Champion athletes know that the best way to improve performance, achieve greater success and become the best they can be is by working with a coach. It seems plausible that if coaching is integral to success in sports, why wouldn’t the same principles work in leadership?
“Executive Coaching is the fastest growing phenomenon today”
So what is Executive Coaching?
Executive coaching is a detailed process designed to help facilitate leadership development and personal growth resulting in improved performance of executives. Executive coaches lead their clients towards the fulfillment of specific professional goals.
Today’s executives are experiencing unprecedented change. They are inundated with changing business models, employee discontent, high turnover rates, meetings galore, and too many emails and voice messages.
Does this sound like you?
Are you dealing with unprecedented organizational change and complexity?
Are you finding the challenges in a “doing more with less” environment stressful?
Are you proactively developing your abilities and developing the people around you?
Why is Executive Coaching Experiencing Growth?
Executives realise that the higher you move up in an organization, the harder it is to find honest feedback. You are expected to have all the answers, yet how do you know you have the best solutions? An executive coach can help you work through the challenges you face, provide you with honest non-judgemental feedback and setup processes that create success.
Listen to what corporate leaders are saying about executive coaching.
“Who exactly, seeks out a coach? Winners who want even more out of life.” – Chicago Tribune
“The hottest thing in management today is getting a coach.” – Fortune Magazine
“I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.” – Bob Nardelli, CEO, Home Depot
The Roots of Coaching
Champion athletes know that the best way to improve performance, achieve greater success and become the best they can be is by working with a coach. It seems plausible that if coaching is integral to success in sports, why wouldn’t the same principles work in leadership? The question then, is could a sales executive benefit from working with a coach? My answer is easily, how could a sales executive NOT benefit from coaching!
The truth is everybody needs a coach. It only makes good business sense. A good coach helps you focus and remove the obstacles that are blocking your growth. But not everyone is ready to be coached. Ask yourself the question, are you ready for success, are you ready to be coached?
