Businesses are constantly in transition—adopting technology, adjusting to changes in their industry, and evolving to meet the needs of their customers. In that dynamic environment, there’s little time to reflect on management structure and transition strategy.
Proactive organizations invest in executive coaching to address challenges that are impeding growth or preventing them from reaching their potential. An effective coach develops communication strategies to help build influence and inspire change, and stops leaders from getting in the way of their own success.
Deeley Insurance Group began its journey six years ago when the agency partnered with Inesse Consulting. The Deeley team was in the midst of a multi-year rebrand and transition to the next generation. They invested in coaching for their leadership team and all of their managers. From providing a 12-month leadership development program to ongoing one-on-one coaching, the team recognizes that personal and professional development creates a culture of collaboration and camaraderie.
Here is how executive coaching helped Deeley unlock its potential:
Business moves fast and leaders often make decisions on the fly. But with leadership coaching, managers learn to be more thoughtful and intentional in their approach to problem solving. They press the pause button and consider whether a decision aligns with their strategic vision.
To tap into the full potential of your team, first learn their strengths. Place each person in a role where they can excel. Leveraging strengths improves productivity, and people are happier when they are empowered in positions where they can succeed.
Be the Push.
At Deeley, management works with every employee to develop a specific list of goals, and leaders push to get results. But there’s an art to knowing when and how to push and the type of support each person requires to succeed. Back your team with the resources they need to thrive. Everyone grows together and sometimes fails together. But this means everyone learns together.
What’s Your Plan?
When Deeley Insurance Group began working with Inesse Consulting, their organization was embarking on a transition to the next generation of leadership and a rebranding of the agency. They were finding their voice, and it was a strong one. But as in any business, there were challenges and opportunities that had to be met in order for the agency to gain clarity and focus its energy.
The only way we can grow is by being honest with ourselves about where we are failing and where we feel insecure. Through vulnerability, we grow. And that is why finding a coach who you feel safe with is so important. You want a coach who will help crack you open a little bit and say, “You already have this. You just gave yourself the answer.” Our job at Inesse Consulting is to clear the fog so you can tap into that greatness.
