The Executive Coaching Experience.
“When asked a friend whose life and business was suddenly skyrocketing how she did it, she had two words for us: Doug Winnie.”
Like most people, we all get out of bed every morning with varying levels of hope, motivation, ambition, drive, dreams and lists of things to get done. We do this in the faith and belief that we can make a difference in our lives and to others by applying our dedicated work and our best intentions to a short or long term plan. We also believe that the sum result of our efforts will bring long-term achievement, and rewards.
Sometimes, day after day and year after year these results seem just as far away from materializing as they did seven years or more prior.
“Now we too are succeeding and Doug’s coaching is the key factor. Doug is the consummate professional, lending his years of extensive experience and fine-tuned coaching skills to every aspect of our goals and plans. As a husband-wife team, communication is imperative and each week Doug gets us to the core issues of ‘why’ and keeps us motivated and inspired. He sets the bar high and makes us want to clear it!”
Like many of our clients, it is not their will to achieve, nor lack of ambition, and it is not their experience, capability or skills. It is not due to the lack of a good plan and it is not that they don’t work hard or put in the hours. For one reason or many reasons they are simply failing to execute the critical factors that will make a difference to their results.
Executive Coaching takes an objective analysis of the client’s situation and works on the premise that for things to change, things MUST change. Using communication and behavior analysis an Executive Coach can identify small challenges that when tested and modified, can make significant changes in the results a person achieves.
While on the surface the communication between Doug and his clients is about getting to the core issues. Doug is using a very refined coaching technique of challenging paradigms that hold us in habitual patterns. He is digging for information and confirmation well advanced of where most conversations stop.
He uses a plan that week by week builds on the previous conversations to advance the clients understanding of what actually may be holding them back from the successes they have been chasing. These are not his opinions by the way; these are building on the weekly blocks of new understandings and enlightenment that the clients themselves have gained through Doug’s communication techniques.
Consistently being told by someone what else you ‘should be doing’, ‘need to be doing’ or ‘should stop doing’ is certainly not motivating for anyone and can be annoying and demotivating. Executive Coaching is a specialist field of asking the right questions, allowing discovery and reflection and supporting a client often through a large or small personal and professional break-through.
The coaching relationship is built on integrity, trust and open dialogue that changes from week to week depending on the client needs and their goals for coaching.
The coaching relationship is a binding commitment to change on both sides of the relationship. Your unique situation and needs requires both the coach and client to commit to seeing with new eyes every session, and to commit to honesty in observation, communication, participation and application.
