This month we are doing a feature on Business Coaches

Melbourne is, along with Sydney, Australia’s leading commerce and business centres. We have produced some of the world’s best businessmen, including Rupert Murdoch (whatever you may think of him).

There is a strong culture of business and executive coaching in corporate Australia and this month we are going to review a few of the leading coaching firms. In our review we will look to tell you about what’s unique in their approaches, what kinds of training they offer and why you might want to check them out.

Executive Coaching – Gwyder Consulting Group

Gwyder Consulting is run by Kerry Little. He is an accredited coach with the Marshall Goldsmith Global Executive Coaching Organisation. Gwyder specialise in a form of executive coaching called behavioural coaching. Which features the Stake Holder Centred Leadership methodology made famous by New York Times bestselling author, Marshall Goldsmith.

In fact the effectiveness of Stakeholder Centred Coaching was categorically proven when a comprehensive study among 11,000 business leaders in 8 multinational companies on 4 continents concluded that 95% of leaders who consistently applied Stakeholder Centred Coaching measurably improved their leadership effectiveness.

Kerry Little recently released a free executive coaching report designed to introduce business leaders to some of the key distinctions that underpin Stakeholder Centred Coaching.

Speaking at the launch, Little said “The reason Stakeholder Centred Coaching works is because the focus is on identifying and measuring the effects a person’s leadership style has on the performance of their people, which is the single most critical influencing effect a leader can have on productivity. The key is shifting the focus onto the skills of leadership, rather than the skills of the leader himself.”

“The free online course I’m launching today introduces executives to this paradigm shift, via an easy to implement online program that they can complete in a relatively small amount of time, I’m talking as little as 20 to 40 minutes a week, over just three weeks” said Mr Little.

“This makes trying behavioural coaching a ‘no brainer’ because the time investment is so small, and there’s no cost, so there’s no barrier!”

At the end of the program participants get a comprehensive debrief to help them identify the key things they learned, and how they can easily implement them and become a more effective leader.
