I draw inspiration from what neuroscience tells us about how our brains and nervous systems are wired and how they can adapt. I enjoy supporting executive coaching clients to deepen and leverage this awareness to create lasting change for you and for your organisation.
COMMON COACHING TOPICS
Every executive coaching client is different, but here are some of the common topics they bring to the table:
Stepping away from the operational and into the strategic
Nurturing a healthy team and organisational culture
Leading change and transition
Talking less, listening more
Navigating complexity and conflict
Proactively managing staff accountability and performance
Becoming a confident speaker, presenter or media spokesperson
Career development and succession planning
Strengthening personal and leadership resilience
Fostering innovation and disrupting black and white thinking
Josef has helped me to develop both strategic thinking and management best practice especially as I manage staff who have extensive experience leading global teams around the world. Josef asks great questions and helps me think outside the box. He is intuitive, collaborative and kind and he doesn’t give you the answers but asks the right questions so that you can get to the answers yourself.
I found our sessions extremely energising and motivating; they helped me clarify my priorities and thinking. Coaching has really changed the way I work – it’s helped me be more thoughtful, strategic and confident and it’s given me tools that I can use when I hit roadblocks. Josef coaches with calmness, curiosity and real care and it feels like a partnership. It really was one of the most empowering experiences and I’m grateful to have worked with Josef when I really needed it.
Josef helped me manage the expectations of my role and what it meant to be an executive in difficult times, forging my own executive identity. He challenged me on my blind spots and helped me to get out of my comfort zone. He has a terrific sense of humour, I feel incredibly comfortable sharing with him the trickiest, thorniest, most vulnerable situations in my professional life.
