Taking Your Team’s Performance to the Next Level

Setting the “tone from the top” is more than a cliché, or at least it should be.

For the team-oriented executive, the behavioral example they set will have a cascading effect on their team and the business as a whole. And while much of the emphasis of executive coaching focuses on the individual, it does so intentionally. Effective coaching transforms the executive so that they, in turn, are equipped to transform their team’s performance and the companies they lead.

The tone of the leader drives organizational culture, which drives team performance, which drives the excellence that produces desired results. Achieving individual transformation through executive coaching delivers the greatest impact because as an executive, you are in position to have broader influence through your behavior and decision-making.

In our previous Insights, we discussed what makes Transcend executive coaching unique. In this article, we’ll speak to how our approach translates from your personal and professional development to inspiring your team towards next level growth.

To honestly assess a person’s ability to lead others, look no further than to what that person does day to day to lead themselves.

Leaders are most successful when they operate with precise clarity and maximum intentionality of their mindsets and behaviors. Transcend works with you to determine where you are spending your time, thoughts, and attention to identify the most critical actions that will elevate your productivity and leadership. This identification enables you to be a catalyst of change for your team prompting development of team leaders, increased team alignment, and creation of compelling vision that sets the foundation for high-performing teamwork.

At Transcend, we call this Enterprise-Level Leadership, and it transforms the business – beginning with you.

Trickle Down Leadership: Why Executive Coaching Shifts Team Performance

Let’s look at four ways executive coaching elevates team-oriented leadership and performance:

REFOCUSES EFFORTS

Optimizing your team impact begins with refocusing your efforts. Too often, executives reach beyond their scope of influence and control resulting in misappropriated talent, energy, and resources. Transcend assists with the selection of the most critical executive actions for which you are responsible, narrowing your scope to accelerate business performance and free up energy to drive better results. The well-coached executive raises the bar of team performance by bringing clarity and purpose to goals, initiatives, and meetings which allows for fuller team engagement.

ELIMINATES DISTRACTIONS

Our habits, comfort zones, and fallback behaviors that have defined us in the past, may not serve us well in our future. Your time and efforts are valuable as are your teams. Executive coaching helps you thoughtfully assess how you currently use your time to set the stage for future decision-making. Even our greatest intentions can limit our impact if they detract from our strategic purpose. Honing your focus to your core responsibilities is vital to your future success but is only half of the equation. Completing that equation means acknowledging what must be let go and clarity of what is needed to improve team performance.

CREATES CLEAR VISION

Successful leaders define a clear strategic plan aimed toward the ideal state of the business. Setting a clear vision inspires loyalty to the company mission, brings clarity to the organization’s decision-making and encourages alignment across the enterprise while inspiring team unity for the road ahead. Engaging your team in this manner ensures their development, accountability, and cross-collaboration.

DRIVES ACCOUNTABILITY

Accountability is more than ensuring your team does their job, it’s leading by example and holding yourself accountable. Effective executive coaches hold their clients accountable for the transformation they are seeking because that personal transformation has a cascading effect on the teams they lead as well as the executive’s peers. When a leader demonstrates performance transformation, the people around them are empowered and encouraged to follow suit. Transcend partners with executive leaders because of the broader, positive impact these leaders have on their teams and the enterprise.
