CHALLENGELynn was the CEO of a $250 million dollar global pruning organization and was taking on too much of the management burden for her direct reports. Unable to delegate effectively, inspire a vision, and manage strategically, Lynn became absorbed in transactional details that left her unprepared to focus on strategic leadership. Board pressures and falling employee engagement scores led her to seek a coach to help her refocus her efforts and adopt a different approach.
SOLUTIONThe CCI coach helped Lynn define how she wanted to show up as a leader. Lynn’s coach worked with her to clarify her needs, establish clearer expectations with direct reports and drive process quality accountability down through the chain of command. Lynn’s coach helped her zero in on three distinct things she could do to elevate her own leadership and drive the process needed to achieve strategic timelines. Her action plan focused on driving real change and sustained improvement.
RESULTSKey players were tasked with specific project and operations management responsibilities. Lynn’s communication style became clearer and more inspiring, helping her to create better alignment and clarity of expectations with her direct reports. More time was gained for executive leadership and driving the vision for the business. Employee satisfaction and engagement scores improved by 20%.
CHALLENGEGreg was considered a rising star talent and was identified in the succession plan as having the potential to grow into a corporate wide leadership role. The CEO saw Greg as a high-potential leader and wanted to provide coaching for Greg to ready him for future growth and expanded responsibility. CCI Consulting had previously provided executive coaching for the CEO, so he asked CCI to coach Greg in an effort to expedite his development.
SOLUTIONThe coaching engagement began with a series of exploratory conversations and assessments to help Greg identify his behavioral style, personality profile, and leadership attributes. CCI helped Greg to define his critical development activities and develop an action plan. The action plan led Greg to apply new management and communication approaches to his particular challenges around people, process and accountability, as well as identify and engage with key sponsors and mentors throughout the organization.
RESULTSGreg learned the importance of leveraging his strengths to assert in more direct and timely ways. Feedback and input from key sponsors and mentors helped Greg learn how best to deal with delicate yet important business needs. Greg became confident in how to plan strategically and communicate and engage his team in ways that motivated them to step up, increasing their collective impact. Shortly after the coaching engagement, Greg was promoted and took over as COO within 2 ½ years.
Client SituationRoger was a successful regional sales leader running at a blistering pace due to a demanding travel schedule and extensive family and community obligations. Because of his desire to please, he felt overextended and out of control. Roger was no longer operating at his best and he feared burn-out was approaching. The organization’s leaders recognized the valuable role Roger played and his strong history of success, so they engaged CCI Consulting to provide executive coaching.
CCI ApproachRoger’s coach helped him zero in on the activities that created the biggest impact and generated the most personal fulfillment, then develop the capacity to say “no” to less impactful or fulfilling activities. The CCI coach conducted a 360 assessment that helped him better understand how others perceived his actions. A plan was created by Roger’s coach that set healthier boundaries and gave him the freedom to invest his energies in the activities with high personal and professional payoffs.
Client OutcomeTo create better work-life balance and greater impact, Roger refocused his priorities. Roger eliminated a number of unfulfilling obligations, and laid the groundwork for greater success and personal fulfillment by learning when to do, when to delegate and when to say no. Since his coaching, Roger has been promoted to an area of greater responsibility and credits the coaching process with giving him the tools and perspective to find better work-life balance while achieving greater success.
