Services designed for Executive

ECS personalized services for executives have helped several thousand public servants bring out the best in their career. Through our consultation, coaching, mentoring and counselling services, we foster the insight our clients need to make wise decisions and to turn challenging situations into development opportunities.

While ECS tailors its solutions to the individual needs of each client, our services are of essentially two types – EX support and EX development.

  • EX support services: ECS offers a supportive environment for executives dealing with the responsibility for organizational performance. Clients can explore difficult issues, get assistance to meet current challenges and explore their options during periods of career transition.
  • EX development services: ECS helps executives address their learning needs on an individual basis and create effective strategies to move toward their career objectives. Our focus is on enhancing leadership competence at all levels beginning at entry to the EX group.
