Executive Coaching

September 15, 2019

First understand EVERYONE needs a coach! Every successful person has a coach. Think about this. All sports players have different types of coaches; training, diet, batting, throwing, etc. Entertainers have; voice, acting, diet and training.

Why do we think a leader is broken if they get a coach? Because we assume so!

When working with clients: The first thing I do is to assume no one is broken.

Then let them understand I’m not there to tell them how to do their job.

We focus on strengths and weaknesses:

  1. Keep doing what you’re good at.
  2. Know when to turn the “volume” down on their strengths. Most strengths become weaknesses when we do too much of it or become stressed.
  3. Identify areas to delegate to key team members who have a strength in that particular area.

Almost every person in a leadership role has told me that they what more face time with the organization. What are your three areas that are keeping you from the goal?

  1. ___________________?
  2. ___________________?
  3. ___________________?

The last thing most Sr. Leaders want is someone coming in to tell them how to do their job. I like to say we take a hard-right turn and coach on what to stop doing and what to do more of.
