Global Leadership Coaching

Global Leadership Coaching

Coaching for Global Advantage, GROVEWELL’s executive coaching approach, enables leaders to adapt and perform skillfully in the global arena. We give special attention to building relationships with many different stakeholders, external and internal, who have ways of working different from our own.

Developed by corporate anthropologists and perfected during 1,000+ engagements with corporate leaders around the world, ours is the only approach to business leader coaching that is deliberately crafted to be global-minded in content and delivery, not a Made-in-America product that’s “global” merely in distribution.

WHAT MAKES GROVEWELL’S COACHING DIFFERENT?

GROVEWELL is distinguished by its coaches. Helping leaders acquire new competencies requires coaches who have years of cross-cultural business leadership experience. That describes GROVEWELL's coaches, who culturally calibrate their deliveries in order to resonate with each coachee’s cultural perspectives. Learn More

GROVEWELL's objectives for each coachee are

  • An expanded and more versatile leadership repertoire
  • An enhanced set of competencies for leadership across cultures
  • More respectful, productive relationships with diverse colleagues
  • Self-correcting behavior when encountering an unfamiliar culture
  • Effective, accelerated transitions into new roles and environments
  • Capacity to deliver intentionally sophisticated leadership worldwide.

WHAT MAKES GLOBAL LEADERSHIP DIFFERENT?

Managers who become global leaders soon question what it means to be a good leader when those being led have differing perspectives and values. New global leaders find that they need an expanded set of competencies.

Why? Because every business person is accompanied to work by his or her culture. The result is that we can find ourselves sharing business objectives with others who don’t agree how to attain them.

What those expanded competencies are, and how best to guide global business leaders to acquire them, are questions that GROVEWELL has devoted itself to answering since the early 1990s. Learn More

WHAT MAKES GLOBAL LEADERSHIP DIFFERENT?

Becoming a global leader is a challenge like no other. Leaders who have proven successful at home find that they must question their core beliefs about how the world works, what constitutes good management and leadership, what priorities a business should embrace, and how they can effectively lead others who have differing perspectives and values. To be effective as a global leader, one must be adaptable, open-minded, resilient, able to navigate through turbulent complexity, and equipped with an expanded set of competencies.

Why an expanded set of competencies? Because every business person is accompanied to work by his or her culture. “Culture” refers to the traditions, beliefs, values, and behaviors that each one of us shares with others in our formative social group. At work, we continue to enact our culture not only with those who share it, but also with others who are busily enacting their own, often quite different, cultures. This is now commonplace regardless of whether we are collaborating face-to-face, phone-to-phone, or screen-to-screen. The result is that we can find ourselves sharing business objectives with others who don’t agree how to attain them.

What those expanded competencies are, and how best to guide business leaders to acquire them, are questions that GROVEWELL has devoted itself to answering since the early 1990s. We knew, too, that we had to figure out how to go about delivering coaching to business people from cultures on six continents. This was critical because people from different cultures have widely differing reactions to the possibility, and the reality, of joining with a coach to enhance their capacities.

WHAT MAKES GROVEWELL’S COACHING DIFFERENT?

GROVEWELL is distinguished by its coaches. Helping leaders acquire new competencies requires coaches who have years of cross-cultural leadership experience and who, each day, demonstrate personal qualities such as empathy that a developing global leader can emulate. Our coaches culturally calibrate the content and delivery of their working sessions in order to resonate with each coachee’s cultural perspectives. Most importantly, our coaches bring to each engagement not only their years of experience as global leaders, nor only their intensive training as coaches, but also their hearts.

GROVEWELL is distinguished by its objectives. For GROVEWELL’s coaches, coaching is a personal mission to support each coachee’s transformation into a leader who, in the global arena, can leverage differences, build relationships with diverse stakeholders, lead high-performing global teams, and shift strategies in response to environmental changes. GROVEWELL’s basic objectives for each coachee are

  • An expanded and more versatile leadership repertoire
  • An enhanced set of competencies for leadership across cultures
  • More respectful, productive relationships with diverse colleagues
  • Self-correcting behavior when encountering an unfamiliar culture
  • Effective, accelerated transitions into new roles and environments
  • Capacity to deliver intentionally sophisticated leadership worldwide.
