Why use an executive coach?
Why would you, as an executive, want to use the services of an executive coach?
Coaching can be particularly effective in times of change for an executive. An example would be a promotion. You may feel confident in your ability to tackle this new job, however, you may also feel that an independent, outside consultant would be beneficial in helping to:
- Pinpoint and sharpen new skills that may be necessary to use
- Develop new strategies that may be necessary to employ
- Succeed in achieving a higher level of performance
An executive coach can also be very effective when you feel stuck, “burned out”, or unable to solve a problem. They can help you to:
- Gain insight to get to the root of the problem
- Target strategies to resolve the problem
- Learn new skills or reinforce current ones to help advance your goals
Most athletes use a coach to enhance their performance level. An executive coach can help you to accelerate your career and become a “top performer”, a winner.
Coaching is effective for executives who say, “I want to get over there, but I’m not sure how to do it,” says James Hunt, an associate professor of management at Babson College and coauthor of The Coaching Manager (Sage Publications, 2002).
