'Never stay up on the barren heights of cleverness, but come down into the green valleys of silliness.'
- Ludwig Wittgenstein
Business, at some stage, has already or will flummox us, such is the infusion of newer minds and aspiration. Cleverness is a transient phenomenon. Very few firms are ‘all weather firms’.
OUR COACHABILITY THEREFORE HELPS OUR REDISCOVERABILITY. LET US GIVE THE LEADING MIND, CONSIDERED ATTENTION
WHAT DO ORGANIZATIONS AGONIZE OVER ?
And how do we surmount them?
Organizations agonize over internal obstacles such as Leadership vacuum, derailment, follower resistance, decision rigor mortis, despotism, risk shirk, evasive approach, communication reticence, team incoherence etc. as well as extraneous developments like disruptive competitive innovation, shrinking globe introducing international players in the same terrain, political & economic drag, technological swerve and myriad other challenges.
To surmount these challenges, the first step is not just to institute a great leadership team, this is an unalterable given, rather the focus must be towards equipping these commissioned leaders with an ADAPTIVE MINDSET that makes them sense and anticipate the developments in the terrain which in turn enables them to abstract vision and configure direction from it. Leadership ‘NURTURE & TEND’ as an attitude must therefore brew strongest in every organisation’s ‘NEEDS REPERTOIRE'.
ATTEMPTS TO INTERCEPT AND SURMOUNT THESE CHALLENGES, RACK UP FRAMEWORKS TO REVISIT THE SELF, STYLES, ATTITUDES AND RISK DISPOSITION.
Our coaching adopts the phenomenological mode of investigation as a thematic structure.
UNDERSTANDING THE APPERCEPTIVE MAKEUP OF THE LEADER WOULD BE OUR PRIME MOVER.
Leadership in organizations mostly take on a format indigenously created, practiced and improvised either by the firm, or devised by each new leader at the helm or based on recommendations from strategic consultants. Leaders have a predisposition to a certain style, traits and attributes and over time this style becomes ubiquitous regardless of its efficacy.
AS THE COMPETITIVE TERRAIN SWIFTLY CHANGES AND CHALLENGES ACCELERATE, LEADERS NEED TO STEP OUT OF THEIR ARENA, SELF-EVALUATE THEMSELVES, INTROSPECT AND RETOOL THEMSELVES.
LEADERSHIP COACHING OFFERS THIS CONDUIT
Organizations with ambition and steadfast resolve in order to attain outstanding performance from their leadership team have introduced coaching into their repertory. The statistics associated with coaching, results accrued and the behavioural changes it has induced are most reassuring and supportive to perceive.

THE FAQ’S (BELOW), PRESENT OUR INTENT, METHOD & AUTHENTICITY WHICH, WE BELIEVE, WILL BRING YOU CLOSER TO YOU BESTOWING YOUR TRUST UPON US.
Of the assorted training & development tools/ concepts as well as extraneous intervention available today, coaching is by far the most strapping, dominant and effective communication strategy experienced by leaders.
Coaching impels the mind to seek for options & solutions, bring pending decisions stored at the mind’s ambit into the mind’s core and adopt a reflective style amongst many other benefits.

LEADERSHIP BY DESIGN &
NOT BY CHANCE
ALWAYS COACHED, MANIFEST & READY OUT THERE
Leading is an increasingly interdisciplinary aspect that envelops intuiting, sensing, thinking, feeling, decision making, tasking, inspiring, communicating and so forth. It calls for clarity in own mind, command over cognitive processes, functional understanding of management requisites (planning, finance, market place requisites, regulatory etc.) as well as a robust understanding of the followers mind, their quirks, obsessions and their incitements.
GREAT LEADERSHIP PROVIDES DIRECTION, INSPIRES PEOPLE, ENVISIONS AND ACCOMPLISHES GROWTH CONTINUUM FOR THE FIRM IN AN EVER CHANGING COMBATIVE BUSINESS TERRAIN. LEADER’S ROBUSTNESS IS REASSURING FOR THE FOLLOWERS WHO CAN THEN MOVE FORWARDS IN CONSONANCE.
