Even if you are exactly where you want to be, you can still run into limits and limitations. For instance, how do you get your department or Supervisory Board to buy into your vision? How do you strike a balance between delegation and control? How do you break patterns and communicate more effectively? How do you deal with changing forces and requirements set by your environment? For as long as Van Ede & Partners has existed, coaching of executives, professionals and young professionals, has been a part of what we have to offer. With the help of our mentoring you can experience the development you need.
Our coaches guide you in your professional and personal development. As they are themselves highly experienced entrepreneurs and/or leaders, they can serve as an effective mentor. In partnership with your permanent coach they help to sharpen the skills your challenging job requires of you. And just as important: you learn to recognize and use your actual motivations and unique talents. Self-analysis is and remains the foundation to function successfully and perform optimally, as it allows you to see more clearly what you have in store. Where you want to go. What you want to become better at. What effect you have on others and how you can influence that. And the great thing is, this will offer you more job satisfaction and ultimately leads to a better work-life balance.
As a Director or a Manager of a large business unit, a lot is required of you. As an “Executive Professional” you have to develop a vision, offer direction and determine a plan. You must be knowledgeable, but at the same time you cannot ignore the human side of things. You must motivate and excite people, get your Board of Directors to buy into your vision and instigate change where necessary. You must maintain the balance between delegation and control.
You can only deal with these challenges when you’re fit, competent and capable in every way. You can work effectively by creating awareness about your strengths and weaknesses. Also, to keep personally progressing as well.
With our executive professional coaching we help clients view their responsibilities in an efficient manner, in a way that it offers maximum satisfaction. In doing so, we also return to the core: what drives you, what gives you energy? Then, together with a coach with experience in a similar role to yours, you get to work. You will then work on exactly the things you find important.
You are a respected professional. But even you must keep developing yourself as your organization demands the best of the best. And what they demand of you constantly changes. Because of this, you need to be able to effectively present yourself to management, employees and your direct colleagues. Also, how can you utilize your leadership skills more effectively?
At Professional Coaching we take a highly targeted approach. In partnership with you, we determine what will be your coach’s area of focus. We always intertwine the coaching process with real-world professional experiences and with your personal profile: your core qualities, knowledge, skills and personal characteristics. The result: more control over your own ambitions and motives, your responsibilities, your environment and your work-life balance.
The young professional in you wants to keep developing, meanwhile you have to get used to a new setting, your work environment. When you were studying you got to pick your friends; now you have little say in who you might be working with. How do you deal with all the different characters you will need to interact with on a daily basis? And then you have to deal with your job never being finished. There are always colleagues who are more than happy to approach a smart, ambitious young professional such as yourself, so how do you maintain a healthy balance?
How do you deal with this, while ensuring that your job does not become a burden? Young Professional Coaching teaches you how to best navigate your new position. Due to this you will be able to focus on what really matters: a meaningful career.
