This chief executive had a strong vision for the organisation and the culture change that would be needed. The coaching requirement was for a sounding board; a way to talk about their plans, reflect on how things were going, consider a few areas where extra attention was needed or opportunities that could be utilised.
I left all of our coaching sessions feeling inspired and ready for anything. In a situation that could have been overwhelming, it helped me see the big picture and keep the fire burning.
We could tell when X had been for their coaching, because their enthusiasm and care for what we were doing rubbed-off on everybody else. We felt we were in a safe and encouraging pair of hands and I know their coaching with Nick was a big factor in that.
