The Phelps’ Difference:
Deeply Experienced Coaching Resources

Because of our 30-year history of assessing senior-level individuals, the Phelps Executive Coaching process contributes deep insight into what success looks like and he kinds of behaviour most relevant to achieving success. Typically, we work closely with you for a 6 to 12-month period, meeting monthly in a safe, confidential setting that is conducive to openness. 

What’s different about our coaching process is that we are known for our holistic processes in working with leaders to identify and enhance performance as well as developmental areas of leadership. We often find that leaders require support in both areas to varying degrees. We ensure that everyone we coach receives the benefit of both practical and deep expertise in performance coaching as well leadership support to help build confidence and executive presence on the developmental side. 

Our process begins with a thorough intake and assessment process that moves to goal setting and commitment-making. Throughout our time together, coaches provide specific guidance in areas identified by candidates, sponsors and/or 360 feedback reviews. Developing effective measurements and attaining results is at the heart of all we do.

Successful Coaching

Phelps’ services support leaders who are aspiring to greater capabilities. Our goal is to help individuals and teams harness strengths, craft skills and optimize leadership capabilities. We accomplish this in four ways:

  • Reigniting experienced employees who would like to renew their skills
  • Developing high potential employees
  • Supporting subject matter experts who need to become people leaders
  • Creating opportunities for emerging talent to contribute to energy and agility with speed and innovation

Successful coaching is a high impact activity – both for individuals who are enriched by the reflection it affords – and for the organization who invests in it. Our coaching practices have repeatedly demonstrated that organizations who support the coaching and mentoring of team members have happier and more productive workplaces. Decision making becomes more accelerated as it becomes more informed by diverse viewpoints. Problem solving is enhanced by understanding how to more quickly anticipate and adjust, especially when under pressure.

Phelps has a rich resource of coaches and mentors who work with organizations in the public and private sector. Working with our team of professional coaches, leaders are able to maximize their effectiveness and performance through self-awareness of their own areas of strength and development. Coaches help you visualize goals, access your inner strengths as well as tap into what may be holding you back.

Phelps’ coaches have both considerable organizational experience – from strategy and talent management to marketing and finance – as well as direct coaching and mentoring knowledge and practice. They’ve been CEOs, members of the C-Suite and understand the work of leadership. Our coaches understand intuitively what it means to be a high performing leader under pressure because they have lived the responsibility of managing and leading in complex organizations.
