How Can Executive Coaching Help?

Over the past few decades, executive coaches have gone from rarely seen to commonplace in most organizations. A big driver in that growth has been the success leaders have seen in several key executive coaching areas of focus. Forbes cites these top ways coaching can make you more successful:

  • See yourself more clearly. We know from current research that most of us don’t see ourselves very clearly. That’s a critical shortcoming in business: accurate self-awareness in leaders is highly correlated with effectiveness and profitability.
  • See others more clearly. We’ve all seen leaders run into problems because of their inaccurate assessments of those around them, losing good employees or keeping poor performers too long.
  • Learn new ways to respond. As Marshall Goldsmith wrote in his seminal coaching and business book, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, “We all have a set of capabilities and responses that may serve us well as mid-level employees but that won’t help us as more senior leaders.” 
  • Leverage your existing strengths. Having the right coach can help you identify and utilize strengths that you already have but perhaps are hidden or underestimated. 
  • Build more productive relationships. Coaching can help leaders build strong working relationships with a wider variety of people throughout their organizations.
  • Achieve what you want. Through coaching, many have been able to approach their work and careers with fresh perspectives, set more effective goals and move forward personally and professionally.

Executive coaching is about you as a whole person: your values, goals, balance, fulfillment, and purpose. While this work can be challenging, it can also be fun – and pays immense dividends
