The Pinch

You have a strong middle manager.

But is she ready for promotion?

• The manager has a strong personality.

• You are not sure, if she is ready for the rigours of senior management.

• You need her to step up fast.

Let’s cover the gap

Step 1:

Your colleague sees herself clearly as a manager and leader with the help of a personality development tool (Enneagram).

Understanding her personality, she can set her break-through goals and fully commit to the second step.

Step 2:

She grows into her best natural leadership style, practices new behaviours and learns how to keep growing as a leader.

She switches into top management thinking and action.

She expands her leadership skills and tools.

From a risky decision ….

You need your strong middle manager with a strong personality to step up to the next level of management. However, you are not sure if she is ready yet.

The impact of her strong personality – the good and the bad - will be multiplied. The risk is that lacking leadership will generate frustration. And performance could fail.

As brilliant as this colleague is, you are worried she cannot deal with the rigours and demands of the next level.

The solution is to take your colleague through my 2-step program so she can get ready for top management - fast.

…. to a safe bet.

With my close to 10 000 coaching hours I have helped many managers to mature into strong top leaders. This is the experience and training that you will leverage off:

coaching for 13 years and an international accreditation as a professional coach (ICF PCC)

international certification in cutting-edge, best practice coaching tools: systemic tools (ORSC), Enneagram (IEQ9) and Neuro Coaching (mBIT).

many years’ management experience in international corporates

overcoming depression, anxiety and burn-out through ongoing self-development

Step-by-step brings results.

30 minutes consultation via zoom

  • Let’s get to know each other.
  • Let me know about your situation and the changes you are looking for.
  • I will show you how my 2-Step Program makes a difference fast. Let me know all your needs so I can customise my program for you.

Step 1: Start with the Inner Map

A map always makes life easier. Your colleague will receive

  • a professional Enneagram report for managers and leaders
  • three 60-minutes coaching sessions via zoom

She will understand herself on a new level:

  • what makes her a strong manager
  • what is needed for her to become a rounded, conscious leader
  • what practical actions her can take immediately
  • what goals she wants to commit to to be ready for top management
  • how working with me would make the difference

Now your colleague is ready to set her goals with her superiors and to commit to the Top Manager’s Program.

This commitment is the first and most important step.

Step 2: Stepping up into Top Management

The Top Manager’s Coaching program is designed to develop a strong manager with a strong personality into a rounded, conscious top leader. It is customized to cover your exact needs.

This is what you buy:

12 sixty-minutes executive personality coaching sessions over 4 months on zoom. 

3 sessions with the client’s superiors to set goals, to check in on progress, and for the debrief

In addition, the client has access to the coach via voice notes as well as short calls throughout the entire time.

This is what you get:

working from strengths to discover and build her best, natural leadership style

seeing and overcoming blind spots so they don’t trigger potentially negative ways of doing and seeing things

handling stress and anxiety better so negativity do not take over being clear on her impact on others to build robust work relationships

building trust in teams for best collaboration and high performance

working from the personal WHY for perseverance, inspiration, meaning and motivation

Stepping up her tools and skills as needed:

go from operative and tactical to strategic to take care of the true challenges at the top level

create vision and clear goals for inspiration and focus in the teams

strengthen people skills for better leadership: communication, giving and receiving feedback, handling conflict

strengthening decision-making skills
