Coaching Services

Miles LeHane’s approach to Coaching begins with a structure that is customized and balanced to focus on the mutually “contracted” success objective agreed to by the Stakeholder (usually the employer), the Participant (entrepreneur, executive, manager or technical professional), and the Coach from Miles LeHane.

Miles LeHane offers three different coaching models:

1. Executive Coaching: For all leaders or leadership teams. Four program offerings are available.

  • Coaching for Leadership: Here, the focus is on leadership support at the top of an organization. The higher one goes up the corporate ladder, the fewer peers there are to whom an executive can turn for support or feedback. The old adage, “It’s lonely at the top,” certainly applies here. Our coaches become the support base for the executive—exploring the issues with which the executive must deal.
  • Coaching for Development and Success: This type of coaching focused on current or future assignments or opportunities. This is an undertaking to “groom” an executive for that next step and/or fine tune their skills as they become more visible to stakeholders. We all have our strengths and blind areas. Our coaches explore with the executive which attributes helped get him or her to their present position, and what attributes might be or have been a potential anchor to hold them in place. “Accentuating the positive” is the thrust of this model.
  • Coaching for Performance: The concentration of this type of coaching is on enhancement for current and future challenges. Does a manager have a rough spot to be smoothed out before he or she is ready for that next advancement? This model addresses a single issue—a weakness—a flaw that needs to be explored in depth, whether it is a personal characteristic that needs to be changed or a business skill that needs to be improved or altered.
  • Coaching for Strategic Projects: The focus of this program is on defined projects with the senior leaders/or leadership teams. Where the senior leader requires a confidant to define strategies and explore options. This coaching approach lends itself to merger/acquisitions and/or restructuring or other transformational change initiatives.

2. Balance Coaching for High Achievers: The underlying principle is that people are naturally resourceful, creative and whole. From a practical standpoint, this means that with guided probing questions, they will find solutions within themselves. They are fully capable of finding their own answers, with the coach being more of a guide, rather than an advisor or mentor. The role of the coach is not to tell them what to do, nor is it to “fix” them. Rather, through deep and curious questions, let them discover their own way out of their box. A consultant helps solve a particular set of problems, whereas a coach helps the client discover themselves as they create the life they envision. Each session will largely be based on one of three technical principles: fulfillment, balance, or process. In general, fulfillment and balance focus on moving forward. In contrast, process coaching focuses more internally, on what is happening in the moment. This service may be offered as a “stand alone” program or if preferred, integrated into our traditional executive/ leadership coaching programs.

3. Leading Forward with Employable Talent - Growth Coaching: This coaching goal is to assist businesses and organizations in better preparing this next group for a successful outcome.The coaching approach and modular design will allow for a prescriptive agenda that is customized to the organization’s culture and business model. The participant’s key areas for growth are to enable success and to include industry transformation/disruptors from a strategic point of view. The framework of development will loosely track against an overview of a ”Balanced Scorecard” model: a) Internal Operations b) External Stakeholders and Customers c) People/Human Resources d) Organizational Citizenship and the Environment. This coaching model is designed for individuals or teams. It is also suggested, when plausible, an internal mentor supports the participant and provides feedback to the Miles LeHane coach.

 

Other Coaching Services:

  • Business Management Coaching / Remote: A focus is on providing tactical support to a field operations manager.
  • Group Coaching: Change management is a typical driver for this coaching model.
  • Business Unit / Team Coaching: Team effectiveness especially with a senior manager or acquisition assimilation influences the coaching model and approach.
  • Retirement Coaching: Transitioning to an encore career or a new life style.
  • Assimilation Coaching: A fast track support for the new executive team member.
  • Career and Life Balance Coaching: Supporting personal management of balance.

Our Process Approach

Miles LeHane Companies has established a strong track record of successful coaching relationships. Leadership Coaching is a recognized key support and an effective tool for strategic projects, leadership support, growth and development for success, or for performance enhancement. Creating better leaders and managers is seldom easy. An effective combination of unbiased views and feedback, coaching techniques and fine-tuning of styles can lead to sustainable growth and change.

Develop a Customized Process — that is the key to our approach. Not simply a program off the shelf, but a customized program to meet the Stakeholder’s needs.
 
“Contract for Success” is established between the Stakeholder, the Participant and the Coach, by an in-depth exploration of the issues prior to starting the coaching activity. Many professional athletes use a personal coach to help them fine-tune their skills. Should it be any different in the world of business? Having a coach is an essential ingredient for any successful organization in a fast-paced, ever-changing business environment. Our years of coaching experience allow our coaches to effectively impact professional development for your current and future leaders.

Coaching: Dimensions of Leadership

Leadership is the key to an organization’s success in the environment of change.  Globalization, mergers and acquisitions, diverse workforces, virtual teams, and leaner resources exact increasing pressures and new challenges unknown to previous generations of leaders.  The new business environment has left many organizations without the bench strength and talent base for today’s needs. As competition raises the bar on expectations, an organization’s team must be able to respond effectively to new challenges.

At Miles LeHane, our coaching services are designed to enhance the individual contributions to the stakeholder’s objectives.  By focusing on the “Dimensions of Leadership,” we can customize and implement a coaching process aimed at individuals, teams and organizational objectives.  Our 30+ years of experience in professional services allows us to effectively support specific professional development for your organization’s leaders.
