As business leaders and owners, it is imperative that we are on top of our game. Why not take advantage of the opportunity so many other business leaders have already seized? Every successful organizational leader, senior executive, C-level executive, or business owner has had a trusted advisor to guide, support, and provide nuggets of wisdom. After all, anyone who strives to reach greater heights is four times more likely to reach those goals with a support system (Ericcson, 1996). As a trusted advisor, our coaches and mentors provide industry specific expertise, weaved with credentials and training.
Our role as your trusted advisor is to create and maintain a supportive environment that promotes conditions for continuous improvement. We capitalize on the strengths you possess to create an avenue to capitalize on those traits; we acknowledge areas for improvement and guide you through reinforcement. As an active partner, your trusted advisor supports self-directed improvement while suggesting goals and providing resources, wisdom, and knowledge.
We recognize that organizational leaders, senior executives, C-level managers, and business owners who are committed to the process reap greater rewards, so the trusted advisor relationship is borne of a genuine drive to improve. We also realize that when the individual is involved in diagnosing, planning, implementing, and evaluating their own needs and progress, they are more likely to sustain progress (Knowles, 1980, as cited by Zachary, 2000).
Why coaching? The strongest driving force that transforms an amateur and an elite performer is the sheer fact that elite contributor seeks out coaches and participate in administered support. Those who track and report their progress to someone holding them accountable are 76% more likely to reach those goals (Ericsson, 1996). To further strengthen success, those who form a solid working relationship with their supporter drive up the rate exponentially.
As an organizational leader, senior executive, C-level manager, or business owner, you have mastered the art of your trade. You have discovered the gift you possess that puts you in prime position. Yet, even with a strong leadership team and the best of intentions, many businesses face challenges that they are unprepared to meet. The most successful business leaders have an executive coach in the shadows ensuring they also reach the highest of goals. Having an executive leadership coach is not a luxury, in today’s global environment – it has become a necessity.
What makes coaching different from consulting or mentoring is that coaching provides unparalleled support in helping the client reach his or her goals, unveiling blind spots, guiding the client in the most appropriate direction, and ensuring accountability. The power and potential that coaching provides offers organizational leaders, senior executives, and business owners the tools to achieve optimum performance, execute strategies, improve effectiveness, streamline processes, and ultimately bring clarity.
