Patricia Hirsch interviews Doug Gfeller, MCC. Listen to Doug as he describes the challenges and methods that he uses in coaching in the C Suite. Doug’s method involves coaching three unique clients. The first is the CEO, the second is the CEO’s direct reports and the third is the 800-pound gorilla that shows up in the management meetings for these individuals. Once the Board Room door is closed the individuals’ shift and the group dynamics and communications styles of the individuals shift. This requires coaching of them as a groups in addition to coaching them individually. While the coaching issues at this level are not unique for business coaching, the stress level, expectations and deadlines are truly unique and need to be acknowledged in the coaching.
