Executive Coaching

Standing on the foundation that people are the experts in their lives and that they have the inner capacity to change, grow and create what they want, coaching supports the creation of sustainable change through increased awareness and building on own strengths and resources.

When is Coaching useful for you?

When...

  • you feel stuck in your current role and want to plan next moves
  • you are in a dilemma and want clarity about your next step
  • you need to survive a toxic boss
  • you just got promoted to a new role and is "uncharted territory"
  • you are not getting promoted
  • you want to develop your leadership presence

 

Readiness Check

Before you embark on any coaching relationship take a moment to check with yourself following this simple Formula of Change. 

Reflect on your coaching goal and ask yourself the following questions:  

  • How much is it a coaching goal that I want vs. one that I have to make?
  • In what ways is this important for me
  • How much control do I have over it?
  • How ready am I to start working on this coaching goal? 

Finally, in order for the effort you put to change makes sense, the end resulting Benefits you will get from the change need be GREATER than the Cost

It is called Formula because it works like one. If one of the multipliers is 0, then chances of change through coaching are 0 and thus coaching is not the right approach.

Career Turning Points

Olympia has been my coach in two period of times in my career. Both periods were at a turning point. She is very intelligent, very egalitarian, with vast experience in diverse companies and sharp business acumen. Her exceptional ability to combine excellent coaching skills with deep knowledge of business organizations makes her a unique coach. Her approach, passion for people and high impact change-including program has awaken the dormant potential of myself. She can guide you, ask the super right questions and drive you to the correct paths of finding answers. She knows when to get out of the way and let you experience and solve things at your own pace.

Transition from Finance to Sales

I worked with Olympia during my transition from a Finance to Commercial role and I have to say that it was an excellent experience that helped me to address the challenges of the time and definitely gave me a wider perspective towards business and most importantly people interactions. It has been the combination of tools that Olympia uses and forward thinking discussions that helped me understand how to become a better professional and people manager. The impact of my coaching experience with Olympia, has been so evident in the people around me that whenever I face a challenge, they would look back to the days with Olympia...

Challenging Career Period

I had the opportunity to work with Olympia for a significant number of coaching sessions during a challenging period of my career. Olympia possesses a unique style, a balanced blend of professional and friendly approach which enabled me to extract several useful conclusions about my leadership strengths and how these could be used for stepping forward my personal development and thus achieving my personal targets.

Her methodology helped me significantly in focusing on the solutions and not the problem itself, identifying the alternatives and selecting the ones that fit best my personal style and behavioural characteristics. But more importantly, Olympia is a person to whom I have trusted several thoughts and considerations - life and business related - and feel that she is always there to listen.
