Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
Eric H. Gore, president and chief executive officer of The Business Coach of Texas (BCOT) announced today the firm's qualification by the Robert Hargrove executive coaching organization for its Hargrove Masterful Coaching certification program. BCOT's completion of the program demonstrates that the company meets the rigorous standards required to conduct the Hargrove coaching methodology on behalf of its clients.
"Robert Hargrove is the undisputed Godfather of professional business coaching, and has more than a decade of experience helping thousands of business and government executives achieve their organizational and professional goals," said Eric H. Gore. "Having completed the course work for certification, we're delighted to be able to bring a higher-caliber coaching experience to our business coaching clients in Texas and the Southwest."
BCOT coaching builds on decades of successful international business experience and tough, road-proven techniques to help move executives and business leaders from traditional transaction-oriented thinking to transformational solutions that enable organizations to achieve break-out results, even in the toughest of economic times.
The Masterful Coaching organization, founded in 1995 by Robert Hargrove, is a global coaching network made up of "A players" who are trained in Robert Hargrove's "Masterful Coaching: The Method" program. It is designed to help CEOs grow their business exponentially, multiply their profits and win the talent war. Masterful Coaching works with leaders of Global 1000 firms who recognize that, just as in sports and the performing arts, the more remarkable the performers, the more they seek a remarkable coach who can take their game to the next level.
"I see the partnership with The Business Coach of Texas as a way to democratize the Masterful Coaching approach for CEOs and senior leaders of any size business," said Hargrove. "Eric H. Gore and his firm have a powerful and proven track record that includes successful company turn-arounds, product launches and innovative go-to-market campaigns. The team of Eric H. Gore and the Robert Hargrove Masterful Coaching organization will help clients everywhere to better execute company strategies and reach new levels of performance, even while facing these tough economic times."
The Masterful Coaching program, which targets CEOs and senior leaders, is based on 12 classic coaching conversations--and provides a way to create an inspired high-performing organization. They include:
1) Creating an extraordinary coaching relationship
2) Designing an Impossible Future, and Game Changing Strategy
3) Creating a Team of A Players
4) Building Your Brand Based on a Dramatic Difference
5) Improving Production, Distribution
6) Six Sigma Business Processes
7) Multiplying Sales
8) Providing Unmatched Customer Experience
9) Making Great Decisions and Judgment Calls
10) Focus on the Scoreboard---Financial management
11) Executive Time management
12) Executive Life Coaching
"This is a way to create an inspired, high performing organization," said Tom Kaiser, president of Zurich Financial, a Hargrove Masterful Coach client. Masterful Coaching is a body of specially trained and certified professionals united in changing the game for creating extraordinary leaders and in producing extraordinary business results that lead to inspired, high performing organizations. Per Hargrove, the approach is not an extension of traditional executive education or training programs, or like traditional coaching, counseling or consulting. It is not about studying leadership characteristics and traits, providing binders full of reports and recommendations, or tips and techniques.
Hargrove adds that Masterful Coaching is a distinct domain with its own set of guiding ideas, tools and methods proven to help clients create an "impossible future" for themselves and their businesses. Many Hargrove clients--including Fred Steers of Conoco Philips--report that the Masterful Coaching approach has helped their companies grow and succeed. The Masterful Coaching approach made the company $100s of millions of dollars, according to Hargrove.
"Our highly trained Masterful Coaching certified partners work with their respective clients to formulate an 'impossible future' expressed in extraordinary and tangible business results, then stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them in producing those results over the course of a year or more. In the process, our coaches' clients develop as visionary leaders, people developers, collaborators, and inspired profit mechanics," said Hargrove. "We're delighted to recognize Eric H. Gore and The Business Coach of Texas to our Certified Masterful Coach organization."
