Benefits of Executive Coaching

Here are 10 benefits of executive coaching you can expect to experience as we work together.
 

1. You will have a confidant. 

You can tell me things you wouldn't tell others, because I am trained to understand and be non-judgmental.  There is trust, safety and confidentiality so you can be real and authentic. 

2. You will see your blind spots. 

Every leader has personal areas that are out of view or awareness until someone points them out. I am perfectly poised to perform this critical function with you.

3. You will get objective feedback. 

Other people may have agendas. I have your best interests in mind in providing honest and straight forward feedback to you.

4. You will have another set of eyes. 

Just as the top performers in the world have coaches to help them see what they themselves can't see, you will have me as another set of eyes so you can have a new perspective.

5. You will have protection through voluntary accountability. 

I will help you focus on the outcomes you want by having you report on your progress on your action steps.

6. You will have a sounding board. 

I will be another set of ears as you talk about the things that are important to you. As I help you hear yourself, new insights will emerge.

7. You will have another source of creative ideas. 

You can brainstorm and try out new ideas, behaviors and mental processes as I provide a safe place to experiment and explore.

8. You will have renewed energy to create and accelerate your vision. 

I will assist you in developing your plans for success based on your beliefs, values, personal strengths, background and assets.

9. You will be able to celebrate your successes and have a source of strength when you fail. 

I am in your corner and will support and encourage you to press on.  You can fail forward without judgement. 

10. You will recieve help to process life and leadership. 

Life is a process and I will be assisting you by reviewing and reframing what happens in the key areas of your life!
