Your executive coaching journey

The executive coaching journey is a transformative process of self-development, designed to enhance leadership skills and accelerate behavior changes in a highly personalized way:

Step 1 – Calibration of needs: The process begins with the calibration of needs, conducted by our coaching excellence team. This involves taking the time to thoroughly understand the coaching objectives, the need for development or transformation, and alignment on success measures.

Step 2 – Identifying your coach: Based on the calibration, we identify the ideal coach or construct the appropriate coaching solution.

Step 3 – Chemistry check: Once a potential coach has been identified, we arrange calls for the executive and coach(es) to evaluate their compatibility. In the case of teams, the chemistry check is conducted at the team level.

Step 4 – Coaching journey: Throughout this journey, follow-ups and feedback are integral components, ensuring that progress is being made towards achieving the set objectives.

IMD’s coaching approach is designed to truly personalize learning, anchor and embed knowledge, accelerate performance and foster an environment of continuous learning and adaptation.

Extraordinary. The individual coaching was really tailored to my personal needs. The coach was outstanding and was able to strike just the right balance between emotional and rational/business aspects. I was guided in my own realization of certain behaviors that i had and still have. This will help me in understanding my future choices.
