Behind every great athlete there is an even greater coach. There isn’t a top athlete who did not need a mentor to help them reach the top of their profession.
If you think about it, your business is similar to that of an elite athlete. You may have the determination, the expertise, and the vision, but there are times when you need professional guidance to ensure you stay on the right path, and how to best utilize your talents and work on your shortcomings to reach your goals. An executive coach can be that person.)
No matter where you are on your career path–from enthusiastic emerging manager to an experienced senior executive to an entrepreneur, there will be times when you can benefit from some professional coaching.
Though mentoring is valuable at all levels, executive coaching is a bit different. Coaches are generally found outside of the executive’s network of contacts and peers. They evaluate the executive and may utilize 360 leadership assessments to incorporate other perspectives.
