Executive Coaching

 

      Business leaders are, or certainly should be, constantly seeking ways to improve their leadership skills, thereby enhancing not only the quality of their own lives and the lives of their employees, but the overall health and efficiencies of their organizations. While the needs of leaders today vary in breadth and complexity, and while there is not an “out-of-the-box” template for addressing the many corporate twists and turns, there are real solutions that can be achieved by applying both proven and creative principles in how we approach the daily challenges and opportunities that will inevitably arise.

      One solution to effectively address our professional development is to continue to seek information and rely upon what we read or hear in our daily interactions. This can be an effective option when we are appropriately tuned in. But, in today’s fast-paced business environment where the impacts of our decisions can be far reaching, both positively and negatively, and where we are being pulled in so many directions, utilizing the services of an effective executive coach is often worth real consideration.

As you consider hiring an executive coach, ask yourself:

  • Is my professional development critical to my organization’s success and could I benefit from the expertise and experience of a coach that can quickly grasp the situation, challenge my assumptions, and bring credible ideas to the table?
  • What are my specific challenges right now and am I open to ideas other than my own to tackle them? (Remember though, the goal of an effective coach is not to answer every question or solve every problem, but to assist the executive seek methods to solve their own issues today and well into the future.)
  • Am I coachable and readily prepared to share my experiences, and perhaps most importantly, am I realistic about my strengths and weaknesses? Can I leverage the right coach?
