LEADERSHIP IS A CONTACT SPORT

Many leadership coaches are paid for the wrong reasons. Their income is mostly related to how much their clients like them and how much time they spend on their coachees. However, this is not a good metric when it comes to achieving positive, long-term changes in leadership behavior.

There are no previous studies that prove the correlation between a client’s likability and leadership change. In fact, most of the time, coaches who are too focused on getting the client to like them may not provide honest feedback when it is needed — which means, they are not helping their client as effectively as they should be.

My approach to coaching is different — "I don't get paid if you don't get better". "Better" is not judged by me, nor the leader being coached. Better is judged by those who contact on a regular basis with the leader: manager, peers and subordinates. I believe the development of a leader is a contact sport.

I am all about results. I work with my clients exclusively on a pay-for-results basis.

How many of the top-10 tennis players in the world have coaches? 
All of them.  They all have help.
 
Can you imagine Roger Federer or Serena Williams without a coach? Why would we think that these greats need help, and we in leadership positions can do it by ourselves.

EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP COACHING

Improving your leadership skills does not happen by accident.  Rather than just give you advice and send you on your way, Carlos has a very unique approach to executive coaching as it Guarantees Measurable Leadership Growth and therewith differentiates itself from most other coaching methodologies.

 “My coach Carlos DaSilva realized I often struggled to display executive presence, which undermined my communication impact. This gap not only hindered my personal growth but also impacted my effectiveness as a leader in PostFinance’s dynamic landscape. Addressing these issues was crucial for my career and the success of the teams I lead.”

MEASURABLE LEADERSHIP GROWTH

A lot of what passes for leadership development can be a waste of time.

See if you recognize this process:

  • Your company taps you as a future leader. It sends you to "leadership camp," which can last anywhere from a day to a couple of weeks.

  • You're entertained by a parade of speakers (like me).

  • You're required to critique the speakers and rate how effective they were.

 

But nobody is rating you. Nobody is following up to see what you learned or if you have actually become a more effective leader. 


Coaching performance should be measured.

 

That is why I work with Marshall Goldsmith - The Nº 1 coaching process for leadership development in the world.

 

Of the 11,000 leaders who have been through this process, 95% demonstrated quantifiable improvement in their leadership effectiveness.
