Human Mirror’s Executive coaching is designed to help facilitate professional and personal development in order to promote individual growth, improved performance and contentment.
Executive coaches work their clients towards specific professional goals. These include career transition, interpersonal and professional communication, performance management, organizational effectiveness, managing career and personal changes, developing executive presence, enhancing strategic thinking, dealing effectively with conflict, and building an effective team within an organization.
Most important, the coach attempts to stimulate the client’s self-awareness and self-discovery by posing powerful questions and/or assigning homework that may take the form of “thought experiments” with the coaching tools and/or “field experiments” which are actions to try in the real world that may result in experiential learning and development of new approaches to situations.
Coaches need to have a strong understanding of individual differences in a work place as well as the ability to adapt their coaching style or strategies. It is suggested that those coaches who are unable to acknowledge these differences will do more harm than good. Many executive coaches have a specific area of expertise. It is vital that the Coach is matched according to the Coachee’s goals as well as their motivational needs and cultural differences. The right match is extremely important.
Coaching is a relatively new industry that began in the United States during the 1980s and which has expanded to a world-wide status. It has become extremely popular due to the results attained, more specifically a 2001 Manchester study of 100 executives from Fortune1000 companies found that the average ROI (return on investment) was 5.7 times the initial investment in a typical executive coaching assignment.

“I was down in the dumps by the end of 2010. At the end of an article in a woman’s magazine on “balancing your life” there was reference to a life coach (something unfamiliar to me at that stage). I did some research during the December holiday’s, interviewed a number of life coaches in January and enrolled for 6 sessions with Antoinette.
The main reason for seeking support and advice from Antoinette was around deciding on whether to resign at my current job or not. However, Antoinette didn’t just helped me discovering what I would like to do with my career and where I would like to go, but simultaneously she has managed to uncover and resolve a number of personal issues in my life, my relationship with my husband as well as overall wellbeing. She taught me to be conscious in checking whether I am busy with reality or being caught up in my “own story…”
Some penny drop moments were:
Having Antoinette there, asking the right questions, helped me to discover hidden potential within myself, but even more important helped me to make peace with me and realising that I have ALL what it takes to be a successful, happy person.
