Engaging the Individual, Team and Organization
Executive coaching means different things to different people. At DBM, executive coaching means shortening executives’ time-to-competence in today’s increasingly demanding leadership roles and focuses unwaveringly on business performance. DBM’s Executive Coaching is a comprehensive solution delivered by experienced peer-level coaches who, like your executives, are accountable for achieving business results. By employing a consistent yet flexible four-step coaching methodology, DBM coaches help coachees to understand how their behavior and the perception of their behavior impact the business, and to develop an action plan for making meaningful change. High-performing and emerging talent each face significant pressures to deliver results, and DBM’s executive coaches provide support to cultivate relationships with key stakeholders, re-direct strengths and adopt new behaviors in order to step up to the demands of dynamic and changing markets.
DBM delivers results in the following seven coaching situations:
- High-Potential Coaching to build a ready pipeline of talent.
- Individual Performance Coaching to enable top talent to achieve mission-critical objectives.
- Onboarding Coaching to accelerate early traction and avoid failure of an internal transfer or external hire.
- Team Coaching to leverage individual and collective leadership strengths.
- Expatriate Coaching to prepare and support executives to assimilate into foreign cultures and to enhance performance.
- Career Coaching to guide emerging talent to take charge of planning their own careers in alignment with the organization and its expectations.
- Transition Coaching - to enable a leader who is successfully performing in one role takes on another role with different responsibilities (role-to-role transitions).
DBM supports organizations in the design and implementation of custom Mentoring Programs. Our proven approach, methods and tools help to create the right conditions for engagement, knowledge sharing and self-development to occur. Central to the success of DBM’s mentoring programs is a comprehensive communications plan that sets clear expectations and prepares all stakeholders to achieve valued results.
In times of organizational change, implementing a comprehensive Redeployment plan can be essential to retaining mission critical talent. DBM supports organizations and individuals to explore and leverage new internal avenues for career development and contribution based on personal strengths and the strategic needs of the organization. Redeployment initiatives are implemented under a variety of circumstances, such as project terminations, team demobilizations, and plant or facility closings.
Accelerating Role Transition (ART)
Following significant organizational change, leaders must adapt quickly to a new reality and to new roles. DBM’s Accelerating Role Transition (ART) is a structured process that allows leaders to speed up the assimilation process and to perform effectively in a new context.
As organizations flatten their structures, there is an increasing dependence on the ability of newly formed teams and workgroups to achieve financial results. Team Contracting synchronizes expectations and commitments, drives ownership and removes barriers to achievement. By establishing an explicit agreement between two or more individuals when mission-critical goals are at stake, DBM Team Contracting provides more immediate business results at less cost than traditional leadership development programs, thus delivering a higher ROI for the organization.
Following any significant change, organizations often face the daunting challenge of how to re-engage their talent to achieve higher performance levels. Through an Employee Alignment process, DBM supports organizations even before the change event occurs to execute a comprehensive transition process that guarantees business continuity and improvement in the results achieved.
The success of a merger or acquisition relies on the ability to achieve true cultural integration. How does one integrate assumptions, values and beliefs? What steps facilitate the ability for well-established behavior patterns to change? DBM’s Cultural Integration Consulting process acknowledges that integration is a group learning process that requires awareness, reflection, dialogue and action. Our methods and tools act as a catalyst for this learning process.
