Executive Coaching

The Need

What got you here will not take there. As you move up within the corporate hierarchy, it gets tougher to find honest, unbiased developmental feedback. That’s why executive coaching works.
The evidence is that decision-makers and influencers succeed when they have gradually built the so-called soft skills. These skills include those of influencing, of applying emotional intelligence, of being unafraid of self-reflection.

Developmental coaching responds to multiple contexts, including:
Building confidence and competence in the diverse components of your new role.
Identifying “blind-spots” that hold you back as you lead and influence others.
Investing in a confidential “sounding board” as you make tough decisions aligned to your company’s strategies?
Globally mobile and moving to a new business culture in another country.

7 things to expect of your Executive Coaching

  1. Your coaching is customised, action and results-orientated. The coaching structure is designed jointly with you and specifically for you.
  2. Your coaching is future and solution focused.
  3. The coaching is grounded in your goals and intentions, what concerns or confronts you.
  4. Your coaching sessions works mostly between the dimension of ‘ask’ and ‘how-to’. They invite you to grow in in the cognitive, behavioural and affective domains of your life.
  1. Clear coaching goals are established via the pre-coaching confidential questionnaire and the clarifying process of the first coaching session.
  2. Your coach is credentialed and invests in ongoing coaching or supervision themselves.
  3. First contracts typically outline an initial six-month series, in recognition of the developmental process involved.


“At the Business Analysts Professional Day Taruni presented a new and refreshing approach for on-the-job stress management. The technology of the micro-practice as a way to renew and reboot during the workday is simple, easy to fit into my tight schedule and takes less than a minute. What’s not to like!"

Katya Orlovskaya, Data Governance Analyst at Cbus Super Fund 2017

"Nurse Managers want both clinical and communication professional development to keep them current and competent. Since April 2014, Taruni has been the speaker we always reach for when it comes to growing the intrapersonal and interpersonal communication skills of our delegates. Taruni rapidly engages delegates, she challenges, and she inspires with content that combines, in fresh and practical ways, the hard data of the neurosciences with emotional intelligence. The outcome for our clients is to feel refreshed, renewed, energised."

Zoe Youl, Event Education Conference Manager, Ausmed Education 2014-19

"Taruni has provided two presentations for our Toyota New Zealand HQ staff. The first was about working effectively with Japanese counterparts. The second presentations focused on practical ways to build moment- to-moment renewal within our work days. Both presentations were closely tied to our business values. Taruni has been the catalyst for us to build further knowledge, information and resources in this tow areas. I highly recommend her services to other’s wishing to connect more effectively with other people, and people from cultural backgrounds different to our own."
