Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is a course consisting of individual conversations, which enable leaders and leadership talents to manage current challenges – both within leadership and long-term development.

Executive Coaching is valuable when you are facing:

  • A new position within management
  • Great changes
  • Implementation of strategy
  • Difficulties in collaboration

As an Executive Coach, it is my task to find my clients’ optimal zone of best practice development and performance. I help my clients achieve their goals. However, my assignment is also to support my clients in terms of acting responsibly and respectfully, showing human vulnerability, authority, and maturity.

My counselling focuses on the interface between the individual performance and the performance of the team. I draw on my knowledge of the experiences of military units in battle, combined with the latest research in neuropsychology, leadership, and social psychology. I concluded my PhD with a research semester at Stanford University, CA. Since then, I have returned once a year to catch up with the most recent research, gaining new inspiration and ideas for my coaching clients.

What is coaching?

A systematic method for development

Executive Coaching consists of a series of conversations and psychological tests. Executive Coaching enables my clients to make the most of their abilities or situation, while also functioning at the highest level of efficiency in their work-life – both short-term and long-term. Coaching focuses on finding the best solutions for the future. I help clients understand their own resources and implications of certain behaviors, thereby developing solutions to the challenges the clients are working on. I help the clients look at the task from different angles and explore various paths to action – rather than finding reasons for the situation or placing responsibility.

Tailored for the role as leader

In Executive Coaching the method is adjusted to issues associated with the leadership role. The coaching sessions focus on domains such as power and authority, identity and conflict management, as well as clout and the creation of results. In contrast to ordinary coaching or therapies, Executive Coaching not only has the purpose of creating individual development. It also leads to improved commercial performance. The method consists of a set number of conversations (sessions) combined with tests and other forms of data-collection. In the process I identify concrete personal and professional strengths and developmental needs in order to support decision-making, problem-solving, and acting.

Customized to the precise needs of the client

No two coachings are the same. Each individual Executive Coaching is tailored to the leader’s specific personality and the target areas where he/she wants to improve performance. I have developed a methodology combining research, interviews, sessions and interactions that allow leaders to work on strengths and blind spots. The process empowers them to grow effectively and with authenticity.

Bases on tests

I use tests in the main part of the processes to validate the profile of the individual leader.

I am certified in a wide range of psychological personality tests including specific tests and assessments used by the Danish Military, as well as the Emotional Intelligence Test (EQ-I), the 360-Leadership Effectiveness Analysis (MRG), the Hogan Assessment System personality test for both individuals and groups and lastly the NEO-PI-R personality test for business.
