Executive Coaching

Over the past several years, executive coaching has proven to be an excellent way to help grow executives, move projects forward, and get things done!

The Nebraska Bankers Association is pleased to announce that we have joined with Paula Pace of The Executive Development Group, based in Lincoln, to offer executive coaching to NBA-member financial institutions.  For the last 15 years, Paula has been coaching, training, and speaking across the United States and Canada.  The majority of her work has been in the Midwest and within the financial sector.  She holds a master’s degree in education and is a Certified Executive Coach. 

What about you?

What would it take to make your best—your very best—even better?  How can you continue to grow or stretch your skills while still meeting your day-to-day responsibilities?

What about your senior staff?

Are they producing at the level required for success?  What about the high-potential employees who will one day step into their shoes?  Are they prepared to lead their own team, manage a department, or contribute at the highest level of the organization?

Why executive coaching?

Executive coaching is the most effective and efficient way to develop talent, solve problems, and meet tomorrow’s challenges.  

Here's what a few of today's top executives have to say about
the power of executive coaching:

"I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities."
—Bob Nardelli, former CEO, Home Depot

"Business coaching is attracting America’s top CEOs because, put simply, business coaching works.  In fact, when asked for a conservative estimate of monetary payoff from the coaching they got . . . managers described an average return of more than $100,000, or about six times what the coaching had cost their companies."
—Fortune Magazine

"Executive coaches are not for the meek.  They’re for people who value unambiguous feedback.  All coaches have one thing in common; it’s that they are ruthlessly results-oriented."
—Fast Company

What is executive coaching?

An executive coach is a development partner.  As an executive, you may have the answers, but difficulties have gotten in the way of finding them.  As a manager, your promotion may have been based on technical skills, and you now find yourself at a loss to lead a team.

Executive coaching is a one-to-one connection.  It is objective and it is personal at the same time.  Through executive coaching, problems are solved, skills grow, and future challenges are met.

Which of the following do you need?

  • Challenge Coaching:  What challenge do you face?  Do you have ideas but no answers?  Do you need a coach to help you get where you need to be?

  • Positional Coaching:  Are you doing a good job but would like to improve your performance?

  • Leadership Coaching:  Does a team leader need to grow specific skills?  Does he or she need help guiding the team through an important project?  Does the team just need to be more effective?

  • Position Advancement:  Is someone on your team poised for advancement, yet lacks just a few skills required to fulfill the position?

  • High-Potential Employees:  Perhaps you want to prepare your high-potential employees for their next move in the organization, or you just don’t want to lose them while positions become available.

  • Team Coaching:  Does an entire team that is filled with good employees need help pulling their skills together to complete a project?
