Do you feel more alone as you climb the corporate ladder? As we rise in an organization we experience the pressure of added resonsibilities. We are required to learn new skills. Your leadership role involves less day to day task completion and is more strategic in nature. It now involves developing people.
John Maxwell’s “Law of the Lid” relates that a team can only rise as high as its leadership. An executive coach is an ally who is focused on fast-forwarding your professional development. As you become stronger and more agile, so will your direct reports and followers.
Benefits of Executive Coaching
A surprising number of executives have used coaching with successful results. Eric Schmidt, former CEO of Google, claims that hiring an executive coach was one of the best pieces of advice he’s ever received. Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, expressed his belief that “we all need a coach. We all need feedback because that’s how we can improve.”
