GENEVVA CAREER CHOREOGRAPHY:
Moving Up Requires First Looking Within and Around
You have come far in your career – you are recognized as an expert in your domain, you have a track record of stellar results and repetitive positive reviews, yet you feel your successful career has hit a plateau. The feedback about your performance and about your next career move is vague, confusing and at times contradictory and you might have been passed over for a promotion.
Taking charge of your present situation and future ambition is the only way to achieve success.
Our coaching for career advancement is based on these few basic, but important principles:
- If you don’t plan your career, someone else will plan it for you
- You get promoted based on your reputation
- You are able to control in yourself only that which you are aware of
- Politics is unavoidable – it takes both great performance and being political savvy to get ahead
- Stepping up your game – develop the essential capabilities to listen, analyze, strategize, speak confidently and form key alliances
- Seek out opportunities for advancement: challenging, stretching, visible projects
During our coaching sessions, you get to reflect, review, and evaluate your personal leadership style and interpersonal skills and choose the most impactful behavioral changes you want to make that will help you advance your career.
Each coaching program is highly customized to the client’s needs. However, our experience shows that to have the upward career trajectory it helps to:
- Learn to navigate skillfully the organizational arena
- Learn to handle well challenging, high-stakes conversations (such as negotiation, conflict, underperformance)
- Increase visibility and influence and internalize executive presence
- Discover where your attention and efforts are most needed
- Learn to self-monitor and self-regulate
- Develop leadership abilities that fall outside your comfort zone
- Lead in difficult times with confidence, credibility, and care
Definition: Knowing your strengths and weaknesses in comparison to those of your competitors and teammates
Turning insights into action:
Become aware of career and leadership derailments – interpersonal behaviors that negatively affect your performance and reputation at work.
- Work on your mental game by adopting a high-performance success mindset
- Set crystal clear priorities for your career & optimize your use of time & energy
Who you are drives how you behave. How you behave is what creates your reputation.
In organizations, your reputation precedes you. Is your current reputation helping you get to where you want to be? What do people say about you when you are not around?
Who are you known to be in your organization?
- The one who focuses on getting things done or on bringing people on board?
- The one who listens or the one who talks more
- Leads with facts or emotions?
- Micromanages or delegates easily?
- Solutions-driven or problem-focused?
- The one who loves risk or the one who likes predictability and planning?
“The more faithfully you listen to the voice within you, the better you will hear what is sounding outside.” Dag Hammarskjöld
UNDERSTANDING OTHERS AND BEING POLITICALLY SAVVY
Becoming politically savvy is about learning to interact with people who have what we want and who want what we have to give.
Navigating the organizational maze by:
- Understanding the relational and organizational dynamics
- Noticing who are the influencers and key people in the organization
- Developing a sensitivity to the culture of the organization
- Developing your capability to build key partnerships
Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn‘t mean politics won‘t take an interest in you. – Pericles
- What behaviors does your organization state it promotes? What behaviors are actually being rewarded? What behaviors are being tolerated within your organization?
- Do you know your real worth to the organization?
- Is there any strategic information that you might be missing?
- Can you speak confidently about your accomplishments?
- Can you handle with confidence challenging, high-profile situations, and difficult people?
