Executive Coaching

Executive coaching of a prospective managing director.

How we helped to eliminate toxic leadership tendency in the future

leader of a company.

Our client is one of world’s largest offshore support company. They had identified an internal candidate to take over the role of the managing director. However, his past performance appraisals and 360 degree feedback indicated that he needed to improve upon his aggressive attitude and acidic behaviour. Further, as a potential candidate, he needed to work upon and prove his ability to influence others as well as sustain diplomatic cross broader collaboration of various units.

One choice was to assign an internal mentor for the future managing director. However, even after six months of the mentorship programme, it did not prove to be impactful. So the management decided to hire an external coach to groom him more intensely through a customised executive coaching programme.

The candidate was offered a choice of three coaches and he chose the one from Comaea Consulting. 12 sessions over 12 months helped him not only to improve upon the identified gap areas but also his work life balance. Within months, that inherent negativity which was so characteristic of him, showed a marked decline in his attitude and behaviour; even his family life improved for the better. Four months further down the line, the management found him ready to take on the role, in which he successfully transitioned. Currently, he is sustaining the role and delivering results that meet and exceed the company’s goals.
