Leadership Development

By the time most executives in the insurance and financial industry reach top positions, they have already demonstrated a high level of skill and determination to be the best in their respective fields and are now asked to perform as inspirational leaders as well.

Many of them face the need to improve their leadership effectiveness in the context of their current positions, without taking them away from their day-to-day responsibilities.

We have therefore developed a coaching expertise precisely to answer this specific need.

The team who developed this practice at Asquare Partners consists of experienced profiles – a senior executive and an organisational psychologist – who possess more than 15 years of experience in practical coaching and mentoring. They apply that knowledge across a variety of industries and organisations with a sound understanding of the insurance and financial industry.

Working as a partner with each client, we design leadership development paths that are customised to our client’s unique organisational needs. We have the knowledge, experience and tools to make our client’s executives the best in the business today.

Our leadership development is a highly effective method that relies on a collaborative relationship between an executive and a coach, which helps the executive identify specific personal, professional and organisational goals that may include coaching for:

    • Skills: supporting an executive to improve specific skills and competencies required in the current role.
    • Development: stretching a mid-level manager to develop the requisite leadership skills for a senior management role.
    • Performance: helping a misaligned executive understand problem areas and develop improvement plans.
    • Mentoring: sharing experience with executives about any of the top management challenges.

Onboarding & Integration

Based on constructive sharing we have with our clients, we have understood that after a search mission we remain the right partner to reinforce our client’s success.

Overview

We match talented candidates to companies. The quality of these matches defines the results of our missions. What is more, pursuing the optimal alignment of the abilities, needs and interests of the candidates when they start their job will create added value. The perfect tool to move forward on this engagement is our onboarding and integration practice.

The leadership development is centered on unlocking a person’s potential to maximise his or her own performance. The purpose of any development process is to expand self-awareness, and develop mindsets, skill sets and behaviours that will allow the coachee to align faster with the goals he/she possesses.

The onboarding and integration practice – either for Executive positions or for mid-senior level positions – has two clear objectives: supporting the chosen candidate by increasing success and reducing the risk associated with the challenges of the “first 100 days in a new job”.

Approach

Our program is practical and focuses, in real time, on the coachee’s critical business challenges by providing a unique view to understanding the situation and develop creative solutions. Professional coaches, with whom we have exclusive partnership, developed Asquare’s Onboarding & Integration service. Our approach is based on holistic coaching techniques and includes a comprehensive assessment tool – Asquare Boost Index™ – to obtain objective information about the coachee. It ensures that we take the best path to support the coachee.

Process

Through a process of feedback, action planning, and skill building, our Onboarding & Integration service has a direct and positive impact on both individual and organisational performance.

The first focus of the work is to identify and prioritise developmental needs. Each coaching engagement is customised to the needs of the individual in accordance with the client’s observations. It as a three-way partnership between the coachee, the coach, and our client, in which all involved agree on specific goals and parameters. However, topics discussed and exercises done during individual coaching sessions are considered confidential.

Then, our coaches use all their expertise to nurture this supportive partnership that will guide the coachee to his success.
