Companies that are preparing themselves for long-term success cultivate leadership from within and uncover hidden talent. Globalization, the demand for skilled talent, and rapidly evolving technologies require organizations to focus on executive coaching and develop high-potential employees into leaders.
At Bedford HR we provide tailored leadership coaching programs for individual executives and groups that align with an organization’s performance management systems and succession planning models. We help current and future leaders identify their strengths and developmental areas, and evaluate how they can meet their organization’s strategic needs and challenges. Ensuring that your organization has the best leaders is the difference between WORLD CLASS business success and mediocrity. Bedford HR operates on this principle of world class service and, in turn, our clients choose us as their TRUSTED BUSINESS PARTNERS to assist them with these critical efforts.
WE DELIVER ON THIS PROMISE BECAUSE WE HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE, CERTIFICATIONS AND EXPERTISE.
At the cornerstone of our Executive Coaching practice is our steadfast belief in confidentiality. Our approach is grounded in improving emotional intelligence and resonant leadership competencies, developing active listening skills, working with systems, intentional change theory, and mindful reflection. Engagements may include qualitative 360 degree feedback, guidance in identifying appropriate learning experiences, observations at meetings and discussions, and support in developing strategic plans and achieving professional goals.
Before our work commences, we agree upon coaching goals and objectives so that our client is looking forward to an envisioned future, not back to what they might have done. Client’s agendas typically include how to meet short term goals, achieve long term aspirations, conquer today’s challenge, generate tomorrow’s strategic opportunities, manage their time in and out of work, do their current job better and prepare for their next role.
Different clients in different situations have different needs and we, therefore, tailor our approach accordingly. Sometimes we recommend that a client gain additional data to inform the coaching process via feedback from colleagues or by using psychometric profiles, such as 360 Degree Feedback. By doing this, we empower our clients with the tools to communicate successfully through our in person or virtual coaching services.
