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:


  • Relevance: How does it assist in both professional and personal development?
    Answer: The pace of real life@work demands our attention. The rate of personal and professional burnout, fatigue and disengagement is occurring at an alarming pace. Sustained personal and professional leadership requires resilience, increased capacity to anticipate needs and the capability to respond to change, along with the ability to be intentional and focused on what aligns with your values and the vision of your employer. It helps if you’re also a warm, engaging leader with clear boundaries. If you need growth in any of these areas coaching offers you a trusted 3rd party perspective, guidance and accountability over an agreed period of time, with a range of inclusions and supports. 


  • Measurement of Success: Coaching is both subjective and tactical. Your outcomes are determined by how well you coachee implement learnings, respond to accountability and participate in the sessions. All our Coaching programs require the participant to complete a self-assessment survey on enrolment to procure your starting point or baseline. If the employer is sponsoring your involvement they may suggest you focus on key areas and we would need to discuss these as part of the program to confirm the suitabilty of these for your coaching program.


  • 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 sees 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. We find the majority of our clients choose the 15 session program, run over 9-12 months.


  • Content: What do we cover as core elements and is there flexibility for emerging issues and role-playing?
    Answer: In addition to the coachee emerging issues or focused KPI objectives, our Signature 7 Leadership Framework™ is at the heart of our Propel and Performance 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. 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.

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.

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.
