You’ve Heard About Executive Coaching for Leaders and You’re Wondering Is It For You or a Member of Your Team?

There’ll be a range of factors influencing your decision to participate in Executive Coaching, and it goes beyond price. Here are some of the common questions Tarran Deane is asked about Executive Coaching:

  • Confidentiality: Is what I say private or will it be shared with my boss?
    Answer: When you self-fund your coaching with us, everything is absolutely private. In instances where participation is employer-sponsored, you and your employer may have agreed on milestones and discussions points that can be shared.  In our 10 Propel and 15 Performance Programs, we typically have 1-2 joint meetings with your employer. We follow your lead here.


  • Perception: Am I being offered this because my up-line see’s me as a go-getter and wants to invest in me or because s/he doesn’t want to spend the time with me?
    AnswerIn our initial meeting we clarify perceptions and have really open conversations about barriers that might be a risk and we agree on strategies to ensure you receive the absolute best outcome for you, through this coaching opportunity. You the coaching recipient are our number one priority while honouring boundaries and clarifying expectations BEFORE any coaching engagement takes place.


  • Rapport: Do I get to choose if we’re a great fit or not?
    AnswerYou sure do and the best way is to click on the complimentary 30 Minute Discovery Session. Let’s have a conversation to see if the shoe fits. >> Button right here 


  • Duration: How long do I participate in coaching when I have so much to do already?
    AnswerCheck out your Coaching Framework below to confirm your preferred method of engagement. Coaching only works if it is valued as a resource to help you achieve your goals vs. seen as an interruption


  • Content: What do we cover as core elements and is there flexibility for emerging issues and role-playing?
    AnswerOur Signature 7 Leadership Framework™ is at the heart of our Propel and Perform Programs providing a mixed mode of core elements and flexibility for both employer-sponsored Leadership and Executive Coaching Packages, and the self-funded and highly motivated entrepreneur or executive


  • Face to Face Delivery: I would prefer to travel to you Tarran on the Gold Coast, rather than do electronic or virtual meetings. Is this possible?
    Answer: We love working with our clients face to face and typically set aside one day a week for our interstate and intrastate clients to meet with us at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, home of the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Appointment times are typically one-hour blocks, with some clients electing to do two back to back sessions, once a month, and virtual at other times

I was privileged to spend some time with Tarran Deane - Corporate Cinderella at a Conference in Sydney. Tarran’s ability to quickly understand and empathise with my business situation is a true testament of her knowledge and experience. Tarran clearly conveyed strategies that I was able to implement immediately to create a positive effect on my business and me personally. I can’t thank Tarran enough. I can highly recommend Tarran (Corporate Cinderella) to anyone wanting to take their business and themselves to the next level and beyond.

When I was offered the opportunity to have an executive coach, Tarran Deane was THE person top of mind. As a national executive in a high profile organisation, with complex dynamics, Tarran is the person who guided me through the season, who helped me clarify focus and direction and equipped me to navigate it. My team directly benefited as a result. I highly recommend every executive having a high-level Coach and Mentor. My recommendation is Tarran Deane. Brilliant.

I have had the pleasure of working with Tarran on a number of occasions and WOW seems to sum up my experience perfectly. I have benefited from one on one coaching and Senior Leadership team building workshops with Tarran where she encouraged me to understand my personal values and how these impacted my thinking and decision making when working with my team. Tarran listens deeply and ensures that she gains a thorough and clear understanding of your business and team, then [through individual or group coaching], takes you on a journey of self discovery and provides you with the tools to reach your destination. Tarran is a woman with amazing insight, skills, knowledge and a passion for seeing others reach their goals. She provides a supportive environment whilst ensuring you are accountable and committed to walking your talk. Working with Tarran does not feel like work, it's like two friends sitting down together to discuss a common goal. Thank you Tarran for your support and guidance. I am always grateful for the time we have spent together.
