DigitalQ’s consultation offering is a service to enhance and accelerate the productivity of teams operating in a development, engineering or agile environment. Using our DigitalQ assessment, we can target opportunity areas, otherwise known as dimensions of collaboration. By customizing a team based coaching accelerator, your leadership team will be aligned to the highest quadrant for outcome driven success.
One-on-one executive coaching, in this case, would be an actionable item from a consulting engagement.
Executive coaching engagements typically follow these steps:
– Intake and assessment (including multi-rater feedback using the DigitalQ Assessment and the EQi / EQi 360)
– Goal setting
– Ongoing coaching and skill development
– Measurement of results pre and post engagement
Coaching is a professional partnership between the coach and the client in achieving their targets. Executive Coaching is an inquiry-based approach to personal and professional development that is aimed at creating awareness, generating action, and facilitating learning and growth. It is about getting you where you want to be next, and focuses on improving performance by helping individuals to develop and sustain new perspectives, attitudes, skills and behaviours. It is not counselling, psychotherapy, consulting or mentorship. In fact, the coaching agenda for each session is driven by the client, specifically the professional and personal goals that the client defines.
Executive coaches are often brought into organizations to work with:
– High potentials who need additional support to reach the next level
– Managers who are valuable to the company and have key performance issues to address
– Executives who have been recently hired or promoted and need to make an immediate impact
Many scenarios are applicable and relevant for coaching.
The goal of each conversation is to enable the client or team with self discovery, establish goals and objectives, and develop actions to fulfill their vision.
Coaching is not a means to provide direction. In truth, the client has an innate capacity and capability for self-actualization from the awareness driven in partnership with their coach. Ultimately, coaching is results oriented. The executive coach is a thinking partner working interdependently with the client.
Every coaching session is a private and confidential discussion with a forward view to driving specific actionable outcomes. Coaching presents an ‘awakening’ of opportunity over the course of the engagement once trust and rapport is firmly established, with an intent to move you (the leader) or your team forward in the direction you / they so desire.
We partner with organizations that have established credentials in the development space. However, fill out the form by clicking “Get Started” on the homepage, and we will determine if DigitalQ is the right provider for your consulting or leadership development needs.

Yes, if you prefer to meet in person, that is an option. Arrangements can be made to meet at your place of business, provided you have the privacy to book a suitable space. However, most if not all sessions are virtual.
Generally, a coaching contract is for a 3, 6 or 12 month period, bi-weekly for 50 minutes. We do not disclose fees unless a discovery session and assessment has been conducted.
