Executive coaching and leadership development in global contexts

4Colours’ customers come from many different businesses in global contexts where the working language mainly is English. We therefore always offer our clients coaching, outplacement coaching and leadership development training and faciliation in both English and Swedish.

Executive coaching and leadership coaching provides one-on-one custom leadership development for senior managers and mid to senior level executives. The reasons for having an executive coach could be different dependent on the needs of the executive and the organisation. It could for example be about having a professional sounding board outside of the company to get new perspectives and constructive feedback, taking on new leadership responsibilities, dealing with complex challenges, motivating and retaining direct reports, getting greater impact when communicating to people or achieving high-performance goals.

We use tools as personal branding, leadership coaching, presentation skills, communication in virtual teams, team development, creative idea development, feedback and assessments, stress management, time management and future strategy. Executive coaching may include a boss-alignment session between the coach, coachee and the supervisor to agree on goals and link to 360 and other assessments. On-site observations such as shadowing may also be included as well as interviewing peers and direct reports to get more extensive feedback on behavioural changes, impact and results.

Our methods and tools for career coaching and outplacement coaching may include CV writing in English/Swedish, updating your LinkedIn profile, personal branding, career planning, networking strategies, inventory of your key competencies, strengths and development areas, analysing the global job market, preparing job interview questions, marketing yourself to global headhunters, interview training and portrait photography for CV and LinkedIn.
