At BluEra we pride ourselves on finding and keeping top talent. This means when we search for a leader, we find one that fits your organization’s culture, your values and is ready for the “Now and the New”. As we evolve, awaken, and transform, we can support the evolution of our clients more rigorously. BluEra is excited to announce our Coaching practice for Executives and Leaders. We are already working with clients who want to accelerate their growth & development as they evolve themselves and transform their teams.
Peter Senge once said “There is no organizational transformation, only individual transformation, individual learning”. As part of our Awakened Team Cycle, we believe work on the individual, relationships within the team, and the team, leads to the fullest potential of the company to emerge. BluEra’s Coaching practice is committed to supporting the development and learning of leaders who want to build, evolve and transform themselves to support their organization’s needs for today and the future. Our focus is on learning agility.
A key time in your organization’s life, when Executives and Leaders truly set the stage for success, is the onboarding process – yours and your key leaders. Research suggests 30% – 50% of new Executive hires are not effective or leave after 18 months. Mercer Delta Organizational Consulting produced an article “Executive Onboarding – Research Summary of Effective Practices” and they found the following:
- Executive Onboarding should help executives understand the organizational context and performance expectations; and,
- Shorten the learning curve to enable them to perform to their full potential.
Two fundamental mistakes are referenced that result in a lack of success:
- Organizational mistake – “We have hired a senior person. They should be able to figure it out on their own.”
- Executives mistake – “I am a smart guy. I need to prove myself and make my mark as soon as possible.”
These issues are at play for internal promotions and transfers as well and the roles of the Manager, Executive, and other support groups (like HR) need to be clear and transparent.
A one-on-one coaching relationship provides the necessary challenge and focus to accelerate your development at this time and support the shift that is required in your new situation, whether that be building relationships, effectively understanding the strategy and key expectations, building the team, monitoring performance etc. It’s all about you individually shifting your perspectives and behaviours for a new role. It is not for the faint of heart and it is well worth the investment in you. Let us help you awaken what is possible for yourself, your relationships, and your organization.
