Years ago, executive coaches were brought into companies to deal with “difficult or low performing employees.” If you were struggling to meet goals, not connecting with others, or having issues with time management, a coach would be brought in to work with you as a last ditch effort before you were terminated.
Today, the dynamic has shifted considerably. Entrepreneurs, managers, executives and small business owners don’t wait for a problem to surface. Instead, they seek the support of a coach themselves because they know success doesn’t happen by accident
They want to show up each day as their most well developed, professional selves because they’ve set the bar high and want to explore their potential. They know that it takes an investment in themselves and their future to get the results they want.
They aren’t afraid to acknowledge their weaknesses and practice new techniques to bring out their strengths. In fact, they soak up any insights that might help them understand “why they do what they do”.
These motivated professionals want planning and accountability. They’ve realized that the support of a boss, a colleague or a friend isn’t enough to help them reach their professional goals. More than anything, they want to work with someone who understands the science of success . . . and can teach it.
Good coaching breeds good coaching and positive change.
When leaders get effective coaching, the positive effect trickles down to other members of their business organization . . . and results in growth for everyone. The well-coached leader becomes a better coach and support for the whole team.
As a business leader, it’s important to offer this kind of support and accountability to your employees and team members. A good coach has studied organization development, leadership, influence and communication, and is naturally skilled at lifting others to new professional heights.
Coaching can improve…
- Listening and communication skills
- Team morale and attitude
- Professional growth that results in building a future team
Setting the example of engaging a coach and being a good coach elevates the professional experience for everyone on your team.
If you’re ready to reach new heights and achieve greater success in your business, coaching can help you get there. And if you’re ready to take your organization to the next level by supporting every member of the team to be their best, coaching will provide the path to increased success for everyone.
Your success is my business,
