EXECUTIVE & ManaGeMenT COACHING Why Invest in a Coach?
For many executives, business strategy decisions are easy. But when it comes to people issues, the decisions become more difficult. Building and managing relationships don’t come naturally for many leaders. As a result, they put off handling people issues such as poor performance, behavior problems, and conflicts. Even larger issues such as development, succession planning, and retention are put aside.
This is why so many progressive companies are realizing that individual coaching is a worthy investment. One-on-one executive coaching focuses on an individual executive’s capacities, behaviors, values, beliefs, motivators, and challenges. C-level executives have different challenges and therefore have different needs than a mid-level manager.
Coaching is the best way to move leaders from where they are to where they want to be. Additionally, executives who are coached also learns how to coach others. Great leaders recognize that a primary responsibility is to mentor and coach those rising in their ranks. A leader who experiences the coaching process understands firsthand the impact and power of coaching.
