Business Coaching

Expert Guidance

Executive Coaching is like helping someone repair their own glasses. They can’t see clear enough to fix them when they are off but also, can’t fix them when they are on. Similarly, Executives and CEOs are often too close to their thinking or values to view them critically, or from another perspective.

As your Executive Coach, Green Bench enables leaders to reflect on how their thinking and value systems can be perceived across their organization.Understanding what is relevant and what needs to change is paramount to strong, effective leadership. Through safe, in-depth dialogue and questions, Green Bench endeavors to help Executives clarify their limitations, offer strategic support and help them reach their maximum potential. By doing this, the organization can move forward.

Tension – a key leverage point

As managers, you’re expected to work with your team members, peers and stakeholders to achieve organizational results. How you deal with tension impacts the quality of your relationships and how others experience you.

Tension is the signal that there are differences in the way something is being viewed. There are two typical ways of dealing with tension. The first is to see tension as wrong and try to take control and get the action “right.” The other way is to work through the tension with dialogue and communication. Specially targeted at managers, this program is suitable for you if the following questions resonate:

  • As a manager, what can you do to better manage tension in a way that leads to personal growth and better rapport with your team?
  • What is your leadership stand and how does that impact how you manage tension?
  • What are the personal values that matter most to you and how do they impact the way you manage tension?

The art of inquiry – the power of curiosity

This unique course has the power to teach a leader how to leverage his or her thinking.

Think of a pencil or pen and its impact on civilization. Contracts signed, books written, declarations and love songs put to paper. Such a small tool has had such a powerful impact. Yet to look at pencil or pen, you would never dream of its capacity to bring such change.

So it is with the simple tool of inquiry and asking questions. The questions a leader asks form the very thinking of an organization. Change the questions and change the organization!

Few leaders realize how to use the power of inquiry to work with others and how the right questions can expose faults in thinking, lead to a new, deeper way of thinking and reveal the heart of the issue.

Key elements include:

Why ask questions? Where do we start? What’s behind a question? How do you ask effective questions? How do you provide context for your questions?
