Executive Coaching
Executive coachingHow does the WINNERS AT WORK executive coaching programme work?

This is a six month process for managers based on workplace learning and application. The programme is structured around six, one hour coaching sessions over a six month period. The process runs through three distinctive phases:

Phase one (session one)

Identification of the manager’s strengths and opportunities for future growth using a 360-degree feedback methodology that covers the following facets of management and leadership:

  • leadership skills
  • problem solving and decision making
  • team development skills
  • training staff
  • developing trust
  • coaching skills
  • communication skills
  • handling and resolving conflict
  • counselling for performance improvement
  • effective delegation
  • safety

Phase two (sessions two to five)

Ongoing interaction between the coach and the manager, using personal insight, regular monitoring, formulation and execution of action plans, and facilitated feedback to assist in achievement of identified tasks and objectives and consolidation of appropriate behavioural changes.

Phase three (session six)

review of achievements and insights gained throughout the programme and identification of action plans and targets to be achieved in the future.

♦ Additional coaching sessions and enhancement modules can be added to the programme if required.

How is our programme different from others?

The executive coaching programme quite different and a superior human development experience for the distinctions and advantages it has over traditional learning and development approaches.

  • One-to-One Approach

Progress and development of the manager is closely monitored by the coach and reinforced by the workplace mentor.

  • Flexible Delivery

Coaching session content and times are negotiated between the coach and manager.

  • Customised to Suit Needs

Every coaching session is customised specifically to suit the particular needs of the manager.

  • Minimum Disruption

Sessions are often scheduled outside productive business hours and therefore minimises disruptions to the normal flow of work.

  • Results Focused

The real learning for managers takes place between coaching sessions in consultation with their workplace mentor and coach through the implementation of plans of action formulated at the completion of each coaching session.

  • Access to Coach

The manager has unlimited interaction with their coach between sessions for the duration of the six month programme via telephone, email or Skype.

  • Non-Threatening Approach

The manager works closely with their coach whose authoroty is derived from their skills and knowledge rather than a hierarchical position.

  • Value for Money

The innovative approach is designed to maximise workplace behavioural change with a minimum of disruption to normal work practices.

 testimonials“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you. You worked with me and the other Principal musicians at the Queensland Orchestra in 2008. It was a difficult time for me in the orchestra and your assistance was outstanding in dealing with the numerous issues that I was facing it the orchestra. Since that time I moved to Melbourne to take up the Principal Horn position in the Melbourne Symphony and more recently I have moved to Los Angeles to become the Principal Horn of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I feel that implementing many of the skills that you taught have  greatly contributed to my success. I hope that everything is going well for you and I’m very glad to see that you are working with the Melbourne Symphony. Your work is outstanding and I am very grateful for the opportunity to have worked with you.”

Andrew Bain – One of the world’s most accomplished horn players and Principal Horn of the Los Angeles Philharmonic

“Throughout my career, I have never been so positively impacted and so equipped to face leadership as through being coached by Dr Tim Baker. Dr Baker was my executive coach for over a year and provided me with not only the skills, methods and out-of-the box creative ideas to succeed in my leadership roles, his coaching provided me with the confidence to face any leadership situation that may arise whether negative or positive. Dr Baker is prepared to communicate the cold hard facts when change is needed and also has the tenacity and strength in disposition to ” go against the flow” and challenge the norm when it comes to executive leadership.. Dr Bakers’ encouragement to find my strengths and focus on these rather than my weakness was a turning point in my career. The proof of success of the executive coaching I received from Dr Baker is evidenced by the great teams I have worked with since and the comments from colleagues that imply ” I want what he’s having”.. People have asked me what am I doing to succeed and I point them to my coaching from Dr Tim. I highly recommend receiving executive coaching for anyone serious about leadership and if you are fortunate to receive this from Dr Baker, you will be more than successful.“

Andrew Gillan – Program and Project Controls Manager

“I have known Dr Tim Baker for a number of years and have been so impressed with his Coaching and Leadership development expertise that I have kept on hiring him where ever I have worked. Tim get’s to the heart of business culture and works with staff to bring out the very best in their leadership capabilities. Both my leadership skills and career have benefited enormously from his guidance and I would recommend him to anyone seeking to add genuine business leadership skills to their business or with an interest in their employees development.”

Alastair Dawson – Deputy Vice Chancellor (CQ University)

“On behalf of the Bribie Better Business Inc. I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to you for the excellent presentation you gave last night at our monthly Better Business Networking event.

As you are aware, I have been consulting to SME’s for many, many years, and in all that time I have organised and ran networking events, and I have always had the good fortune to attract some outstanding Presenters and Speakers.

I have no hesitation in stating that you are one of the very best that I have encountered. Your understanding of the needs of people, particularly when running a business, and the down-to-earth manner in the way you deliver your presentation is both refreshing and enlightening.

The message that you delivered on Performance Appraisals was packed with ideas and techniques for getting the very best out of your team, and, as a result, generating more prospects, more clients, more sales and more income. Yet you delivered this presentation in such a professional manner that it was explained in a simplistic step-by-step process understood by all.

I would add that I have never seen so many people taking notes as they did during your presentation.

The feedback from the audience, the requests from so many of them for you to return to give another presentation has prompted me to write this letter of gratitude to you, coupled with the request for you to consider returning again, in the near future, to give another presentation, please Tim”.
