Coaching

We live in volatilecomplexambiguous and uncertain (V.U.C.A.) times. For many of today’s professionals, such a climate challenges their ability to find a way to stay afloat in the everyday struggles and to stay on course with what is planned for the future. Leadership – if your own leadership skills aren’t motivating and engaging people you won’t get the results promised in your strategy.

Our Executive Coaching offers a unique blend of support and challenge to help you reach your professional and personal potential.

Our coaching will assist you to deal with both current and changing conditions, and both professional and personal endeavors.
We believe that “clarity is power” and that a powerful dynamic is unleashed when we get clear about our intentions and a path forward. This powerful dynamic is within the reach of all leaders. Bruns Leadership Consulting will help you get clear and make progress.

 

With our unique approach you will have…clarity!

What Our Clients Say

Our Coaching is Principled Coaching

  • Balance – We all enjoy a mix of things: some help us move forward and some hinder our move forward.
  • Contextual – All behavior makes sense in context. Our job is to help you make sense of your context.
  • Direct, specific and non-punishing – You will work in an safe environment with us.
  • Self-directed – You will be the one to determine how far you go and how fast you make progress.
  • Feedforward – We will deal more with the future (that which we can change) than with the past (that which we cannot change).
  • Disciplined – We use proven tactics and tools of consulting in organizations, and adapt them to work with individuals. This is neither “touchy-feely” nor one single approach.
  • Time limited – Our processes are designed to reduce the need for coaching as goals are achieved, not to make you dependent on a never-ending relationship.

Proceeding with Coaching

Our coaching engagement will be individually designed to fit your own situation and your own goals. We will provide you a tailor-made process designed to meet your goals in specific and timely ways. The following description of some typical tactics and tools will give you a sense of how we might proceed:

  1. In our introductory discussion we will check our relationship for fit and chemistry. A good coaching relationship will be one where both parties feel comfortable.
  2. We routinely start with a thorough intake assessment and interview. You will complete an inventory of your situation, and we will discuss the results as a way for us to begin identifying your goals and the shape of our work together.
  3. Temperament or style inventories can often be a big help in addressing underlying strengths and areas for development.
  4. Sometimes a structured module (such as “Building Bridges”) is just the right tool to help you build a strong network of peers, superiors, employees, and support.
  5. Homework” can provide specific steps to take, and can give you a sense of accomplishment and provide for meaningful dialogue during our conversations.
  6. Every couple of weeks we will discuss your progress in one-on-one conversations, either in-person, via video, or on the phone.
  7. Email and text connect us in between conversations.
