A strong case for senior managers as internal mentors
executive-coaches.net is more than coaching, it is also a platform for senior managers who want to develop mentoring skills. This is the topic of our Great Wall Seminars series.
Mentoring has a set of critical skills common with executive coaching, but differ from executive coaching with deeper consideration for strategies, resources, systems and leadership culture. The two areas can match perfectly in a common framework: As a senior manager you are an expert in your industry and specialty. Executive coaches have similarly developed expertise in identifying cultural beliefs that help or hinder strategic growth, and they can help correct unhelpful behaviours, develop critical skills and help your adepts increase their leadership capacity much faster than by traditional methods.
Our platform is particularly well suited to connect mentoring with executive coaching, and makes sure that such programs create strategic value. All of our programs are using the Strategic Focus model, a core model in the curriculum at Edinburgh Business School developed by Emeritus Professor Alex Roberts. EBS has 15.000+ alumni and is the world's second largest distance MBA provider.
With Strategic Focus, executive coaches and senior managers who mentor will have a common framework to accelerate leadership development. As a senior manager you can develop better change projects and a consistent framework to specify and control what needs to be done. Our vision for executive-coaches.net: Great futures.
