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.
If you would like to discuss how I can help you and your organization meet your goals, please contact me to set up an introductory meeting or call. Coaching is personalized and normally conducted one-on-one for a defined period and with a specific purpose in mind. Coaching is about moving the coachee (person being coached) from a current place or situation to a new place or situation. The coachee owns the process and becomes self accountable for greater performance. It is quickly becoming one of the top tools that today’s leaders, executives and entrepreneurs use to run successful organizations and lead fulfilling lives.
I believe strongly in building relationships and earning the trust of the people I work with. Before we begin working together we will meet for a free consultation to talk about why you are considering hiring an Executive coach. At the same time, you will have an opportunity to learn more about me and my coaching style. The session will help you determine if I am a good fit to help you reach your personal and business goals.
Sessions usually last one hour and take place two times per month but can vary depending on your needs and schedule. Because coaching is about making sustainable changes, many coaches ask for a six to nine-month commitment from new clients. Following the initial coaching agreement, many clients choose to continue the coaching relationship.
