High expectations are usually placed on one-on-one executive coaching processes. Within a predefined time frame, behavioral patterns that have become ineffective should be identified and changed. However, these behavioral patterns have often been active for many years or even decades and have been careful forged and cultivated. It is therefore too easy to pretend to unlearn this in a few sessions.
From our experience it is important to look beyond the logic of simply stating 'less X' and (thus) 'more Y' behavior. We therefore start by investigating why it has been safe or functional up to now not to engage in 'more Y' behaviour. In addition to this in-depth view - which goes beyond mere symptom behaviour - we also opt for a broader approach. We open up the individual's perspective by actively involving direct stakeholders as representatives of the context in which the coachee wants to develop new behaviour. By adopting this approach in breadth and depth at the same time, we significantly increase the chances of success in fostering lasting change.
