Executive Coaching & Consulting
From senior scientists and global executives at a pharmaceutical company to succession planning with a family-owned leather company, New Directions coaches have over 25 years of experience working with executive leaders. Frankly, most senior leaders are very strong at getting the job done; many need help with how to enlist the support and engagement of those around them. The top-down, command-and-control style of the 80s and 90s, no longer works. However, making the transition to a collaborative leadership model is not easy for some; they don’t even know where to begin. NDC coaches are not afraid to surface the behaviors that need changing and to help develop the road map for how to get there.
As a leading authority and author on implementing collaborative, team-based cultures within organizations, Deborah regularly coaches senior level executives who work in global environments on cross-cultural understanding, group decision making, strategic goal setting, managing personality differences and change management. Recently, Deborah and Michael worked with a high-level executive team responsible for managing resource arbitration and risk management. The senior level executive sought out NDC coaches to assist with helping the team to function better and shift to a more collaborative leadership model.
When asked what distinguishes NDC coaches from other professionals in the field, clients cite, again and again, the keen insights and depth of experience as key factors that make the difference. Clients regularly report how much they benefit from our flexibility, depth of knowledge and friendly approach. We are able to move from one area of expertise to another – providing “just-in-time” coaching or consulting as the need arises.
