Director Development 

Coaching Senior Executives… The Personal Summits Director Development Programme helps breakthrough the ceiling of complexity – getting you through to the next level. 

Has your success to date brought you to a productive but static level of results? Where working harder or longer doesn’t actually achieve more?   Where things seem to get more complex – a sense of diminishing returns, working to keep others employed rather than employees working for you? 

Getting stuck at a certain level of success may be a result of being buried in activity and detail that drains you of energy, slowing or destroying creativity. 
 
Do you dread the legions of files that confront you; the daily fires that only you can put out; the adrenaline panic as you catch a hidden deadline; the un-returned phone calls resounding long after the day’s end? Does this justify the price for success which, though at first was hardly noticeable, now consumes you, to the extent that the fun and satisfaction of being your own master has faded? 
 
Or, maybe it’s the opposite? 
 
Things are too exciting, almost out of control. Chaos reigns because too many projects, cases, or businesses are stimulating your desire for challenge, but all are moving too fast to control. Tension between work and family increases as you find yourself spread ever thinner, almost to breaking point, no time to think and re-focus.

Personal Summits’ Director Development Programme is principally designed for leaders or organisations working in partnership via questioning techniques and honest feedback that clears the way for more incisive thinking. It is a partnership of coaching support rather than advice. 
 
Many directors speak of the lack of development programmes that are fine tuned to where they are. As a Director you are unique in your experience and development, so off-the-shelf programmes and courses can be both time-consuming and often mostly irrelevant. Also, directors often experience a sense of isolation at the top and lack the confidential facility to talk through ideas, problems or solutions. 
 
Through its design and structure, one-to-one Director Coaching can provide you with the personal support and guidance you require to develop your specific skills wherever you are. Whilst Richard Bisiker, has a broad business management and development background, nationally and internationally, it is his skill of questioning and leading you to your own answers and better self-knowledge that makes the difference.

“In the 21st Century key soft skills or ‘people skills’ are increasingly necessary for those at the top. The feedback and self-insight necessary to acquire these soft skills was an area often neglected in the past by business schools and internal company training programmes. This is why there is now a skills gap among some now reaching the top.” 
R.Pearson, Director of Institute of Employment Studies
