Why Executive Coaching?
Many people like you believe that executive coaching is a collaborative relationship between you and a skilled individual, a coach with experience and a proven track record. You might decide to initiate a coaching relationship to develop your leadership skills and to increase your effectiveness. You probably realize that leadership development requires a significant investment in time and that it requires you to have a great deal of discipline and courage. You expect the coach you choose to help you achieve a measurable, positive outcome so you can justify the effort. After all, time is one of your most valuable assets.
Leadership coaching is like sports coaching. Imagine you are an athlete that is finding it hard to win and get ahead. You might have difficulties understanding what is keeping you from winning. Is it a lack of training? Is it a lack of physical workouts? Are there nutritional issues? How do you go about identifying these gaps? You would probably turn to a coach, someone who is an expert in your sport, someone who can help you achieve your objectives.
Have you considered a coach who can be your partner, someone who can observe you in action, help you identify the gaps, and help you create a plan to improve your performance? Terry can help.
