There used to be a commonly held misconception that getting a coach was like admitting failure. Not any more. Like top athletes, executives, leaders and managers use coaching to get the best performance from themselves and their teams. A coach will walk alongside you at key moments during your life and career, guiding you by asking you breakthrough questions. You will better understand your strengths and development areas and decide what you really want. Your coach will hold you accountable in putting your goals into action, help you define your strategies and steps for getting there, and help you measure your progress. You’ll be encouraged to step back and reflect on where you’ve come from, sharpen your tools and check your direction, and move forward towards your goals with renewed vigour and intelligent action.
Coaching is different to a fireside chat: you can expect to be challenged, supported and stretched to become your best self. It offers you an inspirational, objective and committed partnership to achieving the goals you’ve set yourself in life, be these work or personal. In the process, you will feel more confident, insightful, powerful and fulfilled.
