Coaching Exceptional Executives
Coaching works. When two people come into conversation around a single, compelling purpose. When that purpose is you, your skills, your growth and your vision, coaching can be life-changing.
Leading people and organisations is exciting but can be exhausting. It can be rewarding, but it can also sometimes be maddening. Whatever your experience, the coaches at Multiplex are trained to be your thinking partner through it all.
Multiplex coaches use conversation, listening, contact, experiment, support, challenge, commitment and theory to activate their client's success.
Activation coaching is our central process.
People receive feedback all day long: directly or indirectly it comes in the whirlwind of our personal or business lives; new expectations, new resources, restricted options, disruptions, opportunities and challenges. We're told to be more "flexible but determined"; "people-centred but task-focused"; "warm and engaging but sometimes ruthless"; "focused on consolidation but driving growth". Business leadership is an impossibly complex environment to master and it makes sense that coaching, with a clear, committed thinking partner adds value.
But how does it unlock improved problem-solving and performance? The answer that we've been developing with our academic research partners, our coaches and clients for the past twenty years is Activation Coaching. It's based on the principles of gestalt and the focus is primarily on increasing the individual's awareness rather than setting goals. Time spent on deeply understanding the developmental question is far more profitable than time spent chasing countless goals or objectives.
Activation coaching is about results, we achieve better results than other, goal-centred approaches, particularly in complex, high level roles where the change involves a new sense of identity rather than simply new actions.

Coaching has become one of the most valued personal development strategies in the world because it is so effective. One-on-one individual coaching is flexible both in terms of your time, with coaching generally scheduled for 1 hour bimonthly, and in terms of your geography, with the majority of our coaching conducted virtually.
Feeling overwhelmed, disheartened or exhausted in one's career is a common reality and is one of the biggest themes we work with. Coaching is an opportunity to work with a professional coach, to talk about what is happening and to figure out what the next steps are.
Individual business coaching supports a variety of situations. Some of which are:
To facilitate transitions between roles and/or levels
To increase self-awareness of own potential
To activate one's potential
To improve current performance
To change or adapt behaviours, attitudes and/or approaches
To master new behaviours
We use group coaching as an effective tool when working with teams to improve their productivity and to improve and enhance relationships within the team. Our experience with group coaching, although focused on the group, has also shown its effectiveness unlocking and amplifying individuals personal strengths, self-efficacy, leadership qualities, team building and beyond.
Group coaching in organisations has become increasingly common in recent decades with Human Resources and organisational development teams expected to regularly deliver coaching support. Professional group coaching has many benefits, not least is the ability to strengthen team bonds and team alignment.
Informed by Psychology, Neuroscience and over 20 years of industry experience, Multiplex Partners has learnt how best to apply and adapt our approach to group coaching to best unlock the talent and potential of your team.
Following a deep-dive development assessment that identifies key strengths and development areas, Feedback Activation serves as a means of bridging the ‘What?’ to the ‘So what?’ and the ‘Now what?’. The assessment is the What, the feedback is the So What and Feedback Activation is the Now What. It acts to consolidate and activate the findings of the assessment in a way that is deeper and more meaningful than can be explored through a single feedback session.
One of the most fundamental aspects of post-assessment feedback is that it is a dynamic, interactive process that seeks to explore the deeper meaning and relevance of the person’s psychometric profile. Feedback activation is a loosely structured programme specifically tailored to the person’s environment and to their individual development needs as informed by the results from their development assessment. The programme runs over a course of 2 months (4 sessions) and is facilitated by a trained assessment specialist.
The form in which assessment results and their implications are presented can heavily influence how the person will interpret their meaning and will decide what courses of action may be most promising. Psychology's vast body of theory and research in such areas as cognitive processes and decision making makes it clear that the language and context in which information is presented can exert profound, sometimes decisive influences.
