The talent in your company is the key differentiating factor in your company’s future success. Human Resource professionals and the organization as a whole have a primary focus regarding talent development: providing a pipeline of leaders who excel at the management level. Leadership and talent development is a serious concern for organizations, a concern that can be resolved through executive business coaching.

Choose executive business coaching as your #1 leadership development strategy

“Coaching is now part of the standard leadership development training for elite executives and talented up-and-comers at IBM, Motorola, J.P. Morgan, Chase, and Hewlett Packard. These companies are discreetly giving their best prospects what star athletes have long had: a trusted adviser to help reach their goals.” CNN.com

Executive coaching is one of the most effective management development tools for growing future leaders. It helps strengthen your leadership bench by providing growth opportunities for top employees. For high-impact leadership development, consulting talent management is a smart investment that will pay immediate dividends as well as advancing your company’s long-term gains.

Choose to make executive coaching services available to your top talent. This important tool will directly increase your people’s engagement and create internal career advancement opportunities. Coaching is the right choice for your senior leaders, high potentials, mid-level managers and even derailing leaders.

Here’s why executive coaching works: the executives being coached work closely with the key stakeholders (e.g. your manager, Human Resources) to identify the top three objectives they plan to achieve through the coaching program. These objectives must fit the executive’s own needs, the goals of their department and the organization. Business executive coaching is always a valuable and measurable process because stakeholders are included in creating the coaching objectives.


Executive coaching services benefit the entire organization

Garfinkle Executive Coaching doesn’t just benefit the executives being coached; it also directly impacts the people they work with. Everything you do at work involves at least one other person-above, below or at the peer level. This executive coaching program positively impacts people throughout the company by improving their communication skills, decision making, collaboration and cross-functional relationships.

Executive Coaching Benefits...

What makes Garfinkle Executive Coaching Services different?

It’s a highly individualized practical approach in real-time.

Joel’s executive coaching program is effective because of its highly individualized approach. Good coaching must be tailored to each person because every company, situation and person is unique. Whether the focus is on grooming high potentials, growing leaders, personal developmental needs or basic performance improvement, each executive being coached produces his or her own concrete, measurable, outcome-based objectives. These objectives are communicated and discussed with key stakeholders throughout the coaching process.

Our clients tell us that our customized approach is one of the most effective leadership tools for talent development they have ever used.

Joel has helped me build long-term leadership skills so I can advance into an executive level position. I am raising my team’s game to a whole new level and have learned to delegate more effectively. My relationships with peers, direct reports and key decision-makers have improved markedly, making me a more confident leader who recognizes the impact and value I bring to the organization.

Standard training programs have limited effectiveness in developing leaders because they are one-time, one-size-fits-all occurrences. Training programs lack customization which limits learning. Training takes a leader away from work, while our one-on-one custom-built program works with what’s happening on the job in real time.

High-potentials thrive in executive coaching programs

High potential employees are critical to an organization’s future success. They want to know the company has a serious commitment to their development. They want to grow as leaders and move from good to great. If you want to retain the best, you need to invest in the best.

Executive coaching is one of the most effective leadership development tools for retaining these superior employees.

Advantages of an external coach

Bringing an external coach into an organization provides a high level of objectivity to the situations, issues and challenges that an employee faces. Conflict of interest becomes a non-issue because of the external relationship. The external coach provides unbiased opinions, thoughts and guidance from a different perspective. Having confidential conversations about the culture, environment, situations and people is supportive to the employee. The coach brings business knowledge, experience and specific expertise in areas that aren’t available inside the organization.

Additional factors include flexibility in the timing of delivery, an objective perspective and complete confidentiality and privacy for the executives.

Executive business coaching is your company’s key to attracting and retaining top talent. Joel has a proven track record of success, and implementing his coaching program will demonstrate your commitment to developing and motivating your leaders of today and tomorrow.
