Executive Coaching

My advice to you is to have a coach.

But how could a coach advise you if you’re the best person in the world at what you do?  That’s not what a coach does.  The coach doesn’t have to play the sport as well as you do.  They have to watch you and get you to be your best.

In the business context a coach is somebody who looks at something with another set of eyes, describes it to you in their words, and discusses how to approach the problem.  Once you realize that you can trust him and that he could help you with perspective, you see this as a great idea.

When there is a business conflict you may tend to get holed up into it.  A coach’s general advice will be to rise one step higher, above the person on the other side of the table, and to take the long view.  The reality is that you have to earn leadership from the people that you’re working with and who are working for you.

The title doesn’t mean much unless you can earn their respect as a leader.  Attitudes are contagious.
