Virtual Coaching

In a time-starved and on-demand business environment, it is difficult for leaders to prioritise there own development. We know that coaching is a powerful vehicle for creating a safe one-on-one thinking space. The question is how do we as leaders, who all suffer from the over-whelm of multiple competing priorities, energise our leadership journey?

Traditional thinking expects the connection between coach and executive to happen only in face-to-face coaching. Yet, considerable evidence is emerging that suggests virtual coaching may actually have significant advantages over face-to-face coaching. With technology, we are seeing key wins in virtual interaction. What coaching clients are saying is that what they lose in visual information, they more than make up for in concentrated thinking.

Virtual Coaching is:

Focused:
Voice, meaning and expression are amplified, with no physical cues and distractions. With over 15 years of international virtual coaching experience, in over 30 countries, our partners confirm that this style of engagement is often more direct, arriving quickly at core business outcomes and leadership priorities.

Convenient:
Sessions can take place from any location, which is ideal for mobile executives.

Effective:
Clients can be coached in an environment in which they feel comfortable and are sure of their privacy, allowing for a depth of conversation that accelerates the coaching process.

Flexible:
Virtual coaching allows for greater scheduling flexibility, resulting in more consistent contact and regular short ‘check-ins’ with the coach.

Efficient:
Less time is wasted travelling to and from sessions, travel costs are eliminated, and the coaching process has little or no carbon footprint.

Cost Effective:
With less time wasted on travel, executives and coaches win time in their days which results in focussing more of their energy into delivering performance, and at a lower price point to clients.

Many clients, especially those spread across Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Australia, have opted for virtual coaching as a preferred method, with the result that there is now highly proficiency at delivering coaching sessions via Skype, Lync and telephone. The trusted connection between coach and executive remains intact. It’s only the medium that changes to suit the reality of modern living.
