Tough At The Top
An experienced coach and CEO herself, Carole will provide valuable perspective on the challenges and opportunities of the C-Suite - face-to-face, or by phone or email, to fit in with your busy work schedule.
Rank brings responsibility. Not just performing tasks, but initiating them and providing the vision and inspiration for a whole team to reach ambitious targets. It can mean long hours and relentless pressure. It can even induce a sensation of loneliness, when you can't share your feelings without looking weak and out of control and so you end up bottling it up and being incredibly stressed. And it takes resilience to cope - the physical and mental fortitude to manage the daily challenges of an ever-changing corporate landscape.
Those New Boardroom Pressures…
Suddenly they all want a bit of you. And suddenly you’re having to fill multiple roles. The planner who can think round corners. The leader who needs to motivate people going through times of change. The communicator who can impress the media. And in a crisis, you’re the one they’ll all be turning to. It’s a formidable challenge, and you’ll handle it more confidently with a specialist executive coach to signpost the way forward.
…and How Pressure Turns into Stress
New responsibilities can lead to overwork and a poor life/work balance - steadily raising the physical and mental pressure. And when pressure is badly handled, it turns into stress. As an experienced stress management specialist, as well as a coach, Carole is ideally positioned to spot stress symptoms and help you pressure-proof yourself and your team, to enable optimum performance.
It All Starts With Managing Yourself
Promotion can be a satisfying experience. But those multiple responsibilities demand a new outlook in time management - the need to compartmentalize in a systematic way. Switching-off in the middle of a project is not easy but often necessary. Time Management is an integral part of managing pressure and Carole has made a major speciality of it. It’s all part of the ‘new you’, which you can develop successfully under the guidance of the right coach.
Keeping Ahead of the Competition
