ICG Consultants begin with an assessment to determine if our focus is likely to be concentrated around personal issues related to the new role or more task oriented.

ICG’s ability to mentor helps individuals gain deeper insight into their own interactions and behaviors toward others. We encourage clients to recognize, accept and, hopefully, modify continuous behavior patterns which may, at times, impede personal performance. Mentors often will challenge a manager’s thought process, provoking personal insights and comfortable solutions to the issues at hand.
ICG offers a coaching approach that focuses on workplace procedures. We educate managers on processes and methods to improve productivity. We offer specific guidance and advice individuals placed in new positions to ensure the best chance for success. On occasion, individuals may experience a challenging period, and counseling may be needed to improve coping mechanisms.

An executive coach brings an advanced array of skill-sets that can be implemented with the goal of transforming the mindset with new subject-specific perspectives. It is instructional in its focus.
