Why We All Need Executive Leadership Coaching

Why We All Need Executive Leadership Coaching

The Executive Coaching Magazine, September 12 2017

So, what is executive leadership coaching exactly?  “Executive coaches act as coach, educator, mentor, guide, confidant, and challenger to those that carry the burden of executive level leadership, the c-level executives as well as their direct reports,” says Jelmer Dijkhuizen, leadership and team consultant for Legacy Consultancy of The Netherlands. The goal is “personal development of the executive.”

Whether one-on-one or as a team, coaching typically takes weeks, months or, in some cases, even years. ...

Verschillen CVI en DiSC verklaard

Posted by:

We krijgen met grote regelmaat de opmerking te horen: “Ja, maar wij hebben al de DiSC! Wij hebben de CVI niet nodig!” De vraag is natuurlijk: klopt deze aanname? De verschillen tussen de verschillende assessments zijn niet altijd meteen duidelijk. Daarom hebben mijn collega en ik de verschillen eens duidelijk op een rijtje gezet. En wat blijkt? De CVI is veel veelzijdiger dan de DiSC. Oh, zeker, de DiSC heeft zeker waarde in het op korte termijn optimaliseren van een ...

Wat is er fout gegaan?

Wat is er fout gegaan?

Onlangs kwam er een nieuw Gallup rapport uit: The State of the Global Workplace*.

In dat rapport stonden ronduit schokkende cijfers over de arbeidsbetrokkenheid wereldwijd.

In de V.S. zijn gemiddeld slecht 3 op de 10 werknemers werkelijk bevlogen voor hun werk. Dat vond ik redelijk schokkende cijfers! Maar toen las ik verder en bladerde door naar de cijfers voor Europa op bladzijde 93 …en mijn mond viel open! Dit kon toch niet waar zijn?! In Nederland is het percentage van werkelijk bevlogen medewerkers slechts ...

What NOT to do when Managing Poor Performance

What NOT to do when Managing Poor Performance

Managing workers is a complicated task, requiring appropriate application of interpersonal and strategic skills. Business success depends on involving employees in company objectives, so they’re motivated to focus on good performance. Poor worker performance is an outcome of:

  • selecting the wrong employees for particular jobs,
  • using inappropriate management methods to direct employees efforts, and
  • relying on these methods to generate improved performance.

What NOT to Do When Managing Poor Performance

Management is perhaps more accountable than employees for poor workplace performance because it decides ...

Talentmanagement

Posted by:

Benut persoonlijke drijfveren en talenten in uw organisatie!

Veel talentvolle professionals kunnen hun ei niet binnen hun werk kwijt en benutten daarom hun kwaliteiten in hun vrije tijd waardoor veel potentieel en kostbare energie verloren gaan. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan de verveelde boekhouder die in het weekend zijn organisatorisch talent inzet ten dienste van de plaatselijke sportclub of de gestreste manager die in zijn schaarse vrije tijd opgaat in zijn creatieve geest bij het uitdenken van innovatieve oplossingen of het scheppen van kunstwerken.

Dit ...

How do I retain top talent?

Few things in business are as costly and disruptive as unexpected talent departures. With all the emphasis on leadership development, I always find it interesting so many companies seem to struggle with being able to retain their top talent. In today’s post, I’ll share some research, observations, and insights on how to stop the talent door from revolving.

Ask any CEO (as I oftentimes do in my Taylor Protocols Consultancy practice) if they have a process for retaining and developing talent ...

Ondernemer, ontsla uzelf!

Ondernemer, ontsla uzelf!

Wanneer ondernemers net beginnen, zijn ze overal bij betrokken; de lopende zaken, de boekhouding, acquisitie en het plegen van verkooptelefoontjes. Zodra een bedrijf echter begint te groeien doet een bedrijfseigenaar er goed aan zichzelf te ontslaan van alle verschillende taken. De KvK had een aantal jaren geleden een cursus “hoe wordt ik een duizendpoot?” in haar cursusaanbod. Wanneer je echter alles zelf wil doen doe je alles half en loop je helemaal leeg. Het uit handen geven van kritische taken ...

Are you living on purpose?

Are you living on purpose?

2013 is here! Have you made your New-Years resolutions yet? Eating less, quit smoking, everyone wants to make a change in their lives once in a while. But why are so few people really able to make changes? I believe most people are simply meandering along, letting life “happen” to them… 99% of the world lives life from day to day, trying to “get by” trying to figure out the next best move, doing their best to adjust as life ...

High competence vs. Cultural fit

High competence vs. Cultural fit

The first people you hire in your startup company are critical to the company’s success. So it’s easy to say that you need to hire the “absolute best people you can find.” But what does this actually mean?

Take two different spectrums – (1) competence and (2) cultural fit. Imagine that you have a spectrum for each person — from low to high.

Recruiting talent. Most companies obviously will not hire someone who is low on both competence and cultural fit. They ...

Rags to Riches

Rags to Riches

His annual earnings were 480 million dollars. And guess what? That was over 100 years ago. That means his annual check today would be $297 billion. That’s billion with a “b.” Not bad for a year’s work. And better than that, at the time of his death he left $350 million to charity.

How did this happen? Was he born into wealth, royalty, a family of incredible influence? Was his name Sinterklaas or Santa?

No, this son ...

The human factor

The human factor

We live in an amazing era of technology-driven transformation that’s redefining how we sell, market, communicate, collaborate, innovate, train, and educate—all in an amazingly short period of time. With that said, though, we don’t want to lose sight of the fact that the future is a human future. And when it comes to humans, it’s all about relationships at a deeper level than just knowing their name and trust. If you don’t have trust, you don’t have a relationship.

But trust ...
