in how to manage conflict productively. Read more about our approach to managing conflict below, or on the page on Leadership & Managing Conflict.

Executive coaching: Business and Personal
Usually, executive business coaching starts out with a business issue. However, the responsibilities, together with the necessary personal input inevitably have an impact on the executive’s personal life.
Addressing the mix of business and personal is usually a critical success factor. When the business and personal issues have been discussed and addressed, both the business results and the personal life improve. We guarantee absolute confidentiality.

Our focus is first on enabling you to deal with the effects of conflicts as you personally experience them. Especially this personal aspect is of critical importance and often insufficiently addressed. Next the attention is on how you handle conflicts productively.
