Do you lack an external “sparring partner” – a sounding board for your ideas?
Are you the “talent” facing a difficult project?
Are you a leader experiencing challenges with your satisfaction surveys?
Are you a new leader who needs to make a flying start?
“One of my senior employees and I undertook an hour’s telephone coaching with Christine Waldmann, and we were both pleasantly surprised by the results we were able to achieve in such a short time. During this session, we addressed a number of the core issues that were impeding our day-to-day collaboration. Once these obstacles had been revealed, we were able to deal with them proactively. I would highly recommend this approach to others who wish to ‘boost’ their collaboration with a close colleague.”
There may be many reasons that coaching is needed
Typically, there are just as many reasons as there are people. In general, external sparring around the day-to-day challenges that arise in the workplace unleashes more energy and establishes a foundation for the creation of better results.
Through coaching I will help you to achieve your objectives more quickly and effectively than you would otherwise manage. You will free up resources and tap into unrealised potential by becoming conscious of your objectives and the opportunities available to you in achieving them.
Coaching is not therapy. Coaching is about discovering solutions within yourself. Most people have solutions to most questions themselves, but they do not have immediate access to these solutions in a conscious way. Through coaching you become more conscious of your thoughts, your patterns of behaviour, your potential and the obstacles to achieving your goals.
In this way, you will be able to act differently straight away.
Why an external coach?
Leaders and colleagues can never be impartial sparring partners. It is therefore crucial to differentiate between, on the one hand, ordinary day-to-day discussion and/or internal sparring within the company and, on the other, coaching.
A coach is impartial, and coaching is a professional technique that unleashes the greater potential within those who benefit from it.
I favour realistic coaching that leads you towards your goal and in which you are an active participant. When working with me, it is therefore essential that you are prepared to work on yourself and are aware that you need to give something of yourself to achieve the results that coaching can offer.
On a personal level, I have both leadership and executive-level experience, and, as such, I am familiar with executive and strategic work, while I have also worked on a number of significant turnarounds. This insight and experience means that I am able to pose the right questions, put my finger on the key issues and guide you towards your goals much more quickly than other coaches, while always maintaining an understanding of the situation you are in and the world in which you operate.
I coach senior managers, middle managers and specialists.
