CASE STUDY (RLM)
Client: CIO at Los Angeles-based global hospitality company.
Challenge: This executive, while very successful in his job performance and well-liked by his boss and peers, risked serious consequences due to his sometimes reckless personal behavior while on company business.
Dr. Z's Solution: Twenty-four twice-weekly one-on-one strictly confidential coaching sessions to assist this executive in developing mindfulness, insight, and behavioral change. Sessions highlighted the interaction of leadership factors that contributed to his style: temperament, personality, talents, and skills. Focus was kept on intersubjective process issues, measurable objectives, “here and now” contextual issues, systemic implication of individual behavior, positive reinforcement, and emotional intelligence coordinates.
Results: The executive gained insight into the processes that created the conditions in which maladaptive behavior could take place, the most frequent triggering events, the typical sequence of each episode, and the likely resolution and consequences. Insights fostered heightened awareness, the implementation of thought and action stopping mechanism, and substitution with other more adaptive behaviors.
Delights: The executive was referred to a counseling professional for further follow up and consolidation of skills. The executive reported a significant improvement in stress levels, productivity and interpersonal relationships.
