Coaching

Growth as a leader demands movement through a lot of difficult places.

The job of a leader is challenging because it requires understanding a vast variety of forces—from the competitive landscape to the complexity of human behavior.

BGC provides coaching to senior leaders to help them confront, understand, and resolve the constant flow of challenges brought to them by diverse situations and personalities. Working in a confidential environment, we strive to help our clients understand root causes, evaluate possible solutions, and push through personal and professional barriers to deliver on the best solutions for the company.

Some examples of our work

  • Online Community Company: BGC worked with individual executives of the senior leadership team to plan for and execute responsibilities of new roles, work successfully with peers and cross-functionalized teams, and deal with the politics of the parent company.
  • Engineering Firm: BGC helped the managing principial to negotiate the successful departure of two senior principals, to restructure the firm along new principles of leadership, and to develop up-and-coming leaders.
  • Financial Services Company: BGC worked with COO to obtain buy-in for new company vision arising from a merger, to rebuild trust between acquired and acquirer companies, develop team management skills, and resolve operational issues in alignment with strategic vision.

Coaching planning plays a key role in:

  • Leadership Development
  • Succession
  • Executive Team Alignment
  • Communication
