Why have an Executive Coach?
An Executive Coach can add value to you at different points in your career. Five of the main benefits of having an Executive Coach include:
Improved focus, clarity and effectiveness
Sometimes you get too close and involved in your work and life to see the full perspective. You can’t see the wood for the trees – or are not confident you really can. Your coach will improve your understanding and insights by asking laser questions, actively listening to you and reflecting back clearly what they see, hear and notice. You gain invaluable, honest feedback which you might not get from other sources.
Better ideas and results
If you’re struggling to know whether an idea is good or bad, deluded madness or inspired genius, talking it through with someone who is completely impartial will help you hone its relevance, scope it further, change it, or let it go. Save yourself time by being challenged and supported, resulting in the best possible solution, simpler, better, faster.
Your own mind-set, negative self-talk and ‘inner gremlins’ are likely to be the biggest barriers to your ultimate success. Working with an experienced coach helps you put your perceived problems, challenges, fears, pitfalls, and anything else that is blocking you – into perspective.
Your coach will support and challenge you to picture success and achieve your ideal outcomes. You learn how to address your fears and create realistic plans and strategies to build and sustain your own inner confidence and eliminate doubts long-term.
You will have your own conscious – and less-conscious – beliefs, judgements and preconceived ideas about people and situations that could potentially be detrimental to your decision-making and your results. Your unbiased coach will help you differentiate your perception from reality, helping you see things as they really are. They may share decision-making tools and strategies to ensure you make better choices.
However committed you think you are, it can be easy to make excuses, procrastinate, put off doing things that you know you need or want to do. Your coach will not let things slip. Having an accountability partner keeps you energised and fired up, even when the going gets tough. Keeping your commitments enables you to achieve often more than you initially thought you were capable of!
