May 22, 2012 Leave a comment
If you are a manager or executive looking to improve your performance, increase your productivity, build your leadership skills, manage your team better or advance your career, coaching can definitely help you do that.
Your coach can help you get very clear on what you want to accomplish and what’s holding you back, set clear compelling goals based on that, develop strategies and action plans, and help you execute while providing the support and accountability you need to bring the best in you.
Bob Nardelli, CEO of Home Depot said this about coaching “I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum potential.”
- Set goals that are so remarkable, they appear too good to be true.
- Gain clarity in your vision
- Become the leader you always wanted to be
- Develop a winning team to assist you to achieve your vision
- Set and achieve proactive, powerful goals rather than just reacting to life!
- Travel through the minefields of the executive world with confidence and results
- Breakout of self-defeating behaviors!
- Gain a totally loyal partner to assure that you achieve executive greatness!
- Unleash the powers within you, to accomplish more than you ever thought possible!
The Role Played By Executive Coaches
Coaches help clients and their employers set realistic development goals. They create practical action plans to reach those goals. And they monitor their clients’ progress to ensure they are taking responsibility for their commitments.
Coaches help the client identify causes and solutions when objectives are not being achieved.
Coaches ask questions. Sometimes they play devil’s advocate, asking tough questions that force their clients to review their own progress, assess what’s gone wrong, and decide what actions to take next.
Coaches review a client’s experiences, successes and challenges, to help them understand what kinds of behaviours generate the best results.
