Research by Harvard University shows that top performers and managers can attribute 85% of their success to twenty specific people skills (known collectively as emotional intelligence),that can be learned and mastered.
Unlike our basic IQ, emotional intelligence can be developed over time, and when it comes to building happiness and success these skills really matter. Emotional intelligence is crucial for executives and leaders, and with the support of a trained executive coach, these skills can be developed and refined.
Every coaching process has a sharp business focus, with two fundamental objectives:
- to develop individual capabilities and behaviors
- to raise business performance
My way of working is based on the principles of existential therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. The concepts of existential therapy help clarifying the coachee’s current situation setting objectives. Challenges or problems are rooted in overstressed or neglected existential needs; security, meaning, freedom and intimacy. Principals of cognitive behavioral therapy are applied to develop scenarios and to transfer the learning into real change. Focus is on “here and now” with cognitive restructuring and in vivo or imaginary exposure.
