What Is A High Performance Executive Coach? Simply Explained
"Executive Coaching". If you’re a CEO, executive, or senior manager in the private corporate sector, there’s a good chance you’ve heard these two words thrown around a bit by other companies and executives.
But what exactly is executive coaching, and why do you need it?
Basically, executive coaching is where you work one-on-one with an executive coach (an expert in business, management, and leadership) to unlock your potential as a professional.
Working with a high performance executive coach helps individuals increase awareness, gain clarity and direction around business goals and develop as impactful leaders and influencers.
By using a range of strategies and techniques, executive coaches will both support you and challenge you as they help you to:
- Recognise where you’re at currently, and where you need to get to
- Articulate your short and long-term goals, and build an action plan for how you’re going to achieve them
- Identify the challenges and obstacles you’re facing, and formulate strategies to overcome them
- Understand how others currently see you, and take steps to change this perception
- Implement strategies to improve your business performance
- Maximise your professional satisfaction
- Transform into the incredible leader that you were meant to be
Now that we’ve touched on what executive coaches do, let’s talk about what they don’t do.
The best executive coaches will not tell you what to do or be instructional, as from a Neuroscience perspective this does not serve your growth and development. It hinders rapid fire learning.
Instead, they will guide you in your executive transformation journey as you come to terms with the problems you are currently facing, and you find your own solutions.
Sounds good, you might be thinking. But can I really benefit from it?
The answer is yes! Almost all executives and managers can benefit from some kind of executive coaching.
Whether you’re looking to improve your confidence as a leader, increase your performance and productivity, develop new skills, improve your relationship with your team, boost staff morale and retention rates, or simply achieve your goals faster: all of these things can be easily achieved through executive consulting.
Maybe you’re new to executive leadership, and want to make sure you start off on the right foot by making a big impact (a positive one!).
Or maybe you’re an experienced leader, but feel like you keep hitting obstacles career-wise, and want a helping hand getting things back on the right track.
Perhaps you’re stuck in a mid-career rut, and don’t know what you want, where you’re headed, or what you need to do to get there.
Whatever your situation, executive coaching can help you to level-up your skills as a leader, and transform your C-suite career.
If you’re thinking “Sounds great! How do I get started?” you’ve already taken the first and most important step in your executive coaching journey. Developing your management, leadership, and business skills is one of the best investments you can make in yourself as an executive, and if you’re willing to make that investment, you’re certain to succeed.
The only thing left to do now is choose your executive coach!
There are a lot of executive coaches out there, and all of them can talk the talk, but not all of them have actually walked the walk. I have.
As a former CEO and leader of companies raking in $250M+ in revenue, I’ve been in your shoes. I’ve walked this path before you, and know the challenges you’re facing first hand.
That’s why I coach my clients based on what I’ve learned first-hand as an accomplished, award-winning leader – not just things I’ve read in a book or heard from others.
