The value of Business and Leadership Coaching
Working with CEOs, business leaders, and executive teams to find their purpose, drive and “flow” in their business is one of the most effective ways of achieving ultimate performance today. Because it is specifically geared to the goals and objectives of the business, aligning individual goals to your business goals creates a very powerful driver for success. Combined with our leadership development programmes, that success can then grow rapidly through empowerment.
Our holistic approach to working one-to-one with our clients results in a mix of executive coaching, mentoring, consultancy and personal development that one would normally have to source separately, at a high cost of time and money. Our remit is to focus on YOU. This mix is a toolbox that can be utilised to suit your particular needs and brought in according to the programme. Here’s how it works for one of our clients;
Our workshops aim to elicit leadership though processes that enable the participants to understand the difference between leadership and management. We introduce a leadership ‘toolkit’ that emphasises the traits that leaders must develop in order to succeed.
We show that leadership is not only demonstrated in charisma and great oration, but different styles of leadership are possible and should reflect the individuals character. As a result, we see confidence, expertise and natural talent emerge.
“I felt that my business had grown rapidly but was starting to create problems with my work-life balance. I felt that I needed to work harder and harder to keep up, despite spending more and more money on managers to grow the business. It seemed like I was constantly having to make decisions for them and it got to a point that I was actually considering refusing new growth because I didn’t think we could handle it. Whilst I was concerned that I didn’t have enough time in the day to get help and advice, I realised I needed a more objective viewpoint to help me get out of this situation. It was affecting my whole life.
I called in a business coach who worked on three key areas: Purpose, Personal Wellbeing and Leadership. These three diverse but complimentary areas of growth helped me focus on the things that were really important, find time to take care of myself and help me clear the fog that clouded my mind, and develop my leadership skills to empower my management team to share the load. Surprisingly it wasn’t a long drawn-out process as the guys at Ultimate Performance focused on me directly, with a secondary interest in the business. They knew that I was the best person to solve business problems but I needed to sort myself out first. I now feel that I can take on new opportunities without worrying that I’ll lose out on enjoying life.”
“Super inspired by Julian Azzopardi‘s talk yesterday about leading with purpose. He gave some very interesting insights on the roots of human behavior and actions and how they link with the golden circle, explaining how to use those principles to lead a team to success.”CÉCILIA MZAYEKTimeNinja Founder
“Thanks for a much needed and certainly a very insightful 1.5 days. I really enjoyed trying to live those moments in the Now, blanking my ever curious mind from the onslaught of thoughts that are so pervasive in every waking minute of our lives. I felt that the time we spent together gave me a curiosity to learn more about this state of flow and how to harness it in my everyday life and work. Keep up the great work and there will definitely be a part 2 to this.”ANDREW MANGIONEC English Malta Executive Chairman

“Investing in people is a priority for us at ICON. More than ever, we’re seeing true, tangible value by broadening team members’ horizons at every level. Interns gaining new skills via shadowing experiences, ITIL training for all developers and customer-facing team members, and company-wide motivational speeches like the inspirational Nathan Farrugia and his FIRE method, the boost in morale and motivation makes us all stronger. It’s all well and good to push your team to reach their targets, but you can’t expect a team to deliver true value if you’re not investing in them.”IAN CASTILLOIcon Malta Managing Director
“I wanted to thank you for the help and guidance you gave my team and I during 2018. We truly managed to reach what we thought was unreachable from a change management perspective. We also had a record turnover, with a 20% increase over the prior year and the OKRs worked wonders in helping us achieve that!”THOMAS ZAMMITElektra Ltd. CEO
