Elite Athletes Rely on Coaches; Why Not You?
Who We Coach
C-Suite Executives and leaders with C-Suite potential
Business Owners of small to mid-sized businesses
Ibet you weren’t prepared for the isolation and sometimes-overwhelming sense of ultimate accountability that accompanies the title after your name. Add to that the pressure to outperform each quarter, the feeling that you can’t quite rely on others to have a detailed understanding of figures, an unrelenting pace, the push for succession planning, stakeholder overload, a constantly shifting market, a team in transition… and you’ve probably come to realize that these are not one-time events. It’s easy to feel uneasy at times: it can get lonely at the top when you’re trying to find answers by yourself.
Sound familiar? The journey to becoming a great leader is never ending, with a myriad of challenges every day. Just when you feel you’ve mastered the role, new challenges arise that leave you feeling uncertain.
Just as elite athletes rely on a coach to keep them performing in peak condition, you can rely on us. Where your years of formal training taught you to focus on controlling known facts, our coaching approach will help you explore and better manage the unknowns.
We’re the coaches you call when you’re ready to open up; when you’ve come to that point where you know you need someone you can rely on to help you get unstuck or move to the next level. Initially, we talk. We try each other on for size. And when you commit, we commence commence Gramercy Consulting’s C-Suite Confidante™ process.
The C-Suite Confidante™ 4-Step process is tailored for each engagement and designed to help leaders live their best lives and deliver optimal business results.
In sports, coaching either pays off or it doesn’t; players either up their game or they don’t. The numbers are there. It’s easy to define success. In business, it’s just as important to assess the value of the coaching in terms of the leader’s performance. To do so, each engagement begins with the end in mind by creating the definition of success and the metrics used to measure it. In Step 4 of the C-Suite Confidante™ 4-Step process, the coach, the leader and the leader’s boss agree to a defined set of objectives for the coaching engagement and determine appropriate metrics. This definition of success is documented in a Coaching Agreement, which is signed off by all parties and assessed at the end of each engagement.
