Corporations Respond to Employee Stress and Anxiety, Using Executive Life Coaching to Inspire Instead of Motivate
Traditional theories on motivation in the workplace are being turned on their head in many companies. As a result of more companies encouraging employees to engage in executive life coaching to help in coping with stress, tension and anxiety, a new paradigm is arising and its defined by the word "inspiration." As executives achieve balance between their work and private lives, they are also learning how to feel inspired about what they do and, in turn, need less external motivation from their employers.
London, Ontario, Canada?August 14th, 2006. The Move Mountains Group (http://www.extraordinarymoves.com) , a Canadian Executive Coaching and Consulting Firm is teaching executives how to get inspired about what they do. Principal Coach of The Move Mountains Group, Gail Nielsen, also co-author of The Control Freaks Guide? to Living Lightly, and its forthcoming sequel, The Control Freaks Guide? to Mindful Management (http://controlfreakseries.com), has designed her company to coach executives on how to align their values with their actions. When these two aspects are brought into sync for the executive, says Nielsen, inspiration is the direct result. In turn, companies save millions of dollars on motivational incentives offered to employees, such as monetary rewards and vacations. Companies also make more money by employing inspired people, as these executives work more efficiently and typically get excited and convey this positivity about the company to investors and clients naturally.
Companies who hire executive life coach firms like The Move Mountains Group (http://www.extraordinarymoves.com) for their employees are also reaping the financial benefit in lower turnover rates and fewer compensation claims, which are often the direct result of increased stress and anxiety. Nielsen projects that more EAP (Employee Assistant Program) Companies will be offering life coaching services in the future as more companies discover the benefits of keeping their employees emotionally and mentally healthy. This change can be considered a shift from "external" to "internal motivation" and it is being fed by the growing trend in Leadership Training to turn managers into "inspiring leaders."
The Move Mountains Group (http://www.extraordinarymoves.com) offers individual executive life coaching to senior managers who feel stressed or unfulfilled in their work or private lives and who are ready to use their successes to change the world. Members of the Move Mountains team are currently conducting a series of research interviews with CEOs and managers who have become more inspired as a result of working with executive life coaches and this research will be used in The Control Freaks Guide? to Mindful Management as well as other corporate publications.
