Description:

While most executives earn their place in the organization by excelling in one or several specific areas – perhaps finance, operations, or sales – little training is available to help those who lead an entire organization, especially inside the organization itself.

AGH’s executive coaching services are objective, confidential and tailored to an individual and organization’s needs. Based on a mutual understanding of results desired for both the executive and the organization, our coaches first gather information about the executive’s performance and environment, combining individual testing and interviews with key personnel in the organization.

That data serves as the foundation for goal-setting with the executive, delivery of skill-building and leadership training if required, and a flexible schedule of personal coaching. During personal coaching sessions, AGH’s consultant serves as a confidential, objective, and “safe” sounding board, yet is able to provide candid and sometimes challenging feedback to keep the sessions progressing toward goals.

A coaching program may be limited in scope or ongoing, depending on the nature of the goals and the executive’s requirements.
