FGC’s Executive Coaching delivers the objectives of both the Organisation and the Executive. Its performance and the benefits delivered are measured against those objectives. All coaching is undertaken within the context of the markets, industries and changing context in which the organisation operates. Coaching briefs are taken from the organisation’s stakeholders as well as the Executive.
FGC’s coaching improves the leadership strengths of an individual which is then leveraged to flow on to broad organisational improvements.
FGC Coach-Mentors provide CEOs with an entirely private space enabling in-depth highly confidential one-to-one discussions. Organisational briefs are not usually taken however organisational objectives are established and are the benchmark for measuring the success of the assignment.
The engagement is pro-active, not passive, and the iterative process facilitates a different way of approaching business and people issues.
Customised Individual Extension coaching for leadership and cultural leverage is limited to multiple concurrent issues. Extension Coaching benefits leaders with less complex scope and scale accountabilities and where the focus is one area of the business rather than multiple organisational areas and functions.
An FGC Coach is the Leader of each Cohort of 4 Leaders who have the opportunity to learn to facilitate and to work in teams of Leaders from across an organisation. The Customised Topics are selected by the organisation to meet their needs to enhance succession Bench-Strengths. Each participant develops an understanding of the selected 8 critical topics and enhances the skills and behaviours they will need to lead at a higher organisational level. FGC’s Cohort Coaching model provides the participants with feedback from an individual and a team perspective. Cross-organisation engagement and understanding are additional outcomes.
Included in FGC methodologies is the establishment of a highly confidential space in which FGC Coaches work with their Executives. When working with new Executives, the focus of FGC Coaches is to assist leaders to settle into their new roles, as quickly as possible with confidentiality a critical element in their work.
Within that confidential environment, on-boarding support includes the following activities.
Exploring the differences between the realities of the role & the initial role description and how to meet the revised needs
Placing the role into the context and DNA of the Organisation and the reality of its context.
Identifying gaps which have arisen between the Executive’s previous knowledge and experience and the experience needed in the new role, and how to fill those gaps.
Exploring the Executive’s perception of the culture and the dynamics of the Executive’s new organisation and experience from previous organisations and the behaviour required by the role.
Considering Peers, Structure and Governance to identify specific opportunities and or challenges they present and to assist the Executive to develop solutions – quickly.
